    Yanks Over Here, Brits Over There

    Another ex-serviceman I don't think we've mentioned yet - Ronnie Jones... http://www.cyrildavies.com/Ronnie.html

    Yanks Over Here, Brits Over There

    ...plus of course "Get Down With It" was produced by Norman Smith , who went on to have a couple of pop hits as "Hurricane Smith"...

    Non Vinyl

    Nor had I until a year or so ago, despite having been around for more decades than I can remember - apparently played by Soul Sam, Top Rank Hanley 1973 - and just the other day I saw it on a Soussan sales list from 1975 - just goes to show how many tunes there are just under the radar...

    Djs on top of their game 2018?

    Strictly personally, I always look forward to Jordan Wilson's sets, as well as Matt from Trowbridge and of course Ted Massey...

    Yate Memories

    Melvin Clapton is (despite all the odds) alive and well and active on Farcebook, sadly Roy Hyett passed on some years ago now...

    ...and I missed both your sets as I was in the other rooms! Great to see you and Sarah, as always - catch you at Soulfusion in January if not before! Back on topic, great weekend, full of tunes, fun, chatter and laughs - but no fancy dress - not the biggest but a real soul family vibe to it. Loved it to bits...

    Manor Suite Porthcawl

    I only went the once - as far as I can remember - December 1984, a coach from Cheltenham and Gloucester with all the usual reprobates on board . Had a great night, think I got home about 6am, tried to sleep for a couple of hours, and then went to work for the whole day! Hmmmm....

    So how was it? Let's hear about your weekend?

    Yep, Soulfusion is one of my regular bookings so naturally I was there - another busy night from start to finish, as always a mix of the favourite tunes as dictated by the dancers, with a few underplayed things thrown in for good measure, the usual quality set from Ted Massey, regional DJ's with decades of experience in Jinksy and Don Palmer, plus the excellent Dean Carr, not to mention uptempo soulful and jazzy house in the second room hosted by one of the country's finest mix DJ's Paul Garland...must be why it's still going strong thirteen years on! And oh look, there I am at the bar...

    Uk Street Soul - The Tsr Label

    "Falling in love" by DeLuxe is a must play whenever I do those sort of nights - hard to get hold of apparently, and always gets people asking about it...

    Carmel Strings, I hear a symphony, white label??

    Can't recall an Instr of JWIMS, but I do remember the Disco Strings of Cloud Nine LP - another "wallpaper" instrumental LP which was big for a few minutes!

    R I P Lee Vowles

    St Ives and Newquay will continue, but I know Baby Boy will be posting more about that on here - for myself I'm still just utterly gutted, although I'd known of Lee for decades it's only over the last couple of years that we'd become friends, and it was only last Thursday night we were chatting on the phone about upcoming events and getting together for a few beers. It was an honour to know the Big Man, and I'll miss his usual greeting of "Ah, Jeremiah Hipflask!" RIP Lee...

    How the hell is this not massive??

    One from me - what a stormer!

    Liking the "San Removals Strings" :-) - don't you just love predictive text?

    John Peel's unknown soul record from 1975?

    Not really, the whole thing about the "underground" scene was supposed to be rebelling against the mainstream - by the summer of '67 those involved considered soul naff, commercial and - to use a phrase coined a little later - "teenybopper" music. Those of us who stuck with it got ribbing and sneers from mates, believe me! Peel just ditched the Fab 40 playlist to see if he could get away with it and the Perfumed Garden grew from there. Incidentally, it's fun looking at their charts and seeing future Rare Soul favourites getting plays, like in this one which has Bobby Sheen in the Top Ten! http://radiolondon.co.uk/rl/scrap60/fabforty/aug66/aug661/fab070866.html
