Soul Source Sessions - Request/Demand


Note listings, details, cover ups may be a bit off as most are from 1998-2001

Soul Source Old Sessions


Just dug up some of the session listings that have been up here over the years.

Still have them stashed away somewhere, so if have a need to re-hear any of them again ....all you have to do is whistle

List of them all follows, will try and keep the listings tidy but as from a wide era, it may get messy!

(note - orignals had photos etc, so may be dead links and so on)

floor  dont let the tempo out you off this is soul. 

as said great stuff, heres a few words from alan on where hes from and what hes up to:

"ive been dj-ing and running clubs since the early 80s my first dj stint being at the beat route soul a go go nite in 1980, started to collect soul as well as my first musical love reggae and ska. Dj-ed at  most london mod clubs thru that period as well as running the successful reggae and ska nites at the penny black, sols arms and dublin castle in camden.

Irish greg and i got together to put on a do where we could have a good dance and enjoy great music and the capitol soul club was born, unfortunately we lost the bar shoreditch after eight great months, we then teamed up with mr jahans our fantastic promoter to start up the cap soul at

the dome which is going from strength to strength. MY love for r&b shows in my sets but im not averse to a stomper or 2.

You can catch me dj-ing at the dome every 6 weeks and down in brighton for the soul dayer on sunday 10th december see ya there. 

best alan h.

curtis  knight-voodoo women-gulf

dont forget mr flynn is also taking to the field on 24 september brighton dayer and at a ktf event on 17 sep 00 , dome sep 29 and togetherness weekender in october


thanks also to mr flynn  for supplying the in match commentary......never guess football seasons just started

click the image to hear/stream the following sounds 

You Can Say - Gary Dean - Young

It sweeps along on a tinkling piano with added beefy brass chords, but still

manages to cram in an instrumental break and crucial key change within its

one minute fifty five seconds.

Your Future - Robert "Redtop" Young - Soulsations

This Washington disc fair crunches along, on its heavy bass line and ever

present brass stabs. It did get a few spins by Keb and Gary Spencer many

moons ago, and is worthy of more me thinks

My Proposal - Soul inc - Coconut Groove

The best record Ive heard in the last decade or so without a doubt. It

features Cecil Washington (who also penned it) and the label shares the same

address details as Prophonics! An uptempo mover with several breaks and a

key change, but the vocals really steal the show - pure magic. Yes, its

bloody rare - thats life!?

This Ones For You My Love - Benny Spellman - Alon

This is my favourite spin at present, and very reminiscent of the early 80s

over played but much loved "Fortune Teller". This track rattles along and

features many fine piano breaks from New Orleans hero Allen Toussaint. It

took me many years to track down a copy (actually bought it for the other

side, which is also great Northern!), but I have no doubt that more copies

will eventually surface. When this happens the record could become a monster

tune across the land.

Just Cant Let It Ride - Dexter Manley - cover up

Ady Croasdell gave this one six months of 100 Club turntable action a few

years back, before it "disappeared" into my collection! Its the same song

as John DAndrea on MGM, but "Dexters" version is more menacing, with its

good strong brass work and organ breathing away. I must start playing this

at the Dome....remind me someone!

The Greatest Story Ever Told - Billy Arnell - cover up

A real grower that may take a couple of plays before it grabs you, put give

it a chance! Some have said that its the best thing theyve heard in years,

with its nagging beat, "tree chopping" guitar and swirling organ. Never

seen another copy apart from my one.


6 Throbbing tracks courtesy of the hitman

heres a full strength brew from the hitman with a selection of classy

movers, just hit the stream to hear

theres a new thing-dean and damons cover

getting things off to a flying start - uptempo time

get off my back - marvin l sims -revue

from a flyer to a gritty mover, with a plea from the porch

black is beautifull - trinikas

keeping the pace, the trinikas with a great piece of uptempo anthem

i need a man - precious three

time for a change nah.. more in the same vein, as the precious three tell us what they want

little john-just wait and see-gogate

once covered as jimmy raye at stafford, more grit in a stop start fly style

use it before you lose it- bobby valentin fania

another stafford sound with a soul meets latin thumper to end the show

Irish Greg from Dec 99

dont let it down-duke baxter- cover up

another of irish gregs current floor fillers - tremendous throbbing sound, one to die for


baby yes i do - temptones- unissued arctic

really big for irish greg and david flynn - rather hear overplayed oldies again and again or stuff like this

cracking first rate uptempo soul side ?


