    Earlier I was listening to Béla Bartók "String Quartet No. 5", on the record player.

    You Tube being amazing, they have all of Bartók's String Quartet's uploaded.

    The painting in the background of course, this is Wassily Kandinsky's "Composition VIII" from 1923, Kandinsky's early Bauhaus period....I love Kandinsky, one of my favourite artists.

    This is the Allegro from "String Quartet No. 5":



    Then I listened to Imarhan, who are Tuareg from Algeria and are on City Slang Records which is owned and run by some friends of our's in Berlin:

    City Slang Records

    Imarhan

    The whole Imarhan album is completely astonishing.

    This is Imarhan's song "Tahabort" which is amazing, incredibly intricate guitar work and in general just extraordinary noise, they're on tour throughout Europa this month and also March, we must go and watch them do their thing:

    Savages "T.I.W.Y.G"

    With Savages, it's like mixture of early Siouxsie and The Banshees meeting Big Black head-on....which is obviously good stuff.

    Savages are English band with French girl on the vocals, but she does thing in English.

    They are on Matador Records, very great label, good bands:

    THIS to US is called MULTICULTURISM - English with French, that's OUR VERSION of being Multicultural :smile:

    Frank Wilson "Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)"....simply THE greatest Northern Soul record EVER, original copies now changing hands for £40,000.

    Mr. Lucy, two years ago, during what can only be described as intense and secretive negotiations bought an original Demo 45 for a considerable sum, someone found this out and offered to buy it off him for mega amount and Mr. Lucy rightly said no.

    The picture in the below video 1, obviously a Bootleg, but the sound quality on the video more superior to the next video 2 which shows the original Tamla Motown record from 1965, never released, only 250 copies of the 45 were pressed up and all Demo copies.

    The sound quality of the Wilson and Acklin records not pristine on these videos, but if you like them you can get them on variety of Northern Soul CD Compilations, where sound quality excellent and I recommend you hear them in the original pristine sound.

    Bootleg picture:



    Original Picture:



    IMHO the second greatest Northern Soul record ever, this is Barbara Acklin's "Just Ain't No Love", this is the Brunswick Records release from 1968.

    There was an earlier release on Coral Records pressed up as Italian Demo for some reason.

    I've inherited the eclectic music tastes from my parents, also I've inherited the obsessive record collecting habit from them :smoke: :smile:
