Thanks for the info folks. I reckon I'll be checking out an album of her stuff sometime soon then...

Cheers. :ok:

If you sit really quiet after scarfing a bucket of KFC, you can actually hear your arteries harden. ;)

13th May 2003, 13:08
Hello, followed a link back from my stats and found you all talking about Laura Greene :)

I reckon I'll be checking out an album of her stuff sometime soon then

Unfortunately, Laura only had a couple of tracks released so there is no album Im afraid.

You lot actually eat Unlucky Fried Kitten......yuk!

Laura Greene's KFC number can also be found on "Turning my heartbeat up" Various Artists; cd 23 tracks
74321 774012. You can order it through Virgin's mailorder on the web for 9.99.

Also this is a nifty site for spotting those elusive tunes:

Is that the same Soulgirl as the one in the website? If it is let me just say that it's a cool website. I spent ages looking through it as there's so much to see! I'd like to go to Northern Soul night sometime.

Shame Laura never did any albums. I did a search on her and hardly any information showed up at all. :ugh:

If you're into Northern try this site
Soul Source (http://www.soul-source.net/modules/news/)
Another good site to visit is this one

All singing all dancing all night (http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/singingdancing/)

Keep the Faith:ok:

13th May 2003, 22:22
Yes, I am the same Soulgirl and thank you for your compliments.

The other site listed is an excellent source (pardon the pun) of information about the current scene. Lots of diary dates of a soul do near you too :) Go check it out.

Windy... you must be a fan too?

Karen, maybe you could reciprocate by placing a link to PPRuNe on your site - we could certainly do with a few SoulGirls around here to brighten this place up ;)

13th May 2003, 22:42
He don't miss a trick, that Biggles chap y'know. ;) :D

13th May 2003, 22:43
Sure.. I can do that :) Do you have a nice banner or shall I just snag your logo from the top of the page?

Not sure how many sparkly Soulgirls are going to be interested in flying though :D

Stuff the flying - let's talk sparkles :D

I'm not sure of the protocol regarding links, but I'm sure Danny won't mind us playing a bit of nice soulful music in here :p

13th May 2003, 23:29
What a shame your forums have [img] tags turned off .. I could have covered you all in a glittery shower.

So, now that Im here - are you all pilots or a cross section of the flying industry but I do like flying.. it takes me to exotic resorts around the world :)

I havent looked at the rest of the forums - sorry :(

13th May 2003, 23:47
Oh, you'll find all sorts of interesting people posting here Soulgirl. Obviously most have a connection to aviation but by no means all do and everyone is welcome here (so I am told) so stay with us!

Jet Blast is the hideout for most folks who aren't too interested in the more specialist forums here and as you'll see, just about everything gets discussed, argued about, laughed at and cried about here so....

The main team of moderators is made up of professional pilots (mostly airline) but when you get chance to look at some of the other forums you'll see that in the medical forum for instance there are moderators with some degree of background experience in that field. The cabin crew forum is managed by cabin crew (and a pilot!) etc......

There are professionals from all sorts of fields posting here and it really is a place that if you need to find something out you generally can, this thread is a good example! We also have retired folks who enjoy posting here so as you can see it's a broad mix here!

I am a student commercial pilot battling my way slowly through the maze of flight training to hopefully later this year be qualified to apply for a job within the world of commercial aviation. Before that I was a professional jazz musician for my sins. I'm 25 years old.

Jet Blast is the place where lively debate get's mixed with fun tales and a whole host of other topics. The new question time forum is for more serious debate!

Hope you enjoy our cyberspace company and continue to post. If you check the PPRuNe Bashes forum you'll see details of regular get togethers where you can put faces to names. :)

I already meet up with people from another site... scoobynet.co.uk - I might not have a plane but my car certainly flies :D

Anyone else here have a Subaru Impreza?

