    Unbelievable

    I’m with you on this. I gave most of my 45s away to friends when I stopped playing them and listened to digital recordings. I don’t like the blatant profiteering from some so called ‘bastions of Northern Soul’. If they love the scene so much, why do they want to rip their fellow enthusiasts off?
  2. We used to go to a nighter called the Blue Moon in Farnborough, Hants. I went in ‘69 and it had been going for a couple of years at least. They played all soul tracks, mainly imports and most would be classed as Northern. My fave they used to play at the time was O’Kaysions, Girl Watcher. The DJ had less than 100 records as they were so hard to get. It was a den of iniquity and got raided many times. The manager even brandished a shotgun when idiots tried to force their way in. There was a similar place in Southampton called the Marina, I only went once and can’t remember a thing! Good old days.

    Help

    Thanks guys, don't like it myself. Last time I couldn't find a reference to a record it sold for nearly £500 (Differences - 5 Minutes), so worth a check. Chris

    Rudy Love: UK Releases

    A friend of mine has the Brother Tyrone Davis album and we've tried to find out for years who it was (knowing it wasn't the man himself). I've also got the Rudy Love single 'This Song Is For You', a beautiful recording but would never have put the two together. Thanks so much for resolving this mystery which has driven me mad. As a matter of interest, what would the album be worth? Chris

    Acetate

    I've got a Chuck Jackson acetate of Beg Me. It's in pretty poor condition but if anyone collects them let me know, needs a good home.

    Dust My Broom Hmv Demo

    I really don't want to sell them, I'd like to give them to a teenager or someone just getting into the scene. I have sold a few decent originals but in all honesty the scene was (and is) about the love of the music and I don't want to make a killing from it. I've probably given away a couple of grand's worth, over 300 so far and I've got at least 1000 buried away I've not gone through yet. I know the ones I've given away will not be sold but cherished and that makes it worthwhile. Pressings I've got are things like Otis Smith, Butch Baker, Don Thomas, The Larks, etc, mostly Soul Bowl stuff from the eighties.
  15. Just listed UK HMV demo on Ebay, no idea how much it's worth. I think the picture attached of Ike just about sums him up, used to beat Tina black & blue. Mind you I probably would after the crap she put out in the 90s! Have loads in the loft stuck there for over 20 years and just want them to go to good homes and be appreciated. Got plenty of pressings I might give away to any genuine new young people on the scene who want some vinyl 7s.
