If you were dj'ing to yourself

Recommended Posts

ok .... Wondered what people would play for themselves if they were dj'ing to themselves only using records they own.....remember yr not trying to pack a huge dance floor..... Just what you alone would love to hear played out loud. Indulge yourselves!! The spot is 20 records...no more no less.

today mine might be :-

sly and family stone - I ain't got nobody

connie austin - she made a mistake

obrey wilson - if you were there

gracie darnell - the bad guys

v wagers - lucky I found you

jimmy burns - you're gonna miss me

dee dee warwick - I can't go back

roy wright - you changed my life around

districts - one lover

winstons - ain't nothing like a little lovin'

johnny davis - you got to crawl to me

gerri shivers - let's try it again 

cm lord - oh mama 

chuck jackson - I'll fight till I win your love

shirelles - wait till I hear the signal

lee stone - I'm gonna put you down

jack montgomery - baby, baby take a chance on me

gwen owens  - mystery man

jimmy helms - you're mine you

sylvia st clare - it hurts to see you happy

whos next???

I don’t have a fancy set up at all. Technics separates - amp, deck, CD player etc, ploughed through some old JVC speakers. All very entry level, old kit - they were my mums who passed away 14 years ago. I miss my mum - it would have been her birthday today. 

What is really cool is that my mum had an awesome Technics released cd - jazz and modern soul. I’ll go and find it in a minute - had some awesome soul on it including Ike Noble etc.

Here you go - awesome track list.

Acquired a hard drive from Eddie SITS.

Donated the required amount to charity.

Plug and play, random selection.

29000 tracks give or take.

Promise to switch off after 20.

Gone back in time to a time when I did not know what was coming next, no top 500 then.

AND I truly only know, to any tangible degree, half of the tunes on this drive anyway, even today!

Your top 20 should evolve...

Just spend a few hours track hopping on YouTube and you will never get bored. Just too much quality out there to get stuck in a time warp.

Love it, a top 20, which is easy cause this lot are the first twenty in a ‘my favorites’ Playlist on my phone, and that goes everywhere with me :-)

One thing, I have sold June Jackson, which I obviously really regret now, I knew I would :-(

Troy Dodds - Try my love

June Jackson -  Your Welcome

Jack Montgomery - Don’t turn your back on me...

George Smith / I’ve had it

Lee Bates - why don’t you write

Marva Josie - don't

The Tears - Good luck my love

The Marvellows / somethings burning

Carl Carlton -  I can feel it

Mighty  marvellows - talking bout you baby

Gene toons - what more do you want

etta James - Can’t shake it

Ruby Andrews - got a bone to pick

Sage - I’m alive 

Ike Perkins - when the bottom falls out

Margie Joseph - one more chance

james Reese & progressions / the joker (where did you came from)

Gladys Knight / pips - what good am I without you

Keni Lewis -  Ain’t gonna make it easy

Millie Jackson - if loving you is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

I don’t have a fancy set up at all. Technics separates - amp, deck, CD player etc, ploughed through some old JVC speakers. All very entry level, old kit - they were my mums who passed away 14 years ago. I miss my mum - it would have been her birthday today. 

What is really cool is that my mum had an awesome Technics released cd - jazz and modern soul. I’ll go and find it in a minute - had some awesome soul on it including Ike Noble etc.

Here you go - awesome track list.

I was given this years ago by a friend who bought some Technics kit but wanted to play only classical on it. Terrific cd, mainly or even exclusively pulled from the Timeless label. Like the Move Records catalogue, that would be worth a serious revisit - just in case a stray record company executive looking for reissue ideas is visiting the site :shades:

"Something's Burning" was sung by The Marvellos (L.A. group who worked with L.A. Jobete Music producers).  The Marvellows were a Chicago group, who sang ""I Do" and "In The Morning", later becoming The Mighty Marvelows, who sang "Talkin' 'Bout Ya Baby (on your list above), and who worked in Chicago, with Johnny Pate.
