Nneka and her song titled Africans

Everything about this song is excellent. The groove, the passion, the truth inside the artists soul and her ability to let it all out. The music is part soul, part reggae, deeply African and could cross into pop and jazz.

Nneka, though not yet widely known in the U.S., has a broad fan base internationally. It seems too likely that she shall eventually cross the atlantic for the U.S. - So looking forward to that time. GC

Nina Simone - My Baby Just Cares For Me

Posted by Greg Chamberlain for MUSIC TELEVISION

This song was originally written in 1928 by Gus Kahn and Walter Donaldson for the musical film Whoopee! by Thornton Freeland, with Eddie Cantor and was released in the US in 1930. The song at that time was performed and danced by Ethel Shutta.

In the 1950's. it became part of Frank Sinatra;s repertoire. Finally, in 1959 the song had been included in first Nina's recording session because a "bright" up-tempo number was needed to finish her album.

Thirty years later, in 1987, "My Baby Just Cares for Me" was adopted as the theme for a British television advert for Chanel No 5 perfume, and reached the #5 position on the British music/pop charts.

We are still trying to figure out the origin of this video. If anyone knows, please drop a comment on the board.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird

This Lynyrd Skynyrd performance of Free Bird was shot on the BBC show Old Grey Whistle Test which that lasted from 1971 through 1987 on BBC. OGWT, as it was also known, was an influential Music Television program for it's time. The studio was only 32x22 feet which left little room for a set once the cameras and band were in.

This particular recording of Free Bird was filmed and aired in 1975.
