At last they’ve reissued OV Wright’s classic Memphis soul album A Nickel And A Nail And The Ace Of Spades – I’ve been looking for this for a while, with gems such as Don’t Let My Baby Ride, Eight Women And Four Men, the great title track, and my favourite, misogynistic though it may be, He Made Woman For Man.

About Rob

Rob co-founded BCB with Mary Dowson, back when the hills were young and it were all flat caps an chappatis round 'ere. It was known as Bradford Festival Radio then, and thanks to the generosity of Dusty Rhodes we got started. Now he takes photos, puts little silver discs in drawers, mumbles into microphones, and walks on the hills. Keep On Blowin..
