Jackie Moore December 1971 Interview
BRITAIN HAS always been quick to accept a new Soul sister and, if anything, the respect accorded to a female singer in this country far surpasses that which she can expect to receive in her homeland. The 60's were filled with distaff singers in th...

Jackie Moore September 1975 Interview
Jackie Moore is a pleasing young lady who exploded on to the scene back in 1971 with a multi-million worldwide selling single called "Precious Precious" — but then who was never allowed to really capitalise on her breakthrough since her record compan...

Johnnie Taylor August 1974 Interview

Johnnie Taylor November 1976 Interview
Originality is the thing that succeeds above all else according to Mr T. He's currently working on a number of diverse projects which will spotlight his multiple talents… AT LONG last, it seems as if the musical world is waking up to the ta...

The Tymes May 1975 Interview
There are two specific reasons why it is always a pleasure for me to interview and then present a feature on the Tymes. Firstly, because they are such a great group of people but I won't proceed any further on that level because it will only make the...

The Tymes December 1974 Interview
TO ALMOST everybody in the audience, the Tymes were a bunch of new guys who had just struck success for the first time with the bouncy Philly hit, "You Little Trustmaker" and you could almost feel the disappointment when the five in-between-boppers s...

Earl Klugh May 1977 Interview
"It's nice to see the good guys makin' it", says our David Nathan. In this instance he's referring to the up-and-coming Earl Klugh. WITH ALL the continued emergence of jazz-funk and jazz crossovers, it's a really good feeling to welcome th...

Bettye Swann June 1972 Interview
WE'VE said it before and we'll no doubt say it again — Britain's soul fans are far more loyal to their favourite girl singers than to their male counterparts. Names such as Irma Thomas, Doris Duke, Margie Joseph and Betty Harris live on in our minds ...

Faith Hope and Charity September 1975 Interview
The name "Faith, Hope & Charity" may well be familiar to avid soul fans who remember their big hit of a couple of years back — "So Much Love". With the demise of the company for whom they recorded that single and subsequent signing with Sussex Record...

Viola Wills 1974 Interview
IT CAME as something of a surprise to the lady to learn that her name was already familiar to a hard core following of fans via recordings she made with Barry White producing back in the mid-Sixties but Viola Wills is no stranger on the British soul ...

Eddie Floyd March 1972 Interview
IT'S three years since Stax' Eddie Floyd last played for British audiences: "It seems to me that the discotheques are the only people keeping Soul alive because I've only heard about three Soul records on the radio since I got here a week ago. And at...

Eddie Floyd August 1976 Interview
"MALACO? It's got a great future. It reminds me of Stax in the early days — there is that kind of atmosphere about the place and the people there." When those words come from someone as knowledgeable as Eddie Floyd, you have to sit up and take not...
