Welcome to the Olde Spa R-n-B Comments sectiom

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

The Adlib Lincoln will be playing some British RnB courtesy of Andrew and Eileen Vaisey who are superb DJ's and very commendable too.We here at the Spa have from the first promoted Brit RnB ;early Rolling Stones,Spencer Davis,Helen Shapiro,Georgie Fame to name just a few long may it continue.Its a sorry story that the scene ignores the artists who gave British audiences their first hearing of this great music.Without the Mod/Blues/RnB scene of the 50's and 60's there would be no "northern" scene period !

Thanks

Yeah the Birds had to change into 'The Birds Birds' after the arrival of the American version 'The Byrds' such a shame they never made it to stardom as of many other of the obscure British beat bands of the early 6T's.

See you at ad-lib in april, not seen you both in a while, hope to make it down to the Spa at some point, lovely to see the early british stuff get the recognition it deserves, like you say, without them, there would never be any Northern Soul
