OSCAR HARRIS AND THE TWINKLE STARS, Whole lot of dances, 1966Posted: July 10, 2008
Just a short post this week because I was occupied with a new blog I`ve been doing. It`s a little esoteric in nature but so is this blog, so if you are a bit open minded you might want to check out Berlin DIY HC Punk.
On to the music. When I bought this record I didn`t know what it was and when I listened to it at home the Twinkle Stars` kind of soul music sounded really cool but still made me curious. This was not the usual “Northern-Soul” sound.
After a little investigation it turns out Oscar Harris is from Suriname, South America. Oscar Harris was born in Suriname in 1943 and came to Holland when he was 20 years old. He had a long career in Holland and still performs today.
Either way, some nice soul music from Holland via Suriname from Oscar Harris and the Twinkle Stars!
