SETLIST ORGAN ORGY MARCH 5TH 2005, VAAGHUYZEN - 16.00-18.00 CET

General remarks:

A regular visitor spoke out his deep appreciation for our matinees, but said it was too 'organ-like, you know what I mean' this time. Since it was meant to be a tribute to the late Jimmy Smith, we could not disagree more.

Then he told us someone went and hanged himself at hearing Nina Simone, which was even more surprising considering Nina Simone was not played at all...

1. Loan me a dime - Boz Scaggs

For starters - when else could it be played in a club setting? Or on the radio? (We might be back soon on the radio, though).

2. When I was a young girl - Julie Driscoll & Brian Auger & the Trinity

3. Storm of light - Working Week

Dedicated as ever to Lady G.

4. The cat - Jimmy Smith

5. Save me - The Clique

6. Brothers batucada - James Taylor Quartet

7. O grande amor - Walter Wanderley

8. Água de beber - Elsa Laranjeira

New to me: what a voice! Dated 1962, and the official original. This is whom Césaria Évora must have learned it from... And is not that Walter W. playing?

9. Soul deep - Clarence Carter

10. Turn on a dream - The Box Tops

11. Organ grinder's swing - Jimmy Smith

12. Walk on the wild side - Jimmy Smith

13. I 've got a woman - Booker T & the MG's

14. The duck - Billy Preston

15. Bluesette - Toots Thielemans

16. Groggy - Rhoda Scott

17. Hotel Happiness - Jimmy Smith

18. Take me in your arms and love me -The Undisputed Truth

19. Function at the junction - Shorty Long

He is said to be playing organ himself, but we cannot be sure.

20. Think a little Sugar - Barbara Lewis

21. Misty - Richard 'Groove' Holmes

22. In the midnight hour - Little Mac & the Boss Sounds

23. Gasoline Alley - Wynder K. Frog

24. Lost in loveliness - Jimmy Smith

254. Finger lickin' good - Richard Holmes & Jimmy McGriff

26. I put a spell on you - Alan Price Set

27. Let me be your eyes - Timmy Thomas

In this hammond overkill all doubt TT is playing a hammond organ is erased.

28. Turn blue - Jimmy McGriff

29. Hole in the wall - The Packers

30. Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf - Jimmy Smith

31. I take what I want - The Artwoods

32. What'd I say - Ray Charles

His electric piano being declared honorary organ posthumously...

In Lady Godiva's 18.00-19.15 slot Earl Vandyke Six by six was included...

A despatch from a viewer:

The Boogaloo Investigators are big faves on the mod circuit and any other circuit that likes soulful R&B. Tremendous players and they have the best British vocalist since I heard Stevie Winwood. They are playing Instant Access at the Sub Club in Glasgow on Thursday 7th April with my bad self - frank Murphy - spinning the 45's.

The Bill Bush Combo will be playing I'm waiting and other soul & R&B favourites at the Spiegeltent in George Square in Glasgow on Thursday 23rd June supported by Lennie Harkins and Martin Gavin of Caledonia Soul.
