Soulsource Record Club Your Choice For Autum 2014

Recommended Posts

:hatsoff2:  HI ALL....YES IT'S ME BACK (for how long) feeling much better, so thanks for all the nice comments sent, also thanks for staying with the RECORD CLUB thread WELL DONE,

As I am very late with picking a new theme, I thought it was time for us to pick the TOP Favourites of each member, ideally pick a 45 from your collection, that you feel that it is a must have record to own, not easy! as I'm aware that there are similar threads all over the WEB, that your choice will also include info that will help younger soul brothers & sisters will enjoy your pick,.

WHY WE NEED TO DO THS?  On Friday we had a Gas man at a guess he was in his mid 20s, call at our house, he could not contain himself after noticing my record room, he asked me many questions about the rare soul scene, as he had started going to local events & was going to the Blackpool weekender,

Never to miss a opportunity to play records, I put on a few classics for him, what surprised me was he did not know some & the ones he did he was unaware of the artist or title, in-fact he needed some education, (this is something that is missing from other threads, with a couple of exception, John Manships gives a great potted write up on all of his items that I really enjoy.)

A list of must haves as opposed to the top 500 records that Kev Roberts put together will differ by the fact it is record club members pick, not 1 persons view, although Kevs book is excellent, this will be if we can be a collectors guide & benefits the up & coming DJs of to-morrow,

I have put a few pictures of what I call classics, but for some off the younger people they are newies,

To kick of the thread I have picked a big sound from 1972 that would be classed as a TORCH MECCA classic,

SMASH RECORDS #S2111 - the AMBERS - "Potion of LOVE" b/w "Another LOVE".

Impossible to pick just one out my collection but here's a tune all young/new soulies should know imo.Has everything,great soulful vocals,brilliant lyrics but one of the most important things is it shows that everything that is played isn't 100 m.p.h which is often a misconception.

Tony Clarke-(They Call Me) A Wrong Man MS

Glad you're feeling better Dave, we can all walk that path occasionally.

I think that the music helps to keep us rooted and takes us to a better place..

If you don't mind my saying that is..

Regards the Ambers, fabulous two sider - another that's become hard to find and expensive.

Here's a recent acquisition from me:

Always thought this a great example of feel good music and one to have in every collection.

Another that's sky rocketed out of my league, superb vocal group soul.

Top pick IMOP.

I would say that this is a collectors choice as I've never heard it played out anywhere as I guess

it's too down tempo.

For me it's an evocative summer record, that I picked up cheap many moons ago.

It's still doesn't command any great price but to me it's class.
