Vintage Soul Radio Show

Just heard this lovely slice of Muscles Shoals soul on Barry Fowden's Vintage Soul Radio Show. This song certainly has "pedigree" with the Swamp Dogg of soul producing the song on one of soul's mystery men Arthur Conley who spent the last 20 years of his life away from the States in Holland.

I only met Arthur once briefly in Holland during a visit to Utrecht and I didn't really get the chance to talk to him before he died a few years back. Walking On Eggs is a typical piece of Dogg magic with his usual rhythm patterns that are his signature. Probably Pete Carr on the gorgeous choppy guitar and is that Charlie Whitehead singing backing vocals???

You can hear a whole album's worth of Arthur's recordings with Swamp Dogg on a Japanese album released on P-Vine in the 90's called One More Sweet Soul Music but surprisingly Walking On Eggs, More Sweet Soul Music and Rita which were 45's are not included!

Check out Barry's radio show and excellent web site on the Net:-
