The Vocal Version Of The Original Instrumental
Way back at the beginning of November I had to rush out an emergency prescription for a severe dose of Christopher Crossitis which was then afflicting The Ghost Of Electricity. I thought that the best course of medication would be an hourly dose of a particularly classy RicTic instrumental by Al Kent.
Since then I have discovered, sought out and purchased a vocal version of said record. Recorded by Gloria Taylor in Nashville and released on the Silver Fox label, which incidentally was owned by Lelan Rogers, brother of country star Kenny. I'm not sure if the vocal adds that much to the track, Ms Taylor certainly has a good voice, maybe it's just the fact that I knew the instrumental version first.
