    Actually, talking of music I'm waiting for this to arrive. It's for my Motown, Soul and R&B jukebox.

    I like to be organised, I've already printed off the titlecard.

    I rarely buy 45s now, I've more than enough, but I like this group as their music is very "retro." The bass will sound very good.



    This is the "B" side, (for those who know what I mean)

    I have never heard of this group or their music. I sounds pretty good, I must say. But a whole juke box for just soul music--that's impressive.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I call it our MoTown jukebox, although strickly speaking they aren't all, but they are of that genre.

    My other jukebox has 50/60/70/80s pop. Doo-Wop and Jazz standards.

    Then I have these in our front room, two jukebox wall boxes from the seventies, adapted to play mp3s in i-Tunes playlists through my vintage hi-fi..
    With these you don't have to stick to 45rpm recordings, you can have music from any decade, but I categorise the playlists as, Motown or similar, Pop from any era and jazz, on the three pages of each wallbox.
    The advantage is that although you can only chose from a total of 160 tracks (the number available at one time on 80, 45rpm records for which each box was designed), you don't have to have any "B sides."

    Y'know Riley--I can really appreciate your collections of songs and players. It is monumental and must give you so much pleasure. Music is important to me as well and of course my compilations are on a much smaller scale--for in the auto and when we do housecleaning. However when my Bride reads the e-book, I chuck the headset on and run through my playlists. Listening to music makes me feel the same way that I feel when working in the garden...or should I say, while i am in the garden, for I do not always work. ;)...One can not live by work alone, he must also have pauses.
    BTW--I recognise many of the songs and artists that you have shown just above. Lots of nice, old tunes. I really do like many of those.

    Thanks again for the kind words.

    One of the reasons why We don't have either of the jukeboxes in our small semi as my wife wouldn't want them in our lounge, despite the fact it's twice the size of our front room.

    To get one in the front room, this would have to go. I've had it two years and it's my sixth electric piano, although they call them "workstations" now.

    That is some kit, Riley. I can imagine that you could spend hours and hours on that "workstation". Your Bride would probably take exception to that however.
