Heaven in the Afternoon

Let's just say that it's hot here in Seattle. So hot it's hard to think straight. Today we went over the century mark which is very unusual for this city. The worst part is that there isn't any AC in any of the buildings because generally there isn't a need for it. Therefore I'm going to keep this post short and sweet so that I can go back to figuring out how to cool my apartment down. Here is the recently re-issued 1978 Lew Kirton single "Heaven in the Afternoon". This song has a bit of a Northern Soul feel to it however crossing over nicely to the disco dancefloor. This is one of those tracks that continue to grow on me with each and every listen. If you can't hunt down the original on T.K. Disco, I highly recommend purchasing the re-issue on Soul Spectrum. Now back to sticking my head in the freezer.

Here's a tip on keeping cool, straight from the deep south. Place some ice (frozen water) directly in front of a fan. You'll be surprised how much it works. That way you can keep your head out of the oven, um, I mean..the freezer. Stay Cool

Mmm... a bit on the cheesy side for me

This was a big tune on the Modern Suol Circuit that followed on the heals of the northern soul scene.
