Sam's still the man

It was a surprise to hear Sam Moore being interviewed this morning on Radio 4's Today Programme of all places. He's released a new CD called Overnight Sensational with numerous guest stars, but clearly still hasn't got over the drug fuelled ill feeling that led to the break up of Sam and Dave. He's pissed off too about the lack of recognition resulting from the Blues Brothers' revival of Soul Man and as for today's black music he says it all sounds the same. Where are the distinctive voices of the past like Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke, Little Willie John, Otis Redding, Ray Charles and Sam and Dave he asks. Where indeed?

I've just been listening to James Hunter's "People Gonna Talk". There's someone who is keeping that sound alive. And he's English!
