  4. first on soul source in 90s The northern scene mentioned in this review is now up in the video section Thanks to Pete Smith of Planet Records( see links for details) who before he bought a modem used to produce a good northern fanzine full of good stuff like this review. Here's a excellent review of one (if not the) of the few films with a reference to Northern.

  6. So the first series of American Soul comes to conclusion this week with Don Cornelius securing an appearance from Ike and Tina Turner but struggling with ever present distractions such as a rocky marriage , organised crime and his own health issues. The BET channel were given a huge responsibility in reflecting a such an iconic programme that holds so many memories for its the series target audience . There have also been expectations from Soul fans with many of us feeling this was the greatest era of Black American music. Former Police Officer Don Cornelius humble beginn
  7. There's a plethora of books readily available on the subject of "Northern Soul". I've ploughed through a good number of them....they're mainly (not all) personal memoirs of the Scene back in the 70's and most of them are poorly written, turgid affairs which rely on photographs to carry them. Most of them are fixated with Wigan Casino. There are exceptions, of course, but not many. 'The Truth About Northern Soul' is Stephen Riley's analysis of the Scene, warts and all, from it's early days and on to the beast it has become in the 2020's. It's a quite brilliant attempt at debunking the rose
  8. News/Article/Feature Highlight: A review. The book is a brilliantly written and well researched look at the Scene from the early days up to the present. It strips away some of the mythology and preconceptions surrounding the Scene. View full article

  10. Book Review. When I was first knocking around the Rare Soul Scene, there was a guy from Cambridge called Norman Rogers. He was one of the 'faces'. Everywhere that he went, Norman took his camera. The story goes that it was a present from an aunt or uncle and that it was a top quality job.... In fact it was his father who gave him it. Over the years he's taken thousands of pictures, many of which have subsequently turned up in various books, magazines and TV documentaries often without Norman getting any accreditation or acknowledgement. So this book is, if you like, Norman's own t
  11. SOUL SOURCE BOOKSHELF – FLORIDA SOUL When asked to name America’s main music producing cities or regions from a soul perspective, it would probably boil down to the stand out trio of Detroit, Philadelphia and Chicago, in no particular order. Memphis would also get thrown into the mix, but few might suggest Florida, an area more associated as a holiday destination rather than one rich in soul music history. “Florida Soul”, written by John Capouya, a professor of journalism and writing at the University of Tampa, and published by University Press of Florida, convinces the reader that the
  12. DORÉ: L.A. SOUL SIDES Lewis Joseph Bedinsky, better known to Soul Music lovers as Lew or Lou Bedell, and his cousin Herb Newman set up Era Records in the mid 50’s along with backing from Max Newman. In 1958, to increase airplay on radio a second label was added and it was named Doré. Despite the closeness of Bedell and Newman they did have differences musically and these differences eventually led to an amicable split approximately a year after the formation of Doré with Newman retaining Era and Bedell Doré. Up to 1964 the label mainly recruited and recorded white acts, there we
  13. 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
  14. 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. Various Artists - Harmony Of The Soul Vocal Groups 1962-1977 – CDKEND 409 This is the fourth instalment of Kent’s “In Perfect Harmony” Series, which concentrates on the sweeter side of group soul spanning the length and breadth of America, highlighting lesser known artists as well as including higher profile acts like; The Pretenders, Brothers Of Soul, Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces and The Mad Lads. The CD contains 24 tracks of which, nine are previously unreleased (including two demo’s from the Stax vaults) and one which first saw the light of day on the Golden State Soul CD (CDKEND
  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. 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
