If I understand it correctly, "ordinary" Northern soul refers to the older-discovered records, and "progressive" to those discovered more recently. Is there any particular difference between the records themselves, though, other than when they were picked up on by the scene? --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Here's an interesting item, I think. Johnny Cymbal and Peggy Clinger were in love and inseperable (as well as recording as Cymbal and Clinger) until not long before Peggy died. Sad day.

I've always enjoyed your more familiar works (Detergents, Archies, Cuff Links), and later on I'm going to visit the Yahoo Groups page to hear some of your solo work. I'm certain I'll enjoy it! Howard--Christine Quaite's version of "Long After..." was released here on Laurie. I remember it being listed on Tim Ashibende's voluminous want list. Best, Mark -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
