R.I.P John Anderson – Soul Bowl

Very saddened to learn of the passing of legendary Rare Soul dealer John Anderson (of Soul Bowl, Grapevine and Soul Junction). John was one of the first Soul dealers in the UK and helped me when I was getting started selling records in the early 70’s and has helped most Soul collectors over the years, a true gentleman as well.

Malcolm is having another of his do’s in Penge this weekend details here.

have a great weekend
