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.

Discerning, refreshing and a welcome addition to the site, these articles are the transcripts from original Italian Mod friends Andrea Mattioni and Italo Adriano 😊
