Good evening boppers. Did you heard this song before? Maybe, but not like this.
Spanky’s Soul Spectrum
This tune was getting a lot of attention a few years ago. The crate diggers have moved on long since, no doubt now knee deep in ‘sick’ Turkish psychedelia, Eastern bloc funk ‘bangers’ or break-laden Italian prog. This delightfully-exuberant cover version of Cream’s ‘Sunshine Of Your Love’ is well worth another listen; great music remains in the heart, regardless of trends.
Spanky Wilson who was born in Philadelphia, apparently got her nickname from the beatings her father gave her as a kid! During a career which started in the 60s and continues to the present day, she has collaberated with a wide range of artists such as Lalo Shifrin, Marvin Gaye and Sammy Davis Jnr. More recently she has featured on Quantic Soul Orchestra’s Mishaps Happening (2004) and I’m Thankful (2006).
