Prince ‘For Yo...

Spin Doctor’s All Vinyl Price ‘For You’ Tribute Mix 2016 has been a horrific year for loosing musical heroes. Last month I was rocked by the death of Phife from A Tribe Called Quest and last night’s news of Prince’s passing hit me nearly as hard. I’ve been a huge fan since being introduced by my older sisters in the early 80s (the copy of ‘Sign Of The Times’ used in this mix was my sisters till I stole it) and so I was inspired to do this all vinyl tribute mix of just some of the classics that the purple one blessed us with! Starting with the intro to Prince’s very first album and exploring some of his best love tracks this is an all party tribute to the Purple one. RIGHT CLICK TO DOWNLOAD THIS...

DJ Format & Mr ...

Ahead of spinning the first of what may well become an regular all 45’s party for The Doctor’s Orders @ The Book Club on 22nd March two of the UK’s top DJs and 45’s collectors DJ Format & Mr Thing answer Spin Doctor’s questions about their passion for those little disks your mum used to have!   How many 45’s to you think are presently in your collection? FORMAT – I’ve never counted my 45’s before but I’ve just had a look and I would estimate about 2,000. I know a lot of collectors like to have a lot of records to impress other people but I’m usually quite ruthless in getting rid of records I don’t ever listen to. I prefer to have a manageable amount of records I cherish & enjoy, rather than a lot of mediocre records cluttering up my house. THING – I reckon at a rough guess a couple of thousand, maybe more i’ve never really counted them to be honest or sorted them into Genres even … it’s a lot of boxes, but it covers Soul, Funk, Reggae, Dancehall Reggae, Hip Hop and House and most other stuff too.   What is it you like about 45’s over the good old 12″? FORM – . I started buying Hip Hop 45’s in the late ’80s because you could buy them really cheap in regular shops like Woolworths rather than specialist record shops but I think I got more obsessive about collecting them in the last 10 years because I’d already got most of the Hip Hop 12″s that I wanted so collecting 45’s brought back the excitement of finding my favourite Hip Hop records all over again. Technically speaking, 45’s are definitely harder to mix & scratch with...
