  1. Have to say that this is yet another example though of how the Amy Winehouse vocal style has become so pervasive among contemporary female urban / RnB / soul vocalists ... to the point where the vocal style has become a complete cliche ... it's reached the point now where a couple of bars into hearing a tune like this and you just roll your eyes and think "oh no, not again, another Amy imitator". The tune is pleasant enough but completely unremarkable ... like a 3rd rate out-take from Amy's Back To Black LP. Amy was great and a one of a kind but she's been gone almost a decade now and Back to
  2. No mistaking this as an original .... New Zealand Stateside
  3. Soulful Detroit had a thread many years ago: https://soulfuldetroit.com/archives/3190/2145.html?1045499562 containing the following information about recording dates and location of certain O'Jays releases: STAND IN FOR LOVE Produced by Bobby Massey & Larry Hancock January 27, 1966 at Way Out Studios, Cleveland WORKING ON YOUR CASE / HOLD ON Produced by Bobby Massey & Larry Hancock Arranged by Herb Williams January 4, 1967 at Way Out Studios, Cleveland Of The O'Jays three releases on Imperial previous to Working On Your Case / Hold On: I'll Never Forget
  4. Mark, can you put a year on the two photos of lads in suits that you've posted ?
  5. After the 7" vinyl release please ... not the 12" Cheers !
  6. thanks Mike ... just amended my post to include the link.
  7. Thankfully this site is active again (with a new host) after being dormant for years. A great reference for those collectors who insist on having the correct company sleeve for their records. http://45-sleeves.co.uk/index.html
  8. Fantastic new release in the last few days from two legends of soul ...
  9. Giant of a man ... giant of a voice ...
  10. Seem to recall that Dave Godin in his pieces on the Wheel in Blues & Soul from 1969/70 mentions that one of the people he met was "Zan" ...
  11. Are you saying that you supplied the first copy of Earl Jackson "Soul Self Satisfaction" to be played on the scene ? And so it was first played at Up The Junction ?
  12. No info on that release but here is a super rare early 80s interview and video of the man performing his modern soul classic I'll Do Anything for You.
  13. Is it now accepted that Jerry Cook was in fact a real person, an artist in his own right, not another vocalist operating under a pseudonym ? There may still be some mystery about Jerry Cook because this release on TREK was just sold on Ebay in July of this year. It's a record that until now appears to be previously undocumented ... at least not before on Ebay or Discogs. Interesting that it is also produced by Arthur Wright ... who was the arranger on I Hurt On The Other Side. And a publishing date of 1977, some 10 years after I Hurt On The Other Side ? There is also another relea
  14. Is there any evidence to suggest that the Sylvia Robinson who is stated as apparently being the mother of Keisha Lance Bottoms is in fact the Sylvia Robinson of Mickey & Sylvia / Stang / All Platinum / Sugar Hill fame ... or some other Sylvia Robinson ? The biographies of Keisha and Major make no specific reference to that Sylvia Robinson of Stang /All Platinum fame who was also married for a long time to Joe Robinson - also her business partner in Stang / All Platinum - and who were still married in 1970 when Keisha was born. Nor does the bio of Sylvia of Stang / All Platinum make any me
