All About My Girl: the book; starts life as a short article I write for a South Coast based Mod/Scooter fanzine called ‘Enjoy Yourself’ complied by a very good friend of mine; Paul Bedford. ‘Just write about a tune you like or something’ is my very limited brief. It just so happens that I am on a very big Mod-Jazz trip at this time and doubly so where the Hammond-organ was concerned.
I select ‘All About My Girl’ by Jimmy McGriff although it could easily be ‘I Got a Woman’, ‘Discotheque’ or any of the other immaculate Sue releases from the original Modernist period. The article writes itself very quickly and I am extremely enamoured with the feelof the piece. It goes on to generate much good feedback in its admittedly limited circulation.
