Read an article on a post Bob Stanley on Guardian

"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, lovers of blues and soul music
and tourists, it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

ALVIN ROBINSON SHINE ON

CHARLY RECORDS  1988                        CRB 1181 




Born in New Orleans in 1937. His first successful release was on Tiger records USA,
 a subsidiary label owned by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller. They moved Alvin
 to Red Bird for his next release; 'Fever'/ 'Down Home Girl'. Down Home Girl was 
the 'b' side and played more often at UK and Belgium soul clubs, as Fever by 
Little Willie John would take precedence on a DJ's play list, due to the fact that 
these clubs (Wheel/Blue Note) preferred originals. That said, 
Alvin's version of Fever is extremely good.
He played on Dr John Gumbo album.
