  • A brief intro...
    I've been into Soul since 1971, with the Torch being my first all-nighter. Every Weekend we'd be somewhere around the country. If I had to name a favourite place it would the The Catacombs in Wolverhampton, it had the most amazing atmosphere. In 1979 I moved to the USA, Houston Texas to be precise and I started to put together an amazing collection, ending up with around 16,000. If it was soulful I bought it. Paying 25 cents sometimes it's no wonder I'd buy anything. I moved back to the UK around 95/96 time and really just couldn't afford to keep my collection together. I sold everything and will always regret it. Not just because of monetary reasons but some I'll never replace. Soul collecting has exploded over the years with 10's of 1000's of people collecting all over the world these days it really has moved into another realm.  I started collecting again and have around 250ish mostly classic's and things that have meaning to me personally.

  1. Three up for offers. Willie Wade - When Push Comes to Shove/Come Into My World - Nite Life Promo. Label is M- Viny looks like M- but it does have two very light marks, it was only with the light shining on it that I noticed them. Plays through flawlessly. Two brilliant sides. Eddie Foster - I Never Knew/I Will Wait - IN Label is VG++ showing some very light wear. Vinyl is VG+ does have some faint makes and in the run out groves there are some marks. but does not effect playing at all. I can't remember the last time I saw this for sale.
  2. Genuine Offers please. Vinyl is a strong VG++ and plays through excellently. Labels as show a little wear with WOL on both sides.
  3. I met John through Micky Cruise (RIP) and he was certainly a character. He knew so many facts about so many things, not just soul music. I remember going to see him one morning and we started chatting about Football that led on to Non League Football and the passion that John showed for Non League Football was the same as he showed for his music. We must have chatted for hours as he had to go and make his tea as before I moved onto the records. The Soul Scene is filled with so many flamboyant people and it is always sad when we lose someone. John will be remembered by many and I'm sure there w

  5. After much arguing and debating with myself I've decided the time has come to let my Eddie Holland - Daydreamer Acetate go, I bought this off Rob Thomas about 10 years ago and it is obviously 100% genuine. This is the copy that is on YouTube that I posted myself. This was found in London by Adey along with another 10" version. There is a 7" inch cut that resides in the USA, it did belong to Bob Miner (whom I could never prize it off) whom I believed sold it to Bob Abrahamson and I believe it is now in New York somewhere. I believe the other three tracks on the Acetate are the Mike & The Mo
  6. Steve Chollo Rivera did a version that is a bit more polished but they are both kind of on the slow side, I kind of like the rawness of the Innkeeper Band though.
  7. I found it in the eighties when I lived in Texas, to be perfectly honest I kept it for the toilet logo, still makes me smile when I see it.
  8. I've got to admit I always enjoy them, I nearly fell off my chair when I heard The Innkeeper Band on one, I've hung onto that for years.
  9. John has sold quite a few bits of high end stuff for me over the years and I can honestly say that I've always been more than happy with the results. As for someone coming forward, John has over 15,000 registered users and there are a lot of anonymous armchair collectors (not only in this country) that are more than happy to pay the premium and keep it to themselves. Seen as I rarely post I'll take the time to Wish everyone a Merry Christmas or Happy holidays!!
  10. Do the UK Post Office still put a handling charge on as well with the Global Shipping Program or is it just delivered with no extra charges, because they put a £8.00 handling fee on if I'm not mistaken. I was just looking at the Johnny Caswell on eBay at the moment that is over $500+ but read the small print and I think someone may be in for a shock when they get invoiced.
