“After scouring record shops, markets and the internet for the best music for our sets we became increasingly frustrated at the cost and poor quality of the records that we wanted to play out. Whilst being happy to use digital alternatives in their place, good quality WAVs for some of the more obscure tracks became near impossible to find. So from day one we began to make a list of all the tracks we played out that were unobtainable on vinyl and those we could only have dreamt of playing that it seemed were lost to time. This list became the bedrock for Deptford Northern Soul Club Records, and with the help of Northern fans up and down the UK it grew to the point where we began searching for the rights and the highest quality audio to reissue. We are so excited to begin sharing releases soon. KTF!” Will and Lewis, 2019
Two classic sides from the Michigan soul singer with a stash of soul goodies in his repertoire. The original pressing of ‘What Good Am I Without You’ from 1967 on Jacklyn Records goes for just over £200 and one listen explains why. Featuring an emotional heart-wrenching vocal soaked with flying strings over an impulsive rhythm, it’s a lovelorn anthem; an emotional rollercoaster…
Backed with ‘That Certain Little Something’ from the Groovy label 12 months earlier. A funky guitar-led scorcher with a bluesy brass break and a spin and drop chorus aided by a rampaging drummer. Two must-have sides from Fletcher, a child prodigy, who found success in Chicago in the mid-‘60s which led to shows with Stevie Wonder and BB King among others.
