that could well have been me. i certainly remember bemoaning the "classic rock" feel to mojo at the time; one of the reasons i was at least as comfortable on Q for a while, despite my advancing years!

i think soul is better represented here these days than pop (whatever that may be) and hip-hop.

What do you mean ? Baron was there all the time. On Mojo and here since the beginning. He even took part of the "We Got More Soul" exchange. Don't you remember ?

It was definitely a newbie, so that rules you out, unless you were using an alias, of course.


well, i joined in october '02, i think. probably not me that time.

but yeah, i agree with nikki. mojo seemed to be a bastion of beatles/floyd/byrds/zep/stooges etc when i first arrived. since then a few vociferous posters have waned and people like ced, baron, owen (not that he was new) etc have raised the profile of soul more.

and rightly so. give me candi statton over thin lizzy any day.

I wasn't being clear. I was using my start on the MOJO boards as a sort of year zero. I'm not sure when he started on the MOJO boards, but it was well after that.

He'll always be a newbie to me. :D


Ah, these young whippahsnappers, what to do with them?

What on earth are you thinking of. Have you heard enough Lynott to be able to judge him so harshly against a mediocre collection of soul standards.

Yeah, that's how it seems to me. MOJO (and then BCB) have become much more diverse.


You think? It's felt more classic rock than ever to me recently. Might be all the poll threads about the usual suspects. Maybe not the last week or so but there seemed to be very little else there for most of the spring and early summer.

Not that I've listened to much soul this year anyway but I haven't noticed much of a change and as Griff says hip hop and pop are even less talked about

Except that he doesn't look like me as much as he ought to.


Did I say you were his Keith Richards ?

Well, these things come and go, but in general, I'd say it is more diverse. To the point that I see talk of The Who and Kinks and such and think, "How quaint."

A mediocre collection of soul standards? Are you kidding me? I think that single cd ranks song for song alongside any collection of tunes by any soul artist. Perhaps you could quibble, about the order or ranking of greatness, but she deserves a place in the debate. Mediocre is NOT the word.

For the record, I am registered at MOJO as of December 9. It was probably 2002.

People do seem to be into soul, but they don't seem to have grown up with it. There is a general lack of interest in dance music on this board.

I can kind of see his point about the material, it's not all the best, but the playing and singing is incredible and even the material is as good as you are likely to get with any non-writing southern soul artist.
