Just came across this (have to admit Scorpio posted it on her FB account) but never heard it before and couldn't believe how good it is you'll need about 10 and half minutes but time very well spent.
Nina Simone - Sinnerman

Got any more ?

Don't know if this is a little gem but it's a damn fine rarity.

Back in the early 70s my mum bought a single called Hey Mister I Can't See You. It was a fine record, but on the B side was this one, and it blew me away. If you're not a fan of vibrato, you'll not like this because she goes over the top with it, but for me it works wonderfully well with the strings. I never tire of hearing it.

I love Mogwai, Scorps introduced me to them. She's a little treasure isn't she?

Some nice bits and pieces on here, particularly since The Stooges and Hendrix are without compare.

Nina Simone is so intense that I find it hard to listen to much more than one or two tracks at a single sitting. I love this, seldom found on any greatest hits collections so not so well known.

Funkier than a mosquito's tweeter (great drum break): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zwk7DWq_E3s

And here's a british funk band who were very often sampled - this is slightly less well known. Cymande - The Message:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yz3Ds0JABsM

I've got the original 45 of this on Ork records, Television's first release. Despite what it says on YT, it actually wasn't on the original release of Marquee Moon but made it onto one of the re-release bonus CD's.

Great posts gents, Peter Haycock is new on me but nice song all the same. I didn't know Jimi did a version of Gloria, i'm inclined to say I prefer his version to the Doors one, Patti Smith does my favourite version.
I have that Cymande track on a compilation album didn't know they were British, they certainly don't sound it.

got some oldies for my birthday and out of all the cd's I got it would seem that Leonard Cohen is not letting any one else get a look in
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiN7bQzceyA&feature=related
I could post loads of his tracks but this one is one of my personal favourites, and a little less obvious than the Partisan for me to post although obviously it is great. What a story teller he is, I watched the programme of his live shows from a few years ago some of the versions he played were better than the originals.

Bob who? I say

Love the Cohen but he's the same as Nina Simone - pleasurable but small doses.

Sounds like an interesting comp. with Cymande. The other two best known tracks are these:

'Bra': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0PGevRRHtw

and 'Brothers on the Slide': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jj9hG71Cn4Q

Since that's put me in a funky mood, this is the current favourite in the maxmobile, particularly with the son. This is the short version - the version we have is 12 minutes+ and might just be my favourite track of all time, bar none: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyKmBX6PCzA

Actually I have Bra as well, Bra is on a house mix cd by Jazzy Jeff (yes of and fresh prince fame) a great mix cd and the message is on a cheap and cheerful cd called we got the funk which has Parliament, Positive Force, chairmen of the board and other funky tracks.

you're wrong about LC. "I'm your man" on the way home tonight, although to be honest I think I slightly prefer Nick Caves version of that

I like that lots and I've always enjoyed Nils Lofgren's music as much as that of his much more famous employers (Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen).

I wuz looking for "Love Minus Zero" that Dylan did at the Sony studios live in NY but it's been taken off the Tuber.

This is a fair effort by Rodders though - and I ain't his greatest fan.

Reading a rather weird biography of reggae singer Dennis Brown by Penny Reel. The language is slightly pretentious English mixed up with Jamaican.

Anyway, great singer and died very young at 42.

I love most of his music but I've been humming the release that he hoped might follow 'Money In My Pocket' as a pop hit for A&M records. It never did, but his wonderful warm voice floats over a great rythmn and it's a great little gem IMO.

Good stuff Max.

A mem-sahib long ago gave me a tape of this guy, now sadly lost.

I remember this one though:
