The "sounds" Section

Recommended Posts

I have put some track up in the “Sounds” section that have been in recent posts, primarily for the benefit of anyone who does not have access to a million quid and a thirty plus year collecting career! They play a bit slow unless you use one of the audio streamers, perhaps Mike can sort it? I hope that they start some discussion threads that will kill off a bit of the negative crap we have had lately.

Little Ron – top tune or thank god there’s only the one?

Hamilton Movement – the all genre encompassing record, funk deepfunk, modern, and northern or over-priced and over-hyped?

Little Willie Faulk – Butch’s best funk record or Stafford has-been that nobody danced to that I can remember at the time?

Eddie Billups – quality mid-tempo master piece or dirge that, if it was a fiver, would still been in every dealer’s box?

Monzas – blue-eyed soul or white garage crap?

Lost Soul – acceptable blue-eyed soul or a crime against humanity?

Little Ron - top tune or thank god there's only the one?

Little Willie Faulk - Butch's best funk record or Stafford has-been that nobody danced to that I can remember at the time?

Eddie Billups -  quality mid-tempo master piece or dirge that, if it was a fiver, would still been in every dealer's box?

You don't seem to want negativity Hippo, but...

Little Ron - 4/10, tops (thank god there's only one)

Hamilton Movement - dire (funk? who cares?)

Little Willie Faulk - have long thought this was distinctly average (Stafford has-been)

Eddie Billups - neither masterpiece not dirge...somewhere in between...5.5/10

Monzas - unbelievable missed opportunity...with, say, Garland Green as lead this would be 9/10...but with Perry Como's brother......3/10 tops (white garage crap)

Lost Soul- have always thought this is total shite...3/10 (crime against humanity)

Mind you, wish I had them to flog!

Just thought that I should mention that the Hamilton Movement RA of yours

is heavily pitched down :thumbup: Compare it to the real thing. It's much faster.

Over-priced? Yes. Over-hyped? Maybe. A fantastic soul record? Sure is!

Cheers,

'Hey, you, get offa' ma cloud...'.... :thumbup:

just a very quick note on the sounds section

there is a problem as the mp3s were uploaded at 48 rather than 44 which makes them play slower via the flash player

got solution but will take a bit of time

till then will take the slow ones down

Works fine over here. :thumbup: Would be nice if you could add a link to the actual MP3 files though so we don't have to pretend to be Sherlock Holmes in order to download the sound clips to our hard drives. I sorted it myself this time, but it would really make things easier and less time consuming if you add an option to download the files as well. Or am I just thick and can't find where to do it? blush.gif

And as for the sounds... Little Willie Faulk is inferior to the mindblowing Ree Flores version (which I love to pieces and wouldn't mind an original copy of) but still quite nice. Hamilton Movement is a great track. Eddie Billups is also OK. The rest of them are not for me.
