River Marden (Tuesday 11th September 2018)
I took an evening stroll in misted rain down to Berhill's Farm and found this yellow ragwort by Keevil's Weir - my Tiny Tuesday offering.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
The Anglos - Incense (1965)
I try to put new discoveries or topical items on here rather than personal old favourites and this is a case in point as, although I remember it from the sixties, I have never owned it in any form until today, when I found it on a new compilation, Jon Savage's 1965 - The Year The Sixties Ignited, with fulsome and interesting notes by the author.
The Anglos were an American band cashing in on the British invasion, indeed it was first released here on the Brit label, but because it was co-produced by Jimmy Miller and appeared here on an Island subsiduary label (and later on Island itself) it was widely thought for years to be by a British band, probably led by the Island artist Stevie Winwood, who later worked with Jimmy Miller.
In fact the singer was a Detroit-based singer called Joe Webster, with only a mild vocal similarity to Stevie Winwood, and the record was made in Newark NJ. When first released there on Orbit it was credited to Joe Webster and the Anglos. Although not a hit here it was a Radio London hit and a club favourite, regularly turning up on Northern Soul and other dance club compilations.
