  4. With the lockdown, I am listening to quite a lot of soul on the radio. Heard a track on the Marc Collins show on Solar Radio at the weekend Sam Dees -Funny, said it was unreleased dated from around 1971 recorded when at Chess. The recording was from an acetate, the original version apparently is short just over 2.30, but the version played had been extended. Marc hinted that it would make a great release on a 7 inch and I would agree, what do others think? The show is on Mixcloud , the track is played after Starguard Which Way is Up around 1 hour 8 Minutes -
  5. I usually support Record Store Day, this year's event is on the 18th April,soul releases include the following: Timeless Legend Synchronized LP on Expansion. Willie Tee Teasing you Again (45 single on Gatur). Robert Parker I caught you in a lie (45 on Nola). Roy Redmond Ain't That Terrible (45 on Harlem Shuffle). Rare Pleasure Let Me Down Easy (45 on South Street Disco). Johnnuy Pate Shaft in Africa 2 x 45 on Dynamite Cuts. Appears to be mainly resissues, personally I would rather see new releases/unreleased material or previously download only released on v

  7. This is a good thread and bugging the old grey cells. I seem to recall an article in Black Echoes regarding the first disco 12 inch coming out, this was sometime in 1976, the title of the 12 Inch was something like Get Off Your A** and dance. There is Get off your Aahh and Dance by Foxy but I didnt think that was the group. The first 12 inch I bought was from Jumbo Records in Leeds - Undisputed Truth You + Me = Love the same year, for between 70 and 90 pence. Still got it today.

See a pevious discussion, although some of the shops mentioned may now have closed - https://www.soul-source.co.uk/forums/topic/326543-new-york-crate-digging Also see this link about record shops in New York - https://foursquare.com/top-places/new-york-city/best-places-record-shops I tend to go to East Village - A1 Records and Good Records, nearby is the 12th Street Ale House, good selection of beers, happy hour etc. Also endorse members comments re the flea markets. Happy digging, be useful to hear how you go and if you managed to find any bargains.
  11. I first started collecting soul records in 1975, buying new releases and Northern from Jumbo Records, Virgin in Leeds, and the weekly fix of the list from Soulbowl coming through the letterbox. My most expensive purchases at this time were £15 for Matt Lucas Baby You Better Go Go, bought in the Precinct Pub, Leeds, getting through to Soulbowl very nervous and asking for Shane Martin I Need You listed at £20, it had already gone so bought the Jewels We Got Togetherness for £15. Both buys in 1977, and a lot of money at the time, as my salary was £25 a week. A year later I got into jazz funk and
  12. My copy arrived from Anglo American in today’s post, it was worth the wait
  13. Agree with all the above comments, although the two record shops on Hanway Street have gone. If you go up to Camden, also consider going a bit further on the Northern Line to Alans Records at East Finchley - http://alansrecords.com/page2.html Owner is very friendly, lots of soul 45's at reasonable prices. One other option , tube to Notting Hill and Music and Video Exchange 40 Notting Hill Gate, soul section is upstairs. Good luck
