    take a look inside-The Supremes

    Was a regular spin for me at Just Soul Wayne. Funnily enough I had it on in my car the other week when Binsy was with me and his ears pricked up! Lovely record mate. Jean Terrell vocal is sublime. Sean

    JUST A NOTE TO THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW DEAN JOHNSON

    Best wishes Dean. Get well soon mate. Sean
  4. Sick of the same old same old, here's an hour of quality 'underplayed' and unreleased music from some of the greatest voices in Soul: Lenny Williams, Earl Wright, George Jackson, Johnny Gilliam, Eddie & Ernie, LJ Reynolds, Willie Hutch, Vernon Garrett, Soul Stirrers, Dells and Eddie Parker. Accent on this one is more on the mid-tempo side, but still a few sweet, deep and low-rider goodies in there to satisfy even the most ar..
  5. I consider that a resounding endorsement Robin and will be sure to use it in my future publicity. With your permission, of course
  6. Yes mate - But just supply me the names and I'll put them down to pay on door. OK? Sean
  7. July 1st Andy feat Arlene Soulera 5150 from LA! Are you around? Sean
  8. Hi there, The venue "The Red Lion" is a Hotel and Restaurant and serves good food all day and evening! See you there. Sean
  9. Thank you Robin. Hope you're all well old mate. Sean
  10. Here's a link to the 'Diggin' Deep One' Mixcloud - A taste of our playlist at Diggin' Deep, Sheffield. Should be just right for a scorching weekend. I hope you're sitting down! Enjoy!

  11. Just read a report on the recent passing of the great Johnny Daye. His excellent 'What I'll Do For Satisfaction' and 'Stay Baby Stay' are amongst my favourite Stax 45's. Rest in Peace.

    Clifton Hall

    The 'scene' was on 'life support' Chalky. Wigan was on its way out. The Mecca, Cleggy and Samanthas had all gone, along with all those other great venues of the early and mid 70's. Clifton Hall was the last chance saloon. And it was incredible. Number one with a bullet. I hardly ever missed a nighter, at the time, despite professionally DJing most weekends. Then working at the Windmill on a Sunday, ..
  13. Hi Nick, sorry only just seen this. It was a great alnighter early days. I played both upstairs (60's / Northern) and downstairs (Modern) which made it a very long night for me. Pretty tough shift as I was newlywed at the time and my weekends were stuffed and the pressure was on as the Mrs wasn't really on the 'niter' scene at the time. Upstairs I would play such diverse and mysterious things as: Quotations -..

    Maxine Brown It's Torture

    Ady confirmed that the Kent single was the first time the track had appeared on a 45. The LP was its first vinyl release - therefore the original vinyl release - but as Ady said, nobody would expect you to lug around an LP simply because it was 6 months before. That'd be ridiculous. Some of this OVO stuff is a real joke, you know folks. High time we started talking about musical merit, rather than media and format..

    OTIS CLAY - NOTHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO - Secret Stash 45

    I played it off this Japanese LP as a 'previously unreleased' track for over 10 years: https://www.discogs.com/Otis-Clay-The-Beginning-Got-To-Find-A-Way/release/5513775 But it was nice to get my hands on the 45 when it eventually came through. A stunning record, every bit as good as his 'better known' One-der-ful sides. Sean
