    Just Add Vinyl 2 месяца назад The Crow was an essential for me. Very cool to finally have a copy on vinyl. I was a little disappointed with the pressing quality, mine had some issues. Awesome you highlighted Soul Slabs from Colemine records!! I know Terry and Bob and have an assortment of singles and pressings from the label. Fantastic music and always, always pristine quality pressings and packaging. My wife and friends spent the better part of RSD hanging out at their record store. I didn't pick up Soul Slabs yet but I did grab Ben Pirani's How can i talk to my brother. Happy spinning! ~Corey

    DJ Highnoon 2 месяца назад Just Add Vinyl Sorry to hear The Crow had some issues. Hope that you can get it sorted out. That soundtrack is just a mandatory album for the Mrs and myself. Had a copy in the car for years lol. Terry and Bob are about to get every penny I can spare in the weeks to come. At times I was literally bouncing the soul was so pure, so raw. Great soul music should be gritty and raw, full of energy and tension, and this album just kept delivering it. I can see I have a lot of work to do in their catalogue but oh the fun I will have. And top notch pressings too. Really great stuff from them. Thanks for watching sir. It is truly appreciated.

    The Vinylverse 2 месяца назад You had a very good day Tim! I enjoyed hearing you go on about the Coalmine box. Very nice monologue to close out about friendship and being there for those who are hurting. We are all here for each other. The VC is a special place. I know who you are speaking of and my heart definitely goes out to them.
  • DJ Highnoon
    DJ Highnoon 2 месяца назад The Vinylverse Thanks Bill. Spoke with one this evening, nervous but ready. Tomorrow is the big day. Colemine is just killer soul. But in the days to come, the Crate I referenced is even more goodies ;)

E. 2 месяца назад (изменено) Hi Tim, I too bought some regular stock to help my small store out plus picked a few RSD goodies...that poppies looks really in my wheelhouse...ooooo😱that Otis is just a beauty!

  • DJ Highnoon
    DJ Highnoon 2 месяца назад L. E. You really are an amazing soul Lis. You are the true embodiment of pure love and peace! :) and we all love you for it. The poppies comp, yes. Mid to heavy psych, got some good fuzz, good midday mind stuff. That Otis though..... whooowheeee he held court, took ya to church, and did it all in 20 minutes. What he did in those few moments bands cant do on an entire tour. The crowd was in awe. If you see it, please get it. I will look out for one or 6 as well. It's amazing. Take care, and hope all is well there. :)
  • Michigan Record Club
    Michigan Record Club 2 месяца назад I am impressed with your knowledge. You really know your soul. I can really see your love for the genre. Growing up in Michigan in the 60s and 70s. Northern soul and Motown soul is a part of my soul. Love your picks. Bill Young
  • DJ Highnoon
    DJ Highnoon 2 месяца назад Michigan Record Club Thanks Bill. Soul was something I grew up around. All my friends parents had soul and funk in their collection, and as hip hop changed in the early 80s from.drum machine to samples, that sound just became infectious. I was obsessed with finding out the original songs and wanted to hear more. The Northern Soul sound became so essential to me in my 20s and 30s, and I feel I dont really know enough about that era. Always looking for more. Thanks for watching and commenting Bill, hope you are doing well. Steve talks about you quite a bit, and I'm always keeping you in my thoughts.
  • B Side Records
    B Side Records 2 месяца назад Awesome pickups Tim! I really haven't seen that many people show The Crow so I'm glad you got your hands on that one.
  • DJ Highnoon
    DJ Highnoon 2 месяца назад B Side Records Thanks Beth. I'm shocked that more havent shown it, it was one of the better ones from the 90s, and fit the movie do well.
  • Miss LadySoul
    Miss LadySoul 2 месяца назад (изменено) Nice picks Tim! Never heard of the Soul Slabs album; it seems very nice. I’ll definitely look that up. Thanks for sharing 😊 ~Eve

    Linda Leg 2 месяца назад Real dig that Crow and Soul Slab Tim. Thanks for sharing! Andre’
  • DJ Highnoon
    DJ Highnoon 2 месяца назад Linda Leg The Crow was a no brainers for me, great soundtrack. Check out Colemine Records, incredible stable of that classic independent soul sound. I can see I won't be putting this on the shelf for quite some time. Take care Andre' always good to hear from you.
  • HorrorBiz
    HorrorBiz 2 месяца назад I also grabbed the Crow. I think i need the soul slabs tho. Magical AF
  • DJ Highnoon
    DJ Highnoon 2 месяца назад HorrorBiz Soul Slabs really impressed me. Looking forward to seeing what you grabbed. Thanks Chad.
  • Jeff Kempin
    Jeff Kempin 2 месяца назад Looks like you got some cool stuff. I dig the Otis Redding and the Soul Slabs especially. Glad you had a great RSD.
  • DJ Highnoon
    DJ Highnoon 2 месяца назад Jeff Kempin Thanks brother. The Otis is right up your alley. The Soul Sides box I think I will have a way to share so stay tuned. Hope all is well there brother.
  • Chris Has The Spins
    Chris Has The Spins 2 месяца назад Nice RSD pickups Tim!  I really wanted that psych comp, but unfortunately my shop didn't get any in.  I did pick up that Booker T / Otis set and holy crap, Otis was on fire!!  Jealous of that Soul Slabs box....my shop had one but I just couldn't squeeze it into the budget!  Thanks for the update my friend!
  • DJ Highnoon
    DJ Highnoon 2 месяца назад Chris Has The Spins You said it best, he packed 3 hours in 20 minutes. And yup, I was spent. He rocked it out of me lol.
  • Chris Has The Spins
    Chris Has The Spins 2 месяца назад Lol exactly!! such a short little set but it packed the punch of a 3 hour show!  I'm dying picturing you on the floor just done and put through the ringer from the late great Otis haha!  Sounds good on the Soul Slabs....I'm going to throw it on my wantlist on Discogs!
  • DJ Highnoon
    DJ Highnoon 2 месяца назад Chris Has The Spins Otis killed me. By the time Tenderness came on, I was done. I was laying on my floor done. So raw, so powerful and it was barely 20 minutes. If you can get the Soul Slabs comp later do it. It is amazing stuff.
  • Tyger Tyger
    Tyger Tyger 2 месяца назад Do you know about or have any releases by an outfit called Capsoul? Short for Capitol City Soul (Columbus, Ohio). The hype sticker says they lasted about 5 years (early 70s) and released mostly 45s. Just wondering if they are similar to the Soul Slabs you picked up. The one I have is a 2 lp set called Eccentric Soul 001. Thanks
  • Tyger Tyger
    Tyger Tyger 2 месяца назад @DJ Highnoon Excellent!!! Thanks so much.
  • DJ Highnoon
    DJ Highnoon 2 месяца назад Tyger Tyger I had to look them up to see if it was the one I was thinking of, with the DJ that started his own label. I remember hearing about Capsoul, but could never find the vinyl (might have to break down and get the cd). I would say maybe Colemine started like that in spirit, but they evolved with not only a decent stable of current artists, they are also getting reissues done of hard to find expensive records, and even have a store front in Cleveland. You can tell in the quality that this is a passion for them. And they are still growing.
