They called him the black Beatle

I'd been searching for my Earth, Wind and Fire CD, which I'd bought on holiday in the States after hearing their songs at a party in Seattle (hi Mike!).

I haven't been able to find it, but I did find my Stevie Wonder compilation. I remember spending hours doing housework to songs like "For once in my life" and "Ma Cherie Amour" (which isn't as pathetic as it sounds...I think).

It made a nice change from Bach (relaxing music for helping TLM to nap when she's in the hammock) and the Wiggles Movie soundtrack. In fact, TLM really got into it, once she got over the shock of seeing me bob up and down and shake my head (that is, dance).

If I'd known she'd enjoy it so much, I'd have played a lot less Wiggles.

I love "My Cherie Amour". Great guitar parts in that song.
I thought Billy Preston was the black Beatle.

Errm, I only have E,W and F on vinyl...somewhere...
You should try TLM out on disco treats like "Disco Inferno" (the 10 minute version), "Bad Girls", "Thank God It's Friday", "Carwash" (the original version), "Funky Town", and anything by the KC and the Sunshine Band or the Village People - she'll be one grooooovy baby!

nigel: well you could be right and I could be wrong. Some guy told me it was Stevie, but he was no rock historian...

desiree: I'd love to be able to play my Prince CD again, but I suppose it's not going to be appropriate for another 20 years.
