  1. Yes the shop was on the outskirts of Zurich, but both owners were Swiss, they had lots of Northern there and I picked up about 50 45s from them but Roy Roberts stood out and I actually scanned it and put a sound file up on my website which must have been late 90s. I have a vague recollection of trading it for Rivage "Strung Out" but its a long time ago, I think it had a slight warp if thats any help, but equally it may have been Marc, the joy of time eroding memory!
  2. Did I sell/trade you that Benji, couldn't remember where it went and like you I regret moving it on, found mine in a Swiss reggae shop, makes sense I guess.

    Bedford Modern Soul Allnighter

    Thanks for this, loved this era, so many new or recent releases to choose from and I'm sure there are many that deserve an outing again.

    Unusual Places You Found Imported 45s

    hehe, I think we've all done that Mike or gone back to a place only to find the stock hasn't changed. One of the other unusual places I got records out of was a Fishing shop near the Quay where I live, musta been 75/76 maybe and me and my mates all used to fish off the Quay. Anyway went to get some bait and there was a plastic box with 45s on floor outsisde the shop next to a stand of postcards all 5P each or 5 for 20p but as I was still young I didn't have much cash and even less knowledge about Soul so I just took pot luck and 10 records and most were terrible, but I did get Legends "Fear Not", Visitors "I'm In Danger and Educators Band "Everybodies Doing Their Thing"

  6. Reading through the drill holes topic I suddenly remembered how back in the 70s all the Fairgrounds in my area always had stacks of import 45s as consolation prizes on their stalls hung up on a line or in boxes and how as a Soul fan I was always torn between trying to win and losing to get a 45 which may be decent. I once asked a stall owner if I could look through the box of 45s and I'd pay him for any I liked, but he just laughed and said, they're all crap son, just play the game. The thing is there were never any British labels, just imports, and years later someone told me the major fairgrounds tend to group up to buy their items in bulk, so did they get deleted US stock in bulk from somewhere?

    Drill holes in records

    There was a story that they were used for Ballast on ships and were threaded through with wire and suspended below decks and as someone who lives in a major harbour and used to get stacks of imports from the junk shops in my area I used to believe it, sadly the deletion story is true, shame has a nice touch to it.

    Uptown Down South Playlist Late 90s

    Yes there was a buzz about them, I always felt that over the course of a night you could hear just about anything and the list of guest DJs was very strong and thats before we touch on the Niters held there and the live artist performances. There was even a short tv feature with Mark Randell, couldn't find it on youtube tho.

    Uptown Down South Playlist Late 90s

    Yeah definately from late 90s, Dramatics, Pat Brown, Jeff Floyd & Aleshure were all 90s releases. I think the second upload was more of an oldies spot until Eddie Hubbard Djs, but its funny because on the 1st upload you can hear people talking about there is too much modern stuff and this wouldn't got played at Wigan! Glad you enjoyed them. Steve

    Uptown Down South Playlist Late 90s

    en years + later I found my tapes again so like the Yate one I posted earlier in another thread, here's part of the above playlist, more to follow over the next few weeks. I did find a note in the box to send copies to Russ, Eddie Hubbard, John Smith and few others, no idea if I actually did, if not hopefully this will make up for it!
