  1. Chicago, the Windy City. Another city with its own sound. Back in the Sixties you could spot which city records were made in by the sound. The writing, production, and arrangements, and of course the musicians, all contributed to that sound. Of course it was partly because the same people in each city tended to play on records for lots of labels, and the same guys in each city owned lots of little independent labels as well. So this book is about that distinctive Chicago sound. For many years the dominate group of labels in Chicago were those owned by the Chess Brothers. From early Blues through R & B, to the heyday of the labels in the Sixties. But as with all the other cities, whilst Chess / Cadet / Argo were the main players, there were lots of other, equally as good, labels, and Okeh ran them a close second, producing some wonderful Soul music. Orders taken now: £17.00 for each book, with free postage in the UK PM me to get Payment details. @Dave Rimmer The book is also available on Amazon UK, Amazon US, and all the other European sites. It's still cheaper for UK buyers to buy from me because Amazon will charge you £2.99 postage, and I'm selling at a pound less than Amazon, but for my European, and American friends it will be cheaper to buy from Amazon. And of course at Venues all over the UK.

    I’ve never been to a Mowtown night. Is it where they make lawnmowers?

    If you read what Steve Sayles posted on Facebook, you’ve read most of the book before.

    News: Botanica Rare Soul at The New York Times

    It’s a great night, and a fantastic achievement by Matt to have been doing it weekly for 23 years. He kindly let me interrupt proceedings and do a guest spot about three years ago. Loved it.

    Artist or group beginning with the letter K

    Thanks guys.
  9. A bit of an odd question I know, but I’m working on collating artist, or group, discographies from Philadelphia. And I cannot for the life of me find anyone whose surname starts with the letter K. Any help appreciated guys.

    Record insurance

    I've looked at the Newmoon website and their policy on vinyl insurance and they say quite specifically that the policy is not designed for DJs.

    Dave Rimmer at Cleethorpes

    I’ve been trying to think what to say in response for a couple of days now lol. So, thank you. I’m glad you enjoy my DJ spots. I’m always grateful there are still people around by the time I get on at some venues. I’m also highly honoured to be one of the resident DJs at Cleethorpes, long may it continue.

    How far would you travel..

    As I'm off to DJ in Australia later this year, that works out at 9,991 miles each way. It will push me over the 30,000 miles travelled this year to DJ.
  14. News/Article/Feature Highlight: The new book is available now. The Soulful Kinda Music Guide To New York Soul. View full article
  15. New York, from the swooping sounds of Doo Wop, and the grittier sounds of R & B, the Big Apple had it all. And as the 1960's dawned a certain style was developing in New York. Some of the best songwriters and arrangers in the world lived and worked in the city. This coupled with some truly gifted singers created what has become known as the Big City Soul Sound. Suave, sophisticated and Soulful, it's a style that is still revered today by all aficionado’s of quality Soul music. The big players in the city were the Atlantic / Atco group, closely followed by the Scepter / Wand group. There were also the smaller labels, and the artists that didn't make more than one record. The book pulls it all together in a feast of discographical information. 316 pages of detailed discographical information. Orders taken now: £17.00 for each book, with free postage in the UK PM me for payment details etc. The book is also available on Amazon UK, Amazon US, and all the other European sites. It's still cheaper for UK buyers to buy from me because Amazon will charge you £2.99 postage, and I'm selling at a pound less than Amazon, but for my European, and American friends it will be cheaper to buy from Amazon. And of course at Venues all over the UK.
