Thanks for that Billy. I will check for the CD.

Found it a little annoying the first listen, played it again - still much the same.

Started to write an honest opinion - One that I didn't think much of.

Played it another three times loud with headphones while I wrote - and what do you know....

Thanks again Billy.

Love this album, Tim Brown told me he introduced it to Richard Searling, by the way what does it fetch these days?...Has anyone got the other Michael Orr LP (sorry name escapes me) but there is a brilliant moody soulful song on with a female vocalist.....maybe called love songs (the LP) mainly gospel orientated in a 70's vein.

Cheers pete, always a little unsure about the prices of LP's, suppose one day there will be a guide to destroy all my future bargain buys :thumbsup:

Hi Brett,

Although most of the Kay Dee stuff comes out on 7" - I've only seen it as a 12" Pre release. I've not got one but Fryer over on Funk 45 Forums got one - and he said its been pressed up very loud - I guess thats the man Kenny Dope.

Spread Love - without the silly spoken beginning :thumbsup:

My last post was a bit hard to understand, here it is again in Layman's terms...

The Spread Love LP on ebay reached $500 - reserve not met. Haven't a clue what the 7" is worth... James Trouble's playing it so I'd guess quite a lot :thumbsup:

My fault Billy (reading post..but not taking it in !), "Here I Go" is the track off the LP that i like, that never got released (did it?) as a 45'.

No, only available on the LP I posted earler, plus been on a couple of CDs. "Spread Love" has been on about 3 funk (funk? :D ) and a couple of soul CDs. It came out on Sunstart 7" and "Spread love" LP in 1976, just been reissued on that label mentioned earlier and I think it was on one of the Keb Darge Soul Spectrum LPs from about 5 (?) years ago.

How's that for useless info? :D I'm not usually this knowlegable but have just been digging :thumbsup: ....besides it's probably all wrong :yes:

There are a few more nice tracks on the LP - one in particular is a lovely ballad called "Feelings". I'm sure I've got an MP3 on here somewhere.....

Billy :D

"Feelings"

If you haven't heard it before it, the first few listens will sound just like him (did for me anyway). The vocalist's name is Bernadine Mitchell. Lovely record, just goes on a bit. I faded it out at 2:30, think it runs to about 6:00.

I've got Johnnie Taylor doing a version of "Here I Go (Through These Changes again)" on the "B" side of "Your Love Is Rated X" on a Uk CBS 45.

This must be the same tune as the writers are M.Orr/C.Harris.

Shouldn't cost anymore than £5.

WHATS THE POINT OF RE_ISSUING SOMETHING THAT WAS RE_ISSUED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO? CAN THEY NOT FIND SOMETHING ORIGINAL TO PUT OUT? MAYBE SOMETHINGS THATS A BIT RARE? IS THAT NOT THE POINT OF RE_ISSUES? BET THERES A KENNY DOPE 'RE-EDIT' ON IT.. GENIUS.

You're naive if you think this issue is aimed at the Northern Soul scene. There is a wave of younger Soul fans - who are very open to quality music. It's a positive step forward and people like Kenny Dope should be applauded for taking the music forward.

I am not naive simon-I have actually met kenny dope and michael orr and know the label (counterpoint) who released the reissue a couple of years ago and have had the original for many years.My point was - why did Kenny Dope chose to re-issue a record without checking Amazon or google for that matter? The only positive thing is that Kenny Dope makes a couple of grand from the record and michael orr is still broke, whats to be applauded about that? Taking the music forward by reissing a very available track? Younger soul fans should know the real deal-not by buying records that have the 'Kenny dope seal of approval' , Berry Gordy was putting out a lot of better records than kenny dope! Younger soul fans , should maybe start at the basics,no?
