Some words from Paul....

"A LITTLE BIT OF INFO. THERE USED TO BE A REALLY GREAT RADIO PROGRAMME ON BBC RADIO LONDON BACK IN THE DAY, "HONKY TONK" HOSTED BY RENOWNED AUTHOR, RECORD PRODUCER AND MUSIC EXPERT CHARLIE GILLETT. I LEARNED MORE ABOUT MUSIC FROM THAT PROGRAMME THAN ANY BEFORE OR SINCE. HE USED TO PLAY A HUGE AMOUNT OF RHYTHM AND BLUES, ROCK AND ROLL AND MODERN (AT THAT TIME) FUNK AND SOUL. I FIRST HEARD "BIG CHIEF" BY PROFESSOR LONGHAIR AND THE JB'S "HOT PANTS ROAD" THROUGH HIM. MANY YEARS WENT BY AND I GOT INTO OTHER THINGS AND RADIO LONDON BECAME RADIO BIGOT. I WENT TO JAPAN WITH GAZ "ROCKIN BLUES" MAYALL IN 1986 WHERE WE BOTH WERE DJ'ING , ME JAZZ, LATIN ETC, HIM PLAYING 1950'S BLACK RHYTHM AND BLUES. HE BLEW MY MIND COMPLETELY WITH HIS TUNES. WHEN I CAME BACK I STARTED TO BUY 'EM AND PLAY 'EM IN THE CLUBS I WAS DJ'ING AT, THE "SOL Y SOMBRA" IN CHARLOTTE STREET, LONDON AND ALSO PLAYING THEM AT A WEST INDIAN "BLUES" IN EUSTON ROAD WHERE THE OLD DUDES TAUGHT ME A HELL OF A LOT ABOUT THE ROOTS OF REGGAE.."ITS ARRL FROM ROSCOE GORDON AND BILL DOGGETT MARN!"... BUT THATS ANOTHER STORY..

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE MUSIC. ETTA JAMES (WHO IS CURRENTLY BEING PORTRAYED BY POP SINGER BEYONCE IN THE FILM "CADILLAC RECORDS" WHICH I WOULD'NT ADVISE YOU TO WASTE YOUR MONEY ON. ITS ABOUT THE SAME QUALITY AS A "TV MOVIE OF THE WEEK") WITH AN EARLY HIT.

BARBIE GAYE PERFORMS THE ORIGINAL OF MILLIE SMALLS "MY BOY LOLLIPOP" NOW EVEN BETTER KNOIWN THROUGH A FLASH MOB AD FOR T MOBILE. RISQUE LYRICS FROM FLUFFY HUNTER BUT STILL PLAYABLE IN FRONT OF YOUR MUM.

AN ORIGINAL VERSION OF ALLIGATOR FROM BOBBY CHARLES , TWO JOHNNY G WATSON TRACKS JUST 'COS I LIKE 'EM THE ORIGINAL OF JAMES BROWN FUNK FAVE "THINK" AND FINISHING OFF WITH A REAL RIOT.

GLAD TO SEE MR KEB DARGE PLAYING THESE SOUNDS.. ROCK ON KEB."
