  1. Don Juan Mancha — songwriter, producer, musician and talent scout. The name ‘Don Juan’ first appeared in the Spanish play ‘The Trickster of Seville and the Stone Guest’ by Tirso de Molina in 1630. The plot centres on a fictional libertine who devoted his life to seducing women. The term quickly passed into literary parlance as a synonym for a ‘womaniser.’ The story itself was rewritten numerous times throughout the centuries, in a variety of forms, including many plays, a poem by Byron, an opera by Mozart and a social satire by George Bernard Shaw, ‘Man and Superman.’ Don Juan Mancha’s le
  2. Detroit hold a special place in the world of soul music. For many it is considered the capitol of soul music amongst collectors. It is a very emotive and subjective argument of course but Detroit does hold a special place in the heart of the Rare, Northern Soul scene. Partly because of the accessibility from the very early days with many acts having travelled to the UK since the 1960s to the present day but largely because of the depth of quality music from a myriad of labels all out to grab a part of the black music scene in Detroit dominated by Motown right through the 1960s­­­­­­­.

  4. PAUL RISER - MBA (Motown’s Brilliant Arranger) The importance of the arranger in the musical process, whatever the genre, cannot be overstated …or underestimated. The arranger translates the basic structure of a song, or piece of music, into a format that musicians can play, while improvising and embellishing the original concept into a completed creation. The American Federation of Musicians defines musical arrangement as “ …the art of preparing and adapting an already written composition for presentation in other than its original form. An arrangement may include re harmonization, parap
  5. In the days before computerized information flow, most Detroit performers’ awareness of any interest in their musical output from the 1960s or 1970s, anywhere in the world, was almost non-existent. Most had given up the dream of stardom or notoriety, and had selected alternative forms of employment. To be suddenly informed by a white man with a funny accent decades later, that a song, or songs, they had recorded in their teens or early twenties and completely forgotten about, were now popular with people from a different culture, several thousand miles away, for many, was a totally confusing r
  6. Visiting America can be a truly uplifting and pleasurable experience. It is the land of milk and honey, where the streets are paved with gold and everyone gets a fair chance to prosper and succeed. Migrants have been arriving for centuries, from all corners of the globe. Buy into the American dream and you too, can take your place on the gravy train to a modern day Utopia - a consumer heaven - a veritable Shangri La of goods, Gods and guns (for your own protection of course). Trans continental virgin visitors are usually impressed by the size and splendour of the cities, monuments and
  7. The BEST decade - a look at 'that' decade Those of us fortunate enough to have spent our teenage years in the 1960s should be feeling especially sad at the premature passing of George Best. Not just because he was a brilliant footballer or that he lived a Faustian lifestyle " but because he was a true icon in an age that gave us the cultural foundations of our modern existence, and, more specifically, created the music we love. Best was part of an era that gave us discothiques and a dance style that didn't require a course of lessons with Fred Astaire..
  8. News/Article/Feature Highlight: Very sad to report that legendary Motown bass player Bob Babbitt passed away this morning.

  15. GEORGE McGREGOR - Detroit's busiest drummer. There can't be many people who have seen active military service as a teenager in Korea, played music for some of the most famous doyens and despots in the world, yet enjoyed a long and distinguished career as a musician and record producer in one of the most creative eras of popular music ever. George McGregor has. Over five decades, beginning in the mid 1950s, he played drums on everything from marching bands to Motown with a technical proficiency and distinctive style that made him one of the premier military beaters, and one of the m
  16. The BROTHERS OF SOUL (Fred Bridges, Richard Knight, Ben Knight and Bobby Eaton) will be performing in Britain, for the first time ever, on October 22nd 2011 at the Caribbean Centre in Coventry with full orchestral accompaniment. This is their only UK concert. The group will be performing many of their own recordings as well as songs they wrote for other artists. The evening will be a celebration of Detroit’s important contribution to the rare soul scene and will only feature music recorded in the Motor City. In recognition of this essential event, we are proud to resurrect this 200
  17. The Tempos Story The lineage of vocal groups, male and female, in the 1950s and 60s can be as difficult to establish as any family tree. Line-ups would frequently change as individual members came and went, group names could be dropped and replaced completely or entirely different personnel brought in to replace decampers. On a few occasions in the 1960s several different groups, with the same name, managed to co exist. An entire book, devoted to the various and varied formations that represented 'The Drifters', provides a clear indication of the complexity of personnel peripety through the de
  18. People who reside in the largest city, or the capital, of a country seem to have a pompous air of superiority and an apparent belief that they are, in some way, better than their fellow citizens. This is certainly true in Britain, where most Londoners appear to believe that they are life’s leaders — the special, ‘chosen’ ones who were sent to civilize and refine the rest of us. How else could the BBC ‘Soul Britania’ television series manage to attribute the entire development of black music in our country to the people and places in the capital? In America, people from New York and Los Angeles
  19. Part 2 and Part 3 of this lengthy look at "... visiting Detroit" by Rob Moss Detroit’s musical and cultural legacy to the world has few equals. Forgetting the Motown and associated soul people of the 1960s and beyond for a second, the line up of native sons and daughters is awesome. Jackie Wilson, Aretha Franklin, Little Willie John, Hank Ballard, John Lee Hooker and Della Reese amongst scores of others, pioneered all shades of R&B and Blues throughout the 1950s, the city was a hotbed of jazz, counting luminaries like Kenny Burrell, Marcus Belgrave, Hank Jones within its considera
  20. SOUL DEEP - A critique by Rob Moss. When the news that the BBC were to commission a series on the history and development of Soul music was announced, the sense of anticipation and excitement amongst devotees was palpable. After virtually ignoring this music, as an art form, for over 40 years, the Corporation was finally going to apply their considerable resources, influence and money to the type of 'in depth' scrutiny and investigation usually only reserved for so called 'mainstream' entertainment. Finally, a major broadcaster would not only have access to information and
  21. The recent Live 8 thing made me realise just how lucky we are. Unlike those unfortunate millions who happily accept and enjoy geriatric rockers churning out the same old tried, tested and then tried again rubbish at every conceivable excuse for a benefit concert, we enjoy a style of music that seems to be constantly evolving, developing and expanding. Whether it be records you didn't know before, or missed when they were first 'discovered', obscurities on tiny labels that have only recently come to light, previously unreleased material that the major companies have been sitting on, gloriously
