Top 5 Songs To Get Me Thru The Week – Monday

The week begins and I need a little something to get me through. Something a little soulful and uplifting, and for that I turn to Terry Callier and his brilliant track Ordinary Joe.

Terry Callier is a hard to categorise artist, whose first album back in the 1960s was a mix of folk and jazz and blues. He continued doing his unique thing with that wonderful voice and his soulful song writing until retiring in the early 1980’s. He needed to look after his daughter and the music business was too unreliable for income. So he took up computer engineering. It was not until the late 1990’s that his music was rediscovered and Terry himself made a comeback. I highly recommend him.
