Well I've been a champion of this tune for more years than I can remember and I've never heard it out or understood why it never flew:

Cliffard Curry - East, West, North or South - Elf

Is it too common? Any ideas anyone?

Great tune, Dayo! Is this Clifford Curry as in 'She shot a hole in my soul'?

Which harmony group was he a member of?

Billy, yes it's the same Clifford Curry. Think he was in at least 4 vocal groups before going solo around 1967.

Miff - don't recall any covers but you might be right.

How about this? I don't know if anyone else knows this. With all the rave over The 5 Royales, this would sit perfectly next to it. As for Clifford Curry, I've been spinning my copy for at least a year now. Never gets old!

For the crossover/modern folks - Noah on Candy-Stix seems to me like a potensial "future monster".

All credit to Mr. Andy Dyson on this one. One to watch. Just wait until Soul Sam picks up a copy :dance:

Great tune innit, I've got the LP - "Soul" and "Gonna Find A Cave" are pretty good too...but then again, I'm probably biased being a fan of the Hanna-Barbera oeuvre :P

A pal of mine had the Banana Splits LP, which is where I got the J. Radcliffe / B. White info from - and Chalky's right, Carl Spencer is one of the writers too.

I found a bunch ( :shades: ) of EPs with the album spread across them, in some nice cartoon sleeves.

If I was feeling wicked I could bring the black/white - soul/not soul debate in here.

Which is most soulful:

Jimmy Radcliffe doing the "Banana Split" or Doni Burdick singing "I Have Faith in You"?

:thumbsup: Godz

the album is superb godzilla ....and i have to say i've played both the barry white written "doin the banana split " and the jimmy radcliffe written " soul" out in my sets ...the dancers love them but the chin-stroking anoraks maybe have a little problem with them :thumbsup:

in fact my avatar was me holding the album while i was playing it in glasgow

Cor, been playing the Clifford Curry in my DJ spots since I started I always thought it was a underplayed oldie?

Like this Four Rivers but not sure about the 5 Royales connection?

Have got a 5 Royales record called "Take Me With You Baby" every bit as infuriatingly annoying as the last one, absolutely fantastic! (if you like that sort of thing.....and I do!!)

Had both of them at one point!

Sorry I can't do a sound bite but I haven't got round to buying a cable thingy yet

Wasn't there a Josie & The Pussycats track played on the scene around 1973. I think it was on Capitol?

link

Was it "It's all right with Me" on Capitol?

And wasn't Patrice Holloway lead singer on the records? I think Cheryl (Charlies Angels) Ladd was in the group too.

I have a few singles in printed Kellogs envelopes :lol:

Funny one this. I had a spare of Noah, which I initially tried to flog to said Soul Samuel, along with Oliver Christian when he was round my gaff a year or two back. His view was that "it wasn't quite right for him". Still, I agree this one will have it's day....one day.

This is really a kind of sound that needs to played LOUD to really be appriciated. We played this one at our last

Allnighter and it sounded BLOODY GOOD actually :lol:

I'm sure Soul Sam would have thought differently if you played it for him today. Perfect crossover/modern dancer with strong kinda off-key (Soul Bros Inc Pyramid-style) vocals. One to watch.

Ok, talking of tunes that you don't hear out - here's a few.

No p*ss taking now. I'm not saying that any of these are unknown. I don't get out to Soul Nights these days so they may well be played to death, cheap, derided as rubbish etc :yes: So, making no claims, just would like to know if any of this lot ever get played out.

Crossfire - Take Me Back - Virtue

Keanya Collins - It Ain't No Secret - Blue Rock

David and the Giants - Super Good Feeling - Fame

Frank D'rone - -Think I Will - Cadet

Five Special - The More I Get To Know You - TEAL

Jimmy George - Aint It Something - Viva

Lovelites - When I Get Scared - Phi-Dan

Deans Lucas - Cry It Out Baby - Hill

Little Rock Brotherhood - Girl Watching On Broadway Avenue - Ref-O-Ree

Lenny O' Henry - Cheated Heart - ABC

Rainbows - It Wouldn't Be Right - Dave

DJ story you never want anyone to know; I asked my mate once if he knew the Calvin Arnold track and he said no, so I done the usual thing "blah blah blah must hear it" and I told him i'd put it in my set.. Called him over.. this is it its great....and from the speakers came "scoobie do I love you" I was so embarresed.. them words haunt me still.. :fool:

The Rainbows used to get spins from Steve Smith around the original Bretby years.

Ella Washington had some spins at Stafford. Other side great deep soul. Came out on Atlantic too I think.

Yeah, got one on Atlantic first and just got the Octavia copy recently. As you say Grass is Greener is a fantastic deep cut. Thanks for that Chalky.

Anybody got views on the others?

Should have said that Wake up Wiser is same as Bettye Swann but I think Chuck Borris version tops it.

For about a fiver (or less)!

Sweet Inspirations - Reach Out For Me - Atlantic - Wonderful, best version

Melba Moore - Let's Go Back To Loving - EMI 80's - Strings, heavy percussion - tight brass - Male vocal back up - Catchy chorus - yep I like it

Jimmy Justice - Burgundy, Port & Red Wine - B&C - About a guy hitting the bottle after the old lady has left - sound familiar?
