    Darrow Fletcher Secret Weapon

    At Last - Out On Kent Select 45 26th October 2018 The nights are drawing in and the fall is not too far away! So to brighten a dreary Autumn, we have something very special on the horizon. Darrow Fletcher’s superb ‘(Love Is My) Secret Weapon’ written by Grey and Hanks with Jerry Butler and recorded in Los Angeles in the 70’s is a true in demander, folk have been hankering for, for many years. It’s a track that’s been central in my every set since the heady ‘Just Soul’ nights of 2011. A ‘modern stomper’ in classic style and with immediate appeal which has graced dance floor’s as diverse as Soul Essence, Great Yarmouth, The Windsor Suite, Stoke and London’s famous 100 Club! It certainly covers a lot of bases and pleases all camps, totally across the board. ‘Secret Weapon’ has a very different feel to his earlier, Chicago recordings. It was to have been included in a previously unreleased Darrow Fletcher album, which eventually saw the light of day on an excellent Kent compilation, back in 2012; CrossOver Soul: 1975-1979 Los Angeles Sessions. Still available on AceRecords.co.uk Coming your way on a shiny new Kent Select 45, scheduled for end October 2018. Backed with the brassy ‘How Can You Live’ it’s something to look forward to, and an absolute essential for those looking for a killer Soul track for the dancefloor.

    YOUR AUTUMN OF TOMORROW

    Hi John, yes that's quite right. What I was saying is Bill Downs involvement with the Crow record was only relating to Right On. The Inner Ear 45 was certainly given to Dave directly by Stan Vincent.

    YOUR AUTUMN OF TOMORROW

    Dave Godin was given his copy of The Crow directly by Stan Vincent as a virtual new release. In the back of my mind Dave told me he was given it personally in Stan's flat / house in New York. It did not come from Bill Downs. Dave had had the record for several years before he started pushing it around UK / Northern clubs and writing about it in depth (in BM, B&S etc.). He believed the scene wasn't ready for it before then. Bill Downs involvement was only via Right On several years later, although Dave and he had known one another for years. Bill Downs had strong links to Chris Bartley, and Sam Nesbit, Greg Carmichael etc. via his long standing association with Dave Kapralik (the man who made all those Okeh, Columbia, Epic 45's possible) so it's easy to assume it came from Bill, but certainly the 45 was given to Dave directly from Stan Vincent. Sean
  8. Thanks both. We certainly intend to. Lots in the pipeline. Cheers, Sean
  9. INTRODUCING THE UK’S LATEST SOUL RECORD LABEL, DIGGIN’ DEEP RECORDS - OUT 13th JULY 2018 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! Can You Dig It? And here's the first ‘Diggin’ Deep’ Limited Edition 45! Release Date 13th July 2018 Available To Pre-Order from 2nd July 2018! DD 001A Willie Walker ‘Two Paces Ahead Of Love” DD 001B Barbara Brown ‘It Hurts Me So Much' Our first release joins together two stalwarts of the Southern Soul scene, stemming from Sounds of Memphis records. The ‘A’ side is a scorching mid-tempo, Deep Soul stepper from the legendary Willie Walker. A ‘crossover soul’ track which has already proven itself on the floor at such progressive venues as Soul Essence and Diggin’ Deep. We believe that “Two Paces Ahead Of Love” will become a firm dancefloor favourite on its very first vinyl issue. Flip it over and we present the most stunning Deep Soul ballad from Barbara and the Browns. This track has long been revered by the Deep Soul fraternity and “It Hurts Me So Much” is considered by many to be one of the finest unissued ‘Deepies’ to come out of Memphis! 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. Pre-order ON WEBSITE ONLY now, while stocks last https://www.diggin-deep.com/ Note: Only one copy per person. First come, first served Cheers, Sean Hampsey | Kev Briscoe | Diggin' Deep

    Rhonda Davis - Long Walk On A Short Pier

    A couple of us used to play 'Touch Me Up' late '70's , early 80's. It was always a bit too 'DISCO' for my liking although she was a prety good vocalist. I never connected her to Rhonda Davis in any way, but it's not beyond the realm to think it could be Rhonda Washington, though Hot Sauce would have ceased to exist at Stax / Volt 4-5 years prior.

    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
  15. 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 ardent aficionado. It only takes an hour, to get a taste of over 40 killer tracks so give it a whirl! Enjoy! Sean https://www.mixcloud.com/seanhampsey/another-taste-of-diggin-deep/
