Oldest Photographic Evidence Of Being A Uk Soul Fan?

Posted

This is me (the little one) and a mate perusing my Ray Charles albums sometime in'63. Note my 'Dynatron' record player in the background. Anyone got older 'soul' photos or even anything up to '66 ish?

Not sure, but I think this might be Brian Walker at Brazennose St. Wheel

Thanks for all the interest and comments. No. my mate was no politician! i lived in a small village outside Wrexham and hardly ever got to hear anything 'soulful'. I can honestly say I never bought a 45 by a UK artist. I mainly relied on buying blind from recommendations and 'odd' non UK sounding names e.g.Solomon Burke, Isley Brothers etc, Disc magazine where Jack Good had a column written from the states and Record Mirror who had Norman Joplin in particular writing for them and it was well into R&B and the 'new' sound,soul. By the time this pic was taken, I had bought James Brown, Solomkon Burke, Bobby Parker, The Isleys, The Miracles, Contours & Marvin Gaye on Oriole. Ther Miracles were voted best female group that year in RM! And unbelievably now as I look back I had sent for 2 albums from the States (I'd sent for a list from and Ad in RM), John Lee Hooker and something else from Crown records in L.A. (I was disappointed as they were very early stuff), how I got the dollars and knew how to send it I'll never know and can't remember! Gradually I got to know other guys who were interested in Soul and the Twisted Wheel eventually emerged where a lot of guys from Wrexham went to.

All the best, Slim
