  11. Blimey. I wish this thread had started Oct. 2018 (not 2019) as that's when I purchased an issue from a French Discogs seller. He doesn't want to refund pointing out there's no mention of boots on Discogs for this record (which is true). Looks like a ruddy expensive lesson for me! ;(
  12. Quality Rare Soul from across the decades. Our first night of 2019 (our 3rd year) and will be a good one. Guest DJ's JOHN BROWNE and TRACEY SHAW of Soul Kitchen (Tunbridge Wells) will be spinning plenty of top soul vinyl PLUS State of Soul resident DJ's Johnny Pearson, Lindsay Jobling and Jez Bishop. Vinyl only! Some northern, some modern, some crossover and everything in between and beyond (hope that covers it) CHEAP BAR !!!! (cash only). Starts 7pm to 12am £5 admission which includes free access to the dance floor! Oatlands Park Working Men's Club KT13 9PZ (flyer attached). Be great to see SOUL fans there! Cheers! Jez, Lindsay & Johnny
