Nuggets 341 – Baby Baby II

Here is part two of my baby infused mixes. If I had to choose a favourite track, it would be Baby I Need Your Loving -- a wonderful wall of sound track that has been remastered in stereo with the Supremes instead of Levi Stubbs and the rest of the Four Tops. I wager that the Wrecking Crew were involved.

What’s your pick?

For those who are curious about the picture above, you can read more about Donnie and Joe or watch this doco.

Finally, I have included a song from the fabulous Pizzicato Five. The video isn’t the tune from this playlist, but it’s pretty fab.

Nuggets 342 – Baby Baby

Strange title, long story.

I was sorting through my Itunes music collection the other day (yes, it was raining outside) when I noticed how many songs had the word “baby” in the title; there were about 600 tracks. Great I thought, lets make some playlists. I sorted them into more contemplative tunes, psych 70’s numbers, thrashier tunes and so on.

It has been interesting checking out tunes familiar and unknown, a deep dive into what I have saved over the years.

Here is the first playlist which contains mildly thrashy numbers. All fab of course. If I had to pick a favourite, it would be “Why Not Your Baby” by Gene Clark / Doug Dillard.

Happy New Year.
