All the remixes of his I've heard are ace, but all his original productions leave me cold. Weird.




:cool:
I bought the whole remix package as a digital download a couple of years ago after buying the Omar one in 2010??? maybe 2011??? which is a great track on digital, but sadly missing the Stevie vocal & you're right Fez, I'm still waiting for somebody to introduce me to a really good track by him.
This is my fave remix one though...

Jackie Wilson had no problem luring me from a self-imposed record buying ban until the new year. Released when he was in a coma, following his on- stage heart attack, it includes
which makes me go weak at the knees :cool:

Then there's the Bobby Bland I bought myself for my birthday,
and the Dynamics with the song Pete Meaden ripped off for the High Numbers/Who first single, and the Gene Faith single, from an all-nighter dealer's box, and the Liz Damon's Orient Express version of this Betty Everett LP track, and The Crystals Da Doo Ron Ron, bought to complete my recreation of the 4th side of the Quadrophenia soundtrack, with original UK 45 releases

seeing as you asked:

  1. "Night Train" (James Brown) –Pye
  2. "Louie Louie" (The Kingsmen) – Pye
  3. "Green Onions" (Booker T. & the M.G.'s) – London
  4. "Rhythm of the Rain" (The Cascades) – Warner Bros
  5. "He's So Fine" (The Chiffons) – London
  6. "Be My Baby" (The Ronettes) – London
  7. "Da Doo Ron Ron" (The Crystals) – London
Oh, and a great Jackie Wilson double sider and a lovely Pye R&B copy of Smokestack Lightnin', that I like to imagine was owned and carefully cared for by some young mod, dreaming of being the next Brian Jones.

There'll have been others I can't recall :oops: :D

Poking around in Eastbourne again.

For once a random £3.00 gamble paid dividends. Quality gospel funk that seems to have flown under the radar :hmm:
Another dozen assorted throw away Northern (and a little quality as well), disco and the like
Gladys Knight & the Pips LP on Buddah (is there a charity shop in the UK that doesn't have at least one Gladys Knight in one format or another?) Barry White and Esther Phillips for £2.00 from Oxfam
Ebay :cool: :D

Bought a load more at the weekend - uncovered a charity shop stash of Philadelphia Harold Melvin and Lou Rawls singles and an unexpected The Facts of Life - A Hundred Pounds of Pain. I bought it, despite already having a copy and the Lenny Welch original. A great Les McCaan LP from a Bexhill junk shop. Load of OKish 50p soul and reggae 45s. But, my favourite was

Mint vinyl, most likely because the imagined boy who unwrapped it on his 14th birthday, filed it away unplayed, such was his disappointment that it wasn't the latest from Cliff and the Shadows. Worth 50 pence for the woodcuts alone, but it was a pleasant start to today's listening :)

Fez909 I have enough problem not buying when sober, so have a strict 2 pint limit on opening Discogs :D

Got Pete Wylie's Sinful album recently. I kind of liked Sinful in the 80s, bought the single, but didn't think it was good enough to go for an album. Turns out it's the worst song on the album. Bah. This is another one of those albums I could have been enjoying for years.
I also only recently bought the second Teardrop Explodes album. Could have been loving that since the 80s too.
All those wasted years.
I wonder how they would have fitted into my teenage brain. Soul Mining by The The blew my mind as a teen, but I've maybe played it too much to affect me now. Music is more powerful to the youth.
