Nice Greg. My shows are worth a listen I think as I often feature some souleros-type stuff:

https://www.mixcloud.com/StephenT/stephen-ts-sunday-soul-soup-show-15th-june-2014-1970s-slowies-1960s-dancers/

but I can't go as rare as Greg and his friends mind you

Looks a cracking show Stephen, just played the first 3 tunes, all awesome, will play rest of show at weekend, there are literally thousands of great Sweet Soul records as cheap as a pie and a pint, doesn't have to be rare, like this

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

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! &

The Village Choir - Talk To Me Sometimes is a great record that can be picked cheaply.

the Hollywood Saxons is an amazing track IMO. I have only got one other release on the same Action-PAC label though if my memory serves me right and that's The Professionals " My heart belongs to you"  which is right up the same street. The slower side of Northern Soul that most didn't want to know about back in the eighties!

Loving this thread. This is pretty much the only music I'm buying these days, sweet headphone bangers.

Alias Funk and Soul - The Bells

Soul Explusion - Love is the Answer

Little Gregory and the Concepts - Look and You'll See

I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but I'm really struggling with some of this stuff, I KNOW that it is quality, because I know & respect the peoples taste in Soul Music who champion it & yes, there are odd things I really like, but generally, for me its too down tempo & sickly sweet, I am gonna stick with it though & do my utmost to give it a chance, I just wanted to mention my personal opinion...I do find the whole Lowrider scene with regards to this music intriguing though,  to say the least......

I know what you mean Russ, sometimes the sickly falsetto ones are too sweet for me, but sometimes they have an atmosphere and sincerity as well as unbelievable vocals that just stops you dead in your tracks. the 3 songs I posted are very rare originals with killer funk flips.

Bloody hell that's awesome! Is there an original of that Kev or did it only ever come out on a reissue LP. Would that mean that it was never originally issued?

Doesn't seem as if the dance floor obscures great soul music over there so you might get to hear such as this.

 

For me, just prop me up at the bar, keeping feeding me pints and keep playing stuff like this ... that'll do fer me

 

Same as the Linda Jones Turbo LP track

Immense, not too far removed from Linda either Dave, have seen footage of the Southern Soul Spinners nights in California, the dance floor is rammed, but they dance with their ladies, its very impressive, posted the other side to this, Ronnie McNeir in 1970, his self confessed 2nd recording

I can listen to The Manhattans' superb "One Life To Live" (Deluxe) at any time day or night, for me just a gorgeous record.

This Jordi, is probably a good example of what you are saying, the blend is here, the falsetto, atmosphere, sincerity, but with great harmonies and diverse vocals, I personally love this to bits

Third Flight-Love, love, love

Ditto your comment for One Life To Live.  Another I play a lot at home is the Inclinations on Janus.

I think it's pretty much clear we all recognise and like soulful music regardless of tempo.

Just as sure that most of us buy these kind of records, at best they can be fitted into a set, but as a scene here in the UK, I very much doubt it.

The crossover scene has evolved into a Sunday affair nowadays because most of the usual nights are/were flat and poorly attended, so I'm afraid the tempo of sweet soul will only ever be a group of mates in a back room of a club or pub.

Oh, that reminds me... The 117 club in Bishop Auckland is now in its 10... Or is it 11th yr and we've been playing loads of stuff like this down there!

Hollywood saxons and professionals being regular spins over the yrs, myself and Wayne from Shildon having both records each.... Well I had em, he still has em lol

One of my faves and a regular play is this

I Want To Groove You - Van Jones & The Jays:
