Here's a summary: Map City 301 11/69 We Can Fly To The Moon / Only One Of A Kind Map City 305 1970 We Can Survive / Cat and Mouse Verve 10655 11/71 Right Now / We Done Threw It Away Lion 122 09/72 You MAde Me A Brand New World / Right Now (arr. Joe Falsia) Lion 148 03/73 Forgotten Man / Left In The Lost And Found (arr. Johnny Pate) Lion 164 05/74 Making My Daydream Real / Whatcha Done For Me, I'm Gonna Do For You Members were Robert Taylor, Shabi Weems, Billy McEachern and Terri Gonzales. Billy McEachern later turned up as a member of Odyssey - the "Native New Yorker" outfit. All six of their singles were written / produced by Landy McNeal. The matrix numbers for the Lion singles indicate that they're New York recordings so it looks as if NY was their home base. ************************** I wonder how many other releases are missing from this? - At least one on Polydor... 0 Quote - John - sunnysoul Going Big Members 493 2,487 posts TRADER FEEDBACK 7 0 0 TOTAL: 100% Posted 7 minutes ago · Flag this post Just going back over this old thread ... can anyone confirm that a We The People 7" release on Polydor actually exists ?

  5. You're being a bit harsh , aren't you ? I don't really think anyone is getting hung up about it. The original post was just an innocent request for some info on the record. And one of the great things about Soul Source is that we can have discussion on soul music as an art form as well as discussion on the authenticity of records! In any event , both sides are LP only and I would have thought that the focus of comments would have been more on the Sinner Man side which is probably the best uptempo dancer of her Tamla output and one that no doubt many DJs and collectors would like to see on a legit 7" release.

  8. Roburt Future Classic Members 1,536 4,970 posts Posted March 24, 2016 (edited) · Flag this post The (King) Mojo Club in Sheffield was where I first got to experience the excitement of watching numerous live soul acts. Whether it was UK based outfits that played the Sunday night sessions (Jimmy James & Vags, Geno Washington & RJB, Alan Bown, Jimi Hendrix, Sonny Childe & TNT, Chris Farlowe, Jimmy Cliffe & Breakdown Sound, etc.) or the American based acts that played the Saturday 'niters' or Sunday 'dayers' (Stevie Wonder, Garnet Mimms, Spellbinders, Alvin Cash & Crawlers, Roy C, Jnr Walker, Edwin Starr, Inez & Charlie Foxx, Ike & Tina Turner, Rufus Thomas, Wilson Pickett, Ben E King, Isley Bros, etc). In addition to all the live acts there were all the great new sounds on record that the place introduced me to (either directly or indirectly). The place was so influential in Yorkshire, that a new dance performed @ the Mojo would have spread out to clubs in Doncaster, Hull, Goole, Grimsby, Lincoln, Worksop & beyond within days. The same went for all the new records that Pete Stringfellow would spin. If Brenton Wood's “Gimme Little Sign” was played on import at the niter, club DJ's across the county would be chasing a copy by the Tuesday. Top sounds @ the Mojo in 1967 were the Brenton Wood cut already mentioned, the Artistics “I'm Gonna Miss You”, Homer Banks “60 Minutes of Your love” & “A Lot Of Love”, Bud Harper “Mr. Soul”, Major Lance “The Beat”, Chubby Checker “Discotheque”, Inez & Charlie Foxx “Tightrope”, Wilson P's “Midnight Hour”, Eddie Floyd's “Knock On Wood”, Darrell Banks “Open The Door”, Phil Upchurch “Can't Sit Down”, Impressions “You've Been Cheatin”, COD's “Michael”, Rex Garvin's “Sock It To Em JB”, Lee Dorsey's “Ride Your Pony”, Fontella Bass “Rescue Me”, loads from Willie Mitchell, “The In Crowd”, “Never Like This Before”, “Billy's Bag”, “Harlem Shuffle” and many more. The list above doesn't even include any of the many Motown tracks that were anthems, as these are just too numerous to mention. The odd ska track was also still played; Prince Buster, the Folk Brothers & Roland Alphonso. But it wasn't only 45's that Pete played. Tracks such as Stevie Wonder's “Love A Go Go” and Billy Stewart's “Exodus” were up there amongst the top legendary tracks played on a regular basis.
  9. As for his style of writing , Dave Godin - like clothes music politics sport and life itself - he was of his time and times change and each generation expresses itself differently to a degree, so that's no crime. Most of the points he made in this article - and indeed throughout his whole journalistic and writing career - are in fact fairly clear and to the point . Oldies But Goodies became a well known phrase - and an industry - in the US in the late 60s when the first wave of Rock N Roll nostalgia began (for rock, doo wop and rnb music of the 50s and early 60s ) . There was much money being made from re-issuing classic hits. This is what he is going on about in this article although he puts it in the British context and specifically the "Up North Soul Scene" as he referred to the scene at the time. The comments he makes on those who are "finding and digging" "oldies records" are actually directed at elitist DJs & collectors. If Dave had been active on the soul scene of the last 15-20 years , he would almost certainly have mercilessly hammered today's OVO brigade ; and if a record had been legally re-issued at a cheap price Dave would have insisted you should be able to play it anywhere , any time. Ironically though , in his early columns of the late 60s / early 70s , he used to say it was OK and understandable for a DJ to have a few "exclusives" or "secret sounds" (ie a cover up) ... As for plugging his own product , well why not, it was his column and he was a businessman too ( had his own record shop Soul City).
  10. heroin & cocaine ???
  11. All very good versions but Carl Carlton's is clearly the best !
  12. After their LP and single releases on Mandala in the early 70s the Vibration's final release before they called it a day was "Shake It Up / Make It Last" on Chess Records from '74 recorded in Philly with Alan Felder and Vince Montana . The mp3 you have posted is very clearly a classic early to mid 70s Philly sound . It has all the hallmarks of an Alan Felder production. May well have been from the same sessions. Who knows, maybe it was even slated for release after Shake It Up but never saw the light of day on vinyl because Chess was in deep financial trouble at that time. The group must have been promoting their Chess release on the show (Make It Last may well have been the official A side / Plug Side rather than Shake It Up). Where did you source the mp3 ? You mention it's from a Steel Pier Show : this was a popular TV Show hosted by Ed Hurst in Atlantic City from the late 50s to the late 70s ; is the mp3 from a vinyl / audio source ... or is it a video clip from youtube or some other visual media ?
  13. If, as appears to be the case, the record was only issued in the UK and Europe, it is more than likely because it was released to promote the "The Best of Tavares LP" that you can see on the scan of the 7" in the first post on this thread. The track "I Wanna See You You Soon" only appeared in the UK & European versions of the LP , not in the US release of the LP. Plus the fact that both acts were more popular in the UK & Europe than they were in their own country made even more sense for the company to release a duet single like that and look to get a chart hit in the UK ...
