Just had a hankering to load up a few Allan Holdsworth albums and let them shuffle play. His music's not for everyone, but it has its own elegant structure, internal logic and beauty if that's your thing.

Since seeing them live on Thursday, I've been listening to a lot of Israel's no1 Soul band, Men of North Country.

Excellent stuff, great brass section that!

Thanks to a retweet from Talking Pictures TV, I have just listened to this for the first time, and I love it!

I remember buying this on cassette when it first came out - 87? 88?

 

Discogs says 1987: https://www.discogs.com/Robson-Banda-And-The-New-Black-Eagles-Ngoma-Ngairire/release/3193820

A bit of Northern Soul

Good choice ... I hadn't heard this before.

Now being the level of dancer I am I'm a bit loathe to criticise but NS dance floors always struck me as resembling failed line dancing classes.

I'm sure that's correct much the same as TGG .... As I said being challenged I don't set out to be critical here but one group of people sort of dancing together mixed up with three hundred other groups and 50 more dancing on their own next to four couples can't be described in very many ways.

Great  track though .... er NS was it the music or the the dancing?

For me whatever, where ever, when ever it was/is always the music.But even my two left feet and wobbly arms and extinct sense of balance thank your for that track!

Well, they are playing at the grand Final, and some of our resident grumpy old gits clearly can't figure out YouTube, so...
