Vinyl Purchase

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

My latest purchase is Blue Magic – Magic #. I only really got it for one track “See Through” that I heard on a Funhouse session but on listening to the whole album I’m really feeling it proper funky/soul vibe to it, just what I love!

If anyone knows of similar sounding albums let me know I’d love to grab some more I know there must be loads out there I’m just not sure what to look for…

Where have I heard this before?

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Got some bits and bobs yesterday this track is on one compilation…. It’s a remix of 2 Way Street from Miss Jones and features the late Big Pun. Now I swear I have heard something that sounds similar/has sampled this track or this track takes a sample from something else? – Any help locating said sample/sound-a-like track would be great because I was going to go to bed an hour ago but its annoying me! I’ve even resorted to translating the sample into words and googling it….

p.s. I think something around 2000/2002 sounding similar or if not an 70/80s track that contains the words(?) “dubby doo,run,run,run” < yes I did try googling that!

I could of cause be making this all up but I’m convinced!

Music Buying (Cheltenham)

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

When you mention any large town/city in the U.K and ask where can I buy music from your immediate and most obvious answer is HMV at the end of the day it’s the only large music chain we now have. But if you dig a little deeper you can find some gem’s in other places. I’m just using Cheltenham as an example as it’s where I spent my last Saturday hunting for CD’s and Vinyl now that I actually have something to spin them on.
