Brilliant stuff Greg, with this lot and Bobs show, gonna keep me busy for a while

 

Kev

Just listened to the DJ Soulera 5150 show, one word, AWESOME, only knew a handful of the tracks, and to be honest, the standard was that good right through I can't pick out fave's, what a way to end the show though, General Lee.

Sweet soul has been the soundtrack of the chicano cultura for years! there was a lot chicano groups from texas and ca putting out records with that soulful sound we like..thee midnighters,little joe and the latinaires,sunny and the sunliners,royal chessmen to name a few..of course the raza continued to dig deeper and flooded the barrios with the sweet soul sound like the east side stories..Frankie Karl,The Escorts,Van Mcoy..there's always been chicano collectors but they kept a low profile..now days with internet,ebay,soul source etc youre starting to see a lot of "souleros" as we say emerge..also these records with that soulero sound are easier to reach now thanks to the internet..theres so many unknown gems in the hands of these collectors who still do not do the internet thing and expose all their heat!

Lot of guys over here collect that kind of stuff Reuben, only thing is, we have nowhere to go. I know through Greg that over there you have The Northern Souleros and Souleras and the Southern Souleros and Souleras. The Southern Soul Spinners Greg tells me play regular venues (or a certain venue) where sweet soul is played. Oh how I wish something similar could happen over here. Have always thought that if you collect this music it is a bottomless pit to explore, no one will ever have or will have heard everything

I have always been intrigued by the images on the CD covers & else where, why are the women depicted as half skeletal with sunken eyes & sewn up its...not sure how this fits in with the music & what significance it has, I may not have explained this very well, but if anyone can understand what I'm on about would love to know what its all about & even the history......anyone ???

i myself can thank the lowriders on the west coast for reawakening my then flagging interest,about 5 years ago i started trawling you tube to see if there was much in the way of soul music posted up, apart from a few uk posters i kept coming across these strange posts from california of what seemed like the slower flips to our northen standards, sweet soul sounds or just plain ballads, all these posts came complete with aztec/chicano/lowrider iconography. i really started to enjoy listening to these posts and it wasnt long before id joined in making comments and rating their sounds etc,and getting in contact with the posters,the language they used to describe their posts also caught my eye, rola or rolita for record or song,firme (pronounced feer-may) basically shit hot, soulero (male collector) and soulera (female), next thing i know im sourcing records for soulera 5150 (arlene), if youve been wondering why records like the webs, give in has gone from £10 to £60 over the last couple of years you have these guys to thank, the flip its so hard to break a habit, which is a monster over there and everyone wants to own it, like the previous posters have said these fellas know a helluva lot about soul music, i had the pleasure of also going to the west covina do in la in march 2011, i stayed with arlene and her family and was made most welcome, met up with all the southern soul spinners crew and was more than impressed, im still in regular contact and it wont be long before im back there again, ill also be hooking up with the san jo northern souleros at one of their souleros balls for sure,my shady side of town tee shirt is still my pride n joy, courtesy of sleeps ( ruben v )

The NORTHERN SOULEROS have nothing to do with souleros ball two totally different groups . I don't know why everyone thinks that we the NORTHERN SOULEROS are part of them.

You know me Kev, generally appreciate deep, ballad and below the Mason Dixon line stuff. Like many sub-genres there's good, not so good and downright awful to one's individual tastes. Don't generally go for sickly sweet but a good down tempo side with good impassioned vocals always gets my ear. Nowt wrong with uptempo stuff, we've all liked it and still do if it's good whether old or new however it's the slower sides that I and many others missed out on during our "Northern" days that really do it for me nowadays.

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

Jim Wray introduced me to this stuff when he copied me a few USA boot CDs and I loved the tunes they call Souleros Oldies and we know as sweet soul/ beat ballads/ crossover and I now but a lot of slow tunes/ tunes for the slower side as well as going back through the collection and checking the previously ignored slow side. the scene goes back to the 50s where they always enjoyed the slower doo wop type tunes and it continued on. There was a good article in Wax Poetics journal a few years back

http://www.waxpoetics.com/wax-poetics-magazine/issue-49

Jim Wray still missed. When is the next Yarmouth? I want to go to the Jim Wray room
