    Rhonda Davis - Long Walk On A Short Pier

    I have no idea Sean.........just musing on the the possible connection of 'Rhonda' on Stax and the Rhonda on Volt (Stax subsidiary) ....... like I said I don't know the Stax track.......

    Rhonda Davis - Long Walk On A Short Pier

    you have me confused Roburt.... so Rhonda Washington was also signed to Duke before her work with Hot Sauce?

    Rhonda Davis - Long Walk On A Short Pier

    The 'lead' on Volt records act 'Hot Sauce' was a Rhonda Washington - half a dozen fine single before disappearing. I don't know the track you mention but I would guess it is from the vaults issued on the reactivated Stax label................. comparing the Washington (Volt) and Davis (Duke) tracks their voices are not a million miles apart ...but who knows?

    Record Store Day ( Soul Stuff )

    Damp Squib for Soul fans maybe but 60,000 LPs and 30,000 45's sold on the day in the UK alone - keeps a lot of small businesses going.......

    The Dells was a legendary night for sure Baz...everyone was there it seems, the only person who missed it I know was Kev Kane!

    Heir Hunters on BBC

    The sale of the remaining 4000 or so records from his collection was discussed at length on here - Featonbys Auctioneers on Tyneside sold them..something like £7 k was made on the day.... I have a copy of the spreadsheet the auctioneers provided...none of the lots really took my fancy....

    Best live performance

    I have seen some wonderful Soul performers in recent years....all performing far better than you have any right to expect.......some highlights include... Ann Sexton and Debbie Taylor at The Witon Irma Thomas, Barbara Lynn, Mabel John, Willie Hightower, Tony Owens, Brenda Holloway and Betty Harris in New Orleans in 2016 (Ponderosa Stomp) William Bell, Ann Sexton, Masqueraders, Denise Lasalle, Timmy Thomas, Spencer & Percy Wiggins, Don Bryant, John Gary Williams and Randy Brown in Memphis in 2016, also down the road in Muscle Shoals Eddie Floyd and Mary Gresham with Travis Wammack Phillip Mitchell, Barbara Mason, Michael James Kirkland, Lew Kirton, Lenny Williams and Margie Joseph in Bilbao over the past 5 years The O'jays in Nevada in 2010 and Aretha Franklin in North Carolina in 2016.. Nearer to home - William Bell at the Sage Gateshead last year (with the Stax Academy) were fantastic and in London last year Don Bryant at Ronnie Scotts was brilliant as were The Impressions at The Union Chapel.... The Albert King/John Lee Hooker/ Buddy Guy and Jnr Wells show at The Hammersmith Odeon mentioned earlier was a night to remember although Albert was in better form at Colne the year he died in '92. ...and not forgetting the great Bobby Bland at the Albert Hall back in 2000... Try to catch as many as I can..always worth the effort.......

    Lamont Dozier UK Tour 2018

    The Impressions were fantastic in the Union Chapel last year Steve. A great venue.

    Lamont Dozier UK Tour 2018

    One of Soul Music's greatest and legendary songwriters sat at the piano performing and talking about Soul Music's greatest and legendary songs....what a total waste of time ! Why would you support such a thing ?

    JUST CANT LIVE MY LIFE - LINDA JONES - W/B U.K.

    well it wasn't 'flipped' as such...it was not a contemporaneous release with the US, it was released six or so years later because of the Northern Soul scene demand. Although it was the first time released in the UK it is no different than say Pye Disco Demands, Right on or Route releases......

    How the hell is this not massive??

    I have no opinion on the record itself.
