    Poll: Overseas Weekenders?

    Just returned from an exhausting week at the Benidorm ISF. Great weather, great people, superb Northern Soul. Eddie Holman was sensational.

    Poll: Version Battle - Not My Girl

    The Kent 45 correctly dates the Platters recording year as 1966. It is worth reading the history of the recording studio as told by co-owner Ralph Terrana. They all came. Harry Balk, Ollie McLaughlin, Ed Wingate, Clay McMurray, Theo-Coff, Don Juan Mancha, Popcorn Wylie, John Rhys Eddins, Mike Terry, Jack Ashford, George McGregor, Holland/ Dozier/Holland, Mike Valvano, ArmenBoladian, Bob Babbit, Columbia Records, Elektra Rec..
  12. “You’re Ready Now” at the Twisted Wheel.

    News: Ron Dunbar RIP

    This advert circa 1971 tells us that 95% of Invictus output hit the charts. Much of that was down to Ron Dunbar. I also liked his D Town releases as artist Ronnie Love. Yet another special person leaves us. RIP.
