  1. Freddie Hughes recorded a solo version of “We got to keep on”, slower than the Casanova Two. It’s on his Wand LP
  2. They certainly were beautiful items, I have a few by the Impressions. Especially nice if they come with the juke box inserts
  3. Thanks for your replies, Guys. It seemed a strange one - seems to have been allocated the number 4-7200, only 3 after “It ain’t no use” (7197) and 3 before “Rhythm” (7203), both of which charted just 2 months apart. I’m guessing it was pulled and replaced with “Rhythm”. I have it on a French EP - I guess that’ll have to do.
  4. Can anyone confirm if this Okeh 45 exists? It’s shown in the label listing with the release number 4-7200, but in several decades of looking, I’ve never seen or head of a copy.
  5. Steve Guanori’s Scepter/ Wand book gives the details of the Something New single and of the Mad Tad label. The BGR single is notable for the B side - its a version of the Etta James/Willie Dixon standard “ I just wanna make love to you”, but credits Kenny Lynch as composer, so probably the only time you’ll see Kenny’s name and Curtis Mayfield on the same record.
  6. The Impressions - (Baby) Turn on to me, and Something New - You Babe, both have the catalogue number: Curtom CR1954
  7. A true one-off. If there was an Olympic medal for DJing while balancing a pint of lager on your head, Keith would win it hands down. I’ve had some great laughs with Keith over the years, and hope to have many more. Happy 70th, Keith.
  8. 45Cat also allows you to log your collection
  9. Oakhill Bowling Club, Stoke-on-Trent, presents a night of Soul and Motown. 8.00pm until midnight. £2 admission. Real ale available.
  10. You’re quite right, it is Genya Ravan
  11. I bought this recently, it was the only record I’d ever seen with the names Kenny Lynch and Curtis Mayfield on the same label. It turned out to be the Etta James classic written by Willie Dixon - I wonder what the story is behind this
  12. Oakhill Bowling Club, Stoke-on-Trent, President’s Evening. A night of classic soul and Motown with Nick Marshall, 8 - midnight. £5 admission includes hot buffet
  13. Here’s a thing! I’ve just played the two versions side by side and they’re in different keys - the unissued version is a semitone higher It also sounds a bit faster to my ears - can anyone confirm?
  14. Mine arrived today - it sounds to me more like Fred Cash singing lead rather than Sam Gooden
  15. I’ve had one from Roger before, did us proud. I’ll be in touch with him. Thanks
  16. I once bought an Ian Levine soul pack - playing through them was an ordeal!
  17. I’m looking for a soul pack (100 records) to share with some chums for Christmas. Does anyone know of anybody selling them?
  18. Oakhill Bowling Club presents an evening of Soul and Motown with Nick Marshall (ex BBC Radio Stoke and 6 Towns Radio). 8.30 till midnight. Free admission, everyone welcome, real ale on hand pull.
  19. I wondered if it might be him, given that he wrote and produced it, but the two voices don’t sound at all similar to my ears
  20. I just listened to Azie Mortimer’s version of “You can’t take it away “ and there’s a male voice duetting who sounds to me a lot like Jerry Butler. Anyone know who it is?
  21. I think it’s actually Texas Southern University. One of their Ovide releases features a live version of “Nothing can stop me” and you hear the MC announce them as “Tor o na does”. I wondered why he pronounced it that way, checked the label and realised I’d misread their name for decades
