Keith Rylatt (who was one of the contributors to the original fanzine) has just finished a book on Detroit's soul and R&B scene called Groovesville USA. It's being edited and designed at the moment and should be out before the end of the year.

I can't say too much about it at the moment but I'll keep everybody up to speed on here.

Suerly this deserves a re-press? I lost mine years ago and ask Rod about this about the same time he re-produced 1 - 4 of Voices.

If I recall there was no pricing in it, just lots of great label listings and photos

You've just burst a memory there - I ran a small record shop when I left school, before Hott Waxx Records, and used to be sent a similar thing from the States but without the scans if I remember correctly - what would that have been?

I still have my copy,somewhere ? If i remember correctly Bob Foster from North Wales was instrumental in providing information and / or assisting with this publication.

It was the the holy grail for most of these tunes on this bible for a lot of us North Wales kids at the time.
