  1. Looking for a copy of this at the right price for a friend. The less expensive of the labels would be ideal. Cheers. Mick.
  2. I'm also after I'm A Devil foi. Agree about it being obscure but both JM and TB only have it at £30 or £40 - not that it matters what they think! Definitely played in the late 70's, first by Soul Sam as far as I recall. I bought my original copy, which was also clean and hiss free, for no more than £10.
  3. Some bits & bobs for sale. PM me if you're interested (no haggling please as I've already lowered the prices as per JM's guide even if it's in M condition): Troy Dodds - Rise Up & Walk – Penthouse - £250 - VG+ (WOL) Marilyn Calloway - Shut Up – Ajax - £175 - VG The Dedications - I 'Aint A Bit Sorry – Bell - £40 - M Johnson Sisters - I Found My Place - Broadway (D) - £50 - VG+ (XOL) Bunny Shivel - Top Twenty – Capitol - £30 - M Sam Waymon - You Can Count On Me – Ninandy - £10 - VG+ (small tear on label) Vince Carey - Don't Worry – Turntable - £25 - M Lou Johnson - If I Never Get To Love
  4. until

    Well I've been umming & ahhing about TrueSoul this year despite enjoying myself immensely at last years Saturday day (Ruffcut) and evening sessions but I've finally decided to 'kick it' & 'get in there' - Saturday sesh only this time. So now I'm getting a bit excited and as the ladies would say even a little bit of wee came out although it's all wiped up and clean now! To all my muckers, male & female, see you Saturday & to those who are doing the whole weekend let me say take it easy on Friday night FFS - some of you were in a right old state on the Saturday last y
  5.

  6. Hi Neal If you still have the Billy Jones I will have it. PM me details. Cheers. Mick
  7. Andy Mick Howard here mate. I'm just off the phone with Mark Bicknell & assume that its your copy that he has agreed to buy from you. If so, then he apologises because he is having trouble with his PC which means he has been unable to PayPal the money. He still wants the tune if you're prepared to wait until he's back on line but it might be a few days yet (talk of routers and the like) but if you've sold it then never mind. Will PM you on FB too. All the best Mick
  8. As has already been said the only certainty in life is death which comes to us all in the end. For me, the passing of my 'heroes', and there is no question that Mr Babbit falls into that category, makes me ponder my age and subsequently my own mortality. I suppose that's rather sad really but having said that I can still carry on listening to Soul music and Motown in particular and know, truly know that it is right up there along with the very best that popular music has given us over the last 50 to 60 years and I reckon Mr Babbit knew that too. Right on indeed.
  9. An extremely enjoyable evening - all those I was there with agreed as well. Nice to meet some new faces - Dave yourself, Bob, Matt and Tim - remember what I said though, life is very short so the odd trip up North (for you) and down South (for me) at this time in our lives is a must..... Keep it up and will sure visit again if I'm in the area. ATB & KTF Mick
  10. I think you'll find that my old mucker Ady 'Chippy' Harley travelled the furthest - from Oz to the UK for the first Stafford re-union in Stoke back in 2005! He did of course stay a couple of weeks so that he could visit his friends & family but all the same..... Don't know the exact distance but would think that its a little bit further than Orlando/LA. Mick
  11. Oh yes Ted - it is also very, very good (yum). Be good to see what the lady looked like wouldn't it? Mick
  12. Hello everybody Markus, why you no speak for me sunny jim boy for simply long time? We is going the way down in Manchester isn't it? Plenty bazouki music. See you when. M
  13. Ted For me in this particular case the word "Masterpiece" is just not enough! This is one of the best Soul songs ever recorded IMHO - a stunning vocal which makes me well up every time I hear it which 'aint that often due to its rarity. Mick
