  1. We're reopening 1st July. Just Weds to Saturday at first 09.00 - 18.00 We'll have four bookable browsing slots per day, two people in each 50 min slot (+ 10 mins clean down time) 09.00 - 11.00 and 16.00 - 18.00 on Weds to Friday. Between these times and all day Saturday it's max two people in the shop on a one in/one out basis. We've got screens at both counters and hand sanitiser to be used on entry (mandatory) and at various strategic points on. both floors. No masks as the HSE gudance for retail states that extra PPE is only relevant in a clinical setting and social distancing more effective. Deck is available but it's BYO headphones. Gonna be intereresting... https://www.recordrevivals.co.uk/

  3. This has been the worst few weeks I can remember for losing so many great performers - soul music or otherwise - in such a short space of time. Really horrible
  4. Nobody has mentioned Suzi Parker yet... ...ducks for cover...
  5. Ditto Cochise. A jazz drummer who played with Les McCann among others. There’s a difference between non-soul records picked up by the scene and Tailor Mades
  6. It’s only the flip on the UK issue done fir he NS scene John. Life is a Song got a few plays before The Flasher came out - probably why the artist was already on the radar. The flip of Life is a version of Living For The City, which is pretty nice if I remember correctly.
  7. The most influential artist I can think of
  8. It's an interesting one. The UK release is 1967 as is the US MOD release. However both of the the US releases couple Picture Me Gone with I'm Gonna Make Me Love You - which was her next UK single from early 68..
  9. Here’s the latest. Now three ”RSD drops” Instead of a single day. Shops can sell online from 6pm on the day of each drop. Still problematic in my view and we’ll be seriously thinking about how/if we can do this safely. https://recordstoreday.co.uk/news/posts/2020/record-store-day-is-social-distancing/
  10. Thanks folks. I’ll keep my trap shut then.
  11. Even if they are comically overpriced? Asking for a friend...
  12. I feel as though the Ritz is in my DNA. My mum and dad met there when they went to Rock n Roll dances in the 50s. My Mum still has her Mecca charm bracelet with all the various trinkets that were awarded to loyal members, including the Mecca “golden” egg. In the 70s I started going to the Bank holiday Alldayers straight from Wigan. By the 90s I was living in Scarborough and my wife and I went to the Rarest of the Rare, Chicago and Detroit, Boxing Day All-nighters etc. I’ve always loved live music - spent spent around 14 years running venues - and Gill and regularly head over to the Ritz to see bands there. Last year we saw acts as diverse as Tower of Power and Fontaines DC. It’s an excellent live venue. I still absolutely love the place
  13. Not sure if the is the right C19 thread as I've lost track a bit, but a quick update re the SME Business Support Grants from our perspective. As I mentioned a while ago, some record shops got their payments pretty quickly, while others have been waiting to hear anything. Today, however, we got an email from our Local Authority (Scarborough Borough Council) that our grant has been approved and that BACS payment will be made tomorrow. They state an additional two working days for the money to reach our account, so we should have it on Tuesday. While we still don't know the exact amount of the grant, it's certainly a relief to know that we can continue to pay our staff, our rent and the bills due at the end of April.
  14. Gosh that’s sad. One of the best records this scene ever unearthed. Wonderful that he was recording again too. RIP Eugene
