My Song For The Month For August – Kenny Carter – I’ve Gotta Find Her

A recent favourite track of mine and one which I term as chocolate for the ears. Just superb on so many levels.

An article I wrote earlier this year as a follow up to my previous article on those I fondly term my lost tapes based on the music hears at 1980s Mod Rallies. A nice trip down memory lane for those who would like to go for a hour’s wander. πŸ™‚ Special thanks to Rob Cox who kindly provided a Mixcloud upload based on this tape & photo kind permission of Paul Stevens.
