Soulful Grooves From The Crates

'Dreamer' / Bobby Bland (1974)
A few new songs, a couple of tracks from flea market records and some classics, those are the soulful grooves from the crates! One of them is 'I wouldn't treat a dog' by Bobby Bland. This great song is from his album 'Dreamer' that was arranged by multiple Grammy Award winner Michael Omartian. The beautiful yacht picture is in the gatefold of the original lp.

King of the medley, James (Hansi) Last, who passed away last week, could be a funky guy too from time to time! I remember him as the conductor who was more interested in his audience than in his musicians. He was always smiling to the crowd and conducting with his back to the orchestra. He really enjoyed the music and knew that his musicians could play their parts. He tried to transfer his joy to his listeners and he never failed.

Enjoy this first part in the Grooves From The Crates series!
