  1. Blue-eyed Soul?

    How about Stella Starr? Was she a white singer? In some ways I prefer the production on her version of Bring Him Back. More oomph! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anLB5456t9w
  2. Blue-eyed Soul?

    Anyone mentioned the lovely Paula Parfitt record on Beacon, yet? And how about Invitation by the band of Angels?
  3. The 'upfront scene' ?

    How different things are these days. I think back to the glory days of '73/'74 when new discoveries turned up in such quantity and quality, it was breathtaking. Tomangoes one week, Van Dykes and Morris Chestnut the next... I know, I know, I'm being obviou...
  4. A very wise man in 1970!
  5. I was in a junk shop in Evesham one day in 1976 and in amongst the usual Val Doonican and Tom Jones spotted just one single import on the beautiful Moonshot label. It was Doctor Good Soul by Landy. A little bit knackered but more than playable and a new one...
  6. Specials - Cant find another SATCH

    I can't think why, that intro is absolutely monstrous!
  7. Specials - Cant find another SATCH

    Curious - was this one ever booted - great record by the way...
  8. Best Intro. To Record

    This, this, this!!! The intro is transcendent, other worldly, completely unreproducible, unique and untouchable. I wonder if this was made at Sigma studios, the reverb chamber there was the stuff of legend. Similar sounds on the O'Jays Neptune stuff and man...
  9. All I know is that young America has been responsible for starting most of the world's dance crazes.....
  10. Records that never quite made it....

    Not that I've been very active on the scene since the late seventies, but from what I've heard, this track by Freddie Scott never made it... or did it? Storming record in my opinion:
  11. LP only tracks?

    Off the top of my head... Marvelettes - Your Love Can Save Me wasn't there an instrumental of Tears of a Clown played from an LP (late days of the Torch)
  12. Your Fave Motown Track.

    Can I vote for an album? It would have to be the Marvellettes - Sophisticated Soul. There is not a single duff track. Every one is sublime, in my book.
  13. Major Lance or Jackie Wilson or Edwin Starr..... ooooh..... it's a three-way dead heat for me!
  14. News: Jerry Ross R I P

    If you ever saw an unknown record with his name credited on the label, you knew it would be worth taking a chance on. Great producer who made some terrific sounds. RIP.
  15. Johnny Taylor for me since it was one of the first Northern records I ever heard, back when they were simply known as "good disco records". My mentor and bro-in-law, John Haithwaite, had realised that the A-side (Steal Away) had not been deleted (it was...
