Campbell Ngata and Kimberlee Fuller "Top 5 Lists"
Excerpts from issue #1 of the Soultearoa Shakedown fanzine:
Top 5: 45s On High Rotate
1. The Futures - Stay With Me (Gamble, '72)
2. Avis - Baby, This Love I Have (Feline, '87)
3. Dolly Way and Space Ship Earth - Don't Stop (Color World, '76?)
4. The Younghearts - Do You Have The Time (20th Century, '73)
5. One Way - Shine On Me (MCA, '83)
Campbell has excellent records and a deep knowledge and if he didn't live way the hell down in Mt Maunganui he would be lighting up the Auckland scene. Akkalakka's loss is the Bay's gain, as Campbell can be found fortnightly on Saturdays holed up at Astrolabe Bar at Mt Maunganui spinning a killer selection of everything tasty.
Top 5: Filthy Records I Just Cleaned That Are Now In Near Mint Or VG++ Condition
1. Mike and The Censations - You're Living A Lie (Revue)
2. Harrison Brothers - Run For Your Life (Bobalu)
3. Fairchange - Let Me Be Good To You (Valley)
4. The Chosen Few - I Can't Take No Chances (Maple)
5. The Hallelujah Chorus - I've Got To Find A Way (Nickel)
Kimberlee Fuller aka Miss Shingaling lives in Richmond, VA, and splits her time between vintage arts and crafts collecting and DJing soul 45s. She was previously part of Jazzman Records in the UK before returning to the US. You should check her vintage arts and crafts handiwork.
