:hatsoff2: Hi All Danny Baker (Millwall Jes) when he first did Radio 5live, he presented it with another geezer also a Londoner Danny ??? I cant remember his surname, He had a large Rare SKA REGGAE, it seems incongruent, but I have let his secret out, READ ALL ABOUT IT! I wonder if he wore Ox Blood Dr Martins 12 hole, Still cant think of his name, Tip off my tongue stuff. and the main man ELTON JOHN's famous collection, fabulous stuff :D DAVE KIL

Bumped into Danny Baker a few times in a record shop in Lewisham. He lives in Blackheath. He was looking for ska and reggae.He told me his dad used to work at the docks and was always bringing records home......he used to use some of them as frisbees.Robert Elms BBC London is a big soul and jazz fan but more on the funk side.

Had to laugh at one of the comments: The keyboardist on the left looks like a wedding DJ or someone who's just showing the keyboard for demonstration purposes only. &

Shifty sold a record to Burt Bacharach a couple of years ago. Old Burt phoned him up to order it too...how cool is that! Chris

On the footee theme - Les Ferdinand is a big collector. When Chris Waddle moved to Spurs he said there wasn't any Northern Soul in London!

Mark C

Les used to buy his music from Time Is Right (Goldhawk Rd branch) when he was playing for QPR.

Martin Freeman collects 6ts/7ts soul.

I've not seen Steve Davis for sometime but I did some trades with him 20 years ago when he had a place near Gallows Corner.

He had a good record collection and impressive electrostatic speakers to hear them on. He used to venture out to soul do's a bit back then, last time I saw him was at Essence where we had a good catch up. I remember the look on my brother's face when I got home and Steve had left a message on the family answer machine mentioning record titles just after I first met him in a second hand record store in Romford.

Corinne Drewery from Swing Out Sister was an avid soul fan.

She still is Simsy and DJ'd for us a few years back - saw her at the Blackpool weekender the following year after that as well.

Chris,

Shifty should have said "Sorry but I have a higher offer from someone called Hal David".

When Elton John auctioned his collection for the Terence Higgins Foundation, he had a run of every UK Chess release from about 65-67 with Reg Dwight neatly written in the right rectangle on the corner of the sleeve of every one
