FOREMOST A black music collector. Originally from North London, now living on the Costa Blanca. Former radio presenter for BBC Essex where I presented "Jazz First" for five years.

I'm probably best known for my rare record business, ViRGO ViBES. During the 90s I would regularly be found stalling-out at London's Black Music record fairs, Russ Dewbury's Jazz Bop in Brighton and large international record conventions in London, Paris, Utrecht and Milan.

Rooted in jazz, my musical taste has broadened over the years and become somewhat eclectic, though I'm still a sucker for a good soul tune. As Berry Gordy Jr. said "It's what's in the groove that counts!"

    Fabulous AS, it really compliments Lalah's vocals, topped the original mix by far in my book. I never even gave this tune a second play until now.
