Disco legend Donna Summer died this morning in Florida at the age of 63. The singer had been battling cancer for some time.
We all know the classics, but I have a particular liking for this collaboration with John Barry, who I’ve mentioned
before on this blog.

And this is one of my all time favourite songs….CHOON!…

I’m liking the look of this….
Northern Soul : A Film
I’ve been trying to think of a quicker way to digitize my record collection, and also post the killas on this blog, but instead of wading through shelves and boxes to find ’em, I’ve decided to blindly pick out a record/CD,and no matter what it is, or it’s condition, digitize it and share it with you. So, here is the first Random Selection….
Begger Round Town by Gladstone and the Ducanes (Mid-Night 1975)
Here (for a limited period)
Don’t know much about this artist and can’t find much on t’internet. If you have any info please share it.
After listening to another
interview with Brian Eno (the dude must have something to sell) on his love of Gospel music, I just had to dig deep and find this 7″ single to share with y’all, because every time I come across it, and drop the needle on dem dare grooves, it puts a big smile on my face. And we could all do with a bit of that in these troubled times.

My attempt at taking a few photos of the lunar eclipse whilst in Sicily. I had difficulty manually focusing and achieving a sharp image (could do with a few tips) – all this automatic ting and ting makes ya lazy!

The trusty ‘Builders’ DAB radio never fails to please – just love the fact that one can find out instantly what is being played…..
I’ve been lovin ‘Twice’ (Aaron Jerome Remix) by Little Dragon for sometime now, and now I’ve heard Ritual Union, I think an album purchase is in order.
