Ok -encouraged by Tony Vinyl Master -Here's what 45's I'm currently playing.. :D

3872038721

Starting from the bottom right..
Locksmith "Chinese funk song" ..a great tune on the Brit-funk scene of 1979-80, this was produced by Harvey Mason(More from him later..), who scored some big hits- this is fantastic, and a perfect example..
38722

Peter Brown " Do you wanna get funky.." -Disco/funk from '77 -rare now in the UK as everyone wants the sample..
38723
Chairmen of the board " Elmo James" just a great soul thing from '72 -I really like C.O.T.B. -more of them later..
38724
My personal favorites -Level 42 " Are you hearing" B/w "Return of the handsome rugged man"
-a slice of early '80's Jazz-funk, the "A" being good, but the flip sounds like all the best of the fusion bands put together!!
38725
David Joseph "You can't Hide" -a UK Club-classic from 1983 full of bass-synths and huge hooks-this was a huge pirate-radio hit at the time -love it!
38726
Harry J " Liquidator" -a little bit of proper Ska now, and an anthem in the UK (..and not just for Chelsea Football/soccer club!) -this tune was one of my earlist memories from maybe 1971? ..it's attached to a memory of being in a kitchen, and my mother dancing to it on the radio -stuck with me ever since -also reminds me of many times getting drunk drinking Guiness, and my wife smiling at me over a crowded bar.....
38727
Rufus/Chaka Khan "You got the Love" US Import..
...when I'm in a really good/relaxed mood -nothing better than a little Chaka..love this track, given to me many years ago by someone special..
38728
Booker T and the M.G's " Green Onions" London Atlantic Original 1964
Some Proper "Mod" now -as the first time I heard this was watching "Quadrophenia" in 1979
( ..when I proberly shouldn't have been watching it, as I was quite young..and naive!)
-this was one of the key moments in the film, and had such an impact on me -this copy given to me by a friend recently, as he knew the I wanted a nice UK original..
38729
And finally for today..
Skipworth and Turner "Thinking about your love" UK Picture sleeve..
Always in my top 10 fave 80's funk/soul tracks, this was such a huge "Turntable hit" in the UK, played by Richard Skinner (Ex.Radio 1 DJ-influential guy!) a LOT in 1985!

-and that concludes my 45 selections for today -be sure to have another look tomorrow when there'll be funk and soul 45's on my turntable..!
All the best, Chris DiscoBiscuit

"Green Onions" says actually 1962 on the label I've just noticed -it says '64 on the reissue! ..strange..!

When I first put this on it sounded like the reincarnation of Barry White (as it was on 33 rpm). First 45rpm 12" EP I've owned. Sounds exactly like the CD. Exactly. Actually so similar it makes me smile at how good of a job my system does of not coloring the sound of vinyl. I'm also guessing the album was recorded digitally to a common master, although they clearly did a good job of mastering the record or it would have sounded crappy.

These guys are new to me -think I'll check them out on the 'tube -on the strength of the cool sleeve alone!
