SOUL SOURCE RECORD CLUB 2018, 50 YEARS OF RARE SOUL

Posted

:hatsoff2:HI ALL. THIS YEAR WILL BE 50 YEARS OF RARE SOUL, BACK THEN THERE WAS STILL A DEVELOPING YOUTH CULTURE IN THE UK, AFTER ALL IT HAD ONLY BEEN RECOGNISED FOR 10 YEARS OR SO, WITH YOUR TEDDY BOYS, BEATNIKS, BAN THE BOMB LEFT WING STUDENTS, MODS & ROCKERS, HOWEVER IT'S THE MOD SCENE THAT HAS IT'S ROOTS IN US R&B MUSIC AS WELL THE INFLUANCE OF CARABEIAN CULTURE & MUSIC,WHICH DEVELOPED IN CELLERS OF OLD HOUSES IN WHAT WAS THE BLACK AREAS OF LARGE CITYS, FOLLOWING ON FROM THE RIOTS IN SHEPARDS BUSH, THE BLACK MUSIC SCENE WENT UNDERGROUND, AS SUCH THE MODS FOLLOWED, IN LONDON MANY FAMOUS BUT SHORT LIVED CLUBS SERVERD THE BLACK COMMUNITY WITH ALL NIGHT BLUES,GAMBLING HOUSES WHICH PLAYED THE JAMAICAN SOUNDS OF THE DAY, LIKE MOST MUSIC SCENES OF THE DAY DANCE MUSIC IS A THROW AWAY SCENE AS THE DJ WAS THE TOP DOG, TO KEEP THE CLUB RUNNING HIS RECORDS WERE A SECRET AND HE WOULD NOT LET ANYONE KNOW IT'S TRUE IDENTITY PLAYED.

AS THE 6TS MOVED ON THE R&B CLUBS STARTED PLAYING MORE UPBEAT BLACK MUSIC, & EVEM THE NAME CHANGED FROM R&B TO SOUL, SOME PEOPLE FROM TIN PAN ALLEY SAW A MARKET IN BLACK MUSIC THAT WAS NOT IDENTIFYED AS WORTHY OF RADIO PLAY, BUT PEOPLE LIKE RONAN O'RILRY HAD A NEW APPROACH BY PLAYING MUSIC FROM A SHIP, THIS WAS CALLED PIRATE RADIO, CAROLINE, RADIO LONDON TOOK TO THE AIR WAVES FROM 1963 TO 67 WHEN NEW LAWS ON BROADCASTING WERE INTRODUCED, MOST ALLNIGHTERS WERE BY WORD OF MOUTH, THESE WERE LOCATED IN THE NORTH & IN LONDON,WHERE THE FIRST RECOGNISED ALLNIGHTER STARTED, CALLED THE SCENE CUB IN GT WINDMILL STREAT IN SOHO THE MUSIC POLICY WAS A MIXTURE OF US BLACK R&B, JAMAICAN SKA & ROCK STEADY.

I would like to think that we have the passion of the worlds longest running Youth Sub Culture, To celebrate 50 years of rare soul, it would be good if you could make at least once a week to pick a sound that you feel hits your soul, the choice is yours alone, however still dig out those 45s that the night has made you expose it to the world via SOULSOURCE RECORD CLUB 2018.

MY FIRST PICK WILL FOLLOW ON SHORTLEY AS I STILL CAN'T GET MY HEAD AROUND MY PC TRANSFERING MUSIC FROM MY COLLECTION INTO A MUSIC LIBARY, IT'S NOT FARE, ANYWAY PLEASE TRY TO CELABRATE 50+ YEARS OF SOUL. BELOW ARE SOME OF MY MEMORIES OF 50 YEARS, IF YOU HAVE PICTURES OF LAST 50 YEARS THAT RELATE TO THIS THREAD POST THEM PLEASE

Here's one that escaped me from 1971 to 2018, a UK production , disappointingly with a Brotherhood of Man connection.

Sorry if it's been featured before, been a while since I posted.

Great record, great artist.  Label looks a lot earlier than 68 if a label design can have an age...

Hi Dylan

The year given on discogs is 1974 

Yes i do agree label looks 6ts  but the label began in 1955 same design 

Just found on wikipedia  label relaunched in 1971

Yes it is early 70’s

 

i read thread title wrong and thought it was for records from 68 that are 50 years old.

 

a favourite by geater for me is this one along with the sunbelt which is equally as good if not better.

Massive spin at Notts Oddfellows niter in Leicester - probably circa 1984. If memory serves me right it was the shamed vicar.

Yeah, I agree.

At the cheaper end of the market sometimes we need to forgive a tune for its weaknesses. I'm not complaining for a fiver though. It'll do as a little early-doors warm-up tune.

I'd been after this for years - there's lots about - but never got round to buying it... until now for a fiver. Managed to find another want (60s blue-eyed garage/mod) from the same seller to help take the sting out of shipping.

'Keep an Eye' is the favourite NS track of an old mate from Stoke, but I prefer this song from same LP (I think it was first released on the album? later released in a box set?) fab LP anyway

Someone did "press" the 45 up about 10+ years ago with Chris Clark "Something's Wrong" on the flip side.
