Members Intros - Welcome to Soul Source

Recommended Posts

A new topic set up for new (or even longtime ) members to post up a Soul Source intro

Nothing major needed, just a quick heads up to all our members, letting them know that you are on here and ideally a brief bit about yourself.

It's a great way to break the ice!

    Thanks but still feeling a bit vulnerable as wife is still away. Glad I've got the records to keep me occupied.

    Being burgled is a horrible experience - It happened to me many moons ago. I came back from a soul night and I couldn't get in to my house because they had locked it from the inside. 

    When I finally got in, the place was a mess, I looked across my living room to see one of my record boxes had been opened (The latches were undone) My heart sank, I raced over to it, opened it, only to find they hadn't taken a single one! Then I had a sudden comedy moment of..."Oh. Well they could have at least taken one!".... I half expected to find a tape from them to put my terrible taste in music right :D

    The nastiest bit was that I was getting married in a couple of weeks, and they had stolen the wedding rings, and to add insult to injury, they placed the two wedding ring boxes neatly on the pillows on our bed. In hindsight I should have seen that as an omen, as that was my first marriage.....

    Your head wonders though - I was at a soul night, people knew I was out, who was it? I even confronted some lads who used to hang around our street, but those thoughts are not healthy. You just have to put it down as bad luck, and try your best to forget it.

    All the best,

    Len :thumbsup:

    Sorry to hear that Len. Still blame myself, in a way, but been told it's the scum that broke in is to blame. We got burgled 24 years ago while both out at work, the house alarm was installed the following week. Records not touched on either occasion. Not sure what that means to a burglars taste in music, LOL. They're just after money to put up their noses. ATB.

    Hi my name's Mike rathbone I am a soul music stalwart particularly the 60s n 70s when I'm not listening to it or watching it I'm playing it out somewhere hopefully to the enjoyment of others 

    Any relation to the famous actor, Basil?  He's one of my very favourites.

    Welcome all, be sure to drop into 'All about the soul' and 'Look at your box'. Feel free to post up your fave tunes and if any information required on specific sounds start a thread, the 'info wanted on this one...' threads are very informative and interesting!

    See you over there!

    Welcome Terry, be sure to post a thread in 'All about the soul' it can be about your fave sounds/venues/memories. Also check out 'Look at your box' and add something there if you like, after 50 years collecting you must have some knowledge for the 'Soul source guide to record collecting'? Enjoy, and again, welcome! :hatsoff2:
