I have to say I've got as much from reading the sleeve notes as I have from listening to the CD a good few times so far. Really interesting thanks Ady and all those who helped you. Steve.

We'll be putting out some 45s on a brand new Kent Pied Piper label starting in March. In the meantime if people want to cut any acetates or carvers for DJing purposes feel free to.

Hi Ady, thought you might appreciate knowing that I received this notification from Amazon this morning:

We regret to inform you that your order will take longer to fulfill than originally estimated. Our supplier has notified us that there is a delay obtaining stock for the following items you ordered on January 26 2013.

Various Artists "Pied Piper Presents A New Concept In Detroit Soul"

We are awaiting a revised estimate from our supplier, and will email you as soon as we receive this information.

Any ideas what the problem is and, more importantly (and appreciating that you're not Amazon's customer service!), when stock will be available???

Amazon seem to have it in stock, though it now says through Reissues Direct which is actually us, so I'd have another go and if it don't work out get it through us www.acerecords.com

We're sending them more stock, this seems to be a hot item :)

Thanks for letting us know

I've had problems with Amazon before with new releases. When the Darrow Fletcher CD came out in October, I pre-ordered it.

A month later it was still unavailable from them and a week later I got an e-mail from them saying they weren't sure when it

would arrive. I finally cancelled my order and got it immediately from another web site.

Just checked the status of my order from amazon, showing as "In Stock" but not yet dispatched, which as a pre order i find strange ........ but noticed that they've increased the price by 0.50 to £9.50.

No doubt the price will slowly creep up if they can't get enough copies in stock !

Not quite Top Of The Pops, but if you've got a PR person they should be yelling from the rooftops! For a deep-specialist album like this to even be in the Top 200 is a f*ckin' miracle plus it's holding today as well which is brilliant.

Ministry Of Sound are probably on the phone now asking who these Pied Piper guys are and how did Ministry miss 'em.......... :lol:

I just got mine from Amazon this morning, all of the above then!!! very enjoyable and its been really fun waiting for the release, what makes Northern soul fun, from a music point of view...

Only down side, we have to wait a year for Vol 2..

well done Ady and all at Kent / Ace, a job well done...

Ps question, the Gamblers Blues track, Tim Brown gave a strange comment when he auctioned an Acetate of this track late last year, he mentioned it was highly unlikely that the track would ever be released due to legal wrangling, I have no idea what that actually relates to, but its obviously its not the case, but his recent Tim Brown speaks column mentions a deal he did with the source, which did not include that track??

what that all about

Hi Steve,

I'm here basking in this warm glow of being part of a charted album after all these years. I always knew we had talented artists, writers, arrangers and musicians. I'm sorry that it took so long for the recognition (outside of you all) and I hope it keeps selling and selling and selling.

I know I don't have to thank you, but I do. I know I don't have to say how much I love my Soul Source family, but I do. The CD still has a way to go and it's much too soon to get emotional, but I am. :wub:

I don't think he knew we had accessed the original masters from the original production company at that stage. To be fair it was a surprise to us after all these years of people searching for them.

Just like the first toke of a crack pipe, its clear you will be back.

On toke 2 of this CD and I will be back.

Stunning, although just to keep Ady on his toes, and I appreciate the last two tracks are historically relevant, but they are kack, so 100% hit rate for vol 2 please (although I should say thanks for putting them both at end, makes the ff much less hassle)

Kent I think I love you....

I'd concur with Jock wholeheartedly and also add that I continue to be impressed with Ace's mailing.

I ordered on line early last week only to receive the Etta James comp despatched by mistake a day or two later.

e mailed Ace and their despatcher, Phil Stoker, mailed correct order which arrived the following day.

Nice one Phil.

The Damned in their early phase - pre TOTP - were great - and great live too

Good to see Ace releasing more of this kind of stuff.

The stuff Ace is releasing is from when they actually made their TOTP debut and promoted 3 or 4 singles!
