great stuff there, Slim Buddha! Have never bothered listening to Northern Soul but have a work colleague who's really seriously into it. He goes to various Northern Soul weekends in the UK thruout the year - is Prestatyn one of the main weekenders, I think?

So that was the Geno of Dexy's song, eh? Will have to find out more from my work colleague tomorrow.

Check out the Dexy's lyric "You were Michael the lover" and reference back to the clip I provided. I will try to put more of Geno's stuff up and more Northern Soul generally if there is a demand for it. I have loads of 70s Northern Soul. and loads of "neglected" 70s rock music. (See Tommy Bolin above) Tommy was special.

Generally, I am a bit of a soul head, but I veer into other areas like rock and jazz. Mainly I am a bit of a Gamble/Huff man but HDH I can deal with. What about you?

I think the Dexy's lyric goes

"Academic inspiration, you gave me none, you were Michael the Lover, the fighter that won"

Great song and a good tribute to Geno. In his time Geno had it tough. What a great voice though. You are right about Prestatyn. Big annual NS weekend there. Great miusic!

More of Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band. This is where Kevin Rowlands got the name Dexy's Midnight Runners. Musical style is very different, however.

This Fathers Angels instrumental, Bok to Bach, was a massively popular floor favourite at the Wigan Casino

It wasn't at the epicentre of NS, as the Wigan Casino is sadly no longer with us. Nor is the Twisted Wheel in Whitstone, Manchester. My guess is that it is the Va-Va in Bolton but its only a guess. There were several clubs in Manchester like the Pendulum and the Torch and a few in Yorkshire (Keighley, Sheffield and Leeds) some of which survive so she still had a choice.

One of the odder things about the All-Nighters in places like Wigan and Manchester was the penchant to play, among all the great soul, stuff which had endless repetition in the beat but little else. Bearing in mind the close relationship between NS and football at the time, it's little wonder that this otherwise featureless piece became a stomping monster of a hit in the bigger clubs and even charted in the UK. Proving that in the world of Northern Soul, as long as the walls are sweating along with the crowd, the beat is all that matters.

Getting away from Northern Soul (just for a change) I discovered this while looking for something else and forgot how uniquely brilliant it is. Brazilian Eumir Deodato's treatment of "Also sprach Zarathustra" from 2001-A Space Odyssey. This actually charted in the UK charts in 1973. Other versions are available on youtube but this is the studio job.

I have some Blaxploitation albums with I'm sure that on it. It's fantastic now that I'm paying a bit more attention to it. I love this Quincy Jones one - a makeover of the Loving Spoonful song, Summer in the City (1966) - you won't recognise it from this rendition also released in 1973.

Great version, Auditor. The Quince is a master arranger among his many other talents. Very Happy

Back in the 70s, some of the greatest music was coming out of Detroit and Philadelphia. This band was one of the very best. With the late, great Phillippe Wynne on lead vocals, this is 7.21 mins of the magic that is the Spinners "Rubberband Man", thanks to youtube.

Ah youtube. What's your opinion of George Clinton, Parliament, Funkadelic ? A bit crude at times ?

Good stuff in general but wouldn't be my first preference. More of a Gamble-Huff man and I recognise the talent of the HDH writing machine.

I've been listening to the soundtrack from Juno of late. I quite like the way it makes me feel.

The Moldy Peaches feature strongly - or more specifically Kimya Dawson.

and this

And I rather like this one by Cat Power.

Hello He3 - nice to see you.

Fun with words, catchy tunes and a healthy dose of irreverence.
