Playlist 11.01.10

Stuart Bailie | 20:58 UK time, Wednesday, 13 January 2010

It was released in 1966, it is regarded as a fine example of Northern Soul and the act was called Margo And The Marvettes. The vocal is sweetly doused in the spirit of Dusty and the singer came all the way from... Donaghadee.

Really. Margo Burns is one of the nearly people of pop music. She grazed the charts a few times, and 'When Love Slips Away' deserved better. She repeatedly changed her name at the behest of silly record company executives and tried a few musical styles along the way. As far as I know she has a livelihood in Mallorca, but I'd welcome any further information.
