I thought my first was Dancing In The Streets by Martha & The Vandellas on Tamla Motown reissue in 1969 but I bought You Ain't Livin' Until You're Lovin' by Marvin & Tammi and that must have been 1968.

The very last one I bought was Betty Bibbs on Kent for 99cents

n.b. I would have had absolutely no idea that it was a 'soul' record, I just bought records I heard on the radio when it was my birthday or christmas etc

First time I bought a record consciously knowing it was a soul record was Ike & Tina Turner - Nutbush City Limits. Don't think I've bought my last one yet but most recent was Mary Jane Hooper - I've Got Reasons.

I sheepishly admit that the first record I bought was in 1983. It was Lionel Ritchie - Hello - UK Motown for a school girlfriend. ahem....

First proper soul record I bought was:

Gladys Knight & Pips - Walk In My Shoes - Soul (lilac/white)

Last I bought was:

Jones Brothers - Good Old Days - AVI

(Incidently, JM has got a PYE Int. copy up for £200 - is that the going rate???)

mmm, hard to remember, bought things like Jackie Wilson & Philly soul stuff without thinking of it as Northern.

I suppose first proper Northern would have been 'Jumping At The Go Go' LP. Last, 'Showstoppers - Heartbreaker' UK Beacon, just opened the package in front of me :thumbsup:

Discounting Pinky and Perky, the first record I bought was Stoned Love by the The Supremes.

The last was probably Open the door To Your Heart....Darrell Banks in 1975/6 just before I sold the modest collection I had to buy a Christmas present for a girl I was going out with. :thumbsup:

Could Pinky and Perky count as soul? I've heard worse on the scene! :thumbsup:

KTF.

First record purchased (1977): The Brothers "Sing Me" (UK Bus Stop) - an Opportunity Knocks winner in a pop-reggae sort of vein

First Northern (1978): James Coit "Black Power" on a pressing off Chesterfield market - this was a "whats this? its brilliant" situation, I didn't even know what Northern Soul was at the time :thumbsup:

First Collectors Item (1980): Sly and the Family Stone "Dance To The Music" on a US Epic white demo, £3.50 from JM

Most recent purchase (about 2 wks ago): Mary Saxton "Take My Heart" (Quality), kind of full circle as this also came from JM
