The Soul Enigma Codes

Recommended Posts

The cover-up thread has convinced me that the rare soul scene has a language just as complicated as the engima codes of the Second World War. Can you help crack them?

On 5th Spetmber 1981, in an edition of 'Echoes', Richard Searling listed his Top Twenty Crockets' Sounds. Some are covers, some obscurities, some classics and one or two may even be wind-ups - you decide. Some are still big sounds others have drifted with time. This is what Richard listed back in 1981.

1. Your Love is Slippin Away - Maurice McCallister (Chess)

2. Over and Over Again - Dee Dee Gartrell (Cyclone)

3. That's The Way Its Gonna Be - James Lewis (Legend)

4. Your Love Keeps Me Dancing - Lee Moore (Source)

5. Like I Never Did Before - The Chessmen (Checker)

6. I Got It From Heaven - Bobby Hutton (ABC)

7. I'm Not Worried - Cody Black (D-Town)

8. How Can I Tell Her - Leon Bryant (Delite)

9. Memories No Time - Spyder Turner (MGM)

10. Learning How To Dance - Roddie Joy (Red Bird)

11. That's The KInda Man I Am- Bobby Adams (Big Bee)

12 All of My Life Spent Waiting For You - Lamarr Thomas (Epic)

13. Get Ready for Love - Inner Space (Fizz)

14. Gonna GIve You My LOve - Garry Glenn (PPL)

15. I'll Never Say Goodbye - Eddie Daye (Shrine)

16. No Second Chance - Phantom Janitor (Stax)

17. When He's Not Around - Rose Valentine (RCA)

18 I'm Comin Over - Johnny Honeycutt (Triode)

19. I Can Make You Love Me - Prince George (Era)

20. The Love Who Loves You Not - Herbie Williams (GWP)

Your assignment, should you chose to accept it, is to uncover the cover-ups, price the sounds on mint original at today's prices, identify album tracks, and 'expose' any wind-ups. By all means comment on the quality of the set. But information always trumps opinion. Remember, even if you can only crack one part of the code, it may help the soul nation.

A Top Tune!

Any advance on those above - for example:

7. I'm Not Worried - Cody Black (D-Town)

19. I Can Make You Love Me - Prince George (Era)

Dont be shy with prices either - the code is almost cracked.

...Just No 19 to go and the Searling code is cracked.

What was 'I Can Make You Love Me' - Prince George (Era)?

Nothing do do with Prince George's 'Wrong Crowd' (DPG) nor Othello Roberston's 'So In Luv' (Era)

Who is going to tap in the last goal - and claim the glory? Is there a glory hunter in the house?

If you change the 'can' to 'gonna', we can put it down to the Combinations on Kimtone ?

That's really interesting. I would have thought, with the abundance of media avenues, that they'd be uncovered in an instant :rolleyes:
