American TV shows seem to be picking up some increasingly interesting music - I was sitting watching CSI with my girl this evening when a perfectly funky version of Cameo's Word Up was showcased.
A little digging turned up that the song (available for download below) is by a London soul singer called Willis - more info here.
If you are intrigued, Willis is playing the Plastic People on Curtain Road in London on April 28th.
Cover Versions are pretty special to me and, over time, they'll become a major theme of my blog. I hope you like this as a starter for 10...
