Re: (TV) Your "soul" music

I have always had a real soft spot for Green/Scritti P.too-in particular the
45's-"sweetest girl","asylums in Jerusalems""wood beez"-when they're this
good they're fabulous...what pop should be...and what a voice!...the latest
disc is such a disappointment all the same (I'm as bewildered as you are
Greg-it's a bit of a dog's dinner to say the least) though it does contain
one absolutely killer song which I urge the faithful to track down and
hear-"brushed with oil,dusted with powder"- a real gem...
As for the one soul-fixing record that will always pull me out of a dark
place and restore my faith once more in humanity it has to be "Astral Weeks"
by Van Morrison...for instant stress -relief  "kinda blue"usually
works...and for getting me through London rush hour traffic without
murdering fellow drivers (or pedestrians)the first two Ron Sexsmith albums
back to back...
