Had one at home with the family, and the one getting the plays is Mary Wells and "He's A Lover" think i prefer this to the Tutti Hill version.......it's that small "fantastic" horn section that blasts in, albeit briefly, that does it for me...great stuff.

Difosco, Sunshine Love: Earthquake,

Ray Pollard, Wanderlust: Decca,

The Dramatics, Your love was strange: Volt,

Bought all 3 over the weekend, they all sound fresh, picked 'em up cheap (IMO) so am feeling quite chuffed.

Ron Henderson & Choice of Colour - Your Love, what a superb 70's tune, been playing it all weekend on the Carolina Soul Survey Compilation CD by Grapevine, also enjoyed listening to Al Greens Greatest Hits which just happens to be 30 years old, unbelievable, it still sounds so good.

Promatics - Think I'm Gonna Let You Go - Brown Door  :good:  :thumbsup:

Whats your record of the weekend?

link

Sounds interesting Chalky, is it the same label as Marvin Holmes/Dorothy Morrison?

Strange choice of tunes, having read some of the debates here recently have made me disillusioned re Northern a bit again so to cheer me up have been playing happy disco music!

D Train - Your The One For Me (always liked it as disco hit but when heard it played on full club system in middle of house set it blew me away)

D Train Walk On By - Just a great treatment of a great song, disco heaven.

and finally a record I always turn to when needing cheered up

The Dells Walk On By - Deep soul treatment of a great song (can you tell I like this song) it just lifts my spirits everytime.

These have been on repeat on my turntable!!

Cheers

Jock

Tempests "Someday" (SMASH)

Heard Tony Hatfield play this at York last night - WOW! :thumbup: ....can't believe I've never heard it before, but I have led a sheltered life blush.gif

The one I'm playing is a soundbyte, as I haven't got one yet, but it's on my wants list so if bennybobby's got one, please let me know - l_l_m_w@hotmail.co.uk.

err...yes  blush.gif   pretty good, prefer What Is Soul though  :thumbup:

link

Like 'em both & think they're very similar, the difference is mainly in the tempo. At the moment I'm leaning to I lost my baby which is the slower side, but that could change in time. Played both sides to a few people & the under 40's seem to prefer What is soul with the over 40's favouring I lost my baby. Whatever, 2 cracking tunes both well worthy of a spin.

Well the over 40's probably can't keep up with the more uptempo side :P:P

I'm still under 40 so the uptempo side does it for me :thumbup:blush.gif

Like you said two cracking sides :P Cheap record too well worth picking up :yes:

Hollywood Spectrum-"I Gotta Get Back To Lovin' You" on Cotillion. Been my top record at least 3 weeks now! Definitly deserves more attention.

Just out of curiosity when and where did this get spins, if any at all.

Also, (and shoot me down in flames on this one if you must) Mark (Maddog) spun, rather daringly, I thought, The Flaming Emeralds "Have some everybody"-Fee F**k how good did that sound booming round a venue again!! Haven't heard that since Wigan. With the 'revive a seventies tune' tip going on, I shall dig this out again! blush.gif

Wow, just listened to it at the soulclub.

Great taste Billy. :thumbup:

I got to get me this LP, too, also the other tracks mentioned are pretty good.

Has anybody a value for this LP and what is it called? Hopefully a poor student is also able to buy it. :yes:

Its actually Maurice Long, on 45 and LP, dont have the LP but believe it has at least one other good track.

I used to play this regularly at Shotts, fantastic ending, bit slow for current crowd methinks.

Yes it is the same version, but I don't have the money at the moment to pay 500 or 600 UKP.

So I decided to get me the cheaper version, also I think the Lee Maye version is a little bit better.

But when I get rich.. thumbsup.gif

PS: You can listen to both versions at JM's site :thumbup:

I had nice weather in Baltimore this weekend, but the real records didn't come out to play.

Picked up a few odds and ends, but one of the highlights for me was picking up the Rose Royce LP on Epic for $1 with the track "Still In Love". Really nice jazzy soul song from 1982 with a long instrumental break. Would love to have the 12" of this. Really classy song. Also got a free Timi Yuro LP. Record is trashed but the cover is halfway decent. Quincy Jones "Stuff Like That" white promo 12" from 1978-NEVER SEE THIS! Got to be rare.

My favorite finds were on CD though. Picked up some good used CDs. Got the out-of-print Motown Year By Year CD for 1964. Has "Midnight Johnny" and "If Your Heart Says Yes" by the Serenaders. I've been dying to hear that track again for the longest time. I havent heard it for years. not bad for $3.00. I also picked up a couple of the Dap-Tone CDs used-Sharon Jones and the Mighty Imperials CDs. I've really slept on this stuff because I get skeptical about people making new old-sounding soul music, but I have to admit, they do a great job of making things sound authentic. I was very impressed with the sound and the packaging. And then I picked up a nice Incognito CD from 1999-No Time Like the Future-had a nice house version of "Nights Over Egypt", plus "Fearless" which was a big Norman Jay spin. Always liked that group. I'm sure there's loads of great Acid Jazz that I've never heard, too.

Heard a lot of people talking about D-Train on here...I'm working on running the entire Prelude label and so far I've got quite a bit, but I constantly get doubles. If anyone's looking for Prelude stuff, let me know. I have many spare copies for sale. I don't have Lorraine Johnson or Gayle Adams "Baby I Need...", but have loads of other titles for sale. If anyone needs D-Train and stuff like that, bw sure to PM me about it.

Happy digging everyone. I'm hoping next weekend will be more fruitful in the northern soul department for me. C'mon Shrine, Hem, Hubba Bubba, Ru-Jac...where are you?

Tempests - Someday is one of the best tunes played at Stafford. Dawn Brown played it for me on my 40th birthday, and just about every other chance she gets. thumbsup.gif

My tune of the weekend. Jackie Wilson - Higher and Higher. I walked into a shop at the weekend. Three shop assistants and one of their mates at the till, had absolutely lost it. They were all belting it out, out of tune, and jigging along. It totally consumed them and they must have temporarily forgotten where they were.

My missus moaned about it. I said, "Thats what a really ###ing good record does to you, and the only place I get to see that reaction regularly is at Northern Soul do's. "

Aint we lucky.

Sorry Jock, meant Marurice Long....

The two goood tracks are the A & B of the single on Cyclone. The other flip's called "A lover's question". No where near as good as other side but not bad as B-0sides go :thumbup:

My highlight was hearing Larry Banks & Jaibi 'You Make Me Feel So Good' belting out of a coffee shop on Islington Green. Presumably off Dave Godin's Deep Soul Treasures Vol 4 as it hadn't been out until then.

link

I wonder if its the same coffee shop I heard playing David & the Giants - 10 miles high? Is it close to the LLoyds bank opposite the bus stop going towards highbury corner?

I posted on here about being drunk opening the door and yelling TUNE. You were the only one to back me up on that insistance on here. :wicked:

Great Lp , try gem you should get one for 'round about 70/80 squid

When you get it look at the front cover and try to work out which one of the guys is the lead singer !!!

Standout track apart from "someday " is "can't stand to lose her " amazing flute solo in the middle of it !!!

Good luck

The flip of the 45 isn't the other good track on the lp. I can't remember the track but it is another goodie tho' not quite as good as "You dont love me ...." I'll post up when I get home and dig the lp out. The only way to get both tracks is to get the lp.
