The B side

‘Essentially, this went on to color my whole life, I think… I mean, I always wanted to be different or something – always lived on the B side of life somehow.

If it was popular and glamorous (read: A side), I wanted no part of it.’

I am far from being the first to celebrate the humble flipside in the blogosphere.  Over at the B side, Red Kelly has been steadily building impressive, in-depth commentary on r’n’b, funk and soul flips since September 2005.  It’s reasonably safe to say that we’re unlikey to cover the same sounds, although I’m pleased to note one point of cross-over in the form of Dusty Springfield.

Feast your eyes on his artist index sidebar – the Meters!  Irma Thomas!  O.V. Wright! – and remember that beneath each link lies an mp3 (we’re still working on this here at Backed with).
