  1. I love Lowell Fulson, but the Otis Redding/Carla Thomas version of Tramp must be recognized!

  4. Much to my own amazement I do actually know that third one. Its on one of the playlists where I work. I feel pretty good about that.

  5. Tramp is a rubbish song. I mean.. "I'm just a tramp & a lover too.. mama was & papa too.." Lyrically it's not good. Is he just realising that his parents had to have sex to procreate? It's not even 'bubblegum' style. He has a great voice though. The bluesy guitar is superb - It should be an instrumental with him humming it.
    Newcastle has rubbish records + record shops.
