|The Three Degrees (2010 issue UK 11-track digitally remastered CD album -|
The Three Degrees' Philadelphia International Records debut made quite an
impact upon its release in 1974. Having been R&B hit makers for years, the groupwere no
strangers to the American Soul Chart, but the pairing of the group with Philadelphia's Gamble
& Huff took them to an iconic level of appreciation. The top 20 album spawned the now classic UK
No1 'When Will I See You Again', the top 20hit 'Year Of Decision' and their Philly debut single
'Dirty Ol' Man'. This 2010 edition comes expanded with 3 Bonus Recordings including 2
collaborations with MFSB: 'Love Is The Message' and 'TSOP [The Sound Of Philadelphia]',
the classic theme from 'Soul Train', plus Tom Moulton's 1977 Disco remix of 'Dirty Ol' Man').

Record Mirror was a British weekly Pop Music newspaper, founded by Isadore Green and featured, news articles, interviews, record charts, record reviews, concert reviews, letters from readers and photographs. The paper became respected by both mainstream pop music fans and serious record collectors. It was the most progressive of the four competing pop weeklies of its day, which included Melody Maker, New Musical Express, Record Mirror and Disc magazine.
Launched two years after the NME - with its first issue on 17 June 1954 - Record Mirror attained lower circulation than its high-profiled rival, but during the 1960s and early 1970s it did achieve a good circulation based on its reputation. The first ever UK album chart was published in Record Mirror in 1956, and during the 1980s it was the only consumer music paper to carry the UK singles and UK albums charts used by the BBC for Radio 1 and Top of the Pops.
The descendant publication of Record Mirror ceased being printed in April 1991. Below are editions of Record Mirror from 1957.

CARRY ON SPYING (1964)
Top secret Formula "X" is stolen from a War Department research establishment by an agent disguised as a milk roundsman. BOSH (British Operational Security) discovers that the agent is named Milchmann and that he is in the employ of the subversive organisation known as STENCH (Society for Total Extinction of Non-Conforming Humans), headed by the mysterious Dr. Crow. Unfortunately, the Chief of BOSH is short of agents, so Desmond Simkins, normally put out of harm's way as head of trainee spies, is sent to Vienna with his latest bunch of recruits-Harold Crump, Charlie Bind and Daphne Honeybutt. In Vienna they find Milchmann murdered and the formula gone; but the trail leads to Algiers and another STENCH agent, The Fat Man, from whom they re-cover the formula, then make their escape by train, hotly pursued by STENCH agents, now led by the beautiful Lila. Just before they are captured, they destroy the formula by eating it, after Daphne, who has a photographic memory, has committed it to memory. They are taken to the underground headquarters of STENCH where the sinister Dr. Crow is driven mad by Daphne's naturally brainless resistance to brainwashing. Thwarted in her attempts to secure the formula, Dr. Crow sends the quartet to their doom in the Automation Plant, but they are saved by the intervention of Lila, who reveals herself as a counter-agent belonging to SNOG (Society for the Neutralisation of Germs). Having gleefully tripped the auto-destruct switch, they make their escape by the emergency exit and emerge in the Chief's office at BOSH to discover that STENCH headquarters, due to blow up at any minute, are directly underneath....
Straight off the Carry On assembly line, this spoof on James Bondery looses a few random and very limp satirical shafts, but is for the most part content to stick to routine: in other words, a few bright gags are buried in a waste of coy camp, female impersonation and mildly smutty jokes. Bernard Cribbins manages to be quite funny, especially when disguised as an Oriental harridan in an Algiers bordello (with Renée Houston appearing briefly as the Madame), twanging desultorily at a stringed instrument and emitting a piercing parody of Eastern song in quarter-tone style; as a newcomer to the team, Barbara Windsor is decidedly an asset; and Dilys Laye is charming as Lila.
The Monthly Film Bulletin was published by the British Film Institute between 1934 and 1991. Initially aimed at distributors and exhibitors as well as filmgoers, it carried reviews and details of all UK film releases. In 1991, the Bulletin was absorbed by Sight and Sound magazine.
Jeff is hired simultaneously on two apparently separate cases, one investigating a diamond theft from the company Mortland, the other investigating a haunted house, Merston Manor, for an Estate Agent, Mr. Webster. Realising he can't work on both cases at once, Jeff compiles witness statements from workers at Mortland, while the ghost Marty is sent to investigate the Manor. Jeff in his spare time visits the manor and is scared away by ghostly phenomenon upstairs.
Jeff is summoned alone to a warehouse meeting, whereby he is threatened by the Mortland company Sales Director, Walter Previss, and offered £5000 if he writes the case off as an outside job. Rejecting both bribe and threat, Jeff goes ahead with his plan to expose Previss and is only halted when Previss reveals they've kidnapped Jeannie's sister to ensure his silence.
