    John Siret reacted to chalky in ' A youth culture left in the hands of old men'   
    Watch this on silence and I wouldn’t have believed they were dancing to Epitome of Sound, the guy in the middle especially.
    Don’t get me wrong they got the moves but they aren’t dancing, just doing tricks.  There used to be a time and a place to do the spins and tricks in a record but now it is all the way through and totally out of rhythm to the record in question. 
    I know its a dance comp but give me a proper dancer with good footwork who does the tricks and spins in the breaks and appropriate places or preferably just one with classy footwork  
    As I said great at the tricks as are a lot but they ain ‘t dancing anymore.

    Well done for putting the time in on this thread - your contribution has been significant. Having said that, I don’t think you get it. 
    Your post suggesting that the ovo thing is absolutely crazy is way of piste. Not least because by default you are supporting the notion that any tom, dick and Harry could pitch up and play a load of boots, or even cd’s. Or even just pitch up with s laptop and play YouTube content. 
    Sorry, if I’ve misunderstood you, but if I haven’t then with all due respect I think you are talking the language of Bolloxexis.

    Been biting my tongue too long ...  Peggy March is as bad a pop tune today as it was when I first heard it 37 years ago , thought it was shite then and think it's shite now ... sorry if that offends the old-timers but it's just my opinion ... glad I started my journey "on the scene" just as the backlash against this purile lazy pop drivel started and the 'new guard' started digging a bit deeper for the real thing ...

    Re, people slagging newcomers tastes Its just passion really combined with frustration. I think for a lot of us that started on the scene in the 8ts, we came into the scene at a time when a lot of the, ahem, less soulful sounds had been dropped from playlists at nighters. So we were spared the like of peggy march, Holly st james ect. We saw that as progress. To have the often less than knowledgable returnees turn oldies nighters playlistss into something akin to wigan, circa, 77, was never going to go down well with me.

    John Siret reacted to WoodButcher in my Northern Soul Moan   
    Let's be honest , at most of the Mickey Mouse oldies nostalgia nights that blight the calendar these days you can regularly see twenty people on the floor looking as though they are all listening/dancing to twenty different tunes , most concentrating hard to remember the Norvern Soul steps that they saw on YT the night before , regardless of the actual tempo  , very few seem to actually be 'feeling' the tune or reacting in anyway emotionally towards it ... thankfully I avoid these nights nowadays and stick to the proper nighters that feed my needs , i.e. something that makes my ears prick up and start asking " what was that that was just spun ... ?"

    Seriously comments like this make me glad I now only go out around 10 times a year  in the late 70, s and 80's we kept the scene alive with the hope new sounds would be accepted by the masses .but we were wrong  the narrow mindedness of attitudes like this have killed the best underground music scene

    John Siret reacted to stockholmsoulfox in Writing on record labels   
    I see no real issue with artist/group autographs from the time of original release. They were often given away at live gigs and as promotional copies and I think add providence.
    I really don’t like contemporary signatures from recent weekenders or live performances from artists in their late 60s/70s. Much better to get the sleeve signed! The Frank Wilson signature is horrific and nothing short of criminal.

    John Siret reacted to floyd in Most Accurate Vinyl Graders Us Or Uk Sellers?   
    Hi i agree
    im a collector not a dj so condition is eveything, especially when your spending hundreds of pounds on a record
    ive bought quite a few so called EX condition records of  UK sellers which play ok but visualy vg+ at best
    to me an EX or above disc should be flawless like m- but played regulary and well looked after , no marks scratches , cloudy vinyl ect
    some sellers make you feel guilty for complaining with the old chestnut , but its 40 years old ect, yes it may be 40 years old but that doesnt make a vg disc an ex+ one or they come out with its play graded but to a collector the visual grading is just as important
    i apprecciate that some records are that rare that sometimes you have to settle for a lesser grade or risk never owning a copy
    but if the dealer has been honest and said the disc is only in vg condition then its the up to you to decide if you can live with that
    there is nothing worse than buying a so called EX record only to open the package and find its vg+ at best and just to rub salt in the wounds you have to pay out of your own pockect for return signed for postage

    John Siret reacted to chalky in Betty Boo-Spellbound   
    So by the same token you can’t play any release on a 45 released 30/40 years after its original recording date?  
    It is the original release in a 45, all dues paid.  
    Some need to take their heads out of their arses before they disappear up it completely.
    they make the rules up as they go along half of em, so long as it suits them

    John Siret reacted to chalky in Possibly THE Rarest Soul 45?   
    Most talked about single, amongst who? A small circle of collectors in the grand scheme of things, that’s who. To the vast majority I doubt they even care if they see this in a glass case at Motown.  
    Most would be more interested in Michael Jacksons glove although I’m not sure what that has to do with Motown as by the time he was wearing it he’d left!  
    I would imagine the buliding, the studio, where and how the music was made is of more interest to most.
    The hype from the very beginning surrounding this has been ridiculous.

    John Siret reacted to Benji in How the hell is this not massive??   
    In my opinion pretty obvious why it isn't massive. There's no unique feature in it. Over the years many, many rather common records went massive almost over night. Why? Because they had a unique feature in it that made them stand out. Be it in the rhythm or the melody or the vocals.
    That Lou Rawls song is nice, infact very nice. But to make it pictorial, it's a fish among many other fishes in a sea of good tunes. It doesn't stand out.

    John Siret reacted to dave pinch in sam smith- plastic syntho soul anyone?   
    I kinda gave up listening  to any new release stuff about 10 years ago due to lack of quality real instruments and there were always raps involved somewhere along the way..and some always sounded retro. Maybe I should find the time to listen some more. My bad... But I'm still buying discovering loads of late 60s 70s and onwards stuff I've never heard before
  23. Thanks

    John Siret reacted to Benji in Rubin you've been away kapp demo   
    It's "on here". At least spare a few seconds for proper grammar.
    Beside that I'm serious. You open thread after thread asking for prices, it's like 50% of the Look At Your Box threads come from you asking for prices.
    Why not do your homework and do your research yourself? It's not hard, there's Soul Source, Discogs, Popsike, CollectorsFrenzy, Facebook. They all can give pretty accurate and up to date values. You got a pretty lazy attitude mate.
    I don't know why folks on here still fall for you and give you detailed informations and price indications. I won't
