Sadly it's not that often I play mi records at home these days  -that would help explain that when I DJ out with them I can't remember what half of 'em sound like (laughs).

Nina Simone ‘Take care of business’ (Philips LP only track from 1965) an incredible piece of music

C.L. Black ‘Love don’t feel like love no more’ (45)

Pretenders ‘It’s everything about you’ (Carnival)

Annette Poindexter ‘Wayward Dream’ (Twinight)

Garland Green ‘I’ve quit running the streets’ (RCA LP only track)

Chuck Armstrong ‘A better place’ (Black Rock)

Don Hollinger ‘Cruel World’ (Atco)

The Dynamic Superiours ‘I’m a looser’ (Chapel)

Jimmy Jones ‘Yesterday’s mistakes’ (Twinight)       

Milt Grayson ‘You’re old standby’ (Derby)


Evening Derek

Nice picks Sir.

Chuck Armstrong is so, so good. Might dig a few out later.

Fabulous Caprices "My Love" (Camaro)

Barrino Brothers "Just a mistake" (TCB)

OV Wright "Treasured moments" (Back Beat)

Dynells "Let me prove that I love you" (Blueberry)

Brook Benton "Where does a man go to cry" (RCA)

Kenny Carter "I've got to find her" (RCA)

Masqueraders "How big is big" (Bell)

Chris Bartley "Tomorrow keeps shining on me" (Musicor)

James Bell & The Highlighters "Amazing Love" (RoJam)

Flint Emeralds "Just like a baby" (Gatewood)

Freddie South "Set me free" (King David)
