  1. Yes, saw that. Thanks. I'll wait for the link to go live on Friday...
  2. There's a typo in the actual url. It should be www.raresoulvinyl.co.uk Can't actually find the book on the site though. Have checked the "books" link at the bottom of the left-hand nav column, but it's not listed there. Is there an actual page for it?

    The Belgium Popcorn Oldies Top 100 for 2018

    I wouldn't worry about labels - they can be so terribly artificial. After all, when Sam Fletcher went into the recording studio he didn't go there with the intention of creating a Northern Soul or a Popcorn tune! While my three selections fit firmly into what...

    The Belgium Popcorn Oldies Top 100 for 2018

    The speed of the track is down to the DJ, but the point of Popcorn is to have tracks at roughly the same slowish/mid-tempo so that couples can dance to them in their relaxed "jive" style. There is a separate Northern Soul scene in Belgium, which seems to...

    DUKE TURNER...

    Just for additional info, and in case you want to go searching for one - on the acetate of this, instead of "Baby sitter pt2", there's an absolutely cracking track from Turner that was never released.
  10. The reissue is coming out on Colemine and has their name across the top of the label. There won't be any confusion about which release is first or second.

    Poll: Cd Buying in 2018

    Last CD I bought was this one and that was probably at least a year ago now. Bought a new iMac before Christmas last year. Apple, in their wisdom, chose to do away with the inbuilt CD/DVD drive. That means unless I buy a separate drive, I have nothi...

    Where And When Did Northern Soul Dancing Start?

    Where And When Did Northern Soul Dancing Start?

    I'm pretty sure that's what I said five years ago in my post on the first page of this thread.
