One of the greatest northern writers has got to be Mr Van McCoy - Marke Jackson, Kenny Carlton, Vonettes, to name but a few................................

Now, I'm a little bit challenged since I dont have me rekkords to hand but seem to remember that there are still some lesser known tunes which deserve recognition, let's see if I can get a dialogue started - how about :

Teen Turbans on Loma

Jeannie Screen on Josie

Marvellos on Modern

"What Difference Does It make" Kenny Sheppard

"I can Take Care Of Myself" Gene Chandler

"I Found A Goodie" Chris Bartley

"who's Gonna Pick Up The Pieces" Chuck Jackson

"Stuck on you" Yvonne Carrol

"Nothing Worse Than Being Alone" Ad Libs

"Love You can Depend On" Brenda & Tabulations

I listened to this on Soul Club the other day, I'm sure it's got the same backing as another track. Problem is I can't think what, does anyone know what the other track is, please?

Got to be Mark Jackson "I'll Never Forget You" for me, as far Mr. McCoy is concerned.
