    TYPE 2 DIABETIS HELP

    Hi All.. Some of you may be aware that I have Type2 Diabetes, 10 years ago I had no knowledge of diabetes. Although I have a empathetic view on people with Hep B, C & HIV, also people who need help with addiction issue and problems that rise from Alcohol or Drugs which cause dependency, which it goes without saying lead on to criminal behaviour, (before I go on, when I talk about drugs, I am talking about opiates & hard Stim..

    Casualeers dance dance dance

    HI ALL... It, that is "DANCE DANCE DANCE" was issued on a PYE 12" 45 Disk in 74, why I mention this is the sound is great compared to 7" & the US Roulette copy, value if you find a copy is £3 - £10, however like Contempo 12" 45s they never turn up, when they do it probably be by a car boot'er not a Soul Dealer?? However Naff it maybe on PYE, I recommend it, come to think about it any SOUL 12" from the 1970s is worth getting n..

    Best live performance

    Hi All... It would be doing an injustice to the many groups that I have seen & those that I worked with as a Roadie, working in both sound & light, also it must be stated that as a Teenager (in the 6ts) most groups could play their instruments & sing the song, they had to if they wanted to make a record contract, also back then 3 & 4 track recording studios was normal, most records were achieved with 1 take, you woul..
  4. Hi Mick...Back in 69 I was very much into the short lived youth sub culture Boot or Bovver Boys, although I thought that in 68 I was a young MOD? spending Saturday afternoon walking down Green St, going into the Chicken Run, watching the only English team to win the World Cup, then spending the rest of Saturday wandering round the West End ending up in the Flamingo Club (not dissimilar to the Wheel, music wise, although they did tend..
  5. Hi All.. Here is a CLASSIC from 73 when records were hard to find but when you found them like this Ila Vann 45, you never parted with them, I have only had 2 copies my 1st from the Scotch man in Kings Lynn? & the copy in my collection, had to put it up because seeing it on JM auction I had to agree with every thing he said about it, also you must try and get it as it never comes up for sale, a great soul record. KTF
  6. Hi All I just posted in the record club, however it is in the old section. I forgot to close it down at the start of the year, when the new thread started, sorry about this mistake however I will have to close it as it makes no sence to use last years thread? KTF Dave K

    SOUL SOURCE RECORD CLUB 2017(The End Bit)

    HI ALL..Not posted for some time but will start with one of my fave oldies, I got my first copy of "in the twilight zone" the ASTORS in 1972 from Mick Smith after a US trip, it became a big TORCH sound but now it's a forgoton oldie which is a shame, I must say CANDY is my fave and has a great B side worth a spin.

    recently brought technics 1210 turntable

    HI,,, My first DISCO I had 2 Garrard SP25 mk2 decks, I loved them as they were Ideal for DJ'ing in a pub, this was back in 1970, the iconic 301 is a bute for REGGAE, the 401 should not be dismissed I got one at a car boot for £1, sold it for£550 nice, however the Techniques 1210 can't be beaten for the DJ in your SOUL the are reliable strong little maintenance if you follow the basic golden rules plus it will save your vinyl and yo..
  9. HI ALL. This year I have had to get another laptop, as I could not get out to go to PC World until December 22nd where I parked was in a disabled bay, I put my blue badge in the window had a look around for a bit, then I took a look at the laptops, after viewing all of them I called an assistant to help, this always takes time in PC World, I think they hide somewhere! any way the purchase took over 1hour, in the 2nd week of Jan a let..

    My UK ACTION 45 collection is now complete.

    HI to all of you who understand the capture and meaning of GOT ANY BRITISH, Over the years that I have collected UK 45s, I have only tried to collect records that are meaningful to myself, I'm not a stamp collector, or collect to sell, if I do part with records it is for trade of a 45 that I need, also this is my third collection of soul 45s, the 1st back in the 7ts, when my box of rare US soul got stolen at a All-nighter whe..

    No bootleg/pirated or illegal material

    HI MIKE....I hope the message gets through, especially to the younger brothers & Sisters on the Soul Scene, who are keen to embrace all aspects that the scene has to offer, Over the last 50 years that the Rare/Northern Soul Scene has been going, the bootlegs have been part of it, initially our naivety & lack of Knowledge meant many of us bought bootlegs as a affordable way to recapture the sound of the All-nighter that we attended on a Saturday night, however this is not the case today as many dealers who use to be 100% anti bootlegs now seem to stock them, It would be so un-soulful to allow the new people to the scene, think that these bootlegs are going to be worth investing in for the future, and indeed when records the are called 2nd press, re-pressings are misleading, I am pleased that SOULSOURCE is reiterating the Anti-Bootleg policy, SOULSOURCE IS KEEPING THE FAITH IN 2018 by being a NO BOOTLEGS 4 SALE. HAPPY CHRISTMAS KTF TO ALL MY READERS (the Ed).

    Manship - no reply to message!

    HI ALL.......As John runs a business (Manships) selling Rare vinyl, and not a collector putting items up for sale on EBay, I have found him & Manships quick to respond to all aspects of his services, unlike the hit & miss of dealing with auction/buy it now sites, with the exception of known dealers on the Northern Soul Scene such as Mick Smith at MJ Records, or Pete Smith & others (SOULSOURCE should get round to putting t..

    SOUL SOURCE RECORD CLUB 2017(The End Bit)

    HI Pete......Yes you are an original member, also a good man & Soul Brother with a empathetic attitude to our music. If you remember! when the SSRC started I put foreword the basic rules, much of the rules a reaction to how quickly Soul source would slow down if member kept on posting the same video & whose write up's were poor in content comments like ("nice one John") also I put forward the idea of once a month record ..

    My UK ACTION 45 collection is now complete.

    Hi All I have great respect for Mick as a mentor & sage, when I first met him he was DJ at the DIVE BAR in HITCHIN, he would play top rare soul and DJs at clubs like PEP at the CATS, Keith Minshal TORCH & Tony Jebb BLACKPOOL MECCA would buy top sounds off him & he discovered many classics, I remember buying Buster PERSON Pretty Woman ACTION of him at the time it was cover up as Otis Smith at the TORCH & HONYEND on SP..
