    Alfie Davison - Love Is Serious Business

    Thanks Pete - indeed it is..........
  2. Alfie Davison - Love Is Serious Business On offer here is an original, Sterling Sound acetate of the 12” version of this classic. The other side is blank. It comes in the original file cover and is in excellent condition having been barely played since I got it some years ago. Both the 7 and 12” versions of this command high prices due to rarity but this is surely a one off! A true collectors item. I’m taking of..

    Any soul nights in Berlin

    ​Hi Dave, I guess I am the "someone I know" then!!!! Yes, I am back and hopefully will see you soon. I trust the SHS night and crew are all doing well? I'm in Leamington Spa now by the way - a bit different from Berlin & Kuala Lumpur!!!! Brian, I have a feeling we know each other too? Anyway, yes I was in Berlin for almost 3 years and it is a brilliant city with plenty to see and do, very interesting. Soul wise, it has a b..

    Gary Welsh R.i.p

    I knew Gary later rather than earlier and he became a friend and confidant. A source of great knowledge, humour and passion not just for music but for life itself. I remember double decking with him at Karen's 40th. We had a blast........... I will miss him but mostly I will regret the contact and the phone calls I never made, that is my loss. Very sincere condonlences to all the family, John.

    Soul People In Berlin?

    Hi, I shall be working in Berlin for the next few months and wondered if there were any soul people over here that I could meet up with? Drop me a pm if so. Thanks, John.
  12. :lol: Well I'm not sure if two of us makes a "crew" but yes, we were there in force! Glad you liked it although I should point out that JP was firmly in the driving seat for that particular set................ We had a great time and loved every minute - tiredness and lager took it's toll I'm afraid and led to a rather grouchy drive home, survived it though (almost)!!! Loved the photo of Brett and me, I wonder if you remem..

    Horse And Groom Doncaster

    Well, just got home after a weekend of soul and still thrilled at the opportunity to DJ at the Horse & Groom. Yep, I was nervous but settled right in thanks to the friendly, knowledgeable and appreciative crowd. Having guested at Darnall Horti, Sheffield on Friday it was great to be able to play two sets of a totally different nature. Many thanks for asking me to DJ, it was a pleasure and one for the book I'll probably never..
