Crate Digging: Bob Jeffries
The soul DJ will be appearing at the Scottish Soul Weekender 2013 - here are his top 5 records
Spoonie G – ‘The Godfather’
Bassline, horns and that voice. Huge Club 9/Hattonrigg tune.
Trouble Funk – ‘Pump Me Up’
About '85 I ran all-dayers at the Bobby Jones in Ayr. Two buses from Brum. Whistles and cowbells – you know the score!
C+C Music Factory featuring Deborah Cooper – ‘Pride (Deeper Love)'
Outstanding vocals, and in the early days of the Tunnel Club in Glasgow and the Piv all-dayers. It’s a blue print record for a host of vocal house records that came after.
Kenny Carvajal featuring John Pierce – ‘My Words’
Southport Connoisseur Corner 2003, and I got John up with me to sing over the instrumental. Awesome!
Sam Dees – ‘After All’
A beat ballad slays the soul scene in Scotland, and Sam sang to an open mouthed crowd at Tom Jackson's Kilt gig in Newmains. Tears down the face, there was such an immense intensity.
