Buey ( London, U.K)

As a young mini-mod I started going to Soul/Scooters nights in Bucks and London in about 1983 graduating to nighters about a year later, like many kids in the 80's I was really influenced by the sixties mafia of Keb & Guy but also Adam, Ady, Ian Clarke, Soul Sam and of course Butch. Great venues, nighters most weekends and a mate with a VW Scirocco made for happy days.
My collecting started seriously in 1986 I bought: The commands - Hey It's love and then as a new release: James Cobin & the prime cut. Then House, Acid Jazz and so on took over for a bit... Loved getting back into Northern in the late 90's did a bit of guest DJ-ing, broke things like Lil Mary Staten (on GME) at the 100 club, ran a small night called ARSE > A Rare Soul Evening < in London and generally made a fool of myself at Cleethorpes including a memaorable journey with Al Wilson singing the Snake to me in the 1st class carriage of our train.
Had a few breaks from the scene (kids)(prison) nowadays I collect across the board
Loving the European scene and look back fondly at a blessed life of great moments, great friends and great music - we've had a great crack of the whip and I for one never thought I'd be dancing to the Springers "Nothing's too good for my baby" in a ballroom in Germany when I first heard it in 1984."
