The much loved Record Company adverts - I particularly love the SUE -PER-SOUL-IC-SOUNDS new catchphrase for SUE records and the now incredibly rare Albums advertised. Also Bell records support for Oscar Toney Jr, James Carr, James & Bobby Purify plus their impressive new compilation album "Bell's Cellar Of Soul". Soul City with their consistently looked forward to advert. Full back page spread of Tamla Motown album releases and latest singles...

A timey reminder that it was just The nite-clubs and the DJ's that inspired the British Soul scene Blues & Soul played a crucial part in its meteoric rise through the decades.

Essential reading and preservation of our history and culture.
