  • A brief intro...
    Hi, I've listened since my schooldays to all genres of Black Music and have been collecting since I was about fourteen, I've gone through phases buying 60's soul, Funk, Deep Soul ,Reggae, Ska, chart soul in the seventies, Jazz Funk in the 80's, stopped buying in the 80's when children came along and moved onto cd's as the record player gave up the ghost. Sold most of the good stuff over the years which I now regret since recently rediscovering the joy of playing vinyl again. With my fiancé Lou we attend several local nights her tastes being different to mine, she's more a top 500 girl whereas I lean towards rare and underplayed and rnb though we manage to find nights that suit us both.

  1. I checked it out on Discogs Richard after reading and listening to your post, quite a few Ep releases for sale there but above my self imposed budget sadly,
  2. Memories of the Warner Bros tour spread over two nights at the Free Trade Hall Manchester, had tickets for the second night and decided on a whim to go to the first night, one of the few times I've been in the right place at the right time, we were just about to get tickets when a guy asked did we have any, thought he was a tout, turned out sales hadn't been as strong for the first night and he was from WB , gave us two tickets, four rows back, can't remember exactly which groups were on on which nights think it was Tower of Power on the Thursday with Little Feat and someone else maybe Montrose, don't think it was Graham ,think they were on second night with the Doobie Bros.
  3. Bit of a funky number for a Friday, cheap too,
  4. Very nice, when it started I thought ummm this is nice, by the end the old feet were tapping, great post ,cheers
  5. There was a time in my life where the opening lines had very significant meaning for me, pretty sure quite a few of us have experienced the feeling of being alone in a crowded room, putting on a brave face, the opening lines passed through my mind more times than I care to remember......still a great tune I'd all but forgotten about, thanks for posting Ed......not sure about the memories though
  6. When the good times return as they surely will you will look back with pride at how you coped, this I know from experience, it has always given me a sense of inner pride when I look back at the tough times and how I managed not to sink into depression. Only last week searching for something I found two hole in the wall statements from that time , ten years after my marriage had broken up where I was left in debt I still only had just shy of £400 in the bank, I remembered the sense of achievement I felt when when I reached another £100 knowing I could take out enough for the weeks shopping and the kids spending money and still have £100, then £200 and so on, what I didn't realise or had forgotten was how long it took me to get to that £400. I don't know who said it or whether I read it in a book but it's the small victories that can give the most pleasure, something like that anyway.
  7. Not a lot one can say really other than I feel for you, been through similar where the break up of a marriage, looking after kids and no money is concerned but cannot imagine how you must be feeling and coping with all the illness on top of everything else. The fact you say you are happy enough says much of the human spirit you must possess in abundance. Keep fighting my friend, wishing you all the best the future can give,
  8. The ones on Scout Moor are the ones opposite me, quite something to stand under them when they either start up or are turning to face the wind. Much as I dislike them they do give some unusual photo opportunities. There is reputedly 9 kilometres of rough road laid between them all, some carbon footprint there.
  9. I've grown to live with them, no choice really, within 1/2 mile at the front of my house and a couple of miles at the back, when they put them up they assured us we wouldn't see them ,first one they built right on the edge of the hill opposite. I love coincidences ,this mornings was two fold, walking by the river I came to the footbridge which crosses a small stream that flows into said river, a lady was approaching from the other side with her dog so I stepped to the side nearer the river bank, I've seen Kingfishers many times in different spots along the river but as I stepped off the path onto the bank I startled what I guess was a pair, one flew directly across to the other bank one down the river, never seen two together before. Walking along the path in the field when glinting in the sunshine was what you see in the photo which I'm guessing can only be from the Kingfisher, agreed not a great photo but a fine coincidence. Keep your eyes open folks you never know what you'll see. Tother two, creepy exposed tree roots and an unusual cloud formation.
  10. Recent purchase, a gentle groover...
  11. That more than qualifies, it's put my teeth on edge
  12. It's Billy Rick, never seen myself as a Barry , been called a few other names in my time not many of them complimentary
  13. some great tracks ,working my way through but had to smile, off topic, at the start of Steve Greens set he called himself a "twat". That brought back a memory, many years ago we had an engineer who used to come up for meetings from Bristol ,in an office full of women talking about a colleague he called him a "twat", as you can imagine the room went silent and he knew he'd said something wrong, "what have I said?", when the women pointed out you can't say that he said well he is an idiot, his face when they explained that "twat "had a totally different meaning up here you can imagine the look on his face. sorry for off topic but it amused me.
  14. uuummmm, I've flirted with the housey stuff, find it very confusing all the different titles, deep house etc, I stuck with it as you asked Rick, it does have a certain hypnotic quality, after listening on the laptop I tried it through the sound bar then found myself on Discogs checking prices, I didn't buy it as I should have realised it would be a 12, I do buy 12's but rarely play them and I doubt that I would play this again but I did enjoy, always nice to listen to something different
  15. I don't think it counts as a strange one so I won't post it but I always loved the live version of Africano by EWF, happy memories seeing them as support for Santana in Manchester before they hit the big arenas.
