Quincey Jones - Soul Bossa Nova.Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 - Mas Que Nada. Absolute classic.Jimmy Lipscombe - Pow Pow Pow, a soul version of Mas Que Nada. I don't know how well known it was in the 60s, but it's certainly in the record boxes of a few Northern Soulies.The earlier mods I knew (mates of my mate next door in Blackpool) were into Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto and the like. Of course there's this modern jazz cracker by Dave Brubeck. I just love Joe Morello's drumming...

There was a bit of a crossover within the West Indian / Black British community, inasmuch as you might have seen a Rastafarian steel band - like I saw in the early 80s in Toxteth (Liverpool) - playing rather ponderous, serious Dreadlock reggae ("I and I... Babylon downpress I... Jah smite dem..." that kind of stuff).

Don't speak too soon - Johnny's mop hides a 2.5cm centre parting!
No - a fcuking conversation about fcuking Ben E King at the fcuking Twisted Wheel in fcuking Manchester!
Two coincidences: 1) Mike Garry, John's support act last night, mentioned Richard Hell and the Voidoids, and 2) I own a Telecaster.
That would explain it.
