  1. Florence Alabama Music Enterprises, or simply FAME, the world-renowned recording studio and record label owned by Rick Hall in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. It produced a wealth of hit records for many artists and was instrumental in creating the sound of Muscle Shoals. As well as the hits the studio and label also had an amazing amount of material that didn’t make the charts or was simply left in the can. However Ace Records struck a deal to go through the vaults and subsequently many tracks have been rescued and issued thus further preserving the legacy Rick Hall and the extremely talen

  4. Dave Godin A Northern Soul, a biography by Stephen Stevlor. Review by Damian Conaghan.............. aka Dim @Dim Those of us who regard ourselves as Soul Music fans have heard of Dave Godin. My introduction to him, along with many of my peers, was via his column, during the early 1970s, in Blues & Soul magazine, where his musings gave due weight to the beauty of the music we love. A few of our number got to meet him and a few got to know him to varying degrees. But I never met him and, beyond his stellar reputation, his coining of the phrase 'Northern Soul' and the whole leg
  5. The summer of 1996 was a great time for lovers of Northern/Rare Soul for it was the time when Ady Croasdell unleashed the unreleased RCA masters on the basement dancefloor of the famed 100 Club, the home of the countries longest running Northern/Rare Soul all-nighter club, now in its 42nd year. Amongst these tracks was Kenny Carter’s original take of “What’s That On Your Finger”. Already known for the RCA 45 by Willie Kendrick. Kenny’s take a totally different arrangement, smoother more soulful with Kenny pleading for the hand of his ex because he’s been lonely without her only to see a

  7. Rare Soul Review - Issue 1 2001 Rare Soul review - Issue 1 (note 2 x clips are fairly large - 200kb and may take a few mins to download, but worth the wait) Recently had the good sense at a niter to think better buy myself something to read before putting myself at the mercy of Railtrack on a Sunday. Quick look round the dealers stalls and spotted the glossy cover of the first issue of Rare Soul review. Had a flick and thought yeah give that a go. Now Railtrack being Railtrack yiu may be surprised to hear that they gave me a good chance to read this, (ended up a 10 hour journey ) so

  12. The There's That Beat! Guide To The Philly Sound (Dave Moore and Jason Thornton) Review by Mark Windle Yes, this tome has been a long time coming. And in two ways. Not only reflected by the journey author Dave Moore and graphic designer Jason Thornton have had from book conception to publication, spanning over at least six-plus years I believe - although the precursors which got them there cross a lifetime of a love of soul music, and at that, on both sides of the Atlantic. A book like this has also been well overdue from a musical reference perspective. Thankfully for the soul musi
  13. Jack Ashford Just Productions - CDKEND 447 Personally I hate recycling! paper in this bin, garden waste in that bin etc etc ......but back in Detroit in the late sixties Jack Ashford was the top man when it came to the recycling of band tracks, many rescued from the recently defunct Pied Piper production set up. Backing tracks previously used for the likes of the Hesitations, September Jones & the incredibly talented Lorraine Chandler were sweetened, remixed & furnished with fresh lyrics before being shopped to the many Detroit independent labels such as Sepia, Premium Stuff

  15. One In A Million: The Songs Of Sam Dees - Various Artists (Songwriter Series) CDKEND 411 Meet Samuel L Dees — A Song-writing Phenomenon As Tony Rounce clearly states in his opening gambit to the liner notes of the Kent offering: The Songs Of Sam Dees, “Few songwriters command the level of respect amongst soul fans that Sam Dees does. No single compilation could cover the whole career of a writer whose song list is a big as Sam’s”. As is usual with the Kent releases, you’d be hard pushed to find a better selection of Sam’s song-writing ability that highlights the selected time frame that
  16. out now via Hayley Records The latest release from Hayley records sees two previously unreleased sides from Emanuel Laskey reaching vinyl for the first time.Recorded in 1978, both tracks were written and produced by Laskey along with Marvin Gaye and Mel Bolton. (Put Your Name) In The Hall Of Fame (see above for scan) is a smooth mid-uptempo dancer combining Laskey's satin voice with a funky bassline and sweet female backing vocals. The vocals are effortless but passionate as he tells his lady that she’s “a star… the very best”. Subtle keyboard and flute harmonies punctuate each line an
  17. Ask any soulie, dancer, collector or dealer to name a city closely associated with the scene and I bet most would say Detroit. Ask them to name a label from Detroit and again I bet most would say LaBeat. Both are synonymous with the scene and deservedly so. This release from Grapevine is in the opinion of many long over due and rightly deserves a lasting tribute to the joy the label has brought to many soulies for over 30 years. One look at the people involved behind the scenes at LaBeat, its subsidiaries Mary Jane, Coolschool and Rambler and also Lou Be
