  • A brief intro...
    Lifelong record collector with a soul bent who got into Northern in 1989 after picking up the Kent LP "It's Torture" on a whim. Since then, it's been a wild ride of tracking down records, meeting wonderful people (both from the UK and elsewhere in the States), DJ'ing and digging the sounds.

  1. Any of you lot going to this event? I will be fact, I'm in PA. right now! Best, Mark
  2. Great article! We hear so much about Detroit and Chicago acts...I'm glad we get to hear about an L.A. act for a change! Best, Mark
  3. Are you sorted on this? I have a VG+/M- copy if you still need one. Best, Mark
  4. Mello Souls, with Elbie Parker a close second. Best, Mark
  5. Gail Wynters a/k/a Bunny Shivel. Best, Mark
  6. It shouldn't come as a surprise that Pet Clark did a version of Call Me....after all, it was written by her manager, Tony Hatch. Best, Mark
  7. Just to update you...I'm now certain it's in my brother's basement, where the majority of my 45's are. I now recall that I almost brought it home with me while trolling for singles for my DJ box. I just have to get out to his place (I live on the east side of Cleveland, he lives on the west side, and it's hard to do that during the week). I'll try and take care of it this weekend. Obviously, if you get another offer, go with that, but I'll still go and fish out the record if you still need it. Best, Mark
  8. If you still need one, I have a spare I'm willing to trade. Best, Mark
  9. Deadbeats a/k/a Dynamic Deadbeats Band, out of Virginia. They traveled to Philly to cut their single as the Deadbeats, which got issued on the Strata label. Best, Mark
  10. Tim Rose, normally known as a folk singer, who cut "I've Got a Loneliness". Best, Mark
  11. Don't know if he's in this pic, but supposedly one of the guys in the British Walkers was the late Roy Buchanan, who went on to be an extraordinary blues guitarist and singer. Best, Mark
  12. I have one, don't know if it's here at my apartment or in my brother's basement, but let me look around. Best, Mark
  13. Some folks that haven't gotten mentioned yet... Turley Richards Lance Rentzel (he made a record, but his main claim to fame was as a star receiver with the L.A. Rams football team. His promising career was shot to hell with one bad moment...he exposed himself to a little girl while at a traffic stop. Her dad was a powerful L.A. lawyer who brought the wrath of God down on him. His football career ended just like that) Tommy Good Debbie Dean The Memphis Nomads (they sure as hell sound white!) The Gentrys The Other Ones Charlie McCoy (cut that song "My Baby's Back Again", but is best-known as one of Nashville's top session men. He made a number of albums showcasing his harmonica playing in the '70's) Narvel Felts The Selective Service, from right here in Cleveland! Kenny Chandler Barnaby Bye Jerry and the Uniques ("Yes He Will") The Uniques from Louisiana, that did "Not Too Long Ago". Lead singer Joe Stampley went on to bigger success as a country artist. Bill Bush Dan Penn Best, Mark
  14. Unfortunately, no room to dance, as the brunch tables take up all the room. When they have regular DJ gigs there, there's plenty of room to dance, but they haven't had a regular gig in a while. Best, Mark
  15. Yep...I have to assemble a box of about 100 45's or so each time. It takes a little time...I swap out a lot of stuff each time and put different things in, plus I have everything in the box in alpha order by artist. Best, Mark
