A not often heard piece of Marvin's vocal mastery but one I've loved over the years

Conway Twitty - Rainy Night In Georgia ft. Sam Moore

Two greats doing a fine job on this classic tune. Always showing that country and soul are closely related.

Yes, that feeling can be both things at once...that is not a bad thing that it's raining all over the world, that hush of small rain on late summer's eve, washing, restoring and dampening down the dusty parts of life...and again rainy night can be such a sad thing...

dolly parton doing the beatles help

I am an unabashed Dolly fan...! She's real people and I've had the pleasure both see her perform many times and chat with her briefly on a flight out of London.

Van Morrison - And It Stoned Me

Was just a ruminatin' and reminiscin' on the wonderful tales of Van told to us by dear Richard Flohil and listening to Van sing. The story of Chris Barber playing with him was very ironic indeed considering we got back to London to find a BBC radio special on Mr. Chris Barber.

Caetano Veloso- Cucurrucu Paloma

I love this tune -- originally from Mexico -- it's a classic example of how the song as a whole and not it's lyrics that make it such a wonderful moment!