Soulgirl when I step out of the CP and want to loosen up a little I throw a leg over. :}

An 884 Jawa Laydown - Only way to fly when on the dee ground man (or woman). :E

Hello Soul Girl,
I have to confess that I'm not completely faithful to the cause, as I like other sorts of music as well!:eek:
But as Stuart Maconie said Northern Soul is the most ebulliant music you can find. When I hear tracks Like "Do I love you (indeed I do)" Frank Wilson or Chuck Woods "Seven days is too long" it makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck.

I got into Northern because I found that mainstream music just didn't move me so I when I heard Northern tracks being played on a Sunday night Gospel & Soul show many years ago I realised that there was music out there worth listening to.

Nowadays I'm into any sort of music that's made with feeling, not just to make money.

Keep on Keeping On:ok:

Ps If you really want your scoobie engine to fly put it into a Europa;)

14th May 2003, 02:50
Those "oldies" tracks aren't played that much any more. A bit of snobery goes on about the soul scene even today. I still love them though and freely admit it.

I still buy the occasional bit of vinyl but mostly I have mp3's and CD's now :) Last count I think I had about 16000 or so.

I suppose the title of the thread has kept the usual PPRuNe Scooby suspects out. There's usually a flood of debate every time these cars are mentioned!

Mr L
Shame on you as a moderator you should be setting a good example to us lesser mortals!

PS I can't find the drooling Smilie ;)

14th May 2003, 21:13
Trust you, Big Red :)

Karen, I'd like to welcome you both to JetBlast. :E

14th May 2003, 22:21
LOL - Trust you lot... mind you - there is a better picture of them in the Exeter November photos on my Northern Soul page :)

Nice arent they!

Here we go again :mad: VFE and I were trying to entice this nice, soulful lady and her friends into our hallowed halls and you lot had to start talking about t*ts

I give up :bored:

14th May 2003, 22:38
Hmmm, methinks Soulgirl's site is about to score an exponential increase in tits.., er, sorry, I mean hits.

Let us know the score after a week, Karen.

4MK: The best hits and memories...... :hmm:

(Biggles, what's wrong with the i on your keyboard?)

14th May 2003, 22:54
Hi Soulgirl! Why is it "Northern Soul"? Most of the artists seem to be the same as those I was listening to in the 60s (shows his age!) when it was just "Soul" or, dare I say, "Motown".

Glad to hear that it is going through something of a rennaisance, vastly superior to (c)rap!:ok:

Binos - I was trying to be polite!

Newswatcher try reading the whole thread and following the links..... ;)

15th May 2003, 00:02
Biggles, actually I have read the thread, hence my question, since this phenomena seemed to be something I should have heard about. "Follow the links?" - difficult at work since some of them are "Barred", and so I will have to wait until I get home. But thanks for your patience and understanding in answering my question.:rolleyes:

It's in the 'soulgirl' site under 'Northern Soul' and sorry if I ruffled your feathers ;)

15th May 2003, 00:46
As Biggles said - Northern Soul is just a coin of phrase to epitomise when rare American soul was really and I mean really found in the uk.. the North to be exact.

Yes, we have all heard Motown but Rare Soul is not the same :)

As for extra hits on my site... I am currently getting near 300 a day - not bad for a home page, but its crippling my surfing as they are all listening to my music that I host on a home server LOL

15th May 2003, 16:17
Thanks for the replies, managed to get into the sites yesterday evening. At work we have a filter which, at the sniff of an MP3 file, presents an "access denied" message, with dire warnings of "official reprimands" etc., so can't take the risk!:{ :{

Soulgirl, as someone who remembers the 60s, (and please no jokes about "if you can remember it......") I recall clubbing to "soul" well up to late 60s in Chelmsford (Klu J Club and Chelmsford Corn Exchange , if any other sad people are around). I have in my collection an LP from that era called "This Is Soul"(Atlantic), featuring Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding etc. This is dusted down about once or twice a year, to persuade my 21YO daughter that there was life before middle age!:sad:
