KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week I've picked a hit, the U.S. mono mix of The Spencer Davis Group's classic "Gimme Some Lovin" from 1966...
"If there ever was a year that epitomizes "Swinging London" for me it's 1966. The World Cup, The Avengers on TV, Mod hits the high street and great records galore. There's nothing wrong with the original U.K. Fontana hit of "Gimme Some Lovin", but I prefer the U.S. mix with cowbell and backing vocals, obviously the influence of new-in-town producer Jimmy Miller. It probably didn't escape the ears of Mick Jagger either, he would eventually swag Miller away from Steve Winwood for what was to become The Rolling Stones greatest run: 1968-72." - KV
