Briles

Favourite all time

Recommended Posts

I know they'll perhaps vary week to week, month to month, year decade, etc, but wots your current fav.

Mine deffo - Johhny Caswell - You don't love me any more - sooo soulful, even right at the end he's giving it at the fade out. Heard it first 30 odd years ago, still love it. I'm a dinosaur, time to move on, not progressive, help me - (al wilson) ??

Faves at mo probably Choice of Colour or Freddy Hymes (which I have just swapped for - well not yet eh Mr. Dyson - in the post to you as we speak!)

Fave all-time would have to be High Keyes...or maybe Majestics...or maybe Don Gardner (Is This Really love)...or maybe Four Voices...or maybe Johnny Caswell (impecible taste Mr. Briles - smashin' record!)...or maybe Bob 'n' Fred...or maybe mel britt...really can't decide...

And like most here, I could list maybe 50 of 'all-time' faves, as I could with 'faves of moment'.

And yes, impecible (?) is a word I cannot spell...as if you hadn't noticed!

My current favourite is Marian Stewart's I Must Be Losing You, but there are just so many others. Also Mamie Lee I Can Feel Him Slipping Away, Carol & Gerri's How Can I Find The Way/On You Heartaches Look Good, and probably every track I dance to.

Good choice J-O-T (surprisingly! lol) Tolbert but I'd have to include Trace Of Smoke 'Treasure Mind' or maybe Sunshine Band 'Fly Away' or perhaps Tony Akien & Future 2000 'Good Things', hang on what about Executive Force or......b****cks, it's bleeding endless and almost impossible, and I haven't even touched the 60's newies side yet!

HOW DID THE KRL TOP 500 GET SELECTED, WAS THERE A VOTE, OR JUST FEEDBACK ON MOST REQUESTED PLAYS.

ED

Don't know for sure if it had any final decision on Roberts top 500 but he did ask for nominations of all time favourites & the reason why. At that moment ;-) I nominated Living a Lie - High Keys & sure enough there's my name under the record in the book. Unfortunately the bastard filled in a totally fictitious comment

from me about " try playing this when you've split with the missus" I still seeth every time I think of it. When I split with my missus I was playing happy days are here again

Roy, let me remind you that it wasn't me that played Ooooops upside yo head as the most talked about record at a recent Soul Night Anniversary. Your right to comment on taste has been revoked!!!!!! LOL ;o)))))))))))))

BTW all great records btw but not a patch on Tolbert IMVFHO ;o))

All time fave is Tommy Ridgely - My Love Gets Stronger - International City. Mid Tempo soul at it's very best (IMHO) ;-)

And agree with Mischief - Spyder Turner pure class and should be in everyones collection!

Not as good as LaReine Lamar IMOEAVFHO ;-)

Gotta disagree with ya there Billy!!! The lyrics for LaReine Lamar just don't seem to fit at time IMHO, or is it just me. Marion Stewart tho' kin ace chewn, remember this covered up in the 80's as Connie Clark by Carl Fortnum.

At the moment my all time favourite tune is The Primers on HALE - it just seems to have everything I want in a record ! The Tranells - Blessed with a Love is another one that always seems to get me going as well.

Never had an all time favourite, it has changed every week for the past 24 years.

but latest favourite is Strutt on Brunswick LP and "Said you Didn't Love Him"

* this is courtesy of a tape by a throughly decent fellow on here called Neil Felton

Definate tune is this one Brett. There's a couple of other nice tracks on the lp as well. Shame it never came out on a 45.

Hope you don't mind me coming in on this topic again, but I heard the Masqueraders' How Big Is Big at the Dome on Friday played by Ady Lupton, about 3rd record from the end. I've heard it before, but this was the first time in a club. Just brilliant, made me feel so emotional as I shuffled around to it.

Just got to get this one.

It's the flip to Please Take Me Back on Bell 874. Think the demos have PTMB on both sides.
