More Soul

spk-781-frontspk-781-backspk-781-1spk-781-2More “soul” from the Elite Boys, these supposedly French cats. And it´s another mixed bag of pop tunes/cover versions released by the Swedish Gala record club in the late 60s: more Tom Jones – Delilah;  an instrumental version of Bobby Goldsboro´s HoneyMohair Sam, a hit for Charlie Rich in 1965;  Baby come back a hit for the Equals in 1968;  an instrumental version of Otis Redding´s The dock of the bay and an early hit by the Bee Gees from 1966, Spicks and specks.

I know it´s not the most original choice of material to post and I promise to dig a little deeper in the future but meanwhile just listen to the funny little accents:


THE ELITE BOYS, Delilah


THE ELITE BOYS, Honey


THE ELITE BOYS, Mohair


THE ELITE BOYS, Baby come back


THE ELITE BOYS, The dock of the bay


THE ELITE BOYS, Spicks and specks

    I thought these were really good posts. Why did you apologize?

    I’m not sure if I would file most of these tracks under “Soul,” but I guess things were different in Sweden.

    I guess, even though I really like these records budget records, I still feel defensive because I KNOW more sophisticated music fans and collectors will only shake their heads. But you´re right: Why apologize?
