  1. Great to have this on 45 after listening to it so much on the Sweet Thing Going On Vol 3 cd...when those backing vocals get going on the Love Song About You track.. just heavenly! Really like this prev unreleased B side too. Cheers! S
  2. I meant Promotional Copies..buyer’s choice I guess whether to pay bit more for limited run labels. I’m all for it if it helps the record labels / artists gain a bit more income while they can, invest back for more of the same hopefully. Yes great release and hope it leads to an album or at least further single releases from this group.
  3. Email I received from Kimberlite the other day suggested a “European Distributor” had received stock delivery before they had in Canada. Official release date is 1st Aug I believe. Both the demo and issue went on pre-release sale online on Kimberlite website at midnight our time last night (5pm Canada time). Demo sold out quickly as expected and guessing the issues will too. Great to see quality new labels and new releases like this still popping up around the globe, even if it is sometimes a bit of a game trying to keep informed and still in with a shout at buying each release directly before they sell out and hit the re-seller market at 3 or 4 times the original retail price..but that’s another thread altogether I guess. Anyway I look forward to my parcel from Canada in a few weeks and to whatever comes next from Kimberlite Records. Cheers, S

    New releases 2018

    This thread seems to have dropped off so thought I’d try and get it going again!..Great new 45 soon from Kimberlite Records in Canada by “Broken Hearts Inc”to follow the high standard set by their first release a few months back
  5. Was an interesting thread on here a while back on soul packs in the 70s / early 80s, stories of what are now very rare and sought after 45s nestling amongst dozens of other then largely unknown / unpopular sounds, all for what these days look like bargain prices..but no doubt still a fair dent in the weekly wage back then! Still see occasional soul packs posted up in sales on here, sometimes on the bay etc...so is anyone still getting that buzz of the parcel delivery of largely unknown or the blind-buy of a bundle of 45s or 12s etc? I was lucky to be introduced to Rod Dearlove of Voices a couple of years ago and he’s been kindly pulling together some amazing modern day soul packs for me every few months or so when funds allow..this latest box of goodies arriving this weekend which Rod’s called ‘The lost 12's of the Golden Era of Indie Soul!’...and a few 45’s too. This latest box delivered to my neighbour last week as I was out..the look on her face was a picture when she struggled round with it and said “I think this is more building materials or tools for your garden project?!”, to which I replied “no, an early Bithday present from me to me of old records!” ...Ahhh the buzz of a parcel treat of old records hey! So whether it’s a blind-buy pack or an order of carefully chosen records, cheap or rare, just a couple in a parcel or a bumper box delivery that’s going to make the postie or delivery guy sweat a bit, be intetested to hear of mid-summer treats landing elsewhere out there! Cheers!
  6. Thanks again to those few who could make it along and to Brian Goucher, Sid Clayton + Brothers Dean & Jason Lockwood for their soul choices for this first of just three laid back gatherings at Stanwick over this summer.

    S G R - Soul Gospel Reggae. The Stanwick Hotel

    So here we are...longest day / week of summer here (already?!), World cup firmly underway and hopefully some long, lazy weekends & holidays to look forward to. Anyone who fancies soaking up some laid back soul, gospel & a dash reggae to wind down after the next England game this Sunday...we'll be here at The Stanwick hotel from 7pm, continuing on from where we left off with The Sunday Soul Sessions over the last few years... decks etc set up inside the main room with doors open onto patio & seating outside. Same music policy as before covering all things soulful from over the last 50 years, some choice new releases too, cheap as chips sounds to rarer sides. Plenty of parking & free in. Some great local collectors lined up for this one (Sid Clayton and Brothers Dean & Jason Lockwood), also looking forward to seeing and hearing some different guests at the next one end of July. Quick mention about the special one-off dayer on Sunday 2nd Sept...DJs / collectors confirmed so far for the dayer include Mark Merry, Steve Jay, Len Dopson, Dave Halsall and a few more to be confirmed! Anyway I'll update that under the separate event over the next week or two, but for now we'll enjoy the first one this Sunday and hope to see you there. Cheers!

    What, you’ve never heard this?!!!

    Len, you might want to check your shelves as I think you sold me your Bobbie Smith several years ago! I might be imagining it but I think you then asked me what it was when I played it out somewhere a year or two later

    Peterborough-Carl-Fortnum-Steve-Jay-Caliente

    Not been able to make the last few of these for various reasons (“if it wasn’t for those pesky kids!”), so I’m looking forward to picking Brian up on the way, late as usual, then having a good night at the Cali

    New releases 2018

    Cool new laid back soul for a Friday night from the Colemine record machine Here’s the detail from Terry at Colemine Records... Wesley Bright & The Honeytones new single out digitally! “We are proud to announce the first new music from Akron, OH's Wesley Bright today! We have known Wesley and company for a while now, but it wasn't until last year that they came down to the studio to cut a couple of tunes and we are just now sneaking this first one out digitally. And would you believe it, this is the B-side! We'll be announcing the 45 once it arrives here, but we just couldn't contain ourselves with this one so we had to get it out on Spotify, Apple Music, etc. Wesley Bright is a family man, a community man, and soul man! But would you believe that he not only makes sweet soul music, but also makes honey. I'll say it again. He makes honey. We are very excited to be working with him and the rest of the band as they are going to crank out some killer soul music in the near future! Best, Terry”
