Evening everyone,

Well we're the day before 2015 longest day, can you believe it that on the following day the hours of daylight start to decrease? So what better way to celebrate this date than a night of quality Northern Soul, Motown and perhaps an hint or two of classy Rhythm'n'Blues music than here at "The Corner Pocket" unless of course you want to celebrate national flag day in Argentina

This month guest DJ is the well acclaimed Mr Mark Taylor and if his reputation is anything to go by once more your in for a great night, so see you all there unless of course you're celebrating national flag day in Argentina or perhaps even the birthday of the legend that is Alan Longmuir the bass player with the 70's popsters The Bay City Rollers.

Evening Woody and everyone,

Yeah as mention before The Epitome Of Sound disc "Where Were You" has become a firm favourite here at The Corner Pocket and really is a great tune in it's own right and to think it was on original release simply a "B" side.

One thing to look out for if you are in the market for buying a copy, there are some pretty good looking bootleg copies out there that might take one or two people unaware (the latest copies say licensed to Soulfulrecords.com on the bottom of the label) and easy to spot but there is both a red font issue and a black font DJ copy that are not so easy to tell apart from the original..... but if you look very carefully you can just see three very small stamping numbers just coming through the label on both sides, thanks to Tony aka Ado for that information and the deadwax also has the numbers 3051 in it. There is also a green copy that's a boot as well.

But here one copy that there's no danger in telling is a 100% fake and credited to Moses Smith instead of The Epitome Of Sound and if you think things can't get any worse the track has been layed down at the wrong speed (too fast) or perhaps has even being speeded up the running time is 2:47 on this and not 2:53 as it should be.

The very dodgy bootleg copy of "You Don't Love Me"

PS sorry can't find an audio file of this

Well it's a very good evening to everyone.

And already were at the halfway stage in the year and if today's weather has been anything to go by those long hot days of summer still seem a long way off....looks like summer Will be on a Wednesday this year and run from 7:30am till 9:15pm.

Well once more I'm without laptop internet connection so the smartphone is being used as a back up (so please excuse any misspellings or gramatic errors my chubby little fingers and phone keypads don't mix that Well)

All the team are really looking forward to another great night and we feel now that The Corner Pocket is getting it's own musical identity and that is based very much on a dance driven format and of course "the if we have it we'll play it philosophy" this month is no exception and dare I say it that we would never dismiss a requested time on the grounds of, overplayed, too commercial or the often used term " Wigan Pop" so if you fancy hearing some of these great old standards as well as current plays and soon to be big spins we're sure that The Corner Pocket will fit the bill.

This month's special guest DJ is the well respected soul spinner Mr Mark Taylor who like us all here plays to the floor and is a worthy addition to the events rosta, so as always remember to bring ya dancing shoes you're going to need them!

Back a little later as soon as the laptop permits.

Russ

Well done Miss T,

Great video that captures the spirit of The Corner Pocket but sadly if the camera adds 10lbs the moving picture must add 10lbs X E=mc2 or I need to shed a few pounds!

Well here in The Steel City it looks as though summer has finally arrived (officially it's the 21st June) but yesterday I decied to cut the garden hedge minus shirt or sun screen and I'm now sporting a rather fetching pink hue or as the colour is now refered to as Milk Shake so after only one day I've done the typical British tradition at of the first sign of a sunny day and it's shirt of and second degree burns.... ah how each year I swear I'll never do that again, a little bit like I'll never touch a Jager Bomb again!

So apart from the fact that the warm weather means you can't sleep it's really does make a very pleasent change.

Well even at this early stage feed back for this month event is very positive and all the team are looking forward to yet another great night of REAL across the board Northern Soul and Motown and at the risk of repeating myself we are truly a request friendly event and if you want a special record played that you haven't heard in a long long time this is the night for you, from old school favourites to current in demand spins and even up and coming sounds we're sure that your musical taste buds will be fully satisfied....

So remember to put the date in your diary, and don't forget to bring your dancing shoes.... you're going to need then.

Russ

Well first chance i've had to post for a while on the computer and it's so much easier that the phone....fat chubby fingers and small keypads dont mix.

 

Since last time both my garden hedge and sunburnt back look a lot better you might like to know (really you don't but i sharing the experience with you all anyhow)

 

                                           Sunburned_tailgater_zpspwrsz8rh.jpg

 

So not that long now for this months event, not sre waht the other fellas will be spinning but i'll be playing my usual blend of old school standards, with a helping of Pop Corn and a dash of Motown and i can say that any requested record i've been asked for is now in either the red or orange box so with any luck all musical tastes will be catered for (please excuse my lack of Delta Blues) bur i'm sure Woody in his vast collection will have one or two cuts from said musical genre and Tony aka Ado will have most certainly.

 

So we're well on track for the 20th and if early interest gets generated to attendees it will be standing room only at this event.....if you haven't been this event is a real must"

Hi everyone,

Just getting to grips with the new Soul Source site up date and just to mention it won't be much longer now (infact we're well into the countdown stage of things at this very moment)

So as we always say for the very best in Across The Board Northern Soul and Motown you don't need to look any further than here at The Corner Pocket, a great venue plus a nice talc friendly dance floor and very cheap bar prices, a top night guaranteed!

Be nice to see you back Derek, i won't say "bronzed and beautiful" but i'll say "safe and sound" so moving swiftly on i think the weather men are tipping a fine weekend, but as you all know here at The Corner Pocket no matter what the weather you're sure to get some of the coolest tunes and the hottest sounds around.

 

Here's.... Flame N' King "Oh Happy Day" so how this for a spot of 70's summer soul!

