    With contrition.........

    Hi everybody. Sadly, I have decided to cease my membership of Soul Source today. There are many on this forum with exceptional talents and expertise, but my musical conquests are taking so much time up these days, that I miss many of the threads, am not an expert in the general subject matter on here and actually feel guilty posting my new releases and indeed rather intimidated at times, so it's best I do not engage now or in th..

    Blue-eyed Soul?

    MBarrett - The Destinations. Shocked too. Fantastic song and production. Truly overwhelmed with this. Well found.
  3. If there are no words yet, there is no completed melody. The lyricist who writes words will be defining part of the melody and in that case would need the appropriate split with the PRS/MCPS for the song writing. Also, would be good if the singer had a performer PPL id, so when you register it with your ISRC number and declare those who performed on it, they would get a royalty from airplay (as well as the 'label' -you?) :-) I think ..

    Al Kent Book

    Baseball cap - I wonder David. Imagine having a dance at an event with that on, to a Ric Tic track.

    Any new releases warming the cockles?

    If I am allowed to post on this thread (hopefully). All music was once new and fresh, so hearing the hopefuls (like my material and songs) recorded today can be interesting when comparing to the yardsticks of the last 50 years or so. The question is, why bother being creative now as there was so much good stuff back in the day....and also being discovered now. So for me I am creative. I sit at a piano and I like to play a few ol..

    Al Kent Book

    Looks like it David. That label still holds its head up high doesn't it! Al Kent's 'Ooh! Pretty lady' was a track I analysed back in the early 90s when I was planning to become a song writer. A great yardstick.

    Grooving At The Gogo - The Larks Question

    Don't forget the squeaky kick drum on 'Groovin at the go go'. The pedal squeaked and on a 45 not so noticeable :-)

    Eddie Holland Sad News

    Not nice to see this type of thing happening. I would never transfer my song writing copyrights to anybody. The unscrupulous in the business even at song writing level can hear a good completed song and try and manipulate the author into believing it needs changing, then claim a percentage of it. That's why I tend to write, produce, release the way I do.

    The Casualeers

    Hi Kirsty Someone will own that recording somewhere. Whether it is the executive producer or somebody who bought the masters from them, or their estate if they have sadly passed away etc. The person who owns the master now may not have a clue what it is, if that makes sense. Paul Mooney may have a much better idea than me, but respectfully there are moral rights to a recorded work. When I do my productions there are sometimes 30..

    The Casualeers

    I had the 'Liquid Smoke' version and never knew about 'The Casualeers' original. The original version is on another level. This is an article about one of the writers of the song, Rod McBrien, with a little trivia :- 'Dance Dance Dance' - The Song. Rod McBrien interview

    Need help!!!!

    The Bay City Rollers are on tour. Sing 'Bye Bye Baby' and strike a dialogue up regarding the original by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and the BCR cover version. Misdirect occasionally to 'You're ready now' and the horn arrangement to really 'cover up' your dilemma.

    BBC 4 tonight...artists being short changed!

    And those very early first CD's were sub standard in many cases, perishing over the years. Also many new CD compilations back then had some re-makes of popular cuts with the original artist singing with a new backing track. They were awful. The PRS/MCPS and PPL are fighting for writer/performer royalties constantly. The different territories are getting together with todays technology and are creating massive database of songs/..
  14. What an uplifting article.

    MIGHT BE A DAFT ASS QUESTION BUT ... ???? Stereo / Mono?

    If a big dance floor had stereo speakers and you stood next to one of them, there is a chance you would not hear the other speakers instruments in that scenario. I would be tempted for mono at events like that, but stereo for home/domestic/headphones or tx on the radio/tv etc.
