  1. Well typed there Kev! Must've taken you ages I'm glad you made the effort though as missed the first few hours and then as usual couldn't remember most of the records I heard or looked at through the night! Much amazing soul, beer and some JD soaked up over several hours in very good company + great to meet Jakob and Anthony too...sure looked like they enjoyed themselves double decking later on and no doubt be back if you keep it rolling. All the best and thanks again, Steve
  2. Please PM if you have one of these to sell or trade, on Q Records. Cheers, Steve
    Great write up there Geoff and not sure I can add much more other than to agree...cracking night! After reading so much about this nighter over many years, it certainly lived up to expectations and will be back again later this year for sure. The seven hours went real quick and personally loved the mix of 60's and 70's, different tempos and genres of soul, rare and not so, enough records I knew and plenty that I didn't. Good to hear Sam include a fairly recent release as always, this one being The El Count Executives and also an imminent new release which I can't remember the name of but will certainly be keeping an eye out for...both pretty well filled the floor, as most sounds did through the whole night. Enjoyed all the different spots and Len certainly looked at home in there, entertaining himself and the crowd in the final spot, up to and over the official finishing time, even getting the bouncers dancing at the end! A good soul fix for sure, much dancing and banter. Was good to meet you Matt and a few more people who I'm sure I'll see again. Cheers, Steve.
  3. Another very sad loss. Have really enjoyed his music, one of my faves among so many tracks "That's why I came to California"..Was only listening to it the other day feeling uplifted with memories of just the one trip to LA so far. RIP Leon.
  4. I'm no expert either but from relatively recent experience of adding a 1200w powered Alto sub to my kit, I'd certainly recommend a look at this as I couldn't quite believe the difference it's made to overall richness and depth of sound in both small and larger rooms. With your kit you could potentially then run your larger new speakers from your existing amp, but not quite max it, then power two smaller speakers from the amp built into the sub, subject to getting one with the right outputs etc. You might even find that just a decent powered sub + your two new speakers (powered by your existing amp) could potentially sound better overall than 4x speakers and no sub. All trial and error really and much depends on venue size, amount of furniture and bodies in, general acoustics of the room etc etc...also how much kit you want to lug around! Kev's idea about getting a new amp for your new speakers would also give you a plan B if you were to ever have a problem with the existing amp during an event, which is always a worry even though they rarely go wrong. There's a massive choice out there I know but if you have a decent local DJ gear shop or similar, they should be able to provide best advice I'd have thought. If not then there's a very good one here in Northants called Fabtronic which has really helpful and knowledgable staff always happy to chat things through and great shop + website. Hope that helps
  5. Lonnnnng time overdue for me to give this famous club a try, great line up, looking forward to it, even with the challenge of Len no doubt nattering away there and back when I'm trying to nap on the train...hopefully play those few records I like dancing to even if no one else does
  6. Thanks for posting this a few weeks ago Sean. Received mine today from Colemine and top quality both sides for sure for anyone who likes this style and tempo of soul. Guessing there'll be some UK dealers stocking but if not then best get in quick from Colemine, as when I looked a moment ago their website was saying only 9 left (not sure how many they pressed up?). Cheers, Steve https://www.coleminerecords.com/products/tsr002 PS...If anyone has a spare or unwanted copy of the Dontel's "Moaning and crying" / "Soul nitty gritty" (on Donte) then please let me know, thanks.
  7. No worries Mick. I've never tried to finalise a re-writable disc and thought they couldn't be used again once finalised? I think that's why I use plain ole CD-R to get a couple of dozen records at a time into my iTunes in the absence of a decent USB turntable.
  8. Can't seem to find original instructions for my Pioneer to see about finalising a re-writable disc (CD-RW) if that's what you're using? For what it's worth, for some time now I've been using Verbatim "Music CD-R" (80 min) discs which can only be used once, i.e. not re-writable, and they finalise okay so long as I don't record more than say 75 mins. Could well be your player Mick. Happy to try finalising your disc on my recorder if you want to post it to me. Cheers, Steve.
  9. I get this same problem now and then. I tend to find it happens if I try to fill up a cd so there's only a couple of mins recording time left. Seems to be okay if I leave 5-10 mins blank space at the end when recording, as I think the finalising thing needs that space on the disc. Might also depend on the quality of CDs being used? If it does keep looping at the end when trying to finalise a disc, turn it off & on again then eject cd and try playing it in another player and chances are it may have actually finalised okay. Considering how digital tech has moved on this last 10 years, these recorders are still a great I think. Hope this helps. Cheers, Steve
  10. Join Scotters, Gouch and other guest DJ's / collectors for SOUL from 7-11 in the conservatory room at the back of the Stanwick Hotel. Plenty of parking, FREE admission, decent beers on tap or decent tea & coffee too!

Same deal as before...whatever your soulful preference at some time during the night you'll hear something to float your boat, cheap or rare, various tempos, 60's to current releases.

    ...Slight change of plan today that we'll be staying in the conservatory room side of the hotel, rather than the main room, for a much needed wind-down soul session after a busy couple of nights. It's more cozy on a day like today and this is also where we'll also hold just three more Sunday Soul Sessions this year: 14th May, 16th Jul and 24th Sept. Less is more Thanks in advance to today's guest collectors who will be sharing their soul along with Brian and I from 2pm will be Tricky, Pete Mattock, Sid, Tank, Stevie P and brothers Dean & Jason Lockwood. Cheers, Steve
  14. until

    A few people have asked about food available....The hotel have confirmed they'll be serving up basket meals and other snacks over the weekend + those staying over get a great breakfast of course. Should be reasonably priced but if anyone wants to brave the cold for something more hearty there's also a great pub by the church just 5 mins walk into Stanwick (and a 24 hr McD's a couple of miles miles up the road on the edge of Raunds). Looks like it's gonna be cool out and maybe some snow, but with 3500 Watt sound systems in each room and top soul being served to top people across the weekend, should be warm inside at least! Ps..the Sunday Soul Session is now confirmed as starting at 2pm rather than the originally advertised later time and is shaping up very nicely for those interested. Cheers, Steve
