Surely the definition of low rider music is as oblique as the definition of Northern Soul music?

To complicate the issue more...............Stepping out of the picture is considered a 'classic' by both genres!

So much so that the demand for this tune is 'doubled up' because both sets of collectors want it!

Then, to complicate matters even more some records have one side in demand by the Low Rider scene, with the flip in demand by the Northern Soul scene.

Example

Track Artist Title Composer Producer  
A The Heartbreakers [Derby City] How Do You Say Goodbye Eddie Haynes, Elzy White Elzy White Jr LR
B The Heartbreakers [Derby City] I've Got To Face It Elzy White Jr Elzy White Jr NS

As always it has to be down to your own perception of genre

Hi Ed, good point and example used with The Heartbreakers, "How do you say goodbye" a good choice for this thread, there are many, many examples of records collected by 2 different sets  for their alternative sides, however, I can't agree with the Johnny Maestro record you posted, yes, it,s hard to pigeon hole the exact description of "Low Rider" but in the main like The Heartbreakers example "Sweet Soul" and "Group Harmony" records where the tempo is slower, even ballads, anyway, that's my opinion for what its worth Ed, Sigs has just posted a great example by Inner Souls, stuff along them kinda lines, good discussion though

Regards

Kev

I wonder if the Low Riders ponder our existence? Imagine telling them about the Jim Wray Lounge at Yarmouth!

The folk on that scene, that I've encountered, people such as Tommy Siqueiro, Arlene Soulera 5150, Ruben Molina, Ian Pellegrin, Steven Soulero etc. are all very much aware of our 'UK' scene. These are

I guested at the last Southern Soulspinners event, in West Covina.....those cats really know their stuff, and it was a joy to get to spin my own batch of obscurities to such a great response! &

Played this on Saturday, story to it, less than a minute in, there,s a sort of mis- edit, reason being, Calvin died in a highway smash while they were in the process of making this, Aquarius wanted to put it out so that was the final result, sad story really, but adds to the thing

Think those who have contributed to this thread, in particular, might be interested in what we have on offer at the next Diggin Deep.

Easter Saturday 'Diggin Deep 3' features the Boro' Boys - Mike Lofthouse, Adam Garbutt and Tommo.

Three serious Soul Music Men from the North East, coming to bring us all some Soul!

Alongside myself and Kev Briscoe, of course!

The July event 'Diggin' Deep 4' is our Summer Sizzler and suffice to say promises to be absolutely incredible.

I'll leave it to the flyer to fill you in on the Guest List and detail.

Cheers,

:thumbsup:

Got a copy of this signed by the author in 2004 at the LA gig.

I love the way it's set out with a matter of fact description of artists and records.

The Heartbreakers track was discussed at length.

Just giving my Soul friends the heads up that a project I've been working on with Ruben Molina Arlene Sepulveda Josh Whittemore and Ady Croasdell for the past couple of years finally got a release date. A compilation of stunning Lowrider Soul from the playboxes of the leading DJ's in the genre + a couple of fabulous, previously unreleased, scorchers from The Lovers and Melvin Hicks.

Check out the link and order direct from Ace / Kent for just £11.50. - Not a lot of money for a whole lot of soul, I'm sure you'll agree.

Sir Shambling's website has an interesting article on Latin Soul that mentions the Low Rider scene. The author knew his stuff.  It includes some fabulous music links. 

http://www.sirshambling.com/articles/latin_soul/index.php

Chicano's loved a ballad. Here is a genuine Chicano cut (as opposed to a record played on the scene by an R&B artist)
