    When in the sun, usually Spain, I have to play Blank & Jones, the masters of Chill and Lounge. They've released several stunning albums if this is your bag...

    One for Fenway Frank, a bit of Holland Dozier and Holland after they had left Motown... Sounds like Chairman Of The Board, I notice that General Johnson (their lead singer) had a writing credit on this...

    I've never been to one, although there appear to be several to choose from. I could probably do a decent Motown/Northern Soul night, but there is just one problem...it wouldn't be using vinyl. And that is the thing, all of these nights are vinyl based. A Motown /Northern Soul gem...

    sonyc Steely Dan WOW I bought the album The Royal Scam just for the track Haitian Divorce. One of my fave bands, Gaucho is such a stunning album.

    RO, You Wear It Well is by far my favourite Rod track. I never tire of hearing this, such a cool track, it sounds effortless.

    Here's a Motown puzzle for you... This track was released on a Motown compilation in 2002, It's called 'Lead Me And Guide Me' by Holland and Dozier, recorded I think in 1963. Now, this track is actually called I've Got A Right To Cry, and it has been speculated it was written (and probably produced) by Holland and Dozier - they certainly didn't sing it. Then the fun really starts! Motown have stated that it's LaBrenda Ben singing, although Motown aficionados have stated they think it's a lady called Gloria Jean Williamson... Answers on a postcard! Anyhow, it's a great track and, I would guess at the time this was recorded Motown were fighting against Phil Spector's 'Wall Of Sound', which results - I think - in a Phil Spector sounding arrangement. See what you think...

    This is the sort of stuff I am talking about... I have this on an American 12'' - might be worth a few quid! - like the black cover showing early in the song!

    Most of the stuff I play is a million miles away from what most of you guys listen to. Being someone who has - and would occasionally still now - DJed, most of the stuff I am familiar with is quite commercial. Although having said that I do have some quirky stuff, even on the more commercial spectrum. The love of my life is soul. Old R&B, Motown, Northern Soul, Philly, Salsoul - all the stuff a DJ who wants people to dance should be playing! Although now days my gear - old as it is, mainly Pioneer, but not the latest stuff - is for digital use. But I have kept my vinyl about 4500 singles, loads of LPs and 12'' singles. The most valuable thing I hold is an acetate, I Can Hear Music by Larry Lurex. It was given to me at the Radio One Roadshow in Great Yarmouth in the mid 70s. I'm thinking about selling it...it's not going for under 8.5 K (possibly)!!!
