  1. Notre Dame Hall Leicester Sq

    While searching for a particular flyer - that I failed to locate - I stumbled across this; another '80's Notre Dame Hall promotion. When was this; '84?
  2. Notre Dame Hall Leicester Sq

    I enjoyed Friday night sessions at the Notre Dame Hall during the first half of 1983 - sadly it was raided during July (IIRC), and that was the end of that!
  3. April Silver

    The Brymers story sounds logical. Several US garage bands covered this tune (the Stones back catalogue being standard fayre), although i don't think i know of another female vocal version. I heard it at soul nights around London / Essex in the early 80's and ...
  4. Your First

    SOUL BROS INC "PYRAMID" £100 APPROX 1990 . FOR YEARS I THOUGHT THAT WAS TOO MUCH . THERE WERE ALWAYS COPIES AROUND AND THE GOING PRICE SEEMED TO REFLECT IT BEING A CURRENT 'NIGHTER SOUND . DON'T THINK THE PRICE EVER DROPPED MUCH AFTER THAT TIME .
  5. Just Like Romeo & Juliet

    Ultimate Spinach "(Just like) Romeo & Juliet" (MGM)1969 This was a pop / psych band out of Boston , MA . Freaky organ led backing !
  6. First Lp Bought

    The first Soul album that i bought was Mary Wells "Greatest Hits" . Picked it up from a second hand shop in Walthamstow during the summer of 1982 . I was already a fan of tracks such as "What's easy for two..." , but this collection introduced me to the wonde...
  7. Weather Songs

    A few more ........ Nolan Chance "Just like the weather" (Constellation) Vernon Garrett "Shine it on" (Kent) Betty Turner "The winds kept laughing" (Crescent) Gerald Sims "Cool breeze" (Okeh / Tip Top)
  8. Sweet William - Maybe Baby

    Nice to see this tune getting some recognition . I have had it on a George Sharp tape since '87 , not sure if it was a popular spin anywhere at that time , certainly cannot recall hearing it out myself . Have scanned my copy in case anyone needs to put a pict...
  9. Mr Floods Party Versions

    Not really , it doesn't have the jazz or psych influences that the self titled Mr Flood's Party album has . Titus Oates has more in common with southern rock .
  10. Mr Floods Party Versions

    Titus Oates released an album "Jungle Lady" on the Lips label (no , honestly) in 1974 . Appears to be all self penned material and no sign of "Compared to what" .
  11. Strangest Record To Be Played On The Scene

    This is certainly an odd track . They were a UK group , loosely fitting into the prog rock genre , but with a leaning towards a classical / Ennio Morricone sound . They had quite a prolific output through the '70's but nothing else that i have heard is of int...
  12. Cody Black

    A copy described as VG+ sold for $437 (£252) on ebay 02/01/06 .
  13. Shadows And Reflections

    The Lownly Crowde "Shadows and reflections" (mgm) voc/inst UK mod / soul band The Action also cut a vocal version of this track for Parlophone in 1967 . Can't manage a wonderful scan of an mgm issue but here goes .
  14. Few New Sales

    Watched a Little Melvin and the Boleros on ebay last month . Copy was listed as Ex cond. and sold for $158.05 after gaining 10 bids . Surprised me as i recall all the major dealers selling it quite cheaply (£15/£20) in the early 90's . Classy tune .
  15. Instrumentals

    Have to agree , heard it down the 100 club at the weekend and it still sounds as good as it did in the late 80's !!!
