OVO, where do we draw the line?

Posted

I don't want to start another ovo argument but just wondering. i have records in my collection that i wouldn't play out. Some examples

Formations- At the top of the stairs- MGM (orig on Bank)

yvonne Caroll- Stuck on you- Domain (white writing for label name orig black writing)

Joe Turner- Two loves have i- Phillips (french) (orig on Bluestime)

Bobby Moore and the formosts- It was a lie- Red bird (orig on dw)

Superlatives- Lonely in a crowd- Westbound (orig on DW)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ligit 2nd issues

Betty harris- I'm evil tonight- Sansu

Steve Karmen- Breakaway- United artists

----------------------------------------------------------------

UK issues

Olympics- Baby do the philly dog/ Mine exclusively- Action (origs on Mirwood)

Jackey beavers- Trying to get back to you girl- Jay boy (demo) (orig on Dade)

Grapevine uk issues and demo's

My main reason for asking is that i recently saw a dj  (at an ovo night) playing a record on a national (us) label whilst i made sure that i had it on the orig (us) local label.

Am i right or do you think that there are some that i could play out.

I retired from DJ'ing some time ago and my advice is based on the policy IMHO of the gig/s you are intending to play at.

I have seen DJ's sent home from abroad for playing bootlegs and heard of records being removed from turntables (and smashed) (not that you would consider them anyway) so it is and always be a risky subject.

Check with who is running any event and play to the policy of the the promoters.....simple

a terrible topic

i thought we got away from this sort of weak discussion on here

this is meant to be a forum about soul music

my advice

If you really need to post up topics on  a public forum asking about what records you can dj with then suggest you just simply give up dj-ing 

simple
