A 45 A Day (Day 13)

Day 13

Few can boast a career as long as Little Anthony & The Imperials, forming in the late 50’s as a Doo Wop/R&B combo to being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 2009. The 45 that I’ve chosen for today, is their version of “Let The Sunshine In”, which was composed by Galt MacDermot (who wrote the music to the hit musical “Hair”). The vocal on this cover drips with energy & sweat & I think this is my favorite version of this track.

A 45 A Day (Day 9)

Day 9

Few can lay claim to shaping modern music in the way Little Richard has, from playing a major part in the foundation of Rock ‘n’ Roll, to his wild on stage antics, he really deserves the title of a legend. “Hurry Sundown”¬†features in the film of the same title, & was composed by Buddy Kaye & Hugo Montenegro. This is a beautiful song that lifts & builds, & Little Richards vocal is soaked in soul, makes you want to testify!
