Souls were well and truly psychedelicized and a few minds freed at our Psychedelic Soul session. There was even an outbreak of actual dancing, a rare but beautiful sight at record club. Their asses did indeed follow. Right on!

As ever, we only had time to scrape the surface, but hopefully those who asked “What exactly is Psychedelic Soul?” will have had their question answered in full. It was a real pleasure to share this music with you all and made me think we should get down and funky more often. Plans are being hatched!

Thanks to all who came, listened and danced to the music, and also a big thanks to Brooklyn’s Slice Of Spice Records for suggesting (and sending over) a few tunes to get us warmed up.

Here are a few comments from the world of social media:

At & Mr has done some ace research on Psychedelic Soul. I’m learning so much!

A brilliant Record Club last night. I’m aching from fast stepping to the full version of Poppa Was A Rolling Stone.

Nice grooves Simon. The Chairmen of the Board tracks were a revelation.

Enjoyed it immensely. The dancing at the back was fantastic.

It was fantastic, thank you!

We’re back on Thursday 12th July for Krautrock 2 when we’ll further explore the kosmische music of 1970s Germany, including tracks from Amon Duul 2, Neu!, Can and Harmonia alongside a full album by Kraftwerk. Details soon.

September’s Record Club: THE SOUNDS OF 1967

GRC67.jpg

Glossop Record Club is back (after a little summer break) on Thursday 14th September for THE SOUNDS OF 1967.

Join us as we dig deeper than the usual Sgt Pepper, flower power and summer of love, with a stack of vinyl that changed the world, playing a mix of singles and album tracks, and of course, an album in full.

And when it comes to which album, we’re spoilt for choice, with classic long players from the likes of Cream, Love, The Who, The Kinks, Buffalo Springfield and The Mothers Of Invention among others to choose from. It was also an amazing year for debut albums with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, The Doors, Leonard Cohen and The Velvet Underground all making their mark (or trying to) on the music world. It’s from that roll-call of debut offerings that we’ll be selecting our full album to play on the night.

So, relax your mind, open your ears and join us at Glossop Labour Club from 8pm. And don’t forget to dig through your records and bring your own sounds of 1967 to share. See you there!
