Playlist 23.01.09

Back in 1984 there was a band from Bangor called Carpenter Joe. Their big song was called 'No Ordinary Joe' and while I don't recall the lyrics exactly, there was a line about how 'Everlasting Love by The Love Affair was the greatest record ever made.

loveaffair2.jpgI was thinking about this as I played the band's other big hit 'Bringing On Back The Good Times' on Friday. Released in 1969, it still sounds wonderful, even if the tune was used as a booze commercial and its freshness compromised. Now that's been forgotten and the voice of teenage Steve Ellis is again apparent. He's been hailed by Paul Weller and was pals with The Who. He may never have been quite as cool as Steve Marriott, but he has a place in the mod pantheon.
