    New Cd Out Monday Same Old Same Old

    This might get new people into Northern soul but they could have brought other older comps without the need for a new one to be released. All i think is that it's people trying to jump on the bandwagon and cash in with some money. Also as someone pointed out here if people hear this CD for first time and go to a Northern soul night a lot of these won't be played. As for Levanna being the face of Northern soul. She seems nice enough but i would wish people allow other young soulies to be featured too because i feel that it will get to the point where everytime they need someone to be on a CD cover, interviewed on TV, featured as dancing to Northern soul or whatever then it will just be Levanna and no one else which to be isn't fair. Not that i would want to be featured since i am not as good looking at her.

    Soul & Motown Nights

    don't normally go to these but have Dj-ed at one mind you i was on first so snuck in a lot of stuff not expected at the night. Might aswell not have soul and motown nights instead just call it oldies night for anyone into 50's - 80's music they might like pop aswell and stuff.

    Northern Soul Artists

    If in terms of who made is commercially away from Northern soul then Candi Staton, Sam Cooke, the Driffters. All of which made either 1 or only a few Northern soul to turn it round you also have Jackie Wilson who made a big lot of success for Northern soul tracks aswell as commercial music

    Multi Room Events

    well any venue i go 2 with 2 rooms i only stay in the oldies and wish they wouldn't play any Modern in it, not that i hate modern just love 60's more. I doubt i would attend a modern all nighter either.

    Loleatta Holloway Rip

    Not been here in a while but what sad news for a great soul artist especially in the late 70's and 80's. Black Box did a great job with her sample on there track

    i have never heard it in Peterborough, only Kirk Franklin which is massive although that seems to have been played less last year

    Good Old Record Shops

    There is a place in Peterborough House of the Boardeline down some allyway near tattoo place that sells records here. Been here years, has loads of old soul/funk LP's and Motown usually sold by condition. So if you get an LP for £5 and same one he selling for £10 it will be based on condition. I saw he only had record collector price guide from 2000 and hadn't updated it. Mind you i asked once if he had any Northern soul singles, was told no yet as i was browsing the normal selection of soul singles there was at least 5 and about 5 in the Atlantic/staxx section there were Northern ie LJ Johnson, Jimmy James - A Man Like Me, Frankie Valli - You're Ready Now etc. Maybe more if i knew some of the titles, Maybe he don't have a clue what is what

    How Long Will N.soul Last

    fact is you can say it will carry on but there's a problem. your going to a venue now say with 100 people attending and you see 5 people under 30. and you think if that is the case what happens in years to come will it be a venue for Northern soul with 10 people attending and the ones who are 20/30 are now 50/60 and they don't see anyone who is under 40 coming.

    Cee Lo Green - Old Fashioned

    well i think he is soul-full and just because he was part of some rap group dosen't mean he is bad, I like him and the single is great

    Record Rooms

    i can't show you ouyr dpare room of records since is it a top and needs sorting. I have been known that people can see a whole loads of CD's in background when i do you tube videos. That's my cd singles and only part of them i have shelfs of over 4,000 cd singles collected over the years of all music genres. everything from the band A to The Zuttons and even singles on soul singers like Kenny Thomas, Stevie Wonder etc.

    News: General Johnson Rip

    Not been here in a while and have to say when i heard the news it was sad. He has been one of my fav singers in any soul band for a long time and he will be missed. love the song they did in the 80's called Loverboy. Our Love Will Grow is classic Northern RIP General
