    CALEDONIASOUL

    CALEDONIASOUL

    Stafford legend and all round mover and shaker, Guy Hennigan, pays a return visit to Caledoniasoul after 15 years for a night of upfront 60s and 70s soul at a night with a growing reputation for new sounds and underplayed 45s. Guy joins residents Martin and Lenny.

  3. I'm starting to remember why I hardly ever access soul source...
  4. Can anyone clarify the matrix / run out on this please, I 'may' have an opportunity to aquire one - although not holding my breath - and it would be helpful to be very clear, is it different for the alternate pressings?
  5. Is there also a reverse colour ADMIRATIONS with PEACHES on left? So the dark pink is at the top / or bottom? The One John Manship had for sale recently had the dark pink at the bottom. John's copy obviously original, so is dark-pink-top just one variety of the original pressings? Anyone?

  11. It was pressed up by Stan Lewis at Bill's request to promote the band, "If you had a record, you got paid more and got more gigs" (Bill Bush). As far as I can gather although it's never been 100% clear and I don't think anyone could really recall, Stan did stock some in the shop he ran in Shreveport, and some sold, but it was primarily a promotional item (a business card, if you like) for Bill's combo, a very successful live group rather than recording artists. Velvet Touch is the a-side, a swamp-pop ballad that Bill was very proud of, it's a nice, well-crafted song to be fair but almost C&
  12. Just wanted to chip into this on 'Bill Bush' to set the record straight. In 2004 I tracked Bill down through the local paper, the rest is history and we became friends up to his untimely death in 2014. Over the years I sold several copies of his single I'm Waiting with profits going to Bill. He had at the time a very limited stock of his single which had been in the attic in the pressing plant box for 40 years, this was where the copies came from that I have sold. Anyone who has bought a copy of this single from Bill through me can be assured it is an original and from the artists own sto
  13. Just saw this, yes it's a swamp pop ballad.
  14. Some of you may have heard that the musician and songwriter, Bill Bush, died this week after falling at his home. He was 70. Bill recorded 'Velvet Touch / I'm Waiting' on Ronn in the mid 60s and played with the Fabulous Carousels, a.k.a Little Johnny Clark, prior to forming his own combo. I'd known Bill for exactly a decade this year since I traced him through a contact at the local newspaper. I brought his band over to the Glasgow Jazz Festival in 2005 and two years later I visited him at his home in Shreveport, Louisiana, meeting Stan Lewis, BB Davis, Eddy Giles and many other great charac
