That's an unfortunate tattoo she has there.

ha ha at least she will never forget her name. Ironically, if she were to look in a mirror her name would be xonneL einnA, with appropriately reversed letters. But everybody else would know who she was.

Ah, A Whiter Shade of Pale is still one of my all-time favorites. What a great sound Matthew Fisher's B-3 organ had. As much as I like Annie Lennox, some songs whould simply never be covered, and that is one of them. I still have Procol Harum's fitst five LPs. A huge fan, now and forever.

Catman, the first five Procol Harum albums. That sounds a little excessive. I satisfied myself with the first two.

Not as far as I am concerned. I loved that group, the first really successful fusion of classical and rock, and perhaps the first "goth" album. In fact, the fourth album Home has one of my favourite tunes of theirs (Dead Man's Dream). It still sends chills down my spine to think of it.

OK Catman I was in fact a little rude. One's taste is one's taste. I offer an example of my taste. It is open to debate but I think you will agree that it has merit. I also would like some help finding The Dead Man's Dream on you tube I only found stuff that was to my mind shaky.



The Stax/Volt museum is incredible. So much good music came out of that place it should be a national park.

"If it wasn't for bad luck I wouldn't have no luck at all" Albert King at the guitar. Booker T. Jones and William Bell providing the words and music. Reason enough that the Stax/Volt museum should be a national monument.

I will not rest my case unless someone concedes. I will post all kinds of songs that you will all know.

I will suggest that one check out the youtube videos from the Stax/Volt tour to europe in 1967. Otis was particularly good.

Sure, I like Sweet Soul Music, although it isn't at the very top of the soul pantheon IMO. I loved Otis' singing, as well as Wilson Pickett and James Brown. The latter's Cold Sweat and I Can't Stand Myself (When You Touch Me) are probably at the top for me.

OK catman I offer another song. I would ask that you respond. I need to broaden my musical experience.

And Skeeve keep your hands off of this or I might have to hunt you down.

This last sentence said in jest.

As one of the comments stated, Hold On, I'm Comin' is a timeless classic, although I think it was taken too fast. I have played it on bass several times on gigs. The 45 rpm record was at a much slower tempo and sounded better for it. Sam & Dave were not in the same class of singer as Otis Redding, who was almost incomparable IMO. Try A Little Tenderness is perhaps his finest effort, although it too was taken awfully fast. Sitting on the Dock of the Bay and Tramp (with Carla Thomas) are my other favorites by Otis.
