The Staple Singers Trippin on your love Slooooooooooooooooooow intro but the pace picks up to a finger snappin groove so I'm not sure if this qualifies as heart stopping speed?

Now talking about intros that allow you to stick the kettle on, Terry Callier "I don't wanna see my self" allows you to cook a complete Sunday fookin roast before the dance floor explodes! So sadly this don't qualify either!

Soul Bros Inc is uptempo compared to

Buddy Smith - When you lose the one you love

and

Maxine Brown - Put yourself in my place

Gil Bernal - Can You Love A Poor Boy

Walter Jackson - Uphill Climb To The Bottom

Kenny Shepherd - What Difference Does It Make

Love all 3 of those, and the first one more so because I've only met one person who likes it.

loads of great slowies out there, slow to mid tempo stuff always my favourite.

used to love dancing to That Other Place by Wade Flemons all those years ago.

as matt says, Pyramid is not that slow once it gets going.

You can sit on the fence if you like, Steve :yes:

BTW, I have just developed a rare condition known as 'selective vision' and I'm unable to read the 2nd part of your post. Though knowing you as I do, I reckon it's bravado based on your recently acquired feeling of 'safety' in the Premiership. I'm sure it's hilairious none the less. sleep3.gif

Leeds on the 17th?

They used to end the nights at Placemate 7 in Manchester with an old Twisted Wheel 'fave' from the Impressions.

The name escapes me as usual. Maybe Dan could refresh it.

Slow as a dirge, but oh so soulful.

On saturday I thinned out the dancefloor pretty quickly with Kenny Lynch's Movin' Away....... .......way too slow for the busy feet of Southampon's finest!

This was the ender at Walls Of Heartache last month, quite a few of us were gliding aroung to it, nice record.

I love the Buddy Smith When You Lose The One You Love, played at Luton and TOS. Also Bobby Bennett's Alone With My Tears, great track. Personally like the Gil Bernal version of Poor Boy.

However none of these are dead slow, you can still shuffle around to them.

In my dim and distant youth slow soul records were played in clubs, almost deep soul, but you would get into a clinch with your girlfriend, maybe rock back and forth. Two that spring to mind are You'll Want Me Back by the Impressions and Such Is Love Such Is Life by the Miracles.

It seems that dancing with a girl is rather frowned on nowadays.

But if they were genuinely "the finest" surely they'd be able to dance to any tempo? :wicked:
