  2. The Memphis Flyer website has just added a new Eddie Floyd feature. Titled Knock On Wood! Eddie Floyd on Music, Life, and His New Book - Eddie Floyd and the power of positive thinking ' written by Alex Greene The article is made up of quite a lengthy article/interview, taking in Eddie's career and his upcoming book. Knock! Knock! Knock! on Wood: My Life in Soul. Along with images and such, A couple of clips... Eddie Floyd's attitude is contagious. After speaking with him for over an hour, what stuck with me most was the laughter. It's a beautiful thing, these little regional markets where you can have a hit, like the Carolina beach scene you write about, or Jamaica. Or the UK, where so many songs have taken on a new life. Oh yeah. And Northern Soul in England. They'll listen right away. And I know all the fields. That's the way I write, too. Sometimes I'll be thinking about them also. Definitely Northern Soul. You can do different styles, if you have an idea. 'Cause they're open-minded there! If it's got a groove, they'll get into it. You can introduce some new things to 'em, so they'll be eager for new grooves. It's an amazing area.

  9. now on iplayer Everything - The Real Thing Story The Real Thing were four working-class boys from one of Liverpool’s toughest neighbourhoods, who became Britain’s most enduring soul and funk act ever. With a string of hits, they dominated the international charts throughout the 1970s with iconic songs like You to Me Are Everything, Can’t Get By Without You and Can You Feel the Force. But the group’s meteoric success was also tempered with personal tragedy, drug addiction and racial prejudice. They were – and still are – The Real Thing – and this is their incredible true story https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000lj5v/everything-the-real-thing-story

The song, "Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)," was written and performed by Wilson, and set a record in 2009 as the most expensive Motown vinyl ever sold when a Leicestershire, UK-based record dealer organized the sale to an anonymous buyer for £25,742. The album, which remains the tenth most expensive vinyl record ever sold, was never released in the U.S. The song is being introduced to the American public for the first time in Uncle Nearest's newest commercial titled "Do I Love You." Uncle Nearest CEO and founder Fawn Weaver is the daughter of Wilson.

It is believed that one of those two vinyls are in the private collection of Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, while the other landed at a famous English Northern soul nightclub in Wigan, England, where the song became a cult classic in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Due to its enormous popularity, the album was officially released in the UK in 1979.
