    News: Sad News - Eddie Willis RIP

    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.
  2. Don't buy much music nowadays, its all about to change with this fella, cant wait for this LP to come out September

    Lamont Dozier UK Tour 2018

    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.
  4. 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.

    Female "big Beat" Ballads - Your Faves?

    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.
  8. 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

    Frank Wilson At Cala Gran,fleetwood

    add The MASQUERADERS at Prestatyn the first time they come and did a saturday afternoon session and you have all 3 best performances in the last ten years, many more have come very close but IMO .....Frank, The Mighty Mighty Dells and the Masqueraders are the ones
  11. Edwin at Wigan in 74 - where he did his set and then came back and did it again when he found out about a sound fault Temptations in 75 - with Richard Street and Dennis Edwards in the line up Phil Perry at Prestatyn, Masqueraders as well but the top one was The Mighty Mighty Dells at Trentham - nothing comes remotely close to this stunner

    Favourite Producers - The Final

    Gamble and Huff for me as well, Re-HDH really should win it if only for individual tracks after they left Motown- Sterling Harrison and Thelma Houston spring to mind All great though
  13. Unfortunately I think Chuck Barksdale is very ill as well, this is indeed a sad time for all but I hope Chuck recovers from his illness The Mighty Mighty Dells - wish I could have seen them more than the once at Trentham
  14. Thanks Rob - utterly brilliant - If paul riser or mckinley jackson are on the credits you just buy it
  15. RIP Mr Babbitt remembering a great chat we had on soulful detroit when reminded that he wrote 'love and devotion' for Danny Woods "oh i forgot about that said Bob, well hundreds of northern fans haven't Bob and never will - thanks for the memories
