Loleatta Holloway ‘Catch Me On The Rebound’. Salsoul 12-inch with great accapella and dub mixes on the B-side.
Johnnie Allan ‘Promised Land’. Oval 7-inch. Uplifting Cajun version of great Chuck Berry song.
‘Sounds of Shunting’. Argo Transacord 7-inch EP of trains and locomotives, first played to me by Martin Davidson who pretended it was a new improvising percussionist.
The Crystals ‘I Wonder’. Less-known Phil Spector-produced 7-inch with a strange whooshing noise in the background. Magnificent.
