Joseph Moore

Joseph Moore - I Still Can't Get You


This is one by Joseph Moore on that MAR V LUS label that we never got our hands on in 1966.

Of course we were well into all things on that label that had given us so many great sounds (Alvin Cash, Duettes, J Sayles etc).

These days (1990’s) its a rare sort after piece of vinyl: and as the man said; “you can lead a horse to water: I still can’t get you!”

Paul Thompson

Paul Thompson - Special Kind Of Woman

Special Kind Of Woman

Bouncy Soul style by Paul Thompson, very much unlike a normal Stax track but it is and also very rare. The Sound is not from the studio on East McLemore Avenue in Memphis  – no, this one was done at Muscle Shoals in Colbert County, Alabama. (1970)

Advertising Using Soul Music

Lucozade Mods

Advertising Using Soul Music: The advertising industry, for many, many years have been using Soul music songs as part of their advertising campaign, its theme, or just as a great sound to underpin the advertising message. Soul Music Adverts have become increasingly common.

The 60’s Mods featured in a Lucozade advertisement is a good example.

Advertising Using Soul Music – More Examples

The BBC IPlayer is running an advertising campaign using Northern Soul Music – this is with the help of Indeed I Do by Frank Wilson.

Happiness by Gloria Lynn – for a Ford Mondeo advert.

And in February 2015 Shredded Wheat were running a TV advert featuring a nostalgic look back at the Northern Soul itself complete with a Soulie with his bag. Both this and the Lucozade advert project a story and we can only think were done by the same advertising agency. In the past it wasthe Levi Jeans advertisements that used iconic soul and blues records such as Heard it Through The Grapevine by Marvin Gaye and Mannish Boy by Muddy Waters.

Rodger Collins – She’s Looking Good


She’s Looking Good (1967)

This track was better known by Wilson Pickett who had the hit with this although the original was by Rodger Collins. Rodger was a soul and funk artist who converted to Islam and adopted the new name of Hajji Rajah Kasim Sabrie. This was after touring with Joe Tex – one thing must have led to another…

He gave up the music business in 1974 although more recently he set up his own record company Garden Tree Music which suggests his interest picked up again.
