19/7/15 – Cilla Black – It’s For You – 1964 – Love Of The Loved – 1963 – Step Inside Love – 1968 / The Beatles – Love Of The Loved – 1962 / Cilla Black – Alfie – 1966

Cilla Black, the essence of Liverpool, ex Cavern cloakroom assistant, Beatles pal and down to earth pop star from the infamous Scottie Road – and with the most distinctive voice you’ve ever heard! Of these three Lennon and McCartney recordings mostly written by Paul, It’s For You and Love Of The Loved are largely forgotten, the most […]

Peter And Gordon 1966

14/7/15 – Peter And Gordon – Woman – 1966

Staying on Peter And Gordon for Paul McCartney’s experiment, it seems that with the massive success of The Beatles he was beginning to wonder if he was having hits outside The Beatles just because he was in The Beatles. So he came up with a pseudonym and Bernard Webb was born. This from Wikipedia: Under the Lennon–McCartney moniker, […]

Percy Sledge - When A Man Loves A Woman Cover Art 1966

21/4/15 – Percy Sledge – 25th November 1941 – 14th April 2015 / When A Man Loves A Woman – 1966

In the wrong hands, When A Man Loves A Woman might be considered the ultimate in schmaltz, but when Sledge sang it with that powerful emotionally charged voice, he gave the song such anguish, such truth that you could feel it too and literally live through the pain of the break-up he himself had gone through. Overplayed to […]
