Yes the mags were great I just hope the book isn"t several of the features re-printed in book form. :g:

Cheers Paul

The Book is a totally different project Paul. There are obviously a few people that were featured in the mag issues (The Harthon guys for instance), but the info is updated and expanded in those one or two cases.

Regards,

Dave

Looks to be a great book. One I'll definitely be buying. Will there be further books about other cities with a rich soul music heritage?

Hi Frankie,

Not from me. Not unless I start doing 28 hour days! 6 years on one project is WAY TOO LONG! ;-)

Regards,

Dave
