Conversations  performed by Cilla Black  1969
Recommended by Mister C [profile]

This was Cilla's longest single, clocking in at over 4 minutes, an oddly paced ballad that gradually builds, it is one of those songs that takes a while to take hold, but once it has you're hooked. This is one of Cilla's best performances on disc, and it deservedly reached No. 7 in the UK in 1969

from The Abbey Road Decade 1963-1973 (EMI 7243 8 57053 2 8)


Town I Live In  performed by Jackie Lee  1966
Recommended by andyjl [profile]

From the singer better-known for the TV theme, White Horses, a fast-paced beat-girl song with a cynical edge about living in a dreary place where “nothing very much ever happens”. Surely one of the few uses of “Etc etc” as part of a chorus.


available on CD - Dream Babes: Vol One


Here Comes the Rain  performed by Trader Horne  1970
Recommended by bubblebeat [profile]

Sensational songwriting from Jackie McAuley. Judy Dyble's sweet harmonies add a layer of delight to this joyously uplifting song. It was sunset on the Greek island of Koufonissi when I first heard this, but thankfully it sounded even better the next time I heard it (on a cold rainy day in Edinburgh).




Without Her  performed by Preston Guild  196?
Recommended by Arthur [profile]

Preston [in fact there is no performer name on this 45 e.p. but this seems to be the label name so its as good as any ] and the band take a minimal take on this Nilsson song and give it a slightly Latin feel. And its Preston's delivery coupled with the organ that make this track essential. Unfortunately the other titles on the e.p. fall short of even interesting

from unknown (Preston Guild)



  05 Feb 03 ·konsu: One of his most covered songs at least in the pop canon.It seems like there's sooo many more versions to be found yet!I'd like to hear this one.Also check out the latinized brilliance of Blood, Sweat & Tears version from their"Child Is Father to the Man" LP. Maybe thats where these guys picked-up the style for their take...?
Honeytree  performed by The Wolfgang Press  1991
Recommended by robert[o] [profile]

A great track from a truly great LP that I fear might have slipped through the cracks in the floorboards in the decade or so since it's release. TWP's "Queer" remains the band masterpiece, an ungodly amalgam of Can, Talking Heads, Roxy Music, King Tubby and De La Soul. This song perfectly highlights the record's/band's strengths - Mark Cox's cut and paste/dub programming, Andrew Gray's blistering guitar, Mick Allen's brilliant "Tom Waits sings the Mark E. Smith Songbook" voice/words, aided by then Throwing Muses Leslie Langston's sexy bass/backgrounds vocals. The song is both seductive and sinister - the spoonful of sugar being the its' "The Fall Plays The Burt Bacharach Songbook" shambling groove that helps down the medicine that is Mick Allen's venomous lyrics in re: America's inaction/indifference in the face of the AIDS crisis. Rarely has subject matter so heavy, been dealt with in such light/deft manner. I recommend the whole "Queer" LP - particularly the British edition , which differs in tracklisting and uses of samples. (It is likewise available on the band's fine - if somewhat short - best of "Everything is Beautiful 1983-1995"

from Queer &/or Everything is Beautiful 1983-1995, available on CD (Queer &/or Everything is Beautiful 1983-1995)



  28 Feb 03 ·konsu: I always liked these guys too. Queer did miss the mark in america for sure, although I think "Going South" got some airplay... I'm a big fan of the Birdwood Cage LP. A very underrated group from a very popular label.
