The record I bring you today comes courtesy of an artist that I featured way back at the very beginning of Gazfunk (5 years ago – wow!) – Mr Phil Flowers. You may remember the song I selected then, a rousing cover of Bob Dylans’ “Like A Rolling Stone”. Well,today’s pick is yet another cover, this time it’s his take on The Beatles classic “I Saw Her Standing There”.
Those Beatles fans among you will doubtless be aware that it was the anniversary of George Harrison’s passing last week, so I figured this track would be a fitting tribute to the man. I’m sure you’ll dig it!
This week also brings the last of my Soul Party radio show for the year as I’m taking a well-earned break over Christmas. With that in mind, it will be something of a yuletide special with Christmas themed songs by a variety of artists including James Brown, The Jive Turkeys, Binky Griptite and Clarence Carter. I hope you can join me (don’t worry, it’ll be a Mariah free zone!)