Hello again Everybody,

Here it is Folks Our Lookback Video from 2015 so far & what a great year we've had. The video's accompanied by a crackin' sound track, Dobie Gray's classic oldie "Out On The Floor", current in demander from Donald Lee Richardson "You Got In The Palm Of Your Hand" & massive Niter sound Sherri Taylor's "He's The One Who Rings My Bell". To hear all these & loads more top sounds all on lovely original vinyl come down & check us out "This Coming Saturday" down here on Bank Street, Mexborough S649QD.

Evening Woody,

Excuse the somewhat out of sinc postings (still not 100% in harmony with the sites re-working) not too long now till Saturday so i'll soon be asking Tony for parking arrangements and trying to fit everything i can into the record boxes (i refuse to carry anymore stock with me and before anyone says you only need to take a 50 disc box with you to do an hour set can i just stress that i [and all the other team members] always try and play all requests asked for and if you only carry 50 discs what happens if the DJ before you plays half of you set in their hour?....so the boxes stay) rant over!

Just watched the new Miss T video and have to say once more a top job and one or two picture really brought a smile to my face and i'm glad to say that i'm wearing different clothes in the picture selection very vain i can hear you saying but i do have my standards don't cha know!

Sir Percy Blakeney realises at the last minute he might be a tad over dressed for The Corner Pocket, "Oh why didn't i wear the Spencers?"

Hello Everybody,
it's me again, can't tell you how much Me & Miss T are looking forward to this Saturday the 20th, gonna be "great". Looking forward to seeing "Mark", our paths have'nt crossed for ages now (both busy out promoting, DJ ect.....), so looking forward to hearing his spot, top Guy behind the decks who's built up an awesome collection over the last few years.
Marks like us totaly A.T.B so I'm sure they'll be a few surprises in the "Old Magic Box" as well as the Club Classics, Seventies winners & Current spins.
Don't forget, we kick off at 8:00pm (Very Cheap Bar while 12:30am), Room while 1:00am, as Russ says "Bring Your Dancing Shoes".......

If you fancy a quiet drink with friends on Saturday night then DO NOT come to "The Pocket"!
If however you fancy dancing until your feet ache amongst the company of a lively, friendly crowd in a brilliant " A T B Northern Soul Venue" and leaving with your ears still ringing at the banging tunes on offer, then "The Pocket" here in Mexborough  is the place to be.
Resident DJ's with Special Guest "Mark Taylor" will be working hard with the "soul" purpose being to give you a brilliant evening of top Northern..... & once again as Russ says.......

Testing, Testing,

In answer to Russ, re parking, Yes,

Will be going along shortly to help setup, to those of you that have never been before, the room is a lot darker than it appears in the videos and pictures, nice dark downstairs with a great atmosphere, if we ever get a Summer this year and the place gets too warm it is also air conditioned to cool down the frantic dancers.    :)

Thanks Tony....

.you've beat me to it and it's much appreciated, as always I'll be on the last push no doubt but at this point in the proceedings I still time to make sure that I remember to bring anything requested from last time (Woody's box will be on standby once again)

So the clocks ticking see you all a little later.

If your're still a liitle undecided about where to go this evening and you think you've left things to the last minute.....Don't worry about being a little late we're there till 1:00pm and at only £3.00 on the door plus great bar prices we're sure you'll make the right choice.

And for any newcomers to The Corner Pocket we have a 100% dance floor driven music policy "if we've got it, we'll play it!" from forgotten gems to current dance floor favourites you'll hear them all at "The Pocket"

A massive  thank-you_zps5wwoils2.jpg  to everyone that came to Saturdays event at The Corner Pocket,

I'm sure i speak on behalf of myself and all the team here that we had a great night, a slow burner to start with number wise to very decent attendees a little later on in the evening, but we're sure that not just ourselves but all who came fully enjoyed the evening.

Special mentions to my Co-DJ's on the night for doing sterling work in both their spots, Woody played a final set of two halves from R&B based dancers to a full about face and into classic old school Northern Soul plays (the one so sadly you just don't hear enough of today...and mores the pity) great job DW and he even managed to put in some CCS Top Ten Plays in his final set for good measure!

Derek made it look all to easy as he seemlessly blended Motown with the best of British Soul and even managed to give an outing to the odd alternertive musical take on a classic tune, a well polished set that would be the envy of many a soul spinner and Derek even somehow just managed to squeeze a request or two in there as well and all without breaking sweat., impressive I'll say!

And of course a special mention to the nights guest DJ Mark Taylor who not only is a top bloke but a great DJ as well so full of enthusiasm it's infectious and simply you can't fail to be pulled into the sheer love he has for the scene, Mark an oustanding set that truly set the dance floor on fire and the nearest i could liken it to would be Hurricane Katrina on speed never once did the floor empty the plumes of talc must still be settling even now and in your own words Mark "HAPPY DAYS!" and it certainly was.

Big thanks to Miss T and Jackie on the door as team "meeters and greeters" as always ladies a great job making sure that the first point of contact is fully staffed all night so once more a very BIG thank you for a job well done!

Sorry to hear that top sound man & roadie Tony "A" wasn't feeling to great on Saturday, so from us all Tony get well soon!

And of course the final mention goes to each and everyone of you who gives their valuable support to this event (and danced their feet off) we thank you for your commitment to making this once more a stunning night and look forward to seeing you all again in August as we're having to take a break next month due to a previous function booking at the venue so until then from us all at "The Pocket" enjoy the break and we'll see you all the next one,

So till then go steady,

Russ
