  • 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. 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!
  2. 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/
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. As for ones that you wish you'd never heard. Take one of Jamaica's most underrated vocal groups, The Silvertones. Put the legendary Coxsone Dodd at the production console. Cover The Invitations' "What's Wrong With Me Baby" and unleash an abomination onto the world that sounds like the theme from Supermarket Sweep or summat. Thank God I can't find it on YouTube.
  8. 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.
  9. A wonderful DJ and a wonderful man who has time for everyone on the scene, old and new.
  10. 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.
  11. Thanks Russ - we'll be going on Wednesday morning, the 24th of this month and coming back on the Friday afternoon the 26th (my actual birthday). Last time I was there, Cafe Batavia near the Central station had some soul stuff as background music and the bitterballen were decent too, so might head there again. Not after expensive tunes, got about 250 euros to spend and want to get at least a handful of records for that. Will make a list of a few places, we're staying across from the station, not far from the aforementioned Cafe Batavia. HA! Where's my glasses, I just noticed your night is at the Cafe Batavia
  12. Just to add, I'm a fan of the vintage type stuff coming out nowadays and the last great album I bought was the Ben Pirani "How Do I Talk To My Brother". So anywhere selling stuff like that, thanks!
  13. Going to Amsterdam for a few days for my 50th. A treat from my younger brother, all I have to pay for are my records. Speaking of which, are there any good places to pick up new release 45s/LPs there? Last time I was there a few years ago I visited Backbeat which used to be owned by the great Arthur Conley of course but I found it to be a bit pricey. Also any dedicated soul bars or clubs? We'll be going midweek, as that's my brother's regular days off work plus one holiday day he booked. Cheers.
