   Totton All-Dayer - May 24th, 2014

 

        I can think back to the soul nights at The Crown in Shirley and Alfie remarking with enthusiasm that he was planning  big All-Dayer. It was great news, for we could see that Mr. Linney was trying to take Southampton Soul Club to another level and give the area something that would attract a larger following from further afield down to the south coast. However, throughout the lead-up to the event, there was always an element of uncertainty within his passionate words as to whether or not he could successfully pull it off. Yet he did and here we are at All-Dayer No.6.

 

       This is now a permanent fixture in the calender amongst the other big events which Alfie organizes at this venue, the large Empire Hall with it's expansive wooden dance floor.

       Now Alfie knows that he can get the numbers through the door. Last year it topped 300. But being the careful and contemplative promoter that he is, means that he never becomes complacent or relaxes to rest on his past successes. Bringing together a different line-up of players each year, who have to have the music and ability to stimulate a large crowd is difficult enough. To then place them in the right sequence in order to service a range of tastes to keep that large floor going isn't easy. For D.J.s can sometimes be much like rock stars performing at a festival, who all want their time on stage as the sun is going down. It's a logistical headache that I wouldn't wish to handle.

I get the impression that he might share the work load around this time, with some players getting two spaced apart half-hour sets. Which isn't a bad idea. It keeps each D.J.'s particular slant on the music in shorter transitions and therefore proceedings would vary and not ever get stuck in a rut.

 

  Of the D.J. line-up, there's only Chilli who has a generalistic angle to his music, as he mainly plays to a scooterist crowd. I believe that there are elements of individual eccentricity through out the rest of the players and thus the possibility of experiencing elements of Alfie's 'Ghetto Soul' venture.

   I hope that this is the case and the envelope of soul fully exploits some of the lesser known excellence that doesn't always find it's way to the surface, because of the difficulty in breaking new music to an unsuspecting crowd. From a purely single-minded point of view, I hope we get plenty of uptempo beat music - For like many others, I wish to fully stretch my legs.

 

   I could talk about the players with a wide appeal, such as Woody and Ted Massey who are traveling down from The Midlands. But many of you well-informed soul people will know more so that these guys can pack a punch with some big expensive Oldies to sort after underplayed tunes. So, due to greater familiarity, I would like to stay closer to home and make mention of Simon Preston and Tim Smithers from the former Bournemouth Railway Club.

 

   Simon's tastes cover a wide scope, which has been enhanced through his association with Mace and Johnnie Beggs of The Bidds 'Rare-Soul' All-Nighter in Stoke-on-Trent. Therefore, you might expect anything from the latin Black Sugar Too Late to the underplayed Joe Tex You better believe it.

  He can not only surprise an audience with some obscure quality Oldies, but also with numerous superb cover-ups, some of which have been produced from overlooked master tapes and thus, you will only ever get to hear this very rare music from him or a couple of others within this circle who own the tapes. This is the Simon many of us appreciate, for you never quite know what he is going to try to introduce to a crowd. If it isn't working, then he'll resort to some of his 'Get out of Jailestablished favourites. I think most sensible D.J.s apply this approach.

 

   Talking about a sensible approach, I've heard from the maverick Tim Smithers himself that he will be playing a few Oldies because of their wider appeal. However, knowing the nature of the beast, there's no doubt in my mind that he'll be throwing down some rare hard edged tunes such as Bobby Williams - All the time, which I and a few others go for, but on a continual basis, within a set, can be too hard for a typical crowd to swallow. In Tim's mind, these tunes have to be played and so I hope he blends them in well to make them work. On the other hand, in my view Alfie, it wouldn't be a bad idea for someone like his good mucker Nik Mak to double-deck with Tim, to space out his delivery? Nik would bring a tempered balance to accompany Tim's raw tendencies.

    Anyway Tim, if you're reading this, I'll put my request in now - Teddy & The Fingerpoppers - Soul groove Part 1. It should go down a ton!

 

  I look forward to rubbing shoulders with transplanted Northerners and the many friendly gentile folk from all around The Home Counties and south coast. I know that there will be some charismatic characters whom I haven't seen in a while. So with all the intermingling, May 24th will be a real social event.

 

   Thanks again Alfie and to your good lady wife Ruth, who I know has been very supportive throughout this venture from it's inception. 

   I know that you in turn would like to thank everyone who has attended over the years for their continuing support in making this event what it is.

 

  I can't really say too much about proceedings in The Modern Room, where I believe many up and coming recent discoveries will be played. This room will attract a healthy contingent from the nearby event PortSoul. Someone such as Russ Vickers is probably best placed to comment.  

 

   One final word to Paul Bear (Bearsy), it's been good to follow (through Facebook) your progress and witness your recovery from heart surgery. A lot of people are looking forward to seeing your jovial irrepressible self again - afore and also, to re-affirm your good health, behind the decks.

 

  We're looking forward to the 24th of May,  Dave & Jan Mortimore

The line up for this years event is indeed a quality one. all the dj's have out standing record collection and know how to keep the floor busy, no doubt there will be a few surprises thrown into the mix as i now these guys always keep some first class uptempo dancers under lock & key until the big event,
