    Cos if you know your history
    It's enough to make your heart go..........
  • Here's a link to the obit I wrote for The Times, which ran in last Thursday's paper:
  • aka Earl Van Dyke and the Soul Brothers. Paid a pittance for years by Berry Gordy and only found fame ( and hopefully some fortune) in later life (see Henry's comments). "That Motown Sound" was their defining album, all the instrumental versions of the greats are here Nowhere To Run, My Girl, How Sweet It Is, Too Many Fish In The Sea, plus some of their own hits, Soul Stomp, 6 By 6 and All For You.
    Christ, I wish I could turn back the clock to 1965, Charlton, the music and the birds! Saturdays have never been the same.
  • I had not spotted this news (sorry Nigel, I do not read the Times)

    Very sad indeed.
