Swinging Times

A compilation called "Hide And Seek" was released last year that purports to be a collection of "British blue-eyed soul" from the 1960s. To these ears there is not a lot on there you could call soul, blue-eyed or otherwise, but there are a lot of groovy tunes. Like these two.

"Our Love Is Getting Stronger" - Jason Knight

"You And Me" - Carl King

According to Wikipedia, Carl King is/was from Beckenham. Other musical residents include David Sylvain, Peter Frampton and one David Bowie, who made his own contribution to the "blue-eyed" soul sound with this. Some fine Dad-dancing at the end as well.
