Respond Records Sampler

Respond Records Sampler

Playing tracks by

TRACIE_, MAIN T POSSE, BIG SOUND AUTHORITY, THE QUESTIONS, RESPOND POSSE and more.

Paul Weller's "little Motown wannabe", Respond, a record label he started and managed when The Jam were still playing, but making sense only with The Style Council early years. Some successful singles, by Tracie, some contemporary funk by The Questions and The Main T Posse, some inspired cover versions (Sister Sledge, Heatwave, Isley Brothers, Costello), their own H/D/H team (A-Craze), Paul, Mickey T and Whitey putting their hand and heart very often in the production. It lasted only a couple of years, then, for a while it was "sold" to Polydor 'cos Weller lost interest (and probably money). This is my own selection, not a real "Respond Greatest Hits" but the songs I still like to play 25 years later. Most of the rest of their production is "too eighties, thin and synth" and I can't stand it anymore. Waiting for the European CD re-release of their catalogue, this podcast is coming from 90s Japan CDs source (Trattoria).

The last 4½ minutes of music are missing from this file. I think it's corrupt; you may need to re-load this.

thats really odd Lupine, many thanks for the info. Original mix (and mp3 conversion) was of course complete. Gotta inform mixcloud. How a file corrupts that way with age is a (digital) mystery. Ta! F

Just got a reply from mixcloud support : <Q> I'm afraid replacing audio files on Mixcloud isn't currently available, but this may be something we in future list as a feature <UNQ> :(

Damn. "Sorry, this upload is unavailable in your country due to licensing restrictions " Sounds like it would have been a good one too.
