This album got mentioned in passing last week, and I’ve not posted anything from it for a good while, so it’ll be no surprise to you to see it resurface today, still less of a shock to see this morning’s tune features one of those titles that you only find in Country music:
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – Losin’ You Might Be the Best Thing Yet
Back when I was a teenager, as I have written before, I joined Brittania Music, a mail order company who lured me in with an offer of three albums for a tenner, or something similar.
I used the service mostly to buy a load of Greatest Hits and Best Of albums by older acts I knew one or two songs by and craved more.
Consequently, I soon owned records that none of my peers did: Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and tonight’s artiste.
This isn’t my favourite song by her, but it was one of two that I knew and which drew me to her, and it is bloody magnificent:
Dusty Springfield – You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me
And lo! A nerd was born.
