September Playlist

One thought on “September Playlist”

  1. A list to put a glide in one’s stride whatever the weather! ‘P F Sloan’ has long been a favourite – since hearing Jimmy Webb’s original over 50 years ago. I’d clean forgotten about Kimmie Rhodes until last week when we picked up a (rather good) Kieran Goss album produced by her son Gabe and on which she provides some backing vocals. Weird symmetry would be achieved if the version of ‘Central Reservation’ was the Benn Watt Then Again Remix. Keep safe. J&T
