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!

February’s Record Club: NEW ORLEANS funk & soul

grcneworleans

We’re back on Thursday 9th February for a taste of the funky flavours and soulful sounds of New Orleans.

The Crescent City has long been a cultural melting pot, especially when it comes to music. The birthplace of jazz, home to the blues, not mention rhythm & blues and rock & roll, it has produced more than it’s fair share of influential musicians, songwriters and performers. We’d need more than just one evening to even begin to scrape the surface of all it has to offer, so instead we’ll be focusing on the soul and funk that emanated from New Orleans in the 1960s and 70s. And what better time to celebrate than during the month of Mardi Gras?

Several names loom large from this period – songwriter and producer Allen Toussaint, singer Lee Dorsey, and funk legends The Meters, who also doubled up as the backing band on dozens of classic funk and soul tunes during this time – we’ll be playing records featuring all three. We’ll also hear from Mac Rebennack, the session pianist turned Night Tripper, better known as Dr John, with some heavy voodoo vibes, along with whatever else we can squeeze on the turntable.

See you there!


NEW ORLEANS – funky flavours and soulful sounds

Thursday 9th February from 8pm

Glossop Labour Club, Chapel Street, Glossop, SK13 8AT
