Sweet Spot (Wednesday 26th February 2020)
I bussed in to Wootton Bassett this morning to visit the market and get a couple of things done. I'm getting more proficient at using the buses but I had intended to visit Templars Firs using the shortest walk that I had determined last week, but I came across the stop at New Road much sooner than expected and missed it. The next stop was a lot further on so I deferred that visit for another day and returned to Calne.
The picnic I'd bought to have at the canal I instead had on a bench beside the River Marden, below Fay's Bistro. I had this swan for company, who had found the sunniest spot for some important preening.

The Miracles - The Tracks Of My Tears (completed 19 May 1965, Hitsville Studios, Detroit MI)
I've now played all of the Motown Chartbusters Vols. 1-3 that I picked up on my recent trip to London, listening to the final volume today. It was great to be reminded of so many classic hits, including this one on Vol. 3. The Tracks Of My Tears was first released in June 1965 but despite being a hit in the US, the British single flopped first time around, only becoming a hit in 1969 when re-released. It was also
included on the 1965 album Going To A Go-Go in the same version as the single, fading out around 2.55, when all the time the brilliant full length version lasting nearly four minutes languished in the vaults, finally appearing in 2005, and that is the version I have posted here.
