RossyBoy's Over And Out


A Black Friday - unlucky for some ! I'm sorry to say that this is my very last solo compilation. It's been more than 5 years since the first one I ever put together, Prime Cuts, in early May 2009 on the original TVD blog. I've had a couple of false endings before, but this really is it.

I loved sharing my taste over the past five years and it never seemed like hard work. Here's the last comp. It's the usual eclectic mix you may have come to expect by now - a bumper bundle of my favorites. In the past I've deliberately left out label, year, album info as the intention was that, if you found something of interest, you would do some further research yourself. But, as a parting gift, all the sources are detailed this time. I hope you enjoy it. RossyBoy

RossyBoy's Second Chances




Another bundle of cover versions .... 
maybe I should stop noticing them coz every time I stumble across one I just have to set it aside ! 
Just a word on a couple of the artists. 
Another fellow Scotsman on track #02 - Chris McClure was big at home in the Sixties; any of you U.K. people remember the TV music program "Stramash" ?!? 
And Irishman Andrew Strong on track #21 was the lead singer in the Dublin Soul band "The Commitments" - was that movie really 20 years ago ?!? 
Strong was only 17 years old at the time of the movie; his father was a well-known Irish Showband singer in his day.

RossyBoy's Frozen In Time




There may be a few surprises in this one. I'm thinking primarily of my fellow Scotsman Paolo Nutini (he's of Italian descent) whose latest album "Caustic Love" is top of the pop album charts in the U.K. at the moment. Any modern artist who knows enough about our Soul world to duet with Betty LaVette and sample Gladys Knight is worth a listen in my book; I've almagamated two of his tracks here. The second version of "Let's Straighten It Out" here features The Mighty Hannibal in his final recording before he, sadly, passed away earlier this year. Just goes to show, our music is NOT frozen in time but is still evolving, with newcomers dropping in to replace the stalwarts of yesteryear. I'm on vacation at the moment, so I hope you enjoy this while I'm away !
