    Thanks Chalky! The Americans don't seem to be very bothered about trivia as we are, I live near a tourist attraction, Leeds castle and my local, the White Horsre gets its fair share of overseas tourists - anyhow, I got talking to two white guys, in their early 60s and from Chicago and said they were into Soul, so I got pretty excited. When I asked who their favourite artists was.....................Bruce Springsteen

    I'm trying to wrap up a book on Jerry Murray and would like to get it out before the end of the year. It's been on my back burner for many years. I have some questions that I can't get answered in the US even by the few folk who really knew him, e.g. Sammy Kaplan and Bernie Hayes. So here goes - Was he Tyrone Davis' cousin? Was he born in Greenville MS? He died in a car accident in Mississippi in the mid 70s but exactly where and when? As a child was he raised in St Louis or Chicago? A guy called Larry Payton worked with him in the early 60s, Payton had Larry O records, who was this guy? Art Morton owned the Soulville record store in Chicago, what street was it on? Why did `Oolya-Coo` / `Bacardi` ABC / Paramount #10787 get to the eleventh hout then got pulled? Finally, who was Joe Berry, the last release on Jerry O records? Is he the same guy as on Ron's? Or is it Jerry O with J E R R Y O simply remixed? I'd really appreciate any help at all! Thanks.

    Barry Tasker, who was the top Soul guy in Manchester at the time (and probably still so!) gave me this T shirt over 20 years ago. It's been proudly worn on three continents! The membership card must be '71 or '72 as I was born in Oct '50.

    Thanks John, I had looked at this previously but it doesn't go back further than 489. I specifically want 467. I'm trying to do the impossible - a complete Jerry O story. Boo-Ga-Loo #467, `Cole Slaw`, an instrumental by Milton Jefferson is documented in various places. It's a record that I have never seen or heard and am very dubious about. In 1957 RCA issued a 45 by Hilton Jefferson, `Cole Slaw` the B side to `The Hour Of Parting`, it was an instrumental version of the original by Frank Culley on Atlantic. It is of course possible that Sammy Kaplan resurrected and re-issued the side but I very much doubt it and so for me #467 remains an unfilled gap. Cheers Keith
