  1. Anyone have info on where these came from ? Seen loads of great UK demo's like this - all with same writing for date and library file no. Possibly another forces radio station - Cyprus ? All have been mint probably unplayed when first hit our shores. If the no. 16003 is to go by, they must have had thousands. (saw a SS Heatwave once in the 2xxx range). Cheers................ Tom.

  4. Someone has posted up both trax on YouTube now.......................
  5. Having arrived home Sunday morning with my 100 Club 40th Anniversary 45, I was eager to listen to its B side. [The A side, Carolyn Crawford, having already been played by Ady on the night.] Well, what can I say, I was totally gob-smacked by how awesome it was. Never having heard this before (not sure if anyone had already?) I couldn't stop playing it. Mickey is better known for his writing, arranging and A&R work, than his voice isn't he ? Ady quotes 1968 and the interweb states him and Kim left Motown in 1967 for MGM. So would this and Carolyn have been released on the MGM label then ? I very much hope Ady has some more stuff like this to play / release over the coming months. Cheers.................... Tom. (Banbury)
  6. Nick Topsy-Turvey's "No Boundaries" room will go from strength to strength. The ability to play and hear a plethora of great music is so refreshing. He has some great guest DJ's lined up for us. Well done to Eddie and Mick for great sets last time. I'm sure they will be re-appearing very soon. Cheers.............. Tom.

  8. another update. still looking for the ones listed thanks.
  9. A voice you recognise instantly and never forget. Just listen to the two gems below and two of my faves........................... Cheers.................. Tom.
  10. I love it and will always get on the dance floor to it. Pestered the Willinghams quite a few times @ Prestatyn top-room rare soul and Blackpool Soul Fest Niter. We had Greety @ our little Banbury Soul Club do's a few years ago and I couldn't wait to ask him to play it - no empty dance floor here. Really pleased Ted has told me he has one also - I can pester him now to play it ! (although he may have moved it on with no dance floor action ? LOL) Cheers................... Tom.
  11. Too many "do's" on every Fri & Sat night - scene is swamped with Events. More DJ's or budding DJ's than paying punters. Depending on your music tastes - four peeps can get in a taxi to a local do and drink all night. If you need bespoke music then you will prob be prepared to travel to "where it's at". I'm not adding anything new here - this is what I have read here on SS for the past decade really. And seen it with my own eyes. Maybe needs a clear out of multiple events and back to a handful of them at the weekend ? Cheers..................... Tom.
  12. Such a friendly event this one with a great crowd always. This is the sort of place it all started at - give them your support. Banbury massive will be there. Cheers............ Tom.
  13. Mick Smith & Pete Smith could tell you all about UK issues and demo's never released. But 45's do turn up years later. Look @ Darrell Banks silver top London - bet a few peeps "wet their pants" on seeing that ! Cheers................... Tom.
  14. Whole load of stories also for Geri Hall on UK SUE. Has never shown up although got an allocated release in the range. T.
  15. Soul Joe Clements - Plexium Demo for auction on ebay now. (small silver "A" on label - compared to issues) (bit like Oriole Motown ones). (nothing else on label to emphasize a demo copy) T.
