Great to see you here! We go back to the days when I was in the Sunliners to all that music we worked on together at Tera Shirma and Motown. We had a great time creating history together!

Hey Russ. How are you doing? It's been a long time. We created a lot of music and had a lot of fun doing it. I'm back making music with Mike Theodore again. I'm still having a blast!

When you come to London, have you planned any leisure time activities in the city? Will you be playing anywhere or have studio commissions up your sleeve? Most importantly, are you bringing your guitar with you? Boy, am I nosey! If you need any pointers for the good ‘tourist attractions’, please feel free to consult your London chums who are at your disposal, right here on the forum. You may even buy one, get one free.

Hi Dennis! If you're in town on June 15th, I'd love to see you at the Clawson once again! A friend of mine ran into Kris Peterson, a terrific singer from the 60's, and I thought we could all get together again and schmooze!! I know you're planning on leaving for London soon, but I can't remember the exact date...let me know if you can make it! Also, I'd like to orchestrate some sort of fundraiser for the solefuldetroit.com website, and was thinking about renting a hall, and inviting all the musicians who played in Detroit back in the 60's to get together with their instruments and just PLAY! We could donate the proceeds to the site. Please let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks.

Hey Millie. I will be in London on the 15th. If you get together a fundraiser, I can sit in. I think you need to find a band to do a few sets first and then have people sit in with that band. If people just bring their axes and play, it may sound very disorganized for the people listening.

It was in the early seventies that I first realised that there was some (understatement?) White input to Black music.

This month I had the pleasure of meeting someone who contributed more than most, Mr Dennis Coffey.

Here he is at The Clawson, first Saturday in May. Also in the pic is Sax legend Goerge Katzakis of The Royaltones.

The Royaltones can be heard on many Volumes recordings. Listen to 'You Gotta Give Her Love'.

Dennis,
Thanks for the input. We'd have to put a band together since everyone's doing their own thing. Who should be in the band? We've got 15 sax players, one guitar player, 8 drummers, etc!! (lol) I welcome your ideas...send more! When exactly are you leaving for London?? Should we get together before then? Let me know.

That's a cool sunburst 335 Dennis. It matches my shirt on this sites home page as does my Les Paul.
Have a wonderful time in London. Wish I could come and groove witcha!! Hang closer to Charring Cross rd. and it's book stores especially Foyles.
Stay away from the shops around Greek st and Wardour st You may need some kleenex.Visit the music shops on Denmark st though..

Hi Dennis,
looks like you had a good time in London!
Really wished to see you performing live, maybe
someday I get the chance!

It's still kind of funny, when I'm driving in my car or hang around with some friend of mine and
having your music in my player! They snip their fingers and tap their feet and after a brief time, somebody will ask "who the h*** is that?"
I allways wait for that moment, grinning inside!


My Dad asked me, if you would mind passing him your e-mail adress, as he wished to get in contact with you!
If you would be so kind to send it to my account,
harvey@debitel.net I guess that would make him very happy!

Wish you a decent time,

Darin

I looove London and would gladly live there if it were at all feasable!!

Dennis, as I have previosly stated, stay away from any book signings on Greek Sreet or just about anywhere in Soho and please don't bend over to retrieve a pen. They may view your axe as a phallic symbol.
Foyles, on Charing Cross is not far from there but it is on book row in the "safety zone"
Put on a body condom and you will not be affected!!

Bobby - we certainly look forward to seeing you in London too. And as John has quite rightly mentioned his excitement at this and at seeing The Originals in Manchester next week, it is now my turn to express mine, about Edwin, Martha and Freda who will be gracing The London Palladium on the 2/6/2002.That, along with Dennis Coffey coming to these shores, what more can a boy ask for, I'm sure. I only wish The Originals were appearing down here, because I would love to see them as well.

hey dennis: Last week i typed a question about some of your music that i had and somehow has become missing. And that every record store i go to says your not available, Can u fill me in on where i might be able to locate and purchase. (most memorable is blue cover with guitar on front). Its been a few years so the name is not known. I need to know what album that was. Help Brimm.

bmbrimm, Dennis answered your question as follows on May 25. You can use the Search Forum function using your 'handle' but this was his answer anyway :-

Hi Bmbrimm. Yes, I am the same Dennis Coffey. I think the album you may be referring to is called Under the Moonlight. It has a dark blue cover and a Gibson Byrdland which resembles an acoustic. That CD was number four in the country in Radio and Records New Adult Comtempory Chart in 1990 in the US. The label is Orpheus and it was distributed by EMI. I think it is out of issue. Sometimes I see it in used record stores. One day all of the copies just seemed to disappear. I am working on some new releases but no news yet.

