  4. ANNOUNCING DIGGIN’ DEEP RECORDS NEWEST RELEASE! PURE SOUTHERN SOUL FROM MUSCLE SHOALS! PRE ORDER NOW FOR 23rd NOVEMBER 2018 Can You Dig It? DD 003A Tony Borders ‘Promise To Myself’ DD 003B Bill Brandon ‘Rainbow Road’ www.diggin-deep.com Our newest 45 is a double sider that Diggin’ Deep are extremely proud to be able to bring to you. Two stunning sides, each with a very different flavour, though both are classic ‘Muscle Shoals’ soul tracks, emanating from Quin Ivy’s famous Quinvy Sound Studio in Sheffield, Alabama, USA. The topside is a unique, midtempo, crossover Soul gem from Tony Borders, long revered by collectors of Northern, Crossover and Southern Soul alike! “Promise To Myself” is a side which has received huge appreciation for many years, at the most discerning soul music venues, worldwide. Copies are in the hands of the very few, and there simply aren’t enough to go around. This exclusive Diggin’ Deep issue is its first release in almost 40 years and should go some small way to meeting the demand for this indispensible dance floor gem. Out now for a very limited time on vinyl 45. The flipside is an epic tale, long regarded as a true Deep Soul masterpiece. Diggin’ Deep are honoured to be able to bring you Bill Brandon’s absolutely colossal ‘Rainbow Road’ as the latest addition to our catalogue. It’s an anthemic tale of poverty, fame, and tragedy, penned by Donnie Fritts and Dan Penn and understood to have been written for Arthur Alexander - although Brandon’s is the original released version, recorded in 1968, some three years earlier than Arthur’s Warner Brothers LP track. Take a few minutes to listen to the promo video. Soul music simply doesn’t get much better than this. An entire life story in just three minutes. A record that every Deep Soul fan needs to have in their collection. We are sure this double sider will be a welcome issue for lovers of the deeper side of soul – and be seen as a fitting tribute to the legendary Sheffield studio, Quinvy. Both sides are now available on a beautifully mastered 45 for the first time in over 40 years. DD003 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: www.diggin-deep.com Note: Only one copy per person. First come, first served. Diggin’ Deep Records - 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 of titles are already lined up for 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.

    Dean Anderson's Sound of Soul, Thursday 8pm.

    Thanks Chalky, much appreciated. Managed to get to play the new CJ & Co and Joe Matthews Diggin' Deep 45's on the show, for anyone who's curious! Enjoy, Sean
  8. Link here for Dean Anderson's show last week where I played both sides. Enjoy! Sean
  9. Thanks Andy. I'm sure your listeners will love both sides. Cheers mate, Sean
  10. Thank you so much. You're a man of great taste! Sean
  11. Thank you. I hope you'll enjoy the whole thing. It won't be around for long so a very wise purchase. Sean

  13. ANNOUNCING DIGGIN’ DEEP RECORDS NEW RELEASE! DOUBLE DETROIT DYNAMITE! - PRE ORDER NOW FOR 5th OCTOBER 2018 Can You Dig It? DD 002A CJ & Co ‘Let Them Talk’ DD 002B Joe Matthews ‘What Every Little Girl Needs' Our newest 45 release is a real turn up for the books - It's Double Detroit Soul Dynamite! Who would have thought, a stunningly soulful track from such doyens of the US DISCO scene, CJ & Co, ably supported on the flipside by the legendary Joe Matthews. The ‘A’ side is a fabulous, midtempo, 70’s soul stepper from C J & Co, produced by Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey in Detroit! “Let Them Talk” is a killer modern soul track which has received massive appreciation wherever it’s been played during the past 12 months. It’s a ‘slipping around’ love song with a fabulous hook that will grab everyone from the get go. And the vocals are simply wonderful! All who have heard it agree, it’s uncanny that something of this sublime quality could have only recently shown up, some 40 years after it was recorded. We believe that “Let Them Talk” will become a huge dancefloor favourite on this very first issue, in any format, anywhere in the world! Out now for a very limited time on vinyl 45. The 'B' side is different gravy, but has the same quality Detroit Pedigree. Joe Matthews ‘What Every Little Girl Needs’ is a mythological Westbound soul release. It is such a rare record that its existence is open to debate. The release number for the single is documented as Westbound 146 but we’re pretty certain that it never came out. It actually had a ZTSC matrix number recorded with it, which means that its manufacture was ordered and the pressing plant had allocated the number, but until now, this mystery single has never appeared. ‘What Every Little Girl Needs’ is a fabulous ‘crossover soul’ track of the highest order and something that every Detroit Soul fan must have in the collection. Both sides are now available on a beautifully mastered 45 for the very first time. This collector’s release is a limited pressing @ just £12 each plus postage and packing. Avoid Disappointment.
