      Playlist for Memphis to Manchester on October 28, 2004

      Key: Artist - Title - Album - +=Request *=New

      Barbara Randolph - Can I Get A Witness - Marvel Of Marvin*
      [ For the price of a single CD, you get one CD with choice
      Marvin Gaye soul covers recorded in the 60s & 70s from the likes of
      Otis Redding & Carla Thomas, Fred Wesley & The JBs, Pucho & The Latin
      Soul Brothers, Gladys Knight, etc. and a second CD with a 41 minute
      mix set of many of the tracks by 4 Hero. This mix combines a live
      introduction and music interlude of Marvin Gaye with this terrific
      cover by Barbara Randolph. ]

      James & Bobby Purify - I'm Your Puppet - Shake A Tail Feather!

      Ike & Tina Turner - Am I A Fool In Love - The Soul Of Sue: The UK
      Sue Label Story Vol. 2*
      [ This is a brand new compilation which features 25 tracks of
      soul released by the UK label in the 60s. This label was run by Guy
      Stevens who also was noted for being the manic producer of "London
      Calling" by The Clash, as a DJ in the 60s who supplied the Rolling
      Stones and other English musical artists with obscure soul & R&B
      recordings, and for producing Mott The Hoople. ]

      on this box set. ]

      Nick Lowe - And So It Goes - Pure Pop For Now People
      [ Nick Lowe mania continues. ]

      -------- - -------- - --------

      Bruce Springsteen - My Ride's Here - Enjoy Every Sandwich: The
      Songs Of Warren Zevon*
      [ I saw this when I came into the studio and figured this track
      ought to really work. This is a live recording and that's about all I
      can tell you since I got a phone call during the song and missed most
      of it. How's that for hard-hitting analysis? ]

      The Invincibles - Nobody - Double Shot Of Soul*
      [ The Invincibles did a soul classic called "Heart Full Of Love"
      and that's all I've ever heard from them until this more upbeat song
      appearing on this new compilation which features soul recordings put
      out on the Los Angeles-based Double Shot label and it's Whiz
      subsidiary between 1967-70. ]
