  2. Larry Hale---Once Unusual copy

    That brings back memories. Had one just like it in the 70's, long since gone. Nice one.
  3. So pleased I held on to my original copy of this

    Not the best quality photo but an original yellow and green copy:
  4. Modus' Motown Extravaganza!

    Motown special to celebrate the launch of Keith Rylatt's new book 'Hitsville! The Birth of Tamla Motown'. Saturday 12 November 2016 at The Old Kings Head, Days Lane, Belper, Derbyshire from 7.30 until 12.00. Admission £4.00 Please click on link for full details Modus Motown Special.pdf
  5. Keith Rylatt’s “Hitsville! The Birth of Tamla Motown” is the debut title from the publishing arm of Modus The House of Soul. This fascinating story of the Tamla Motown Appreciation Society’s pivotal role in establishing the Motown Sound in Britain, is lavishly illustrated over 192 pages with unique photos and rare memorabilia. A carrier bag of photos and mementoes from the early 60s was the starting point for this in-depth history of the birth of Tamla Motown. Hidden away for nearly fifty years, they belonged to Clive Stone, who with fellow R&B fan Dave Godin, set out to bring the Motown Sound to the attention of Britain’s teenagers. Encouraged by Motown’s Berry Gordy, Dave ran the influential Tamla Motown Appreciation Society from his suburban Kent bedroom, organising informal meet-and-greets with the stars for members, and keeping them up-to-date on Motown news. Keith Rylatt chronicles the story from Stevie Wonder’s fleeting visit in 1963 through to the Four Tops’ sell-out show at London’s Saville Theatre three years later – credited as being the point when the Motown Sound finally entered Britain’s pop mainstream. Keith Rylatt said: This is the untold story of the beginnings of Motown in Britain. Clive Stone’s widow came across a long lost box in her attic in Sussex and there were these brilliant photos inside. There was a story waiting to climb out of the box. Funnily enough there’s been any number of stories written about Motown, but they’re all about America. Not much has been documented about the British side of the scene. Although living on a tiny island, the British fans were really knowledgeable and appreciative of Motown, possibly more so than in its Home Country . Beautifully presented in full colour, the book includes previously unpublished photographs taken by Clive Stone and other TMAS members, rare memorabilia and many pages from the Society’s highly collectable magazine Hitsville USA. 'Hitsville! The Birth of Tamla Motown' goes on sale at the Modus offices in Belper on Saturday 12 November 2016 from 11.00 am. The photographs will be on display and Keith will be available later in the day to sign copies of the book. Modus are also holding a 'Motown Special' dance to celebrate the launch at The Old Kings Head, Days Lane, Belper from 7.30 pm. More details can be found elsewhere in the events section.

    One thing about being from round our way is you'll always be a 'youth'! Happy birthday to one of the best.
  7. Sad News Phil Salt ( SALTY ) R.I.P

    Sad news indeed. Great lad. R.I.P.
  8. Just out of interest, the copy that Modus have for sale came out of Prince Buster's shop on Orange Street, Kingston JA in the early 90's. I got a few Northern things out of there: Paul Sindab on Hype (I'm Uptight, unfortunately!), a Volumes on Inferno, Anthon...

    I believe this was one of the initial batch of acetates of this title that Simon sent over.
  11. Nick Stevenson R.I.P

    Dreadful news. I didn't see a lot of Nick but always enjoyed a good natter and a fair few laughs whenever we bumped into each other in Belper. As others have said - great knowledge and relentless enthusiasm for new records. Sincere condolences to the family a...
