yho29 - it will never be over

The twenty-ninth edition of YHO has on its cover a still of the wonderful Barry St. John performing her version of Cry Like A Baby on Beat Club back in 1969.  The title is borrowed from the Timi Yuro song of around the same time.  And there is a very strong theme throughout this issue of British soul productions and pop experimentation from the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.  The starting point really was finding a track on YouTube of Joe E. Young & the Toniks on the Toast label and setting off on a voyage of discovery which wonderfully connected in with all sorts of wonderful things.
Among those mentioned in this edition of YHO are:
Ø  Vicki Wickham and the Toast label
Ø  Tony Hall and the Fresh Air label
Ø  Ian Green
Ø  Roseta Hightower
Ø  Labi Siffre
Ø  Blue Mink
Ø  Fox
Ø  Mike Cooper
Ø  Doris Troy
Ø  Brotherhood of Man
Ø  Gerry Shury
Ø  Lee Vanderbilt
Ø  The Foundations
