  1. Posting removed as edits now made to my original entry. Thanks to Scootboy for correcting video positions on page.
  2. Original posting edited to now read as follows: Four Flights: I just played my 12" of Four Flights and to anyone thinking of buying a copy I hope the pressing is better than mine, it's an original mint copy but both sides sound muffled. Tried with 2 different models of styli, neither enjoyed the experience! The same track appears on the flip of Let's Do It by Convertion, however having just played both the Four Flights and this, I now realise they are the same recording except FF is 4.28, Convertion 6.15 [Just timed them]. A note on Discogs states Dunn Pearson did not give permission to Sam Records to release the track on their label. Anyone know if Four Flights were a group or just a random name used for the release? Thanks
  3. Posting removed as I now see you've posted a wants list of titles sought after by many others on here in the wants section.
  4. That's until you have tinnitus as I do which is a life changing experience when it's permanent. Sadly long term there's nothing clever about unnecessarily loud music as I have found to my expense over the years especially when it becomes a too regular experience. Excessive volume when using headphones at home was the main cause of my hearing sensitivity. Too many DJ's place speakers right next to their working environment, the decks, thereby having no accurate idea of how loud the volume outgoing is from being behind it. I usually place speakers towards me from the back of the room if I have long enough cables, noting it's easier to mix with this arrangement as well. With that set up I'm fully aware of precisely how loud it is and if I feel uncomfortable so will the customers. Play music too loud and people cannot sit down and talk in comfort. Not everyone wants to dance for several hours. Reduce the socialising opportunities and you'll lose a number of customers for follow up functions, guaranteed. It's remarkable what equipment you can use in relation to amplification in small venues. For years I have gone mixer to NAD 3240PE hi fi amp, then through a disco amp [which only has volume settings]. That set up has never let me down and sound quality is excellent.
  5. The "New Dimension" LP on Capitol 1982 is my favourite Dramatics LP. I see it's also been reissued on Expansion CD. Here's the best 4 tracks IMO all with BPM shown [as played it so many times], just in case you have it and are thinking of working the tracks into a set. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjVRJrz6-6I I Don't Want To Lose Your Love [66.7] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgWycYwEEBg Treat me Right [78.3] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xf8Gy5UAgGc I Believe In You [106.8] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncUn2ot5dj8 My Kind Of Girl [107.5 Mostly]
  6. https://www.google.co.uk/search?rlz=1C1AFAB_enGB478GB479&q=micky+gynn+images&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj9i7jvserhAhXfVRUIHe8FB-kQ7Al6BAgJEBE&biw=1280&bih=881 Pre-season looks as if it might have been a bit too hot in this one? Any recollections?
  7. Ken, did you finish the project with the recycled speaker boxes?
  8. Yes it's a phone handset, used for cueing up records. It's wired into a standard jack plug.
  9. How sad that Kool & The Gang song has been licensed for an advertisement for a company that are absolute fking scum.
  10. I kept quiet about this yesterday as I was waiting for reactions as I thought CCCC had entered those comments as a joke. 24 hours later and with no other entries about the song I'll ask the question, are you serious? As soon as I heard the track on the Youtube clip I laughed, it's an old time music hall song which has been recorded by countless artists since 1928. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Can't_Give_You_Anything_but_Love,_Baby Assuming you're old enough surely you must have heard it back in the early 70's on the radio in the same sets as Sing Something Simple and My Old Man's A Dustman? What's your next "Newly found new sound overlooked beauty on YT?" This by any chance? LOL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfmAeijj5cM
  11. As evidence of that here's an image of the track still maintaining local appeal two years later as one their club legends @micky gynnputs on a half time display of how to move to the track under the watchful eyes of Manchester City's Steve MacKenzie.
  12. I expect some of you will have seen this LP in the 80's and 90's and not paid any attention to it, after all let's be honest the artwork is hardly eye catching. Using the artist name Brand New Funk, this is Wood Brass & Steel/The Sugarhill label band, thus Doug Wimbish on bass [not drums as wrongly stated on the sleeve]. "Tastee" is exactly as the title suggests and is a monumental JF toe tapper. One other fierce track on the LP, the vocal cut "Classic Funk" which is also as suggested but beware, starts loud https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBSG--xiLHs
  13. Thanks, sounded good, strangely enough I don't think I'd ever had a copy of that LP, got one now though off a mate.
