nothing would surprise me coming from a Rick Astley fan. :P

Grant Green, yes very nice. Not a patch on Bananarama though for soul power.

Seriously though, Rick Astley came round our house the other night to ask if he could borrow a spanner to undo the trap so he could sort out his blocked sink in his one bedroom flat. We told him to piss off and buy his own. :P

what's the range of rick astley's vocal chords?

about 20ft, if you have one of those weighted throwing knives.

not being funny, but this isn't really a rick astley site, nico. though you're more than welcome to add anything about soul music :P

Which one was Rick Astley? The one in the bad suit who sang quite flat or the one in the bad suit who sang very flat?

hmm, in order to bring it sort of back on track, am trying to think of soulful (as in northern soulful) guitar based tracks or ones where the guitar features prominently..... there must be some apart from Dean Parrish I'm on my way oh, and Eddie Bo Our love will never falter ( without straying too far into the obviously more guitar based R&B side of things)... someone help me out please, I'm sure I'm having a brain failure here.... :P

I bet none of you pisstakers have ever actually listened to Rick Astley, I have listened to more than a man should have had to as my girlfriend is/was a big fan, and he has a magnificent, powerful singing voice, and I'm being serious...have a listen to that track he did Cry For Help.

As for Grant Green, never heard of him...

Nico, we are sometimes very prone to irrelevance. I actually like Grant Green and have a large number of his LPs as leader as well as many of the ones on which he was a member of the group, such as the Grassella Oliphant Atlantic LP, and many of the classic Blue Note LPs. I also like Billy Butler, Ivan Jones (I have an original of Sweetback on Joka), Ernest Ranglin and quite a few others. The best guitarist I ever saw live was Phil Upchurch doing a solo of Mercy Mercy Mercy during the interval at Jimmy Smiths 1990 gig at Xenon, of all places.

I still don't like Rick Astley's material though.

Mid to late 60s, he went back to Blue Note after the Verve period to record things like Live At The Lighthouse.

Sorry but jazz is the worst music ever recorded - any genre of it. And people who profess to like it are always the pseudo intellectual types. I see Stuart Tyler is posting on this thread, SEE WHAT I MEAN :P

The juxtaposition of humour against vitriol within the words of your posting in the electronic medium reminds me of the early unpublished works of Bunuel's father, Isambard. Harlem Rumble is jazz (of a sort), as are most of the Skatalites records, and I reckon you like them. Malcolm X is a barely concealed cover of The Sidewinder by Lee Morgan for instance.

Therefore I am clearly ten times cooler than you. Nice! :P

Surely you could do a wicked version of One Note Samba? The Grassella Oliphant has been reissued but was never completely impossible on original. Replaced my knackered copy with a mint one for 8 dollars in New York. Has the best version of Canteloupe Island.
