Its Not What You Know

Playing the Bob and Gene 45 from vinyl finally!!! Nice to have the full 2 hours back for Galactic Fractures. I really packed in the songs on this show, not much talking. Be sure to check out the two versions of “Same Thing It Took”. I was actually more aware of the rare gospel 45, cause of its recent rerelease on Numero Group. The Impressions do a nice secular version though. I recently got hipped to that fantastic Nina Simone track I had been ignoring for far too long, so don’t miss that one either!
