    Blue-eyed Soul?

    One of the most famous one's from the 70's that became a hit, always hits the spot along with "Jo Jo"...

    Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Only just come across this topic after not logging in for a long while! Use to love the first couple of hours at Cleethorpes Winter Gardens when Poke would be playing all the latest new promo stuff he'd picked up from Soul Bowl. I'd slowly over about an eighteen month period got more and more into the new stuff, and even later on realised the Northern stuff I liked the most had that polished early to mid 70's new production, lush strings with rolling percussion behind, as opposed to the more stomping late 60's Detroit sound. Stuff I was into at Cleethorpes that Poke was spinning was stuff like Double Exposure : Ten Percent, Love Committee : Cheaters Never Win, LaSo : La So Square, Ripple : The Beat Goes On, Evelyn King : Shame, Marsha Hunt : The Other Side Of Midnight, John Gibbs : Trinidad, Cameo : It's Serious, Francis McGee : Delirium to name a few. Then in Spring 78' went on my own to my first Ritz All Dayer, it was the 3rd Anniversary if i remember rightly! Musically a big day for me, noticed how the folks from the disco/jazz-funk crowds were having a good old time, some of the guys actually dancing with girls in some cases (doing the bump), some folks with whistles and other musical instrument stuff. Vibrant clothes as well they were wearing, all exciting stuff! LOL Then the music, so infectious!!! Ashford & Simpson : Don't Cost Ya Nothing, George Benson : On Broadway, EWF : Runnin', and a few more like Joe Sample : Many Stops Along The Way, Lee Ritenour : Fly By Night that became ingrained in my head. Colin Curtis was the man that day, and still to this day one of my all time favourite DJ's. I quickly became involved more and more with the Disco / Jazz-Funk scene to the point by late 78' I'd stopped attending Northern Soul events altogether. I started going to the Leeds Central every Friday night for Dewhurst & Schofield's night, some Saturdays over to Manchester for Rafters with Colin Curtis, and the usual Blackpool Mecca and Ritz All Dayers. I occasionally came down to London as well for The 100 Club Saturday afternoon session and other weekend club nights happening around central London. Wonderful days that along with my start on the Northern Soul scene from 74' gave me the foundations for a musically rich life to date. These days musically, I jointly run a monthly night called 'Reference Point' mostly in the central London area (sometimes in other spots like Leeds and Asturias in Spain as well) since 2013 playing Soul, Jazz, Library/Soundtracks, Disco, AOR, Brazilian & Balearic musical sounds. I even ended up becoming friends with Alex Malheiros the bass player from Azymuth (one of my all time favourite jazz fusion bands) and hanging out at his house just outside of Rio De Janeiro, as well as visiting Ed Motta and becoming friends. Met my wife while on one of my record digging trips in Brazil in the mid 90's, compiled a Brazilian comp for EMI / Blue Note Records(Blue Brazil 3) back in 2000, and in the last few years compiled the 'Americana - Rock Your Soul' Volumes 1 & 2 for BBE Records together with a friend (Volume 3 out this coming summer). All this happened due to those early foundation days of following the music of the Northern Soul and Jazz-Funk scenes back in the 70's... Mark GV Taylor
  5. What bothers me is that most things in the U.S. (petrol, food, clothing, housing) are cheaper than here in the U.K. & most of Europe, so how come their postage charges for International are among the highest of 1st world countries!!! It cost's about half the price to mail stuff over to the U.S. from U.K., and It's cheaper to get stuff mailed from Japan these days that it is in the States, some kind of con going on somewhere with the standard U.S. Mail Postal prices (not couriers).

    West Java, Indonesia...soul Scene?

    Have a friend who's played in Jakarta and in Bali a few times, but that was more on the garage house soul tip!

    Buying From Japan

    I buy from Japanese dealers on the usual selling sites, and also from a couple of the shops every couple of months. To date always smooth transactions, and the records are always exactly as described condition wise. Mark

    Paypal Fees?

    Could be they are incorporating the 4% fee that they will get charged by Paypal when the money for goods is paid into their paypal account!
