Don Draper and the Spencer Davis Group
One of my favourite memories of New York is drinking in a bar high in a skyscraper just off Madison Avenue. It was just like being in Mad Men.
Talking of which, I hear that Don Draper enters the news series to the sound of the Spencer Davis Group.
It was this track that started me off on my enthusiasm for Steve Winwood. A coffee shop in Harborough used to play a 1960s compliation CD and I'm a Man was one of the tracks on it. I had always known the song, but this was the first time I had really listened to it.
