  1. It is Sam Dees. Rod Dearlove had this as a 10" acetate and talked about it in issue #24 of his "Voices Of Shadows" magazine which came out in 1997. He also stated it was recorded in 1971. The other song on the acetate was "Found Love In My Own Backyard".
  2. For my part, I have simply stopped buying records at this time from overseas as I'm not sure how likely they are to turn up. An LP I bought from the Czech Republic has still not arrived and was apparently - and I have no reason to think it wasn't - posted just over three weeks ago. I have never before not had a record arrive from Europe.
  3. RIP, Bill... you were one of the finest - and one of the nicest - of all soul singers..
  4. This may be of interest to some : https://lightintheattic.net/releases/6199-stone-crush-memphis-modern-soul-1977-1987
  5. I would have thought it prudent to think hard about shipping from anywhere in the world right now. I haven't bought any records at all in the last ten days, and the last two I did were from Europe. Both would have arrived by now in the normal course of events but I'm still waiting. I imagine they will turn up but delivery times are going to be longer than usual, and that's even assuming they can be posted in the first place.
  6. Well, I sincerely hope he is right. But as my daughter and brother both work in an NHS hospital and neither has been tested yet, and there is still no definite sign in short term of that happening, and with staff numbers massively down thanks to self-isolation, I am afraid I have to remain a bit sceptical.
  7. I would think that the CURRENT price for Harry Deal and Malcolm Hayes - or any other record for that matter - is a lot less than it was a week ago.. Discuss.
  8. I’m totally disappointed with human nature with this crisis, it’s nothing but selfish behaviour, mob mentality, it really shows up the bad side of human nature, a bit of self control ,empathy , common sense and discipline would definitely tip the balance in the right direction, you can actually feel the badness in the air while shopping in the supermarkets, Just Hope that Common Sense does prevail or have we learned nothing from the past that’s what’s frightening KR Couldn't agree more. Unfortunately, there are a number of people in Britain - maybe 5% or 10% ? -- who are so selfish and thick that they will never be persuaded to do anything other than exactly what they want to do and screw the rest of us. There are doubtless still millions of people who equate Britain with demonstrating a 'Blitz Spirit" when things get tough so God knows what they think when they see people fighting over sodding toilet rolls. Pathetic beyond words. At least the majority of people WILL rise above it thankfully. If someone is frightened by all this, fair enough, but sheer stupidity is something else.
  9. No, the live event with Joe Battan and Swamp Dogg was held at another venue in the city but there were some DJ sessions on the rooftop of the Ercilla hotel, but not in the downstairs bar.
  10. Aah, I can reply to myself ! I see the Shirelles info is already contained in one of the links above... I should have checked before posting so hastily...
  11. I also believe, but am not 100% sure, that she fronted a 'fake' Shirelles outfit after she left the Ribbons which resulted in a 1975 court case...
  12. It is, especially as one could get most of the original albums at £3 or £4 quid without having to look very hard, and only Soul Folk In Action or We'll Get Over originals would set you back around the £20 mark...and even the 1 disc of 'rarities' is hardly thrilling...and I LOVE the Staples...so if I'm underwhelmed.....
  13. Will be interesting to see how this one sells; great music of course, bu it strikes me as wildly overpriced. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Come-Go-Me-Collection-VINYL/dp/B07Y4KVKSH/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=staple+singers&qid=1575989660&s=music&sr=1-1
  14. And, for that matter, this lot too: https://www.discogs.com/label/692259-Soul-From-The-Vault
  15. "I know that Discogs is heavily attempting to block them from sale (they haven't got it covered yet completely" They are not even close to having it covered.. look at this, bootlegs the lot of them: https://www.discogs.com/label/692572-Soul-From-The-Vaults
  16. Whole programme very depressing, the amount of scumbags out there....hardly news, I know. Also, must be first time ever a Paul Kelly record - even if fake - has been seen on the BBC....
  17. One of the greatest of all soul singers, and woefully underrated. Her music has given me hundreds of hours of pleasure. It was my dream to possibly see her live at somewhere like Bilbao but clearly no longer an option. RIP.
  18. It sounds to me as if Joni Wilson is simply singing over the Parliaments "All Your Goodies are gone" original. Both backing track and backing vocals seem more or less identical on each record to my ears.
  19. Hard to beat this lot, all cost next to nothing...... Betty Everett There'll come a time O'Jays One night affair Shelbra Deane Don't touch me Jerry Butler Giving up on love Jackie Moore Sweet Charlie babe Ella Washington Stop giving your man away Manhattans I can't stand for you to leave me Insights Love and peace of mind Bill Coday Get your lie straight Deon Jackson Ooh baby Fifth Dimension No love in the room O.V. Wright Ace of spades Gino Washington What can a man do Freddie Hughes Send my baby back Irma Thomas Good to me Mitty Collier Everybody makes a mistake Laura Lee Hang it up John Roberts Sockin' 1234 Otis Clay Tired of falling in and out of love Gene Chandler You can't hurt me no more ….and thousands of others, of course.....
  20. The cost / value of a record is never of any particular importance to me but it has just struck me that I have absolutely no idea what - if any - CDs are "in demand" and /or expensive....do such things exist?
  21. Would be interested in buying this if anyone has one for sale. Thanks.
  22. Hello, I'm after a copy of his 1964 U.K. LP on Columbia 33SX 1728 thanks John
