Many thanks to the hardy souls who have participated, seems the appeal of the genres shown hasn't improved a lot in the intervening months.

You all know the drill by now, usual rules apply - don't vote for your own nomination and please check back to ensure you haven't clashed (as unlikely as that seems). As we have managed to get to 11 nominations (and suzysunshine was worried about Erasure) we'll use the Fave Artists scoring quota so it's 4-3-2-1. Please append your votes to the songs below and do so by Thursday evening at 10.00 pm. No late votes will be counted.

No playlist I'm afraid, link list as below:

Voting over and thank you to the 8 who turned out on such a cold and wet night...

Winner: What Does It Take To Win Your Love ~Junior Walker And The All Stars with 18 points nominated by Trvael Fan.
Runner Up - Show And Tell - Al Wilson with 11 points nominated by Val H
Joint Third - Heart On A String - Candi Staton and If You Ever Get Your Hands On Love - Gladys Knight & The Pips both scoring 10 points and nominated by Johnny Bee & KJS respectively.

Well done Jemma, always enjoy listening to that song - it's a big fave...and Val's nom by Al Wilson was a great reminder of a classic tune whilst the two in 3rd place, not so well known, but fine examples of female soul at its best. Impressive list all the way down imo, enough diversity to appeal to most - all boxes ticked so well done all!

Next one will be up and running in a few minutes....

Congrats Jemma - a great track that just makes you want to get your groove on (and thankfully there's a lot more room in the penthouse than on the naughty step). I enjoyed the variety of this selection and hope that the following noms will pick up in numbers. Thanks Al.

Liked it enough to download it, remember it from the early 80's. A kind of dirty hard-soul funk carrying on from the exploitation stuff of the 70's and bears comparison with the Millie Jackson, Denise Lasalle and Barbara Carr explicits that got progressively down and dirty. Added to the diversity of the list for sure, just a few more vibed better.
