If you do know Ian, his single mindedness and determination will ensure that he'll make every effort, and more, to make a recovery. Pity the doctors & nurses though !

Best wishes to Ian and a speedy recovery. It really is a ghastly thing to happen.

 

And a reminder to you all to get your blood pressure checked regularly. This one creeps up on you suddenly and then boom!

This is like a family member we have lost contact with over a silly argument, and we need to make up  with them before its too late, in fact he is a senior member of the Northern Soul family and all in all I know he has our respect and best wishes, he brought us pleasure in the music he discovered which is immeasurable and the music he made. A true legend for me......Get Well soon Ian ........

Dear Ian, I know I sent a message via FB to you, but nevertheless I echo the sentiments on Soul Source. Get well soon and hope to see you at the Hammersmith event if you can make it.

Ian just called us to say 'Thanks from the bottom of his heart' for all the good wishes.

Sadly Ian cannot make the launch night of his new Cutting Edge promotion at the Hammersmith Club, W6 on Sept 6, but hopes you might try it.

Get well soon Ian, hope you pull through and make a full recovery. I echo what both Spot and Arthur (Fenn) said. The best parts of my life were spent in the Highland room. Venue number 1 for me thanks to  you and Colin and the sounds you discovered and played.       Stupot, Snaith, E Yorks

A speedy recovery Ian, those nights at the Highland room will never be forgotten, it was part of my history and the process of my learning to love the music and the scene. The records that you introduced to the scene will always be legendary and will live on forever.

From a fan and a someone with a great deal of respect for your work and input to the Northern Soul scene.

Actually I've been meaning to go visit him but I've been pretty submerged over the last few weeks. One of my labels is the Disco Recharge imprint which releases classy Disco/Hi-Nrg compilations and we've recently been repackaging and remastering much of Ian's back-catalog from Evelyn Thomas, Miquel Brown, James Wells and Barbara Pennington which are all selling very nicely for niche market releases. Here's most of 'em to date:-

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_14?url=search-alias%3Dpopular&field-keywords=disco+recharge&sprefix=disco+recharge%2Cpopular%2C134

 

However, we're about to release two specific Ian Levine compilations which have been compiled by Simon White and which are both getting some great reaction and doing very nicely in the Amazon rankings:-

 

24 Hours A Day - Ian Levine - The Disco Years

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/DISCO-RECHARGE-HOURS-LEVINE-YEARS/dp/B00JYDGIYG/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1410883249&sr=1-1&keywords=disco+recharge

 

Beating Faster - Ian Levine - The Hi-Nrg Years

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/DISCO-RECHARGE-BEATING-FASTER-LEVINE/dp/B00JYDGJ0E/ref=sr_1_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1410883249&sr=1-2&keywords=disco+recharge

 

Both albums are currently both in the Top 10 Funk and Top 20 Disco Amazon charts which are the most lively positions he's seen for a few years I reckon. So I'm just waiting to get the finished copies in my hand and THEN I'll go see him! I'm pretty sure that will cheer him up some!

Ian, another two here wishing you all the best. Don't think you'll remember us but you might remember buying Deep Blue Train on UK Verve from me at Sale Mecca '73- '74 ish .  Rich and Gill Hillel.   PS  Our mutual friend Tony Davidson (not on SS) also wishes you the best for a speedy recovery.

I remember that period really well and can remember Ian breaking that tune first. No one could believe there was a new discovery on UK Verve. Well done you guys for finding that. Took me years to find one and by then no one was interested. I think the only place it was ever played was via Ian's gigs at the time. I miss these bold, brassy UK Northern releases. The UK production teams in the 60s were quite often better than their US counterparts at the time in my opinion.

'Deep Blue Train' is s real weird one. Props for finding it. Proper digging. :)

Just seen this so apologies for a late reply.

 

Just want to wish you the best for a full and speedy recovery.  My mum had a stroke some years ago so I've seen the difficulties it can cause and wouldn't wish it on anyone.  She made a good recovery over time, so I'm hoping the same can happen for you.  I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

 

Best of luck,

 

Nick Brown.

........hehe...you ain't popped it yet then mate?!x Been around the Med and some Arab lands since I read this thread.....and was inspired to think of you twice en route....straight up!x 1 guy who is a 'MC' who sung on some of our tunes and huuuge around the Med mentioned your influence.....as did a Music Producer/writer who brought your name up too! I was wearing me Northern styled T Shirt which prompted those 2 sole responses directed at me as a consequence of wearing it! Only time I wore it and that was the 'chat'!!! Cred indeed Ian.........Northern Soul....Ian Levine.......legendary stuff!x

Well Ian Levine is back after his major stroke with a brand new podcast.

After nearly four months in hospital, his determination to do an all new three hour Podcast is quite amazing, and a surprising testament to his strength of will.

After all he's been through, I hope you will all listen to it with an open mind and give it a chance. All the best Ian.

Just read "Northern Soul - An Illustrated History" by Elaine Constantine and Gareth Sweeney.

Clear highlights for me include the interview snippets with Ian, how he hunted down and discovered so many unknown records in America, and then "broke" them back on the dancefloors of the UK, creating many a "monster" in the process.

The 4000 looted records in one trip - what a catch!!

Also, of course interesting with the whole "Modern" aspect of things.

Myself being a lover of all (well, at least most) styles of soul, I can appreciate that. Must have been really revolutionary back in the first half of the 70´s...

Despite all the critique directed at him - for me at least, he remains an inspiration when it comes to record collecting and DJ:ing.

 

Ian Levine, stay strong!!

Great to see him back. Love and best wishes from Chris Frost

His influence in the evolution of underground club culture was massive, which in turn paved the way for the appreciation of black American dance music like we have in 2014.

Get well soon.
