    I'm not mad at the Benny Gordon version.

  • Can we get a little love for "Don't Wanna Be A Playboy"?

    Nazz does "The Loosen Up" which is more of a parody I suppose

    Oh and I found some 12" recently from like 1990 thats got some NC group w/Archie Bell doing a cover... but it was not so good

    The Bamboos recently did a great cover, with a flute lead.

    Our soul nights here have been leaning to the northern side of things lately, and AB&TD's "Balloons Going Up" and "Go For What You Know" sound pretty good in that context. Great upbeat tunes.

    thee midniters do a live version of tighten up that's pretty scorching.

    the original is boss though. archie bell is great

  • I heard Archie Bell put out a solo LP during the late 70's which has eluded me for years.

    Does anyone have it? Any good? Worth dropping some chedda?
