  1. Always believed it’s a typo. Should be Carolyn. But turns out Harolyn is a Christian name, as unfamiliar as it may sound. Always loved this 45 and always just saw it as a bad typo. But now I’m not so sure.
  2. You may already know mate, but just in case, most Karen Small Venus copies are mispresses and don't play the track. Best bet is the UK Vocalion press which is always correct Cheers, Sean

  5. ANNOUNCING DIGGIN’ DEEP RECORDS NEWEST RELEASE! TWO SUPERB SLICES OF GROUP SOUL! THE NEWEST ‘DIGGIN’ DEEP’ LIMITED EDITION 45 RELEASE DATE FRIDAY 4th OCTOBER 2019 AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER FROM 23rd SEPTEMBER 2019! Can You Dig It? DD 008A - The Radiations “That’s The Way (Our Love Is)” DD 008B - The Lovers “When You’re Poor” It is with great pleasure that we announce the latest Diggin’ Deep 45. A pair of excellent group Soul tracks, available to pre order on 23rd September 2019. The top side, ‘That’s The Way (Our Love Is)’ is a blistering, midtempo, number from The Radiations, a New York based vocal group, famed for their much loved 1969 outing on Valise ‘Love Be Not a Stranger’. This previously unissued record has been very well received by lovers of group and ‘crossover’ soul whenever it’s been played out. It’s bound to be a winner in discerning soul circles. The Radiations were one of a stable of artists that New York producer David Blake worked with which included the Quotations, Frank Dell, The Headliners, Jackie Owens and Johnny Watson on Valise. They were all based around New York and this fine midtempo treasure is an example of soul group singing at its best. The flipside ‘When You’re Poor’ from The Lovers is another ‘previously unreleased on vinyl’ number, written and arranged by Arthur Wright. Following its discovery and inclusion in the bestselling compilation ‘This Is Lowrider Soul’ last year, the track has become hugely appreciated across the USA, Europe and beyond by lovers of sweet and group soul music. The Lovers were stationed at the Deal Air Force base in northern California and had releases on Vardan as The Emotions and Philips as The Lovers, and later on Minit, Boola-Boola and Fantasy recording as the Pacesetters. This Diggin’ Deep 45 is the first vinyl release from the group in over 40 years. Take a listen to a minute of each side on the video: Both tracks are now available on a beautifully mastered vinyl 45. DD008 collector’s release is a limited pressing @ just £12 each plus postage and packing. Avoid Disappointment. Pre-order ON WEBSITE ONLY now, while stocks last: https://www.diggin-deep.com Diggin’ Deep Records – Sheffield, England. Making available a series of excellent Soul recordings from the 60’s and 70’s, most of which will be released as a limited edition 45 for the very first time, and the occasional, carefully selected, re-issue. Dozens more titles are already lined up for limited future release. Keep informed by collecting the vinyl, joining the mailing list, visiting the website and social media pages regularly and ensure you’re among the first to know! Avoid Disappointment.

  7. THE NEWEST ‘DIGGIN’ DEEP’ LIMITED EDITION 45 Two superb sides dedicated to the memory of our old friend Dave Godin. Showcasing the talents of two artist’s he championed: Joan Bates (AKA Jaibi) AND Larry Banks! Can You Dig It? DD 007A Jaibi ‘It Was Like A Nightmare’ DD 007B Lawrence & Jaibi ‘You Make Me Feel Good ’ This is the latest Diggin’ Deep 45, available to pre order on what would have been Dave’s 83rd birthday. It is no exaggeration to say that Dave was one of the most influential, if somewhat controversial, figures on the UK Soul scene. He will mainly be remembered for promoting Tamla Motown in this country and coining the terms ‘Northern’ and ‘Deep’ Soul. No mean feat! His contribution to ‘Soul Journalism’ was exceptional and his ability to unearth or exposure underrated talent was legendary. Both Joan Bates and Larry Banks were artists very dear to Dave. It’s no exaggeration to say that their musical legacy would be ‘lost’ to many of us if it wasn’t for him. Both these tracks are from the GWP production team out of New York which included Larry Banks. Banks was responsible for bringing acts such as Kenny Carter, The Exciters and The Dynamics to the fold as well as recording himself and his then wife, Joan Bates. The ‘A’ side, ‘It Was Like A Nightmare’ was written by Joan and Larry Banks and we feel it is a typical ‘Dave Godin side’. Taken just below mid-tempo it’s the familiar tale of a ‘lover’s triangle’; a well-used idiom for some of the very best Soul records. Our heroine is at the alter waiting to take her vows but has she got the man of dreams? One thing is for certain, the indecision is giving her nightmares! Whatever the outcome, she is definitely with the man of her choice on the flipside, ‘You Make Me Feel Good’. This was co-written by Zerben Hicks and a version by the Dynamics was issued on the flip of his magnificent opus ‘Lights Out’. Quite why this superior version remained in-the-can is a mystery and was beautifully described by Dave himself: “Working with an escalating intensity and depth, their gospel-based question and response technique, takes the record to dizzying heights of brilliance” Now if that doesn’t whet your appetite and have you eager to own this music on a 45, nothing will! Please take a few minutes to listen to the promotional video. We hope you’ll agree, this great double-header is a 45 that every Soul fan will want to have in their collection. Both sides are now available on a beautifully mastered 45. DD007 collector’s release is a limited pressing @ just £12 each plus postage and packing. Avoid Disappointment.

The latest 45 is another superb double-sider that Diggin’ Deep are extremely proud to be able to bring to you. Two tremendous Soul sides, each with a different flavour, though both are classic ‘Southern Soul’ tracks, emanating from the legendary Sound of Birmingham Studios, Alabama, USA.

This particular cut was edited for a single release, which never saw the light of day on vinyl, that is until now. The record has been a dancefloor smash for a very long time. DJ’s who have enjoyed playing the track from the LP over the years will treasure this fabulous DJ / Radio edit on vinyl 45. On the flipside is the demo of Sam Dees stunning Soul ballad, ‘Tag Tag’ written for Bill Brandon on Piedmont Records back in ‘76. This is yet another gem previously unreleased on vinyl until now. Take a few minutes to watch and listen to the video. Youtube music video below This exclusive Diggin’ Deep issue is its first ever release as a single and is out now for a very limited time on one of our special edition vinyl 45’s.

    Unmissable weekender. Can hardly wait Sean
  12. Interesting that Andy, Masboro area was certainly more Rocker than Mod, so choosing flight was definitely the best option. You'd have been made a lot more welcome in Mod Town Kimberworth, just up the road. Sean
