Groovement Podcast // Darren Laws: These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things {2009, re-up}

Thanks to Facebook’s Timehop, this selections has come back around today. It’s so good that I’m re-upping it.

Back in 2009 I was sorting out bar sessions for the soon-to-be closed Fat City Records. Darren was upping sticks and moving to Newcastle, so we decided to record his final Fat City pub session – bearing in mind he’d already been selling off most of his record collection, these are the jewels that were left. It’s a Sunday afternoon, pint in hand, amazing journey through soul.

Thanks again to Darren for a really inspirational selection!
