I don't normally listen to anything that isn't either old or soulful. But I'm probably missing out.

Recently heard this newish track by John Legend - Save My Love, which is neither Northern nor Rare Soul, but really appeals to me. Will post below.

What do you think of it?

Anything else out there isn't Northern or Rare Soul BUT close enough to appeal to old soulies?

You need to contact Roger Williams, Doger on soul source, I'm sure he could point you to what you seek,

Cheers for that. Have heard Roger DJ many times at Stoke and like his style of play, but was hoping to get something a little different here. Finally loaded up track.

What do you think?

I really like it (got a few funny looks the other day when it was playing in my local Boots shop and I started singing along without realising :( )

You might like this moderny thing with a familiar sample...

The tune is actually called "Save Room" - it uses more or less the same backing track as "Stormy" - quite popular on the Northern scene via The Supremes version a few years back.

Thanks for that. I've heard the Stormy track loads of time, but never made the connection.

There's a big, big world of great Soul Music out there, isn't there!

Check out "Each Day Get's Better" from the same Legend CD (sampling Four Tops "In These Changing Times" Beautifully).

As for the Sep "Thank You"... been a play of mine for a few years.

Nice!

So refreshing to read your post.....

"But I'm probably missing out"

"Anything else out there isn't Northern or Rare Soul BUT close enough to appeal to old soulies?"

Superb attitude and approach.

Oops! I can feel a 'Soul Essence' plug coming on!

I'm probably not the man for the newies that sound old, which is what I think you're after, Col. You could always check out the podcast I do now:

https://www.jellycast.com/directory/index.p...cast&id=853

You never know mate, there may be something in there you like. Just check out the modern room thread, there's plenty of good stuff always gets thrown up in the weekly postings.

Cheers

Roger

Yep, although its not playing, but I can see its Terry McCollum.
Best new release of the year for me. Went down well in Aldershot last month & I'm going to give it a spin saturday at Bisley. Perfect.

Col.



Sean, fair chance I'll see at Soul Essence.

Roger, cheers for the pod cast, will give it a whirl.....

Sean - I only heard this last week. I think it's a wicked a track - obviously many others agree. Is it difficult to find?

Peter :thumbsup:

Hi Peter,

If you mean the 'Sep' "Thank You" track, I mentioned this on one of the Modern threads a week or two ago.

I've had it a few years from the owner and been playing it out ever since.

The demo I have is slightly different to the finished mix, which came out 'uncredited' on the end of a Chris Hill CD "Get This Party Started" (or similar).

It's still officialy 'unreleased' as the owner has struggled to get clearance on the "I'll Be Around" Riff.

:thumbsup:

Yes, its nice when that happens. Although I'm currently trying to get in tune with my grand-children.

The Donald McCollum link from Blake is still broken. Can somebody fix pls. Its well worth hearing.

Thanks.
