  4. I just see a dirty or sun starched label? Or have I missed something? I collected the Blue Soul label and other named Blue Soul labels and never seen it, so my view is as above? Dave H.

  11. But they are all different forms of musical media which not everybody likes/wants or prefers. Even with vinyl LPs are not every bodies cup of tea if you just want the one track say, hence the 45 release prehaps?

  12. i suspect it's a two edge sword, you press 1000 and get stuck with 500, it's money on the shelve you can't use for next label project. Then there's the deal with the artist. If a deal is struck for a 500 run and the label gets stuck with half then the artist still gets his money. If the label sells out, doing a re run isn't that straight forward, they have to get permission from said artist....who may start to think "hang on we can get a better deal as our product is Hot" or over a 500 might cost more to the label for contract reasons. While reruns are great for those that didn't get copies it is not always great business sense for label or artist. In the world of numbers a thousand isn't a lot for the whole world of Soul fans to buy, but it is a big hit if they don't sell and that's where the rub is. If you put out the track to DJs and record stores as promos with the intention of gauging reaction and possible upfront orders from said outlets, you also open the door for negative things to happen, like gazumping, bootlegging etc. Now I'm not saying these are the reasons but if I was running a label they certainly would be on my mind. How would you feel to say......hearing a snippet of a new track, placing and paying for the product before its pressed and then trust to the label, once they have your money and an idea of who wants what and how many to press and distribute? That's prehaps the only way everybody wins without too many losing out which has to include the label and artist besides us greedy Soul fans! This is just me thinking out loud-so let's not take the above as any insight into what's happened here at all. Dave H.

  13. Anybody want to part with Otis Brown & The Delights Southside of Chicago. Ole 100. Original only . Not reissue. Please state condition and price please many thanks
  14. "All at once" is one of my favourites by the lady, along with the midtempo masterpiece "Lighten up" with the killer ballad " Don't let me be lonely tonight " on the flip. Think im missing her Senator 45 from my collection but can live with the cd with it on. What she left us was and still is a great legacy to her talent. Respect always Ty.

  15. While I don't condone bootlegging, the Soul music scene in general doesn't abide by the laws of the land. Venues used not being fully licensed to play music springs to mind and DJs not submitting their playlists to them for paying dues. Think this has now all been put under one license now, but over the years the amount of venues not covered must of been immense. Now in the big scheme of things it may sound insignificant, but add it all together it would amass to a few bob for the artist, songwriter, etc etc. Then let's throw in tapes & CDs sold at soul venues for whatever price or reason is also bootlegging as its copying without permission. Selling on your bootleg " reissues" is also deemed an offence so in the main we all need to look at ourselves on this issue. Thinking we are not doing any harm can't really be used as an excuse as we are all part of the problem, in fact we were all part of the mountain that was created by us creating the demand, whether that be back in the 70s or the collectors of today. Having just got back from Utrecht record fair and the amount of rare Soul albums that were there for sale, all priced above the normal new price for an album but done with the same artwork etc, where if you didn't know any better would be made to fool? The demand is there so the bootleggers provide. I was told most come out of Russia's/Eastern Europe so don't think there is much regulation out there when it comes to their practice? Look how long it's took the authorities to act here! These four go down, but it's the tip of a very large mountain fed by a very large base. Rant over Dave H.
