  1. Nags Head off Deansgate. Regular soul nights and Sean the landlord is a soulie with some fantastic photos in the upstairs room.

  2. Had the Marvelettes Forever compilation 2 for years and hardly played it. Put it on a few weeks ago for the commute and have been totally blown away by the sheer quality of it.

  5. I hear a symphony by Stevie is quite simply the best record ever made. Err...so I would choose that one....

  7. I saw this and to be honest I was ambivalent. Maybe could improve with some coaching, but its all about opinions and I'm not the best talent spotter!

  8. I bet 7 rooms of gloom sounds brilliant at a venue.

  9. Slightly off topic, but the Isley Brothers this old heart of mine was allocated to the 4 tops. They couldn't make the session so the Isleys stood in. I would give a lot to have heard the Tops sing that using the same backing track.

  10. Can't Help Myself the Tops. Awesome.

  11. I put around 20 singles on the jukebox in the Broadswords in Burnley in 1974. Made George the landlord a fortune. Ben Aitken , Frank Beverly, Barbara Mills , Ed Crook, Baby Don't You Weep and so on. He never bought me a pint for them and I spent a lot of money playing my own records!

  12. The samples play if you have a Microsoft account. Seems like a mixed bag on first hearing, but hopefully Ace may get involved and we might see a release on CD?

  13. Again a classic Troller's response. I quote loads of examples and you try to dissect them, thus prolonging the thread. I'm all for debate but not with you.

  14. I have read all of Majy's replies and he has contradicted himself time after time to make his response defeat the reply. I regularly read my local team's Internet forum, and there are loads of trolls on there whose sole purpose is to wind every body up. This is a poor attempt at a wind up, and I for one am getting fed up of it. To be fair, there has been some really good responses from true soulies , that shows their passion and loyalty to our scene. Move on now Majy , there's a good lad...

  15. I see that you list one of your hobbies as fishing. Quite apt.
