Hi folks,

This may well be of interest to some of you. I have recently just interviewed the legendary Dennis Coffey for my soul & funk blog, Gazfunk. As you probably know, Dennis doesn't give interviews very often so we're delighted that he agreed to chat about all things Motown, Scorpio & Rodriguez.

You can check out the interview by going to http://gazfunk.wordp...-dennis-coffey/

Cheers!

Gazfunk :shades:

Awesome.

Did you ask him which studio the Rodriguez LP's were recorded at?

Nope - didn't want to get too bogged down in asking him questions about Rodriguez :thumbsup: Though I'm going to see Rodriguez tomorrow night so I might get a chance to ask him directly!! :thumbup:

Take me with you! :0)

Turns out the first LP was recorded at the legendary Tera Shirma, Detroit, by all accounts and the second in London.

Great work on both counts.

Enjoy the show!

:thumbsup:

his blog is tremendous, he certainly dosn't disguise the fact that he loved being part of/working with the funks, and on so many hits, he introduced originality, particularly the effects he acquired, including wah wah, echoplex and fuzztone. he refers in particular to cloud nine and ball of confusion...you can identify his trademark here, but they are just examples of the enormous amount of work he collaberated on. i don't possess the book..i assume the many anecdotes he is currently relating, must be in there, either way it's fascinating that he can recall so much, his mind as sharp as a knife. love the record catalogue as well, so many northernesque "hits" to his and mike theodore's credit......and a big thumbs up to the man as it's also his birthday today.....congratulations dennis, and a continued long life to you!  :thumbsup:  :hatsoff2:

Great book, as muso biographies go, I won a signed one off Big Daddy in the 90s, for whom he did a great in-depth interview.]
