  1. Seems we'll be getting to see this documentary later in the year. It's said to contain lots of rare old footage about the company & it's artists ... https://variety.com/2019/music/news/hitsville-the-making-of-motown-acquired-by-showtime-for-u-s-1203220309/

    Now in his 70's but still going strong … top Donny soul man (now based in Worksop) … Tom Sleight ... he's sure to be out on the dance floor @ this event …
  4. We are losing way too many of our hero's at the moment … so it was great to learn that Lou Ragland (now in his 80's) is still going strong. He just participated in a big Cleveland soul show and helped assemble a whole bunch of heavyweight Ohio soulsters …
  5. We're losing way too many of our hero's these days ….
  6. The Steinways in Ilford & Islington … cor blimey guv …
  7. In 1969, you could have seen Mary Wells live @ the Flamingo ... a youtube piece about the club ..
  8. This place was a mod haunt that played ska & soul in the 60's. It moved on to feature just about 100% reggae by the end of the decade …
  9. Not too much on this web page of direct interest to us, but it does feature some great photos of London clubs ... http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/london/hi/people_and_places/history/newsid_9171000/9171130.stm

  12. They just kept on & on making great music … one from the 90's …
  13. Sidney Barnes just stated that the Dells' Chuck Barksdale passed away earlier today... another great loss to soul music … R.I.P. ... the guy will certainly be going HIGHER & HIGHER today ...
  14. Didn't the Ricky-Tick operate out of a few different premises in Windsor down the years, the Star & Garter Pub, the Thames Hotel and a building on Barry Avenue ? …. their posters just about always featured the face of an anguished black singer …. When Roy C was on there, he saw the poster & took it that the face was meant to be his … he wasn't at all pleased until told it was just a generic picture.
  15. The Dells live in DC back in the day … end of December 1967 ... I was one of the lucky fans who got to see them perform @ Trentham Gardens a few years back; a magical night.
