Welcome to the THE NORTHERN LINE WARRINGTON DJ Sean Chapman Comments sectiom

This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

A big thanks to all that turned out on Saturday night. Numbers were noticeably down than normal, but when you consider the huge number of events being held on the same night within an hour’s drive it was inevitable. I do wish promoted would look what’s on before adding to what is already a busy calendar, but that’s never going to happen is it.

Chris kicked the night off for the first hour and treated us to some of the great tunes he rarely gets to play, what a collection this guy has.

Moz followed and mixed it up with a bit of RnB, Classic Northern and Motown, I followed in the same vein as Moz but threw a few 70’s into the mix to add to the variety.

Sean Chapman was our guest and he certainly didn’t let us down, we have been trying to get Sean for a while now and he certainly didn’t disappoint.

He started his spot with some big money northern classics like The Salvadores - Stick By Me Baby, Tomangoes – I Really Love You and Lou Pride – Im Com’un Home In The Morn’un to name just a few. He then served up some of the recent Biggies Joe Jama – My Life and the wonderful Parisians - Twinkle Little Star.

Sean then treated us to a few what he called Latin–Northern tracks like Bobby Valentin – Use It Before You Lose It. I must admit a few of the locals didn’t appreciate this but I thought it was nice to hear a guest DJ playing something different and not sticking to the “safe” tried and tested oldies.

Sean then gave use a few 70’s like James Fountain – Seven Day Lover and Gloria Scott – A Case of Too Much Love Making. He finished off with his female alternative version of Double Barrell.

The 3 of us then finished the night off playing as many requests as we could fit in.

Before we knew it Chris was lining up our “Ender” Ralph Graham – She Just Sits There.

All in all a really enjoyable night with a great spot from Sean and many thanks for making the long journey up from South Wales.

We are back on the Saturday the 26th November when Mr Rare soul John Manship will be our guest behind the decks we Hope to see you all there.

Many thanks John for taking care of the initial write up as I've been working away all week and haven't had the chance to get near the interweb thingy.

I have a full listing of Sean's spot and will post this later today once I've finished my 'homework'. I'll also do my best to list as few of the tunes I played in my warm up spot.

On a sad note, thanks to the 2 - 3 people to verbally abused our very good friend Moz because at some point in the night they had to (horror of horrors) sit through 4 - 5 records in a row that they didn't know. We've continually strived to make The Northern Line a quality across the board night. To my mind that means a blend of big, rare records, current in-demanders, classic oldies, 60's, 70's plus RnB, club classics and Tamla-Motown tunes. Granted, we play records that you won't often hear at soul nights either because of their rareity or because we believe in them, but we also play the tunes people do know and love (in fact 2/3 of the last hour and a half spot I shared with John was requests). There will always be records that people know and hopefully things that are new to someopf our patrons (but these will hopefully be records they like). At The Northern Line we've recognised that you can never please all the people all the time, but we have always done our level best to put quality at the very top of our agenda.

As a result of the abuse that Moz got he's now seriously considering whether the time, effort, blod sweat and tears is worth it and is (understandably in my opinion bearing in mind the childish, tantrum-like ear bashing he got from 2 -3 people) questioning his involvement in this event.

For those hundreds of people who've given so generously of their support, interest and positive comments in the last 2 years then we are both humbled and immensley grateful. For those 2 - 3 people who on Saturday night behaved like spolit children, then thank you for undermining Moz's belief, faith and committment. You should be, but I doubt are, suitably ashamed.

Will post playlists later once I've calmed down.

Chris

Many thanks Phil.

Your suggested comments will be borne in mind (though I hope that we never need to use them...hopefully there'll be no repeat).

In addition...how are you fixed for doing the door for us?

As between us John and I appear to have covered the write up all that remains is for me to provide Sean’s playlist and thank him once again for travelling all the way from Cardiff.

As you can see Sean graced the decks with quality sounds from start to finish. With the exception of a handful of Latin influenced tracks which were perhaps less well known (which appear to have been at the root of some of the childish comments aimed in Moz’s general direction), then the majority of the records should be reasonably familiar. Where the records were new to some people (and that includes me as around ½ dozen I’d never heard before) they were still, i.m.h.o., great records and more than a couple have ended up on my ‘wants’ list. All Sean’s records, of course and as you’d expect of The Northern Line, original vinyl and I for one was drooling behind the decks as for a few of these records it was the first time I’d seen the original real-deal version in the flesh.

I’m not 100% convinced these tracks are in the right order, but I think I’m reasonably accurate. Here goes...

Checkerboard Squares – Double Cookin’

The Salvadors – Stick By Me Baby

Lou Pride – I’m Comin’ Home In The Mornin’

Joe Jama –My Life (Added to my ‘wants’ list)

Rita & The Tiaras – Gone With The Wind

Parisians – Twinkle Little Star (Added to my ‘wants’ list)

Timmie Williams – Competition

Gene Toones – What More Do You Want

The Tomangoes – I Really Love You

Holly St James – That’s Not Love

Al Williams – I Am Nothing

Dewey Black – Takin’ Love Where I Find It (Added to my ‘wants’ list)

Billy Butler – Right Track

Del Larks – Job Opening

Eddie Parker – I’m Gone (I’d turned to jelly at this point and was foaming at the mouth...)

Jimmy Moore – Church Street Sally

Charles Sheffield – Voodoo Working

Isonics – Sugar

Bobby Valentin – Use It Before You Lose It

Manny Corchado – Pow Wow

Sandi Sheldon – You’re Gonna Make Me Love You

Mel Britt – She’ll Come Running Back

The Four Perfections – I’m Not Strong Enough

James Fountain – Seven Day Lover

Gloria Scott – A Case Of Too Much Love Makin’

The Hamilton Movement – She’s Gone

The Bamboos – Tighten Up

Sam Williams – Love Has Slipped Through My Fingers

Bobby Kline – Say Something Nice To Me

Timi Yuro – It’ll Never Be Over

Stephanie McKay – Take Me Over

I think that’s about it. If you were one of the 99.9% who were impressed with the quality of Sean’s set and like what we’re trying to do at The Northern Line then that’s fantastic and your support is appreciated. We hope to see you again on Saturday 26th November when our special guest is the one and only Mr John Manship.

If, on the other hand, you were one of the couple of idiots who gave Moz a hard time because you didn’t know a couple of the records that got played then thank you for your opinions...but please find an event more suited to your taste. I’m sure you won’t be stuck for an event locally or regionally that’s a little more, let’s just say...appropriate. If you are unsure then please feel free to ask myself or Biff as we’ll gladly tell you where to go...

Chris
