The Show: Summer of Soul, Winter of Discontent

The start and finish of today’s show mirrors the start and finish of the new “Summer Of Soul” documentary.

Both open with The Chamber Brothers’ “Uptown”  and the climaxes are identical (because we ripped the last 5 minutes directly from the soundtrack).

That ending does feature a snippet from a ripping Sly & The Family Stone performance and some wistful, tearful, bemused and resigned reminiscences as to why the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival was forgotten whilst other (lesser) festivals from the same period stole the limelight.

We’ve not seen a better music documentary for years but don’t just take it from us, watch BBC Radio 5 Live’s Mark Kermode sing it’s praises.

For more of the back story on the festival listen to director Questlove’s interview on NPR’s Fresh Air.

And for those who are counting – that’s two versions of “Gloria” that have made their way onto the The Joint playlist in just over a month. When we gave an outing to the 1979 Umberto Tozzi original 6 weeks ago we didn’t know Angel Olsen was planning to release her own cover in July. You can’t keep a good tune down.

And on with the show…

The Show: Fruit Salad

Cover versions open and close this week’s show.

We kicked off with Frankie Rose’s (almost) note perfect copy of The Cure’s “A Forest”. Always had a soft spot for the original since seeing it performed on Top Of The Pops with the drummer sitting in front of the group. Revolutionary stuff.

On a more sobering note, this recent take on a 41 year old song would equate to The Cure, back in 1980, covering the likes of Glenn Miller or Gene Autry.

And the Wiggles brought the curtain down by going slightly off-piste with Tame Impala’s “Elephant.” At least we think it’s off-piste. We certainly don’t remember the “fruit salad” refrain in the original song.

And on with the show…
