Holly St James

Recommended Posts

$1473? That's great, the more the merrier for me. Another copy last year fetched $1800. My copy certainly beats the 'Pink' one hands down. Almost given to me at the Casino about 1974. I was selling a few duplicates & had Mike Post's Afternoon on the Rhino, on pressing, for sale at £8. This lad came up & said, "Will you take £4 & this record?" Being a bit of a softy, I accepted & just chucked the record in my box. When I got home I played it & thought, it's not bad. Played it for some of my fellow DJ's and they thought it was awful, so in the box it stayed. I then quit the scene, for various reasons, sold off most of my collection (though always stuck with the music, playing the sounds regularly from tapes). I just couldn't give that record away! Then, when I took early retirement, about 9 years ago, I started to search the net for everything Northern Soul & noticed a massive sound was by an artist called Holly St. James. I thought that name sounds familiar, so up into the loft I went & sure enough there was a very nice copy of Holly St. James, That's Not Love... I often wonder if the lad that bought Mike Post off me realises what he gave me as part payment?

A very nice record.  But about as soulful as one of Donald trumps rants ?

I agree Pete. Not a soul record but a super atmospheric dance record.  :thumbsup:

Great atmospheric record that works best when heard loud in a venue. 

The production is great, the way it builds and builds all the way through to a crescendo, then drops right back down at the end!

Agreed. Just got in from the All Dayer at The Dome in north London - this was played and it packed the floor.
