Nat Hall – You Don’t Know (Just How I Feel)
Issued on the Loop Records label in 1966 and the flip side to Why by Nat Hall. Arranged by Booby Parker with a distinctive guitar rift, this is a brilliant slice of 60s R&B.

Mary Wheeler – Fresh Out Of Teardrops
Written by Bruce Scott & Jimmy Radcliffe this was issued on the Calla Records label in 1966. The B side to Prove It, was my final 2+ minutes of speechlessness for 2019. Whilst I don’t have these moments very often, I do experience them where a track stops me dead in my tracks. This was and continues to be one of them. A beautiful 60s Soul ballad on so many levels, I find it totally enamouring.

Articles For November
Continuing part of a series of articles on the site which I have chosen to include regarding European Mods, here are parts 2 and 3 focusing on the 80s Rimini Mod scene. Discerning, refreshing and a welcome addition to the site, these articles are the transcripts from original Italian Mod friends Andrea Mattioni and Italo Adriano 😊
