Piccadilly Radio 261

Thank you Kiss Radio! Today’s favorite was Piccadilly Radio 261 Soul Train and oh my Soul Mamma!!!! This record is electrifying, thank you again Atlantic Records. Such a classic! Percy Sledge is singing When a Man Loves a Woman on this record! Sam & Dave, Otis Redding, Aretha and Wilson Pickett are among the song list. You can hear the one microphone that picked up all the vocals and some sound perhaps live. This record represents the soul music that was shaking the booties of all the club dancers and radio listeners of 1975. There is a picture of a very modest white man on the back named Andy Peebles. In a round about way I think it is honoring him as one of the many radio dj’s who tirelessly promoted new music on the radio. Piccadilly Radio was actually the first of Manchester’s Independent Local Radio stations which became Key 103 in the early 90’s. Even though some of these songs were published long before 1975. Whatever the story is, it’s my favorite so far on this listening train….gimme some more soul...

So I have a huge pile of records to plow through and decided to start from the bottom up. I have alot of easy listening to do it looks like in the first row. I started with The New Seekers…ah…the irony!!   In five words or less? Today’s records were somewhat uneventful. The New Seekers “We’d Like to Teach the World to Sing,” Barbara Streisand’s “The Third Album,” a Classic, “Gold” by yes, the manly man, Frankie Valli followed by The Chrysalis Compendium’s 2nd Volume. What they all had in common were perfectly presented vocals. Barbara’s voice is angelic and has a quiet innocence about it. The Producer _______ wrote a note on the back about the first time he saw her sing opening her Las Vegas opening act with a soft ballad. Why did it work? Because she’s Barbara!! She can burb on stage and we will love it! Her voice is as original as they get! I don’t want to declare that they weren’t good but let’s be real here, they didn’t take my concentration off work! Nothing had yet hit me like Al Green’s Cream. Every song is beautifully arranged and played; so fluid!! An added bonus is I had never heard him sing Unchained Melody before. He didn’t spew all over it like so many have...
