Soul Music Trivia Question

Recommended Posts

I read about Steve Bookstein one time and I remember his connection with Ian Levine and that band.

I know quite a few things 'off the top of my head'.

Respekk!

I'm a former proof reader (and a degree and Masters in Psychology) Craig.

I am totally overloaded with completely useless information, mate!

Nah, your questions are very good. Somebody would only right-click on one of mine anyway. :-)

OK Stu, and thanks for the compliment!

Right then team.........in 1965, a songwriter/producer cut a record, he hated his voice on it, and asked the boss man not to release it, bossman granted his wishes, and it didnt get released....then, can you name the singer and the song?

Sorry i cant give you any more clues yet!

I'll have a stab at this one. It's the obvious answer but is it Frank Wilson and Do I Love you (Indeed I Do)?

I know Wilson had 250 demo copies released before asking them to be scrapped. As every Northern fan knows, two copies survived (one in the possession of your pal, Kev Roberts at one time).

At least if this is incorrect it gave the opportunity to talk about one of my very favourite tunes of all time. ;-)

I have a few mates from Wigan days, Craig. One of those guys used to talk about Kev owning it and carrying it around in a special case he had for it. I also read it in a book somewhere too I think. I reckon the story of Frank Wilson and that record is legendary - one that most people who know or have read anything about Northern Soul will be aware of. It IS all over the Internet but that's not where I originally know about it from.

PS Your questions ARE very hard! You just hit me on a good one there...

Sorry Stu, you are wrong (for once!!) but a very good , logical guess, fact is i only ever met Edwin in '66 at The Dungeon Club.

I apologise for being suspicious, but the way you went straight to the correct answer, brilliant!

OK, a clue, his initials are included in a certain brand of car...............the same brand i drove for 15 odd years! http://www.websmileys.com/s

And why is the smiley at the end of the last sentence, not the one i selected?......i chose the looking over the spectacles one!

Could it be MG - Marvin Gaye?

No............................... I said included..not the whole name (as in MG)

Okay, I'm focusing on his initial being within a car marque that is also made up of initials...

And I'm thinking BMW...

or TVR maybe?

Am I on the Right Track (as Billy Butler would say)?

I can't imagine anything getting that close to Barry White. ;-)

Come on Stu!..Im going to have to withdraw that "Respekk" gong I awarded you!!!!

Thing is, if I give one more clue re that, the answer will be as plain as the nose on your face.

OK, heres a clue...........hes a member of a family in which others have had chart success, not a lot, but some.......???????
