From the dynamite video collection of YouTube’s 45 king, spoonfedcornbread, here’s another record I owned when I was a kid.
“Love Land” debuted on Billboard’s R&B chart on March 7, 1970, climbing only to No. 23. It actually did better on the Top 40, reaching No. 16.
The next single for Charles Wright and the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band would be “Express Yourself,” their smash hit. But something about the smoother groove of “Love Land” really captures the flavor of 1970 for me.
To spoonfedcornbread, my man... keep doing what you do!
Dammit. Dee-double-dammit. I sure hope my calling attention to him didn’t lead to his downfall. I didn’t even know this was illegal. He was just an oldies deejay to me... playing cool records and getting people excited about music... bringing back sweet memories...
Shit. I don’t even have a way to contact him and find out what the deal is. We communicated through YouTube messages. Wow. I couldn’t wait to embed 45s like “I’m Doin’ Fine Now” and “Remember Me.”
