Tate Liverpool has released a video of Greg Wilson in conversation with one of the UK’s greatest musical heroes: Les Spaine. Plain was a key figure in British black music before leaving to take up a position at Detroit’s Motown Records.
Greg Wilson credits Spaine as one of his biggest influences, and the conversation explores the little told story of the development of the thriving black music scene in Liverpool and the UK in general.
Watch the conversation in full here – it is an education to say the least. Two of the UK’s most important musical figures talking shop. Amazing.
