A lovely little offering from Salsoul.

Extended versions of the A side of this 7" pressing feature on both sides of both of the 12" pressings but this edit is itself a great, mid tempo, spacey Disco outing that deservedly gets it's extended versions ... See full review

For all the undeniable attention that 'Rockit' got for its wider influence on popular music and music videos, music lovers would equally have been glad of the inclusion of the tracks on the B side. Two of Herbie's Disco masterpieces included with a ... See full review

I suspect that the common albeit illogical practice of releasing imports in the UK with shortened 12" mixes had something to do with the way in which the official charts were composed in the 70's where singles that exceeded a specific duration (I believe ... See full review

For anyone who hasn't noticed, one of the engineer's on this UK house 12" is none other than Roots Manuva who presented me with a copy whilst we caught up (after a couple of years) at Cavern Records in Lewisham shopping centre while both he and Earl did ... See full review

Had the pleasure of attending a club night simply titled 'Ambassadors' at the Ambassadors Hotel in Euston, London as a 16 year old schoolboy and witnessing the mighty Daryl Pandy smash it live. Awesome!

It almost breaks my heart to give this a ★★★ rating.

On the whole the LP sounds like the result of recording some lads jamming to a pretty average standard. But arising from this are possibly the finest versions of the classics 'Just Because' and ... See full review

One of three or four records of the thousands that I have that I ever felt compelled to write my name on. Most of them were Electro tunes ('High Noon' by Two Sisters for example was another) inspired by the growing influence of the grafitti scene on ... See full review
posted a comment on Shirley & Lee* - I'm Gone / Lee Goofed. about 1 year ago
Two absolute gems for the price of one. 'I'm Gone' is a much loved classic 50's R&B smooch of the very earliest years of the 45rpm 7" record and certainly one of the first Aladdin singles on the new format. Coupled here with 'Lee Goofed', a great ... See full review
