    The Funky Bass Book (ed. Bill Leigh)

    When we met? Sorry, don’t get it. When I posted about the Buzzcocks it was in a thread in Freebasing - don’t think it’s visible to non members of the site, but could be wrong. Re the current thread, I certainly didn’t expect un-moderated self promotion, posting of your own YouTube clips and discussion of Bass Players in pop bands. I’d flag it up but it seems the moderator is on the same path as you.

    Please no more! This has got nothing to do with soul music.

    Soul Source Record Club 2019 Faces Boots & Braces

    This is a record that was given to me in 1977 by the late Mark “Chalky” Keelan from Norwich who in turn had been given it by Kev Fev, also from Norwich. I loaned it to a kid I used to work with along with several other 45’s and never got it back ( sound familiar?) Found the copy below on a stall on Portobello Rd recently.

    Nolan porter- if only I could be sure

    The guitar riff is pretty decent. Not easy to copy exactly as Paul Weller’s guitarist discovered. Apparently played by Lowell George from Little Feat on Nolan Porter’s original version.

    Male Voices

    Yes you’re right. Brilliant pair who shouldn’t be overlooked.

    Male Voices

    Anyone mentioned either of the Dells lead singers? Marvin Junior and Johnny Funches I think. Both great distinctive vocalists.

    What's Your Audio Setup?

    I’ve got a pair of Yamaha HS5 active studio monitors. I use them for music production but have used them with decks and they sounded great. Would I buy an amplifier again? No

    'Twas Bugging Me For ages

    Bowie showed him how it should be done miming to Fame and Golden Years on Soul Train the same year.

    R.I.P. Pete Shelley ...

    Sad news. Saw the Buzzcocks live in 1978 and still got the singles I bought then. He wrote some of the best 2 minute pop songs of the period. RIP.
  13. UK produced modern soul tune in Ex- condition. £10.00 plus £2.50 signed for postage to UK. Paypal as gift. PM if interested. Thanks for looking. SORRY NOW SOLD
  14. Just seen a sale by a dealer on Facebook of Eddie Parker - I’m Gone 70’s boot for £30.00. Why when you can buy a legit reissue brand new from Ace Records for £8.00?
  15. Employing someone to perform a service and not paying them for it is stealing money directly from them but actually is a breach of contract something which you are expected to resolve through the civil courts. Same difference. I don’t condone bootlegging but I don’t see why corporations like Sony, Universal et al should be able to use the criminal law to protect their interests when others who lose out financially don’t have the same rights. Shall we leave it at that?
