    Finding Soul In Later Years

    Got into it during the early 90's also, Finding those 2nd hand copies of Goldmine/Soul, Kent UK, Charly R&B compilation LP's at Reckless Records and other record stores. Those track lists eventually became my want lists! Also Books like "The illustrated encyclopedia of Black Music" "Nightshift by Pete McKenna" "Soul Survivors by Russ Winstanley & David Nowell" and years later, Dare I say...."Top 500 by Kev Roberts" take care Aret
  3. Besides the three records by The Specials "Everybody say yea"(sa 512), "Baby you need me"(sa 514) & "I can't find another"(sa 515), Were there any other releases by the Specials or other artists/groups on this label. If so, What were they? thanks in advance! Aret

    New Member Intro

    Hello Everyone, I don't think I've done one of these yet so here it goes....My Name is Aret Sakalian I'm 40 years young and I got into this sound in early to mid 90's through compilation LP from Kent/Goldmine Soul Supply/ Charly R&B. And eventually those track lists turned into my want lists. Me and a few friends run a monthly night in Chicago called Windy City Soul Club. I been on here for a while just reading the forums and getting educated by those that laid down the foundation of the scene. Here is the link to Windy City Soul Clubs Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Windy-City-Soul-Club/197781323366 If any of you are ever in chicago you are more then welcome to visit our night. click the "like" button on our page for future dates and other events. Thank you kindly. Aret
