Hi John

So long as its not Modern or Ballads then it should be okay with my missus and me. My only request is that Phil leaves Ruby Andrews (Just loving you) and anything released after 1976 at home. :yes:

Hi Stu

Phils collection will blow you away he plays all the  top notch 60s on original vinyl. If you think Chris and Moz have  good collections wait til you hear Phil's he wont disappoint you.

He was on with me at Parr Hall last year and wowed everyone with his playlist.

Phil was the main man behind the Sheridans allnighters a few years back, I think he actually owned the venue. He was also the man behind the release of Glora Jones version of Gone with the wind. So he knows what its all about.

Don't worry about that Stu. 1960's uptempo rare northern soul  music of the dancing variety all the way

No I didn't own it, but DJ'd at most of the nighters and ran a few nights there myself. Great venue

Hi Folks,

Fear not Stu!  Phil will rock your socks off!  I had the pleasure of listening to Phil's Parr Hall set and he blew me (and the assembled throng) away.

Top notch as John says, all originals with many being just a dream to be able to own (for a mere mortal like me).  Ok, my collection is alright(ish), but Phil's is simply awesome.

Make sure your dancing shoes are laced tightly, get ready with the sticking plasters for the blisters you're about to have and "hold on...Phil's comin".

See you there.

Fantastic night again last night at the Alford, A bumper turn out once again with a full dance floor right up to the end at 01:15. Massive thanks to all the DJs especially Phil Dick who made the long journey over from Yorkshire and didn't disappoint with a great set. Thanks to Jacko for seamlessly stepping in for Moz who was away for this one, again a great spot from one of the most reliable DJs on the circuit. Ben did us proud getting the night off to a good start playing some really nice tunes. Chris and myself filling in the gaps. Loads of new faces and all seemed to enjoy it so here is to next months event when Yocky makes the trip over from Yorkshire for what is bound to be another great night. Hopefully you will be able to join us again.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I am still pinching myself...what a great, great night.

Thank you to everyone that supported the event.  With a good 80% of you through the doors before 9.30pm it was nice to see the dancers on the floor and the atmosphere building from the outset.  We are only too aware that without you there simply is no Northern Line and given the number of venues available to you we are really chuffed that you chose to come over to Warrington.  I think I've only ever seen the venue even more well attended on one or two occasions and that gave our DJ's Jacko and Phil Dick the best chance to give you a good work-out.

The evening started with Ben Moses' and young Ben is really getting an ear for this Northern Soul malarkey...a blinding set, and we're getting more and more people in 'early-doors' just to hear what Ben's been buying since the last event.  Ben really has made this early spot his own and we're pleased to have him on-board.  I suspect you'll be hearing big things about Ben in the future...so when you're famous Ben, don't forget your buddies at The Northern Line!

John and I double-decked for an hour of mainly classics (with a few left of centre tunes tried out for good measure before out guests took over). I had the unenviable task of following Mike 'Jacko' Jackson and Phil Dick.  Jacko has an impressive British collection along with more than enough classic and sought after US releases and he put both to great use keeping the floor busy from 9.30 - 10.30 (in the process b*ggering up my playlist for later on :g:).  Joking aside, Jacko's reputation for delivering a great set is well renowned, yet again he delivered - thanks Buddy.  Jacko stood in, at relatively short notice, for Moz and really did a cracking job.

The came Phil Dick!  If I thought I was in trouble following Jacko then after Phil had worked his magic I was shell-shocked and wondering what the heck to play.  I have never, ever seen a collection like Phil's...massive tune after massive tune, most being ultra rare and all being of the highest quality and dance-floor filling properties.  :thumbsup: The Salvadors, The Tomangoes and The Professionals were amongst the plays as was Ray Agee and on of my personal all time favorites The Hi-Tones 'You Don't Even Know My  Name'.  I saw the records he didn't have time to play...bloomin' heck!!!!!

Then it was me...big gulp...Phil had driven a coach and horses through my play box.  Did I panic...too right I did :ohmy:, but I managed not to make too much of a pigs ear of things and maintained the dance-floor momentum for my 1/2 hour with a few dedications and requests that saw me hand over the reigns to Biff for the last hour.  Yet again Biff delivered a brilliant set, month after month he manages to deliver fresh tunes or reactivate things that you might not have heard for  a while that fill the floor and capture the mood. :thumbup:  I think Biff could have played until well past 2am if the staff hadn't got to go home...as the dancers didn't seem to want to leave!

A great night, thanks to everyone involved and we hope to see you all again on Saturday 22nd August (the weekend before the August Bank Holiday).
