  1. There's another one of hers on Abet where they mucked the label / b-side up.

  2. neiljon31, This was in a pub on a weekday on the outskirts of Maidstone in the 70s. There's something charming and ridiculous about starting your set in that context in such a grandiose fashion that is just brilliant. He was a good dj though, she says.

  3. My other half who was mad on jazz funk in the 70s and still is, was telling me about some conference league level pub dj in Kent who always started his set with this one. Excellent!

  4. Remember this far out classic? ...and then this further out classic, obviously influenced by it?

  5. Just spotted this. Only became aware of this version recently and I think its even better than Bottom & Co. Maybe of interest to people like me for whom an original is a crazy dream... https://acidjazz.bigcartel.com/product/patterson-twins-gonna-find-a-true-love-7

  6. Quite. The article I posted also explains why digital copies are no good. This is like saying, 'Its okay The Louvre burnt down, we took pics.'

  7. The New York Times article that broke this story is a great read and raises wider, and worrying, questions about the attitude of the corporate owners of recorded music's attitude to their archives... https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/11/magazine/universal-fire-master-recordings.html

  11. Dunno. I bought this LP on Columbia myself when very young and got caught out thinking it would have the original recording of, 'Comin' Home Baby' on it only to find it was a later, inferior remake on the LP. So maybe they were still trying to somehow cash in on the hit version of that (with Right Now on b-side) a few years later? There was already been an LP called 'Comin' Home Baby' on Atlantic so that was taken....(he speculated) Michael - 'Power of Love' is originally 7" only, I believe, not on this LP. Also had this coincidentally on UK around the same but never really rated it. The other side of that by Mel ('Dominique's Discotheque') is almost as lame as it sounds but there's a very decent indeed 'northern' version of it on one of Sarah Vaughan's LP's. Ramble, ramble...

  12. Hope this is the right place for this. Gil Scott Heron with his original college band Black & Blues (although I think I'm right in saying these were recorded during or just after the 'Pieces of a Man' sessions). These have been out as bonus tracks on a CD of 'Pieces' for a couple years but brand new on 7" thanks to Ace. Both sides superb. I doubt a better 7 will come along this year!
