  1. I wish I had, December 74 - I think Edwin said there was a fault with the sound system and he started his act all over again. Betty Wright was another act I caught but again I wish I could see photos, apparently she was full of Flu the night she appeared, really sorry about her passing early this year, ever the professional she was still good when appearing at Band on the wall in Manchester a few years back.
  2. "You made me 3 times happier that the law allowed me to be" with your Music Mr. Ragland. Condolences to your loved ones and may you RIP. A great Soul Artist
  3. So sorry to hear about Clay McMurray passing. Had a good talk with him at Prestatyn a few years ago and thanked him for various tracks especially a couple on the great Ruffin CD from 2004. Definitely up there with other great producers like George Kerr, Van McCoy etc.
  4. Thank you for this. Hope they go to bigger things
  5. I wish Channel 4 would have a trawl through their vaults and broadcast Soul programmes from middle 80s. I remember interviews with Bobby Womack and Greg Perry, plus who remembers Jeffrey Daniels introducing Soul train in a wrap round skirt? I am sure there are more gems to be found
  6. Well Roburt, BBC managed to tape over many episodes of TOTP so don't hold your breath, but to be fair "Motown at the BBC " was aired a few months back and it was very good. The Newspaper clips that stood out for me were the appearances of Lou Johnson and Joe Tex on "Scene at 6-30" a Granada news programme which aired after the main news in the 60s. I wonder if Granada still have any of those programmes in their archives?
  7. Very sad at this news. His opening guitar Intro to "Its a Shame" at the Funk Brothers UK Tour was very special. RIP Eddie and thanks for a great memory.
  8. Don't buy much music nowadays, its all about to change with this fella, cant wait for this LP to come out September
  9. Good shout this, would not have hesitated years ago, but a Motown songbook is not up my street. If he is doing "Fish aint biting", "Cant get off till the feeling stops", etc etc, then I am in.
  10. Jack Ashford recalled in his book that the "Funks" turned up for work to be met by a notice on the door stating "no session today". Can you imagine that? I would have thought the major players like The Temps, Diana Ross, would have been in the know, but very few on the production side after that. Like the previous poster said, Gordy would have kept his cards very close to his chest.
  11. Great pics, great memories, have been in print for 40 years sadly no more

  13. I don't know what it is about Brenda Reids voice but it reaches every bone in my body. I can't remember if i have seen her live during mid seventies in the "reaching for the best period" but even in my youth full state I am sure I would have remembered that voice. I'm not sure if she was there then but I know Herb Rooney was. Fantastic post.
  14. I think another book is coming out soon after called "MEMPHIS 68", should be interesting as well, been pretty busy as Mr Cosgrove. Will need to get them both methinks
  15. RIP to the last great soul man. Thanks for the music.
