  1. More mouth watering goodies. I have just received my copy of the Thom Bell disc- awesome Philly sounds- surely this is the first a series focussing on the work of Thom Bell!
  2. Another fantastic compilation form the guys at ACE/KENT. The quality of the material is top drawer and of course the artists featured are terrific. The accompanying booklet is stuffed with bios, publicity shots, info on each track and label scans. No one comes close to these guys when compiling a disc. The sound quality is excellent too. Love it!

  5. Fascinating stuff. We are right there in the room as the magic is being made. I wonder what tracks were being recorded?
  6. Found this, Record Mirror readers letters page from 1966. Complaints galore about James Brown's RSG special...
  7. A BIOGRAPHY of Jan Bradley published in Billboard March 1963.
  8. Another Billboard chart from March 1963- The R&B Singles, some interesting and surprising records included. This is due to them being bought in stores that provided data for the Billboard chart located in African American neighbourhoods.
  9. Thanks for the info guys. I remember Channel 4 broadcasting a short run of RSG shows in 1984/5. The Morown Special being a particular hi light. Dave Clark released a couple of video compilations at the time. Videotape was expensive back in the 60s and TV stations around the world were in the habit of wiping shows after they were broadcast in order to reuse the tape for future episodes. So many great performances and iconic shows have been lost forever. There is always the hope that someone somewhere has a copy in their loft or garden shed and will be uncovered someday soon. The James Brown Show sounds electrifying!
  10. I enjoyed the documentary but was also frustrated by it. Detail seemed to be secondary, for example no mention of when it was first broadcast. It would've been nice to know which artists appeared on the debut show and what songs did they "perform". That kind of detail does matter! Great to see the old clips of the artists in their prime- teenagers and 20 somethings. I wonder how many of them thought they would still be around and enjoying a successful career almost 60 years later? It was great to see a large section of the documentary devoted to R&B/Motown. I was surprised that the Supremes did not feature in the performances documentary that followed- Motown's biggest act!
  11. Thanks for posting this incredible performance. WHAT A VOICE! The power, depth and such a sweet tone. A powerful combination. This gal deserved to be a major star. Yet another sad tale of an African American artist who couldn't overcome the odds stacked against them.
  12. The UK Soul Singles Chart published in Blues & Soul/Record Mirror on 15th March 1975
  13. The first ever UK R&B Singles chart. Published in Record Mirror July 3rd 1965
  14. WOW this is a new find! Great record. Blue Magic never managed to crack the UK charts. Side Show & Three Ring Circus were hits in the UK for reggae star Barry Biggs. Terrible inferior versions to the originals!
