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, Baby come back

THE ELITE BOYS, The dock of the bay

    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?
