Soul Solution Sampler, Volume 1

20 years ago, way back on the last Friday in January 1995, Sean Hampsey, Kev Briscoe, myself and Andy 'Tats' Taylor started what was to be almost 5 years of monthly Soul nights.

Here is the very first 'sampler tape' - in digital format, that was given away on that first night, I hope you'll enjoy it:

Welcome to the First of what will be many great SOUL nights at the PITCHES. It’s taken a couple of years in the making but it’s been worth the wait!
The format is simple. The very best in SOUL music from across the decades. Crossover and Modern from the 70’s and 80’s, together with best of the new 90’s releases and classics from the 60’s. (You will also hear a few underplayed 60’s and perhaps some you’ve never heard before!)
The enclosed tape is representative of the music policy of Soul Solution, and there will be no compromise! The time is right for this type of event and this is the first of it’s type in the Rotherham area.

Great memories indeed Kev - and might I add this isn't just a copy from the cassette tape, but a recording of all the tracks direct from their original format & 'lovingly remastered' !!!
