Twice a year Ford and I exchange compilations to keep us both more informed about the stupid amount of music we miss all the time. While I miss tapes and their 90 minute running time, I can't deny the future rocks, and since he's posted his compilation, I might as well post mine.

It's a broadly funky set, with only a small dip in the middle to allow for Jenny Lewis. Tracks below, get it here. And if you can't be arsed to wade through it all, I'd advise you to get on your good foot, fire up the P2P and download It's My Thing by Marva Whitney, cos not even JB himself can be that insistent and in your face.

Mother Popcorn - James Brown
It's My Thing - Marva Whitney
Change My Thoughts From You - Erma Franklin
Proud Mary - Solomon Burke
When The Meth Comes Marching In - dj BC
How High The Moon - Slim Galliard

I'm still digesting much of the funk, though I like it. Never been keen on Kirtsy MacColl but the Jenny Lewis and Yer Woman from ABBA are top. I own a D.J. Krush album which just goes to show how our tastes overlap sometimes.

Mod, now that I've heard both compilations, I can only conclude that there are no similarities at all between you and Ford's music tastes. Strange that, given you're such good friends. Well, probably not so much strange as interesting.

We do share some tastes, eg Peej and Tom Waits, but it's the differences
that makes the comps good. And I've gone off indie since I've discovered all the soul to be dloaded for free on tinternet, too.
