LO'S PICK OF THE DAY - "Then You Smile At Me" by Bill Withers

  Originally featured on Inside MusiCast Last week, legendary drummer  Alvin Taylor  was honored by the City of Palm Springs, California and the Palm Springs Walk of Stars with a star in his name for his contributions to music. There may be some who aren't familiar with Alvin's name but definitely are familiar with the tunes he played on. Back in the early 60's when Little Richard and a young Billy Preston were visiting the desert, Little Richard heard the young teenage Alvin play in Palm Springs and his response was "Oh, my God, honey, when I saw you playing the drums, my big toe shot straight up in my boot! Oooh, I wanted to scream like a white lady!' He continued with "Honey, I ain't heard a drummer like you since I left Macon, Georgia." Alvin went on to tour with Little Richard, as well as tour & record with Billy Preston, Eric Burdon & Animals, Pacific, Gas & Electric, Barry White, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Welch, George Harrison, Leo Sayer,
