RossyBoy's Endless Memories


I've cheated a little on Track 16 by chopping out the D.J. on this rocksteady 12" to let Sandra Reid's vocal stand alone - much improves it, in my humble opinion. And, in case you were wondering, Track 19 is the original of the LaBelle monster hit. Should be some nice ones for your collections and listening pleasure here. Let me know !

Red Hot Souldies - 03 - Chapter Three - Just Cruisin', Officer


Maybe Guy is the only one of us who ever did cruise Whittier Boulevard, but that doesn't mean that the rest of us don't care about lowriding music ! Mello whistles these tunes while he's polishing his Ranfla ! Rose sings doo-wop while she does the hoovering ! Billy and I can't sing a note, but we nod along as we dig through those crates, or rifle eBay for bargains ! We promised you classics and rarities in this series and you'll get plenty of hard-to find tunes of the very best sweet and slow variety in this cruising set. Enough to qualify us for honorary membership of Brown Pride, we hope ! For we do know our stuff, and this Chapter will be hard to follow, 'cause this is As Good As It Gets !!!

RossyBoy's Begged, Borrowed & Stolen



Here we go again ! There have been a few good examples of songs using Stevie Wonder's fabulous riff from "Hey Love". I was listening to Roc Marciano's modern X-rated rap recently and, while that kind of tune wouldn't make the cut for this kind of comp, it did remind me of the classic De La Soul version from 1991. I've also included an old favorite of mine from the Anglos; this particular mp3 is a bit better than my own scratchy rip from vinyl which  is almost completely played out now since it was purchased in the mid-Sixties. Enjoy ! RossyBoy

Track list:
01 - The Soul Notes - Don't Make Me Beg
02 - Teena Marie - Hey Boy
03 - Phyllis Dillon & Friend - Tell Me You Love Me (All The Time)
04 - Pretty Boy Lamar - I Am In Love
05 - Little Buster - You Were Meant for Me
06 - The Soul Survivors - Lover To Me
07 - Oscar Weathers - When You Steal
08 - The First Generation - Give Him Up
09 - Gloria Dennis - How Can I Be Sure (That It's Love)
10 - Othello Robertson - Come On Home
11 - Ruben Studdard - I Can't Make You Love Me
12 - Sam Taylor Jr - Hey Girl
13 - Yvonne Harrison - Take My Hand
14 - Jesse James - I Know I'll Never Find Another One
15 - Roy Roberts - Got To Have Your Love
16 - Dynamic Five - Baby Baby I Love You
17 - Jimmy Braswell - One More Chance
18 - De La Soul - Talkin' Bout Hey Love
19 - The Entertainers - Beg Me
20 - Three Shades Of Soul - Being In Love

Enjoying great success in Philadelphia, they attracted the attention of record producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff.

RossyBoy's Still Coming On Strong



I hope you find this comp uplifting - just like that big ol' hyena is about to be 
uplifted. This one maybe came a little bit quicker than you might have been expecting, 
but what else is there to do when it's cold and wet outdoors ? No more counting of 
the volumes or weekly deadlines; comps will just come when the mood dictates. I've 
been raiding the All-Sorts Drawer for this one. So, just like old times, there are a 
few (only a few!) covers and a few reggae tracks too. But then, I always believed 
reggae got soul ! There are a couple of really modern ones. What I love about retro 
soul is that you can hardly hear the join between today and yesteryear. There's 
blue-eyed soul; there's brown-eyed soul; there's probably even cross-eyed soul ! 
Track #4 is a modern U.K. version of a great song by Donny Hathaway.
The Len Barry penultimate track is the original of Dean Courtney's Northern Soul monster
(Len actually helped pen it); it only got an E.P. release in 2007. But hey, this is 2014, 
you've got to keep moving on ... and on ! I hope you enjoy this latest comp - it's 
really difficult when there is so little feedback. I'm always grateful to those who say 
thank you, but usually that's just out of politeness before they even hear the comp. 


In the end, it's probably the download numbers that are the only partial indicator of 

interest. To be  truthful, I only do this kind of thing for myself anyway. In twenty 
years time, if a nice tune gets remembered, in part because I loved it and shared it 
on a compilation, then my efforts will not have been in vain. Yours, in Soul,      
                                                                                          
 RossyBoy.

Familia Souldiez Vol. 13 - Sentimental Journey


- No Password Needed -

Life can be a pain sometimes. Our poor brother Chi Town has been in real pain and has had to sit this one out. He's on the mend, thankfully - get well soon, Bro ! My own pain is a bit lesser. We're spreading the work around the family to make meeting this monthly deadline a bit easier. So I'm the producer for this month. Maybe it's just because it's Number 13, but this computer work is like having teeth pulled for me. Still I made it to this point with a little help from my buddies. The G MAN really came through once again - a cracking cover and also three top-notch rarities from him this time round (he must have a treasure trove hidden specially). And the rest of the familia rallied round with some nice tunes for your listening pleasure. I hope this baby is well up to the high standards we have set ourselves. Let us know !
