"Some fine choices there John and I have quite a few of them. I have never listened to the B side of 'Hold me Tight' or 'Aint nothing but a Houseparty' so will do so later on."

"Two eBay vinyl purchases; the latter being Kent 25; the Kent compilations still mean a lot to me, they were the best source for dancable Soul when I was a very young mod. "
