As often happens, the Random 10 is a debate on the topic of whether Matty Boy is merely elderly or incredibly ancient. It's Sixties Pop vs. Eighties Punk/New Wave here at Lotsa 'Splainin', and the 1960's win. The slightly more modern rockers even wave the white flag at the end, with Long Island's Finest doing a cover of a 1960's psychedelic tune.
Seven of ten, not bad odds. The You Tubes is still very slim on music from William Bell, though interestingly, there are covers of his tunes and people in the comments wonder if the originals can be found. Glad to see I'm not the only one who knows about William Bell, a truly under-rated soul singer on the Stax/Volt label.
Have a nice weekend.
