My Song For The Month – Francis Faye – Comin’ Home Baby
Arranged and conducted by Shorty Rodgers on the Audio Fidelity Records, Inc. label and performed by Francis Faye. This is a fantastic version of the Mod Jazz classic by Mel Torme. Incredibly uplifting and an all round, feelgood track. Blows me away every time I hear it. Superb.

Recommended Mixcloud – Soul Poppin’ by Nit3owl64 / Rob Cox
I am an avid listener of Mixcloud, when I have the time. Of course I have get a discernible pleasure from listening to the many brilliant uploads that music lovers create with an admirable passion of new and old listens. This particular upload is one which I revisit on countless occasions. Compiled by 80s Mod Rally DJ Rob Cox, it evokes a great sense of nostalgia as well as many smiles recollecting the memories from my 80s Mod days. If you have’nt listened to it, I highly recommend you do so. It’s better than any medicine to uplift your mood and give you the opportunity to take that stroll down your 1980s Mod lane.
