"It is with great sadness that I share the news that my friend and History of Soul’s co-founder Stewart Tippett passed away on March 7th 2017. He will leave a big void in many people’s lives but he will be remembered always for his positivity, determination, kindness and compassion. Here at History Of Soul his huge love of and enthusiasm for Black Music, consummate knowledge of its history, outstanding talent for track curation and liner notes will always be celebrated. Above all he will forever be the dearest of friends and collaborators. Stewart's family motto was to "Keep On Keeping On” and we honour that at this difficult time. In this link, Stewart talks of when he first fell in love with Soul music, our friendship....and is forced to pick his all time 10 favourite albums (which he found a challenge to say the least..so he added 2 bonus 45s!)":
