You'll have a ball. Remember that some of the more weathered faces started out in the same venue just as young and keen as you; a few decades earlier though.

With no other all nighters on this weekend, as Paul Phillips would have said in Echoes (and probably still does) "All Roads Lead To The 100 Club".

A very hot night in London, in more ways than one. And the air conditioning in the club didn't seem to be working. Everyone was saying how hot they felt, and many including myself went up to Oxford Street to take a break for some air.

 

I did wonder if the weather would affect the numbers attending but my concerns were needless. A good crowd in, and some new faces.

 

I arrived as usual at 11.15, dropped off my bag at the back of the stage and bought a much needed drink. Ady was doing the first set, but passed the baton on to Keith who, in the event, did three sets during the night. Keith is a most consistent DJ, always playing good records, many lesser known, ideal for the club.

 

James Pogson was on next for 45 minutes, playing an interesting set, most of which were new to me, but I did recognise the Sacred Four's Somebody's Watching You.

 

Next on was the other guest Ted Massey, a man with an enviable record collection. I'd had a chat with Ted at Lifeline, he'd asked if I had any requests so I asked for three of my favourite tunes. He played all three of them in this set, kept me happy, and I think many others. Among others he played were I Saw You There and the Profs' There's A Woman.

 

Ady was on again next, playing some of his Pied Piper tracks, more dance floor action.

 

Joel was on next, but at this point I was so hot I had to take a break and go upstairs for some fresh air, or as fresh as it could be in central London. When I went back down the dance floor was busy so he had done the business.

 

Then Keith again, thanks for playing Ask My Heart, a friend had asked for it. He included some Crossover records in this set including Clydene Jackson' I Need Your Love.

 

James took over from Keith and included in his set current “biggies” the Superbs' Wind In My Sail and Ishola Muhammad's Open Up Your Heart. He played some funk influenced tunes as well.

 

Ted then did his second set keeping things going with tunes like I'm Gone, Look At You, and Charles Johnson's I Made A Mistake, a record that to me sounds very much in the Bobby Bland mode. He ended his set with George Pep's The Feeling Is Real and George Lemon's Fascinating Girl.

 

Joel came on for his second set and included the instrumental version of Make My Love A Hurting Thing and Billy Byrd's Lost In A Crowd.

 

For the third time Keith took the stage, playing a nice set including Karmello Brooks' Tell Me Baby, Bob & Fred's I'm On My Way and Mel Britt's classic She'll Come Running Back.

 

This took us up to the last 30 minutes where Ady bring things to a conclusion. He played a mix of tempos, I Can Change keeping the pace up, slowing it a bit with Sweet Temptation and Don't Bring Me Down, slowing it more with Annabelle Fox's Lonely Girl and a version of I Just Can't Wait To See My Baby's Face, can't remember who it was by, not the usual ones though, and ended the nighter with Jimmy Radcliffe's Long After Tonight Is All Over, one of the greatest enders in my opinion, and a record that has a certain meaning for me.

 

Then the lights came on, and we began to pack up to the strains of That's What Mama Say and say farewell. I made a quick getaway as I needed to get to King's Cross to catch an early train, got me indoors at 7.30.

 

The only criticism of the night, and it's not the fault of Ady, was that the dance floor was not in a great state, in fact it was pretty sticky. It hadn't been polished, so some talc was dropped, but not in an obtrusive way.

 

Apart from that no worries at all. As usual nice to see so many friends there, Billy, Mark, Gary and Rolly, Paul, Yann and Kym, Trickster, Alan Edge, Liam, and many others. No doubt I'll see you at the next one, if not before.

 

Once again thanks to Ady and the DJs and the 100 Club staff. Now for a rest.

Well Geoff nails it again in his write up.

A truly superb night.

And I unashamedly copy this in from a FB post.

Well done Ady and all the DJ's.

Had a blast.

 

"There are nights out, and then there are those special nights out. The ones that for some unknown reason possess a different aura and ignite all the emotions inside your Soul. Think that all the people that were yesterday night at the no 100, will agree on this....we were lucky enough to live one of these special nights. Maybe the lack of the air conditioning made us all more vibrant and receptive, maybe it was like going back in time, that, I don't know, but I liked it. I like things that I am unable to explain :)"

A brilliant night in every way , Butch is always missed ,such is his pulling power as the undisputed No 1  Rare Soul spinner , but on this occasion every DJ pulled out the stops , mixed the styles right across the board, and were adventurous in their selections .Very very hot , but a fantastic atmosphere and a night that will be remembered for a long time ...........

Thanks to all who made it and many apologies for the lack of air conditioning.

 

In true 100 Club style it was taken out last week and should have been replaced with a brand new improved one but it got delayed and the hottest week of the year will have to live without one. I wasn't told about it until I got down there on Saturday. It will be fitted by August so if the summer lasts that long we'll be OK by then. The dance floor was poorly polished as well so I'll sort that out too.

 

However it is the people and music that are the most important ingredients for a great night and the DJs and your fine selves provided the best of them. Ted's first set was stunning, I even danced early doors, Joel gets better on each outing, he's a good learner. Keith was ideal with his groovy tunes which seemed to suit the hot conditions perfectly and James did a couple of great sets of music which was in the main new to me, but sounded assured and pleased the crowd no end. Big thanks for the support and attitude. Ady
