  1. Very nice, thanks Mr Soul. 'I know'and 'Googa mooga' were my intro to Freddie on a 45, way back in the day.
    Did you know that 'Googa mooga' wasn't written by Roach but by Lou Bennett who recorded it on a Dawn 45 in 1957?


  2. Excellent, and with K. Burrell too ! Thank you very much for sharing :)
