    Earl Cosby - Ooh Honey Baby

    Just DJ-ed in NYC on Saturday and dug this out to spin. Went over well!

    Earl Cosby - Ooh Honey Baby

    whatever the status.... this is one of my top "living room dancers". I love this track!

    60's Dances

    I agree 99%! The only person who I would make a case for having been better (P4P) was Henry Armstrong... and one reason was (Mods - trying not to not get too off topic) because of his phenomenal footwork! If you are interested, watch this amazing video and imagine what kind of dancer this fighter could have been!

    60's Dances

    Yup. Sugar Ray Robinson always said "if you can dance you can box, if you can box you can dance". When I was doing heavy amateur boxing, I got a lot more confident in my dancing...

    60's Dances

    If anyone wants to learn American dances from the 1960s - stop into Rooky Ricardo's in San Francisco. The owner (Dick Vivian) is not just a soul expert, but was in the scene in the US in the 60s and 70s and was (and still is) a wicked dancer. He can teach you the mash-potato, the cool jerk, the boogaloo, shingaling, etc.

    exactly. two color is with an annoying organ track and three color (better in my opinion) does not have it.

    Sue Label variations

    I was curious about Sue label variation - namely the difference between two color (orange/black) and three color (orange/white/black). This website suggests that it changed over time (3 color, and then 2 color), but was there also regional variation? (like east coast versus west coast?) I have two copies of "if you go" by Derek Martin and they are different (one is 2 color and one is 3 color). Thanks! http://www.cvinyl.com/labelguides/sue.php

    SAN Francisco

    check out this venue called "The Makeout Room"... if you look at the January event calendar, there are about 15 DJ nights in that month alone that span soul/R&B/funk/reggae/disco ... http://www.makeoutroom.com/calendar.html
