I'm with you there!
even 2 of my children (17 and 21) asked if I liked it and did we need to continue listening!
I felt I should listen to the whole song before passing judgement.
Judgement was that I didn't need to listen again.

Better, I guess I first became aware of this type of music which I think of as Reggie in about "67 when I went to a dance in Brum but even in my teens never became a fan. About that time a couple of lads at school, Billy Ronan ( (trombone )and Dean Price (clarinet ) started playing Trad Jazz and I was hooked,

Gipsy Woman I think was written by Curtis Mayfield. Check out The Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions version. Not really to much difference except the rock steady beat, I prefer this version though. Probably from the same time frame 1967.

It was indeed a Curtis Mayfield cover. I used to get these singles for nothing from the record company as it was based around the corner from where I was brought up in London. Will post a few more but definitely NO trad jazz! Now that leaves me cold!

Nope. Can't quite see what Alanis Morissette has got to do with early reggae.

Correct, she has nothing to do with early reggae. In fact the track I posted is about the only one of her's that I like.

:).
That's OK. If we all liked the same there would be no variety, therefore nothing to explore.
Agree with you Rob. It doesn't mean that the music is not appreciated.....just not enjoyed as much as something that "grabs" you!
