  • A brief intro...
    Ska and reggae lover first and foremost, got into soul in the early 90s when I wondered who "C.Mayfield" was on writing credits on a few of my JA 45s.  Got an Impressions album, the rest is history.

  1. I was in A1 Records in the East Village a few years ago. Nothing rare but picked up a nice pile of cheapies for $2 to $5 each that often sell for $5 to $20 elsewhere.
  2. Hi mate, I'd be interested if I can get someone to bring me down for them. Cheers Gordy
  3. Going to have a trawl through these. Just had a look at your playlists and anyone who plays Althea and Donna in the same set as Danny Oliver's "Sapphire" is walking down the same musical street as myself. My first love is 60s and 70s Jamaican music, then 40s and 50s R&B, Northern Soul, Deep Soul, Blues et al. Going to check out Johnny's show too. Wynonie Harris and the Black Pumas in the same set. Sorted.
  4. Early 90s I was listening to Queen Majesty by The Techniques. Now before you go saying "but that's a Jamaican rock steady 45", please allow me to continue I went into a record shop in Newcastle Upon Tyne (I lived in Northumberland at the time) and said to the bloke "have you got anything else like this?". He said they had more Jamaican stuff in but maybe I'd like to hear the original soul version of QM? He put on an Impressions album with "Minstrel And Queen" on and the rest is history. I started off liking classic "regular" soul and over the past almost 30 years have got deeper and deeper (including deep soul!).
  5. Hi, do you have an actual URL for the stream so that I can add you onto my Roberts 93i internet radio in my favourites? Thanks!
  6. Thought some might like this. Almost two hours of some of my favourite female soul, R&B and popcorn records, mostly early stuff. https://www.mixcloud.com/gordy-robertson/dj-greedy-g-presents-sassy-soul-sisters/
  7. Not just DJing, several record shops have had stuff stolen too. There's a long thread on Facebook about it, won't post names here but if you look you'll see who one of the main culprits is.
  8. I've got around 400 soul 45s. 90% originals and some legit reissues. I have never been in the position to afford records that cost hundreds or thousands of pounds but I've still got a nice little collection of 45s that cost me between a fiver and around 40 quid. No excuse to buy bootlegs.
  9. Above photos are Port Alcudia beach, some shots of Alcudia Old Town, second one down is the view from our room and last photo is looking down "the strip" where most of the bars, restaurants and shops are. Weather was between 25 and 30C all week long. Got a couple of litre bottles of decent Ron Barcelo rum for 14 Euros each too, result! Apparently there was a soul bar in Alcudia once but a bloke I got talking to in another bar said it had closed down.
  10. Some photos from my recent week in Alcudia, Majorca with the missus. Was good to get away and it's a beautiful place but we chose a hotel popular with young drunken lads and lasses so spent two days on my return catching up on sleep! Next time we're choosing a quieter place. Anyway, onto the photos.
  11. Only met the man a few times in person but chatted a lot online. A top top bloke and can't believe he's gone. He even got me to appreciate some modern tunes, which as a die hard "gritty" soul and funk fan took some doing! May He rest well.
  12. A wonderful DJ and a wonderful man who has time for everyone on the scene, old and new.
  13. A1 Records in the East Village had some nice cheap stuff in for a few dollars. 45s at $2 to $5 that might cost £10 or so in the UK but I didn't see anything rare.
