  1. Hi. Today on my radio show I did an interesting interview with legendary Chicago soul singer Jan Bradley. Bradley grew up in the Robins, IL, a South Suburb of Chicago. In high school she began singing lead with a local group called the Passions (a male group who later recorded as the Swinging Hearts). While performing at a talent show, Chicago promoter and owner of the Formal record label Don Talty discovered the group. Don decided to keep Bradley as a solo singer so Bradley left the group to pursue her solo career. Talty took Bradley to a show at the Regal in order to meet Curtis Mayfiel
  2. it is soul/funk as is james brown. did someone list it as "funky '70s crossover"?
  3. I know about louis chachere, he was part of the derbys revue in KC that had marva whitney, the sinceres, the del montes [later the visitors], etc. anyways it's clearly a funk record. it came out on two KC labels before jewel (forte and MJC).
  4. the louis chachere record is still a funk record. is it a jazz-funk record? probably with the hammond and horn arrangement. but it's still a funk record.
  5. people are so greedy to the point of being stupid. someone deciding that they're going to ignore all their buyers for an extra 50 pounds, like the same people are then going to PM again. idiot.
  6. this one is much better than the first one. is that the cabinet of dr. caligari? bizarre.
  7. i respect your opinion, it's not for everybody. but at least it's original and not some rock guy doing fake doowop tracks. terrible is better than mediocre and bad.
  8. i agree with godzilla. james brown was funk and soul. so is the louis chachere clip posted. paul, you're complaining that the seller hasn't correctly described a record within the current temporary micro-genres carved by a scene (which they have no part of) at a specific time? i'm just glad when i get an unknown r&b / soul record and it's not a country record.
  9. maybe he really appreciated it but all that matters is the end product and the reception. i see i wrote "mast" instead of "mask", that was a typo before anyone makes fun of me for that
  10. for the record, ebay grading has significantly improved for a lot of terrible sellers since the advent of the DSRs (detailed seller ratings, the star system). they have been the only thing keeping sellers' status on ebay. ebay is changing it again so that they rate sellers based on returns and refunds, which i think will loosen the grading once again. i don't think anything is new. there always have been conservative and non-conservative graders. you have to look at the listings for clues (e.g. compare the label condition to the vinyl condition and see whether it looks like a "VG+" recor
  11. it's hilarious to me reading threads like this where the actual record is not specified, i'm like "i have no idea which one you're talking about", but somehow everyone else does so i'm in another world on this message board. like if someone starts a thread "price for gene chandler?" this is not an insult to the original poster so please don't read it as such, i'm just saying i'm lost here.
  12. i can't stand zappa, doing fake versions of other genres, proving how musicially "smart" he is, for an audience that would never listen to the real thing. beefheart is listenable when doing original sounds like on trout mast replica. that said, this track is decent.
  13. big hit in chicago, the styrene design on the right is by far the more common version actually. i think there's another vinyl label variation but might be confused.
