Kicking off with the frst DOTM for June 2020 is a real curiosity. I was assembling potential tracks from a variety of sources and wondering which one to go with first when I got a message from Julian Gibbs via my contact form that said:
Hello Keith. I have your single “Brighter Day” but am obliged to admit that I infinitely prefer the version which you recorded for a Radio 1 session in the mid 70s. I’m also obliged to admit that I home taped this but, of course, the tape is more or less unusable after all this time.
Do you happen to know if there’s any way I can get hold of this version?
Well what an amazing coincidence that is as I haven’t played that track for about 20 years and had only added it to the list the week before – I hope you like it as much as you remember, Julian and thank you for the request!
