Groovy, Sexy & Soulful Part 56 Early Morning Edition

Mary Lake
Enjoy this new edition of ‘Groovy, sexy and soulful’! The songs are easy to listen to in the morning, when waking up is hard. The closing track is by Gordon Lightfoot (born November 17, 1938). He is a Canadian singer-songwriter who achieved international success in folk, folk-rock, and country music, and has been credited for helping define the folk-pop sound of the 1960s and 1970s. He experienced chart success in Canada with his own recordings, starting in 1962 with the #3 hit '(Remember Me) I'm the One'. Lightfoot's recordings made an impact on the international music charts in the 1970s, with songs such as 'If You Could Read My Mind' (1970) (#5 on the US chart), 'Sundown' (1974), 'Carefree Highway' (1974), 'Rainy Day People' (1975), all reaching #1, and 'The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald' (1976). In 1981 'If You Could Read My Mind' was covered by disco/soul singer Viola Wills. It reached #3 on the Dutch Top 40.

Young Gun Silver Fox are Shawn Lee and Andy Platts (Mamas Gun). 'West End Coast' is their debut album (out November 13), featuring the single 'You Can Feel It' that was released today:

"On West End Coast, they've fashioned a fresh and modern sound that summons one of the most vibrant and influential epochs in popular music. The ten songs pay homage to 1970s Los Angeles, a golden age of recording that infused the pop charts and FM airwaves with a blend of soulful voices, immaculate melodies, stellar musicianship, and sophisticated studio technology." (Christian John Wikane)
