I find it impossible to do a top 10 as it changes all the time, but here are some I've played tonight to relax. In a bit of a Modern soul mood.

Cory Blake - How Can I Live Without You

Bobby Thurston - The Very Last Drop

Leon Bryant - I Can See Me Loving You

Chanel - My Life

Sandra Wright - I Come Running Back (awesome record)

Lou Rawls - See You When I Get There

Gloria Scott - Too Much Love Making

Sunburst Band - Everyday

Essex IV - My Heart Is Calling

Main Ingredient - Work To Do

But next time it might be straight up Northern or beat ballads or R&B, depends on the mood

Hasn't Bobby Kline been re-issued on a EP sort of thing?

Has been issued on an EP on 'Vintage Soul' records - don't know how legit it is.

Includes:

Bobby Kline - 'Say something nice to me'

Kenny Sheppard - 'What difference does it make'

Reggie Alexander - 'It's better'

Johnny Mae Matthews - 'I have no choice'.

Haven't seen one of these around for many a year - does anyone have an idea of worth?

HTH

My friend's got one, I'll convince him to sell....

Make sure you have a listen to all the tracks before parting with any cash as my Bobby Kline jumps at one point (I think a number of them suffer with this).
