Couldn't pick one particular tune from Keb,but I allways loved his style of Dj'ing, full of passion ( sadly missing nower days IMHO ) especially at Stafford alongside Guy Hennigan . You definately knew where you stood with him 'A spade was a spade' so to speak & he told it as it was.

Classic quote from Stafford I'll never forget .... "Listen to this ... Fuxxing Shit Hot .. Now get get of your arses you lazy fxxxers" Brilliant !!

Didn't Richard Searling play these at the bum end of the Casino ? :chinstroke:

Some of them, but I guess question was what 45s do you associate with Keb.

Bit surprised Hambric [both sides]gets a mention as if it's Drum 45 this was massive for Richard at Casino. CODs and Topics were Richard's 45s but I bought them off him as he was getting out of 60's really and hadn't played them much. Similarly Royal Robins which I think was off him but maybe Anderson. Can't remember now.

Jackie Day was from US and I cut acetate for Guy. Limelights was a Dave Raistrick discovery Dave and I played at Stafford.

Apart from Hambric we used to play all these at Stafford amongst others but I suppose it all gets mixed up in the memory.

Freddie Houston is a fantastic record.........Herb Ward "I Wouldn't Have Gone" was the c/u title wasn't it?

I'm only really familiar with Keb's contribution to (and creating of) the deep funk scene, but this clip always brings a smile to my face. A living legend who'll live long after other living legends have died... thumbsup.gif

Oscar Perry-Face Reality-Feron

I tend to remember his storming tunes like this one, but he also had an ear for some of the slower stuff, and despite it rarely being played anywhere, probably because its a cheapie, but

June Conquest - Almost Persuaded, (Laura Green c/u) always makes me think of Keb.

Am I right or is my mind playing tricks?

Another fast one I cant see mentioned

The Miller Sisters - Your Love (is guaranteed). He uncovered it at an alldayer in Tamworth, after a Stafford niter, and sold it to me for £6.
