    take a look inside-The Supremes

    Just listening now: so far Never can say goodbye is a really good cover ,Jean`s vocals take this song to another level. It`s too late,great strings and things,musically best version of them all. Track on about 29-32 mins is nice,got no liner notes to work with and was doing other things lol. Maybe you can help Kirsty?

    is that how much the cd is going for now . Would`t give 50p for a cd now days,old hat format which isn`t my cup of tea. Never understood why these tracks haven`t been put on vinyl.

    London soul nights in the 80s

    Re the Rosemary Branch, the old manager of Hobgoblin pub White Lion St where we did the Filthy Soul All dayers is now running that pub . He`s open for people to put on Soul nights there. Worth a visit,he`s a good guy to deal with.

    London soul nights in the 80s

    Rarely hear a Cockney accent in the West End and surrounding area now. I get told this time and time again this from people overseas and from Up North. Anyway on a more positive note, anybody do the Mildmay Tavern in Highbury/Islington area .

    Fair play to ya Sean. I agree Jean Terrell vocal`s quality, nice with strings and things. Maybe you can bend a few ears in the right direction regarding who`s doing the Motown vaults box sets fella .

    London soul nights in the 80s

    Where do i start, now London is filling up with Rich/Dodgy/ Foreign investors who don`t care for what London was or for it`s history,Local people etc. Working class people now being forced out due to high rents,lack of affordable housing etc . This in turn means pubs,clubs nearby these new developments having to turn the music down to silly levels/stop having Music events on. It`s the old N.i.m.b.y. mob in full force again. The amount of Events i`ve been to last 10 years where there have had hassle from residents re the music. Never used to be like this. Call me old fashioned but if you move into Shoreditch next to clubs and pubs ,don`t expect silence all night. That`s why they were cheap digs back in the 90`s. Don`t help the council`s are so Soviet style now on clubs and pubs, there won`t be many left in 10 years time in London.
  11. Surprised this hasn`t been put on a 45 with the Motown Box sets yet. Unreleased from 1971 ,i believe it`s off a cd called this is to stay,68 tracks feat Jean Terrell years 70-74. Anybody got this cd? Wondered if there might be some other unreleased material worth putting out. Here`s the track for those that might not know it. Sorry for the vague info but i was sent this via a mate years ago,i put it on a bit of paper(like you do lol). Found the bit of paper in a box along with other tracks last week.

    London soul nights in the 80s

    I went to the Metropolitan Club in Farringdon,if memory serves it used to be next to Yo Sushi in Farringdon rd,now flats. They had all sort of nights,latin,Rare groove,Soul and Jazz. We had many a drunken night in there. Also did the ,The Bush,Sols Arms,St Giles and,The Notre Dame in Leicester Sq early 80`s,they were Mod nights. Late 80`s did a few Of Clarkie`s do`s,rememeber heading over West to Shepherds Bush/Barons Court way for a night out once. Even in the 90`s there was plenty still going on. Sadly London isn`t the City we all grew up in any more

    Slaven Bilic sacked

    Sadly we have been sold a lie by the Dildo brothers. All this bollocks about bringing in top players,we will spend big. Spoke to enough Brum fans to know how this mob work. Bilic was a average manager but to be fair ,his first season ,we saw some of the best football played since the Harry days. Think it helped being last season at the Boleyn . Re Sam,yes he did keep us up but football was crap to watch and if surviving is all about being in Prem then i`m happy to get relegated and play in a league where all the teams have a fair crack. At least i`ll easy get a ticket for away games,especially in the Midlands with Derby,Forest ,Brum and Villa to name a few. My choice after Sam would have been Eddie Howe,he`s young and is a very good coach. His teams play decent football considering what money he`s got to spend. Joys of being a hammer,is like listening to Deep soul ,it`s all heartache and pain with the odd happy moment thrown in lol.

    The Tams – This Precious Moment 7"

    Just a matter of interest ,what was 1st? Red or Yellow? I was under the impressive Red. Just been looking at prices and the yellow is listed on line at £99-160, yet Red at £88. Am i missing something here, cos i never thought it was hard to find both colours.
