    Northern Soul, since I was about 12 years old & also drifted into reggae during the 1980s.
    I have a relatively small Northern Soul collection, although it's been growing over recent years.
    Anything to do with 1990's Bally/Williams Pinball Machines, unfortunately they take up a lot of space so I've been forced to only keep two - Theatre of Magic and Twilight Zone.
    I'm also a Naim Audio addict
    I have a wife and two children.

  1. There's an audio interview with Phil on the BBC Radio 5 live website and he was on Good Morning Britain with Kim this morning. It doesn't make for easy watching.
  2. PM'd you
  3. Mr Holland's Opus It's a wonderful life Schindler's List This is England Spartacus
  4. Jeez, I feel quite aroused after reading through all those flowery descriptions
  5. I can recommend the CD below, http://acerecords.co.uk/some-kinda-magic-the-songs-of-jerry-ross OK, it's not all Northern, or soul, but there's some great stuff on it. The other songwriter series CDs on Ace are excellent too. Hopefully there'll be a Randazzo/Pike/Hart compilation soon...
  6. Nice, Do you use the 45 speed adapter, or is it LP's only on that beauty?
  7. Nice to see the Linn Basik record player - I see far too much rare and collectible vinyl being played on 'toy' turntables these days.
  8. Yep, My introduction to Northern Soul was in 1975 at the age of 12, via the Pye Great Disco Demands LP. Frankie and the Classicals was my favourite track on that album, I used to play it over and over again.
  9. I guess because, A: It's a genuinely great 'iconic' 45 B: It's always in great demand, most of us older collectors have a copy, but the newcomers have yet to bag one. I agree that it's become very expensive, but as in all areas of collecting, the real quality stuff always retains it's status. As ever, values are a combination of desirability, condition and rarity. Desirability is the key with this methinks.
  10. I think Fascinating Girl is a brilliant record, to me it's one of those records where the individual elements are not exactly polished performances, but when all mixed together, you end up with a bit of musical magic. I see the George Pepp 45 in much the same way.
  11. This one gets my vote, used to be guaranteed to get me and the other clappers on their feet.
  12. Correct, that would've been the venue name at the time.
  13. I was there that night. If I remember correctly, the live appearance was at the Fenn Green hotel on the Kidderminster to Bridgnorth road.
  14. Just a 'heads up', in case anybody on Soul Source has a bid, or is planning to make a last minute bid on the above item. I asked the seller to confirm that it was in Near Mint condition as stated in the title, he got back to me and said that he didn't realise it was advertised as NM, because he just 'copied the title from a previous listing'. I suspected that this may have been the case. Anyway, for those that are interested, from his reply to me, it sounds like a VG condition record. He was honest enough with me, but as I write, the listing hasn't been amended to reflect it's true condition.
  15. To be fair, she clearly states 'I am of course open to very sensible offers', so if a sensible offer is accepted, you'll get one hell of a discount off the current £670 high bid
