Good morning blog fans! Summers finally arrived in London so I couldn't let the recent version excursion frenzy pass without a visit to my Lovers Rock and Rocksteady crates for some reggae versions of old much loved tunes.
Jennifer Lara and Barry Biggs both cover 80's soul anthems, Paulette Tajah does Billy Paul, and we have Trevor Sparks' take on Jefferey Osborne plus many more soul n pop, reggae style versions.
Finally a 'big up' to the guys who organised a free family music festival in my local London park yesterday. They had old school soul bands like Heatwave and Odyssey on the bill and was a bit surreal 2 stepping along to 'Don't tell me, tell her' not half a mile from my front door but most enjoyable!
SoulNRnB up next and I'll be back with more rare groove niceness.
