Was always into Motown as a kid. Still remember Deep Purple / Led Zeppelin / Black Sabbath fans at school being incredulous about my musical tastes!

Led to a long love of soul, funk and R&B.
mine (a love n appreciation of soul n funk) has been constant for 50 years now, & no sign of it going anywhere soon :cool:

Has to be said, Oxford has a lot to answer for with music. All dayers in Botley, The New Inn on Cowley road Sunday evenings. Even had a good club scene for a while. My days behind the decks are long over but still enjoy the music.

The 1970s disco phase was brilliant for me! Also developed a love for George Clinton (Parliament etc).
George Clinton Detroit based (And IMO a maverick genius too).... early Parliament recording, co penned by George Clinton, cut at Golden World which was eventually (Studios and labels both) bought by Motown/ Berry Gordy jnr
