Groovy, Sexy & Soulful Part 47 Mellow Morning Edition

One of the tracks is 'Sideway shuffle' by Linda Lewis. She started as a soulful folk singer (Minnie Riperton style), but became a pop/disco singer later on. She sang in the background choir of 'Make me smile' by Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel and she claims to have done the backing vocals on 'Do ya think I'm sexy' by Rod Stewart as well (both bands included guitar player Jim Cregan, then husband of Lewis). On my Facebook page she wrote that she's still waiting to be paid by Rod!

I like the version of Icebear/Eisbär by French singer Petite Meller, but the one from Nouvelle Vague is nice too. The 1981 original is from Grauzone. It's a song about trying not to feel any pain. By the way, on the 27th of February it was International Polar Bear Day.

Enjoy this mellow morning part of ‘Groovy, sexy and soulful’!
