Been a while since last podcast, this time I feature another of the unsung heroes in my opinion. Jimmy not always getting the respect and credit he deserves. One thing for sure was Jimmy had some monster records back then, some of the rarest and most expensive. When he sold up around 87/88 Keb and Rob Marriott bought many of his biggies and it kept them going for a year or two for their playlists at the time.

Compiling Jimmy’s podcast wasn’t easy as it appeared not many could remember exactly what he played at Stafford, however a playlist was produced from Rock City from around that time and with other records we knew for sure he played we have a healthy list of tracks to compile the podcast. One or two I couldn’t source sound files or find out what they were, Baby Washington "Let It Be Me” (cover up I presume) and Vince And Connie "I Bear Witness” (one off acetate) being two.
