  1. 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.
  2. 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...
  3. Blue-eyed Soul?

    A little bit tongue in cheek, but you could make a valid argument that ironically, the greatest and most iconic classic records of the scene were made by white singers: 1. Can’t help loving you - Paul Anka - can you actually get more “northern” than this...
  4. Blue-eyed Soul?

    Stemmons Express? Always wondered about that one....
  5. Wade in the water is a very old plantation work song which apparently offered advice to runaway slaves how they might avoid capture by bloodhounds; you've got to wade in the water....
  6. Help please, someone... anyone? My daughters wedding is this Friday 2nd June and I have to find a copy of the instrumental to Ain't no mountain high enough (Diana Ross) to play at the reception. I did find one on YouTube but ....oh the quality! Please ...
  7. Sad news. Francis Terry Thomas- RIP

    Oh bollocks! Bloody hell! Lost for words. Can't believe it. Such a smashing guy. RIP Soul Man.
  8. Talking about crazy instrumentals, did I imagine this, or did I once hear something played out by "Mike the Swinging Monk" (or words to that effect)! A British release if I recall.... Scraping a very deep dark barrel full of odd memories...
  9. Yes, yes, oh yes! Always loved this one. So powerful, so under-rated. The other side is a killer-diller too, of course.

    I can't stand cow's milk anyway!
  11. Dean Parrish on a commercial

    Not to be a whistle blower but this article strikes me as odd. In it they are claiming that the music is an original composition. I think I'd be onto lawyers if I had a stake in this ... http://tvadvertsongs.com/arla-organic-farm-milk-the-deal/
  12. Dean Parrish on a commercial

    It's funny isn't? this would have been cause for great excitement a few years ago. Now it's "Ho hum... now there's yet another advertiser trying to borrow some cool...."
  13. Saw Beauty and the Beast at the local Roxy yesterday. In amongst the ads before the film commenced was a rather forgettable promo for milk (I think) that featured a very familiar strings and flute led riff with a slightly classical feel. Just as my addled b...
  14. Best intro?

    The Superlatives only needed three notes to inspire dancers to run, leap, dive onto the floor....
  15. Got me thinking…biggest regret

    Selling all my British demos in 1981 and using the money to buy a three piece suite ranks pretty high up there....
