    first three records to start a set

    Each to their own, that’s a good one too though... to be fair the OP didn’t specify a northern soul night so you probably wouldn’t have been there in the first place!

    first three records to start a set

    Couldn't agree more! It's vital. Yep, me too. Although as far as my DJing goes (well went) it was always music first, mixing second. I used to work out mixes in small sections (maybe 3 or 4 records) and then mix and match those sections as needed, luckily I also had the ability to improvise if the crowd seemed more receptive to something I played in particular. I always thought great music was most important, it does add an extra dimension if the DJ can do something exciting with them. Anyway, back to the original question, obviously it depends on what sort of night it is, what part of the night, but I'd always start with guaranteed dance floor bombs to announce my arrival and get everyone on the floor.... Jimmy Castor - It's just begun - Mighty Ryders - Evil Vibrations - Locksmith - Far Beyond The northern soul fans might be heading for the doors though!

    Record in Retention at Post Office??

    I bought an LP from Japan a couple of weeks ago... from payment... to dispatch... to my front door .... five days. And it was easily NM not VG+ as described. Happy days.

    SpaceArk Albums re-released by Mr. Bongo worldwide

    I was just listening to the sound clips last night... there's some really good tracks on there.

    Help required

    I've got SL1200's which I bought for DJing 20 odd years ago - You won't get a more solid turntable. I think if I was buying one turntable for home use though I would probably get something else like the Thorens. That's nice...... But I'd prefer Biz Markie's...... https://smileradio.net/en/tech-and-gadgets/spotted-7-technics-sl-700-turntable-wild

    Eumir Deodato - Percepção

    Bit of a long shot, given it's not soul. But I'm looking for a copy of this on vinyl. Ta.

    Does anyone like the B side to this? I do, but it's very strange, it goes from crap to awesome to crap to brilliant again. I think it's Joe singing isn't it... if so, he's got a voice more suitable for instrumentals.

    Your Top Jazz Tracks?

    A nice track featuring a young Joe Zawinul. Unfortunately I've only got a shortened version on 45............ another LP to add to the want list...

    Steady on chaps. Put the "Yes" albums away and listen to some proper "head" music....

    Your Top Jazz Tracks?

    Good choice! Although I would of gone for "People make the world go round". I had this on the deck last night...

    Afrobeat, Afrofunk....and all that sort of thing

    Picked this one up in a junk shop for £2 because it looked interesting. It's a afrobeat / latin hybrid but check out the personnel... Ron Carter, Billy Cobham, Ray Barretto, Bob Cranshaw, etc.

    Your Top Jazz Tracks?

    Regarding earlier conversations in the thread.... I received my Idris Muhammad "Power of Soul" yesterday.... wow. I'm going to stick my neck out and say it's my favourite Bob James outing, and my favourite Grover Washington stuff, and my favourite Kudu release. With good pair of headphones and a relaxing "cigarette" it blew my mind. Cheers Themroc. Regarding the merits of Stanley Clarke who was discussed earlier, I just thought I'd mention that he's responsible for the heavy bassline on the Charles Rouse track I posted. Here's a nice 2017 release from Finland. Puts me in mind of my favourite era of Blue Note records.....
