  1. Reminds me of Martin Koppells list in Discoveries / Goldmine Wants back in the 90's - used it as a reference as he sectioned it by price he was prepared to pay for a m- copy - A to Z by value divisions $50 - $500. Need to go back up in the loft - think I've still got the copy. Currently got or had 108 of this list - many multi-copies over the 50 yrs since starting to collect rare soul. Nice to be reminded of so many - will need to review my wants and have a listen to the ones I don't know and there's a good few of them. We learn something new every day and in my opinion it's always been about expanding our/my knowledge of our vast musical genre. Should keep me busy since retiring last week. Happy hunting

  3. I know what you mean - learnt my lesson the hard way - Shetland wool 9g roll collar to the Junction - never sweated and itched as much to this day - It depended how good a footballer you were whether you had an Adidas bag back then. I had one, played in the 1970/71 FA Youth Cup & don't forget it was a Mecca ballroom - collar & tie ( saw numerous punters being sent over the road past the car wash to rent a tie from the cafe - did it myself ) Remember that relatively low ceiling and high numbers relative to size created a sweating heaving mass at times particularly when Tony dropped on George Carrow or the Fuller Bros and the place went loopy - Mystic arm waving to Bob Relf - to me as a 18yr old 6th former studying LOL for my A's I always arrived mohair suited but the serious dancers were of course better prepared, obviously not all Adi bagged but the fact the Highland room had it's own separate cloaks from the home of the divs downstairs enabled changes to be made but not allowed downstairs. Hairs on the back of your neck just thinking about what new sound TB was going to play next.
  4. So sad to hear of Tony's passing. First met him as an 18yr. old making my 1st trip to the Mecca - early Nov. 1971. Watched Leicester City lose 3-2 at Old Trafford on the Sat. afternoon in the rain and drove through the sleet to Blackpool and grabbed a B&B - The Argyle on Central Dr. a few hundred yds from the Mecca. Remember like it was yesterday - that top floor cloaks - amazed to see people with their Adidas bags etc changing to t's or vests and in to the Highland Room - low ceiling / claymores and shields and the music - a real eye opener. Blues & Soul has a lot to answer for. Mr Godin was right. Hooked - went up and asked Tony for a record - can't remember what but always remember his response - not dismissive or sarky but a firm 'don't play that anymore, played out'. Not an expression I'd heard before. Later he approached me after completing one of his set's and asked 'Where are you from mate' Leicester, we get a few up from there, Yes there's Blakey - do you know him. No but I soon did - buying his Earl Jackson ABC demo. Became a regular from then and Tony lent me a couple of sounds to take back to Leicester to DJ with. An Ollie Jackson and more remarkably in 1972 - Triumphs - I'm coming to your rescue - Okeh - purple stocker - absolutely massive foot to the floor acrobats nirvana. Can you imagine that now. I took it back a couple of weeks later. Got to know the Blackpool main man - apologies Ian + Gilly / Tash / Wendy Lofthouse / Colin etc. Saturday afternoon sessions with the London crowd round at Levine's. Cannot believe its been nearly 49yrs. RIP Steve Frost
  5. Don't know which is worse - spending 30yrs looking for one or as my current situation, waiting for the one I bought to arrive - caught up in the covid postal nightmare in certain country's. I've not decided what to do with it when it does arrive, will check it out for condition etc then make a decision - I will let you know. Yesterday a remarkable 7" 33rpm single - Vel-Vets - I got to find me somebody - Tono disc - arrived after 33 days from Argentina - Licensed from 20th Century Fox Records on label - Not sure how rare but must be up there. I've not actually had a copy since my original 20th Century copy which arrived unannounced as a replacement for my order of a Maxine Brown - One in a million from Simon Soussan in 1972 ( he'd sold out ) - Played it quite a lot back then to no response - eventually swapping it in Nottingham's Selecta Disc for the Professionals - Groove City + £12 - That's £12 to me as well. Seems ridiculous now but at the same time Derek Allen walked out of there with a Nabay. Both were one offs in the shop. - Great days eh. Steve
