Summer Soul Station Part 6: Boat Ride
Welcome to the Summer Soul Station yacht! And one of the best places to sail to is the southern part of France, of course. Canadian singer Zwol discovers an interesting thing there. According to him ‘the ladies wear no pants’ at that particular part. Listen to the lyrics and you know what I mean… ;-) I like 'Stop still' from Dutch guy Allan Jeffers that I play in this mix. It went to #24 on the Dutch charts in 1978. The original is from the Chi-Lites, as Nicolas Drosos told me. The cover version from Allan Jeffers was produced by Martin Duiser. He would work with Sting, Andrea Bocelli, Joe Cocker, Gary Brooker, Toto, Simple Minds and Alan Parsons later on in his career.
'Rise' from Herb Alpert is a great disco track! He made a jazz album together with his wife Lani Hall not long ago.
The Breakaway track is from my favourite compilation album of the moment, ‘Americana Rock Your Soul’. Check it out, if you can!
Next time the theme will be 'Aurora, soundtrack to sunrise' and the music will be quite mellow and funky chill. I will play new material from Washed Out, Azymuth and good old Bootsy Collins. Picture above from Photonaturals. Enjoy!
