This week’s show pays tribute to Bob Brunning, who sadly passed away in 2011. Bob Brunning was the first bass-player with Fleetwood Mac alongside Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and Jeremy Spencer – the line-up that played the famous Windsor Jazz and Blues festival in 1967. He left soon afterwards, as the seat was actually reserved for John McVie. We have selected tracks from the many bands he played bass in: Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac * Savoy Brown * The Brunning Sunflower Blues Band  with Peter Green * Tramp feat.  Jo-Ann Kelly and Bob Hall * The last De Luxe Blues Band’s record *

THE BEACH BOYS Box Set ‘Thirty Years – Good Vibrations’.
(…)This box contains the heart and soul of the Beach Boys music. The hits are here along with some cool songs that didn’t come out as singles…some not even as records at all. We’ve even included some of the Smile sessions so that you see that as well as straight ahead stuff, we also have a crazy side to us. You’ll also hear us live and in concert with all the flaws. No matter which side you prefer, just remember when you listen to this music, you’re hearing us at our best. To me, the best part of the whole Beach Boys experience, was the excitement that the boys and I whipped up together. It’s always been infectious, and I’m sure you’ll catch it too as you listen.
So, from me and the guys…my brothers Dennis and Carl, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks…and all the musicians who helped make this magic music…enjoy!
Sincerely, Brian Wilson, March, 1993”

‘Ghetto Child’ is a good example of how not to compile an artist. BUT: the music’s good! “ (…)Now, having aired all those complaints, the music is very good. These are fiery, committed performances in which the songs and arrangements often veer as much toward soul as toward blues. That’s something that works to Copeland’s advantage, both because he was versatile enough to combine styles well, and because it made him stand out from legions of other journeymen bluesmen. The 1960-71 material is particularly fine for its raw and unusual qualities. 1971’s “Ghetto Child,” for instance, has a searing wobbly organ that sounds like it was lifted from a warped Animals record, and its flip side, “Soul Power,” has respectable funk rock influences. The 1963-64 cuts benefit from some Bobby  Blue Bland-quality horn parts, and “May the Best Man Win” has some great unexpected descending chord changes, set to a Latinesque beat” (…) Quoted From / All Rights Reserved: Richard Unterberger at