baby i love you - tyn times-music box

massive sound for carl fortnum and irish greg, lead singer of this group is another who can be found online


nobody but me-other brothers-modern- unissued

another powerhouse track


heartbreaking truth-carol anderson-cover up

incredible irish gregs newest spin enjoyed above ? check out next cap soul event


Pete C Soul session  



Pete Coulson DJ and mag editor from up there in the northwest  is this issues featured player, hitting us with a session featuring 6 of hottest r+b tracks around, plus notes and a brief bio on where hes coming from and wheres he going. Also responsible for fanzine "northern essence". All I say is

 What a way to start the new year!


Hit {here} to stream the first session, 

1) joe tex - i wanna be free - dial got this courtesy of steve thomson, blew me away first time of hearing, i played it for shifty at lowton and he tells me he has now got one, typical joe tex with plenty of breaks and changes, i am always getting asked for this, a great dancer.

2) contract on love - stevie wonder - tamla i have been after a copy of this for about two years but nobody would sell me one, i eventually settled for the album which i bought of bob hinsley, about a month later i was found a copy by simon, so if anyone wants stevie wonders greatest hits i have one for sale.

3) lois blain - here i am - open-g-records this great dancer chugs along with the breaks coming via the catch in loiss voice, out of new york just wonderful soul music.

4) richard berry - have love will travel - flip i am getting lots of requests for this top dancer, out of California i suppose it could be classed as doo wop if you wanted to pigeon hole it, got this of carl willingham when he acquired the demo, he wont have an issue in the house if he can get the demo, and the bugger has most things on demo, mostly white of course.

5) carol fran - knock knock - excello i first heard this about six months ago on a tape and had to have one, trouble was nobody had heard of it. i mentioned it to ian cunliffe and lo and behold he turned on up within a couple of months, we are not worthy ian, brilliant r&b with a distinctive start.

6) barbara lynn - second fiddle girl - jamie this was an unknown barbara lynn track to me, my good mate hoss played this to me at my house after a niter and it blew me away. always one of my favourite artists due to the diversity of her music. i had the privilege of meeting her and interviewing her for my magazine northern essence (plug) at last years cala gran and the lady is just that, one of the nicest most unassuming people i have ever met.

about me i started on the northern soul scene about 1968 when i first went to the twisted wheel in manchester, i was a regular there until it finished and then went to the blackpool mecca until i was married and then all things have to change. i was off the scene then until about seven years ago, now with my second wife viv we found that the scene was thriving more than when i left it. after our fist soul night we were hooked and have not looked back since, i think we have made up for those lost years a hundred times over since we started back, in fact it has virtualy taken over our lives. i have been involved in most aspects of the scene, as a promoter, dj and editor of my own fanzine northern essence, the mag has been great for me, i have met so many of the artists i have admired over the years, , to name a few, barbara lynn, eddie holman, jerry williams, terry callier and dean courtney and they have all been such nice people,just like most people on the scene. the great thing about the scene IS the people, we have made so many real friends from all over the country and making new ones every week, yes the music is important but if you are progressive thinking and you go out every weekend then you are going to have a lot of dissapointing nights if you do not put the company you are with first, then if you get a good night s music as well its a bonus. if you like the tunes mike has put on his site you can hear them and more like them every month at lowton civic hall where i am resident in the r&b room along with regulars carl willingham, roger banks and malc worsley plus guests. the next one is friday 8th december, by the way i will also be djing in the main room that night, my next few dates this month are at the savoy hotel in blackpool on saturday december 22nd, bolton anglers club on boxing night, the white hart in farnworth december 27th and again at lowton on new years eve.



ok thats that, know cynics will say recycling but as always reply is **** em,  just looking at dates and the notes and of course the sounds, and what Isee  make it worthwhile to me, so if wanna hear any of them again just let us know which and will dig deep.
