  4. 'soul police' jesus. Just accept that some people have different wants than you do. I just wish those that don't play ov would be honest about it -after all if 'no one cares' they haven't got anything to lose have they?
  5. Yes, although there was at least one other original vinyl soul DJ there, he was mightily cheesed they got the limelight for a digital set however.
  6. I always thought you were, as I would like to be viewed- balanced. I didn't ever see you ranting & raving and you were capable of walking away when the fight was done and others couldn't hack doing the same. I'm hoping you'll stay frankly.
  7. I'd agree, in theory, but to be fair I don't care what other events do other than they should be upfront & honest about what their music policy is to allow those who do care about what they're listening/dancing to to make their own choices whether to attend at all, simply hiding behind a 'if we don't mention it no-one will notice' isn't being honest.
  8. No, we don't allow non legitimate releases either. It's not about the 'soul police' - It's about being genuine & honest basically, with yourself and your audience. I, as a promoter, want to treat people the same way I want when I travel anywhere -whether that's 10 miles or 1,000 miles - I want to be safe, comfortable, and get good value for money and a major part of that, to me, is not being cheated by misrepresentation. That means if the flyer/advert states OVO I expect all records played, rare or common, cheap or expensive to be original 1st releases, no ifs or buts.
  9. What a great voice Freddie Jackson has though!
  10. Sure there are plenty of punters (dare I even say the majority at many places?) who'll not care if the record they're appreciating at a venue is original vinyl, official issue vinyl, fake vinyl, cd, mp3 or cassette! (in that order sliding scale I should imagine too). BUT There are plenty of travelling soul fans (by which I mean getting in your car and driving an hour or more -I know that's a shock to some -but many, like me, have to travel at least 30 miles to go to a pukka venue, my own club excluded, natch) who DO care very much and frankly if a venue wasn't, at the very least, p
  11. I have to say I don't understand why anyone would buy a boot deliberately just because it's cheap. The sound quality is almost always absolutely dire, you can't play them out at any self respecting venue (certainly not a OV venue) and if you only want the track for home use why not download it/ get it on CD?
  12. Use a VPN- you can download and use one for a small sum annually, it'll then allow you to fake your IP location to any country. We watch Italian/French TV all the time by this means and we'll probably use it for watching British TV from wherever we retire to later.
  13. Geno Washington at the IOW ryde theatre about 15 years back. Awful, like a semi coherent pub singer on the karaoke. Even the most amateur of tribute acts did their performance with more gusto & talent.
  14. until

    1st time for us after 2 years at St Ives also, what a great line up of professional across the board DJs and some of the most wonderful music (and many surprises old & new!), laughter, good vibes and good times had by all. Good dance floor, excellent bar, great location. I'm actually quite loathe to place a review as I'd like to keep this all to myself -it's that good! Well done Sara, Dean, Paul & all the jocks and organisers, a top result! (unlike spurs but we won't go there).
