I'm off on my travels again later today, back in about ten days. I have had neither the time nor the mental dexterity to think of a theme for today's post, so I fell back on the traditional "press shuffle on the iPod and see what happens" technique. This is what happened.
I must confess I considered leaving one of these out, but decided not to in the end. It isn't in the spirit of the exercise and, besides, there is no shame in liking Curtis Mayfield.
"Possum Belly Overalls" - June Bateman with Noble 'Thin Man' Watts & His Band
"House On The Hill" - Kevin Coyne
"So In Love" - Curtis Mayfield
"Gone To Negril" - Althea & Donna
"A Taste Of Aggro" - The Barron Knights
"Downey Girl" - Dave Alvin
I had planned to choose the seventh track that turned up for today's video, but I couldn't find any for numbers 7-11. This was No. 12, and it was worth waiting for.
