Does anybody still go to Camber Sands on holiday as I did. Once you could camp on the beach, light a fire, get your little battery record player out and have a good time.
Listening to the great visionary, Tony Hall on Radio Luxembourg, Camber is where my love of Soul Music started. Then DJ’s had fifteen-minute slots. And, in one of those slots he played Sam Cooke’s Another Saturday Night. Sam Cooke may have made better records but I’d never heard the like of it before. There are moments in everybody’s life that are absolutely significant; this was one of them…..
From sand in my shoes to obsession in just two minutes; It was then that I started to collect and DJ, which, in turn, has fitted and started over the years. However, the obsession has never, ever waned over the many years in between. You see it’s in the rhythm and in particular, the voice. As Mike Raven said about Otis Redding’s “I’ve been loving you too long”, it’s probably the most soulful song ever sung, but it’s the voice not the song.
Street Sounds Vinyl is back and it’s looking to gather in those who already know and some new disciples. We don’t walk on water but the rhythm makes us feel as if we can.
The quest to make the sound of Street Sounds Vinyl "vinyl authentic" has been a mission accomplished. All the equipment has been sourced and renovated and is vintage; the Linear Concorde twin deck unit is one of the best made of the era and survives despite thousands of hours of playing and being carting from venue to venue.
The Shure cartridges and Matamp speaker boxes, which contain Celestion units, give a brilliant analogue sound. A sound that is not achievable on CD or MP3. The sound is as the mixing engineer and the producer heard it in the studio. That was important to them then as it is to Street Sounds Vinyl now,
Amplification and Graphic Equaliser are vintage Peavey.