Hey Bobby. I'm sure I'll have a great time! I saw a Spinners greatest hits CD. I played on Shame Shame Shame. The label credits said Robert White may have played on it. I know I did and either Robert White or Eddie Willis were on it too. You were listed on other cuts so I guess we did work together ;<)

To dennis : I thank you for the info on my question. Under the moonlight has definitely rang a bell. The title name fits the sound perfectly,And when i locate this album i can assure you my neighbors will be listening to Mr coffey under the moonlight as well. If possible keep me posted on future releases. And a note to soulful DETROIT if it wasnt for this great site, I dont think i would have been able to locate the info that i needed. thanks again bmbrimm.

I was in Foyle's a couple of years ago.

It's some size of a place.

My favourite shop was across the road and down a side street.

I picked up Raynoma's book in there a few years ago.

One of those moments you never forget because I was so desperate to get a copy.

I love that book (and her!).

Did the Motown drummers use Phallic cymbals??
Did the guitarists only use "G " strings??
Did the bassists use "K Y " jelly to lubricate their strings??
Whose "ivories" did the piano players tickle??
And finally, did the horn players really blow for a living??
Just food for thought!!

Hi folks. I'm just a simple guy over here in London having a few pints in the local pub with my mates and enjoying the visit. Today I also went to Buckingham Palace and saw the changing of the guard. Tomorrow I will visit some radio stations. Cheers.

Dennis, is this your first time in England??
Do not forget to buy the AtoZ as it is the Bible of directions and street maps and underground and bus lines as well as attractions of interest.
Say hi to Lizzie for me and please invite her onto "Ye Olde Forum"
Please try some Bangers and Mashed and some Spotted Dick!!

Cheerio, Guv'ner

Listen here Eli

You told us you were from Philly...I am not so sure, you seem to know too much about us here!!

LOL

For the non-British..bangers and mash means sausages and mashed potatoes. Spotted Dick is a desert - suet pudding with dried fruit. My mum makes it in a saucepan of hot water wrapped in a tea towel. If I had thought of it, I could have asked her to make one and I could have brought some for Dennis to try. Hmmm, I wonder what Dennis might have said to an offer to try my spotted dick!!

John et al;

I have been to England many, many times over the years so much that upon arrival in America I would have the tendency to enter my car on the opposite side!! I stil would slag Yanks even in America. Go figure, huh???
I can almost visualize London's streets and directions with my eyes closed. Right now I am on the top floor of Foyles in the music department!!!
I can visualize Kew and the Zoo, the Kings Road and the Arabs on Edgeware!! The Reggae of Brixton and the record shop at the tube stop.
Now I am at the Camden Lock at Le Routier restaurant drawing on the chalkboards with semi vulgar characters!! Wait--- I am on Chalk Farm roads at the Camden Market and I have found copy of.... wait.. hold on ....it cannot be... its..its..a mint copy of Do I love You by Frank Wilson for 50p!!!!

Dennis - I hope you have your wellington boots, brolly and mac with. I think you are going to need them. Top tip - always carry a plectrum on the inside pocket just incase. If you are seen down Charring Cross Road heading for Soho and the police stop you because you look suspicious, you could quickly grab the plectrum and say ' I play the guitar and I am a tourist, can you take a photo of me?'

I look forward to meeting you.

Hey David. I did interviews on the BBC and two other radio stations and rode the train and the tube into London. Tomorrow I will do a book signing and maybe more interviews. Having a great time so far!

Dennis - it appears that you have been spotted in the local cafe for breakfast. The SoulfulDetroit secret agents are on the case and must advise you there is no hiding place south of Watford gap (ask Mike where that is). If you go further than that today, just end your sentences with 'my duck', especially in the Derby and Nottingham area. Also watch out for Robin Hood. I think he has recently purchased a new green suit. If I do not speak to you before tomorrow evening, have a good trip up north. I may bump into you down Denmark Street in the guitar shops Wednesday afternoon. I often go in and dream I can play the guitar and get asked all these questions by sales staff, because they must think I look the business. I think they check my fingernails when I walk in, discreetly.

Speaking of Robin Hood, lookout for the Men In Tights!! They are just about everywhere in Nottingham and some are "undercover", litterally.
