  1. haven't played this in a while so pulled it out to play, still sound fresh.......
  2. Saw them at the Fiesta Club (Sheffield) back in the 70s and loads of other great Acts, That will do for me , They were fabulous too, fond memories of the bus trips over to the Sheffield Fiesta Club, anyone else go?
  3. Here is one of my spins from back in 2014 still love it, still play it, one of those tunes that gets under your skin
  4. Hi Twoshoes Reminds me in places of "Crazy" Or "You got the Love"
  5. Cheers Soulstrutter, Horses for Coursers this Record Collecting Game, No offence Taken by the way, I only buy and play what i like, and the original is a Classic which i purchased as a new release Back in the Day and has been covered by lots of Bands over the years, it has to be said that the "original version" is Not Always the best version But not in this case, Thanks for your Comments..............Rick
  6. I Mentioned this version because i thought people might be interested( but seems i was Wrong,) Yes there are different versions about and i have what i consider the best of what's available in my collection, some versions i like some versions i don't so didn't buy those, i liked this version enough to buy it, after all that is what record collecting is all about. The idea was to give people the chance to listen to it themselves and make their own mind up as to whether they liked it or not, after all nobody is twisting their arm up their back to purchase it, just wanted to share, sorry if i did something wrong, Rick
  7. Ever green song Funky Nassau gets a release from COCOTONES and its Rather Good (Imho). Mine arrived this morning. Not on YouTube as yet but you can Hear a Sound Bite at JUNO Who describes it as a RE-Issue ? Ltd to 200 copies so won't be around for long i suspect. Its on the Cocotone Record Label (Made in Saint Marie -Madagascar)so if you like your soul on the more Funky Side This may well be for you too, Your Thoughts
  8. This one had big spins in the 80s and the Album it came from has just been re-released 'Dragon King' by Osama Kitajima, It came out on an impossible to find 45 and what a fabulous 2 Stepper it is (if you like this sort of thing.When Phil Perrys name is included in the writer credits you know it's gonna be good,Play It, love it, and Enjoy...... Rick
  9. Great Tune (Sounds Expensive but not) Harold Burrage... Nice One! Another example of Great won't burn a Hole on your Pocket
  10. Put this in here as i love the sentiment, love the beat, and it makes you think, Apologies if in wrong place.....Rick
  11. WOW! Nice One, Thank you so much for that, Proves that it DID get a release and out there on ALL Formats, For Me their best release, Cheers Shufflin.
  12. Nice little story about how i came to own a copy of this record (Rainbow People) Which i put up on here a while ago on another thread. I was DJ ing at a Soul Nite in Lincoln (74\75) and and a couple of lads came up to me during my set and said we have a Record we think you might like, Turned out their mum worked in a second hand book shop in Lincoln and had some records come in and they fished this out being on a PYE Double Sided Acetate. I played it on the turn tables listening to it on Headphones and yes, fell in love with it, and said yes i'll take it (Can't remember how much probably 5 or 8 Quid) they asked me would i play it in my set which i did and got a good reaction to it for an unknown at the time. I dropped it at the next Cleethorpes Pier All Niter and the rest was history as they say. As a footnote to that i played this at a Soul Nite in the back room of a Scunthorpe Pub In The 80s (The Open Hearth i think) And when playing announced it as Quite A Rarity and a young Bar Maid Dashed up to the Decks and said Me and my Boy Friends got this (found at a car boot sale) but it looks different to your copy, I asked if they wanted to sell it and got a Big Loud NO, turns out they weren't into Northern soul just liked collecting Records, one regret was didn't ask if it was a demo or issue, (Never seen an Issue) anyone on here seen one?
  13. Bright and beautiful Friday Morning and just got back in from a nice short walk so if you get the chance you might like to do the same, Happy New Year Folks........Rick
  14. My My My. ***2001 Black essence*** (from '74 if my memory serves me correctly) One THEE Best cross over soul records Ever and Rod Nearly took the roof off with it. Rick
  15. As you say Dave "Happy Days" Was a lovely venue and if i say so myself thought the Music played there was Excellent (as Mr. Burns would say) Only Downer was the Bloody Dance Floor that was put together like a large Jig Saw Puzzle, Tripped on it many a times when i Danced on it Cheers, Rick.
