  1. This venue does what it says on the tin great lads,if you've never been they will make you welcome.
  2. Is John selling these for Chris Marriott I wonder,I know he had copies of these tunes.
  3. Sad news Rip Steve,deepest Sympathy to all the family,used to see him regularly at Kingsway forest town.
  4. Mart B

  5. Several Northern tunes through out the programme.Any info ?
  6. Great tune some folk still got their blinkers on.
  7. Just google B&B or hotels close to the venue,.normally get a decent choice.
  8. In the Eighties Northern Soul was classed has Rare Soul because the folk on the scene then had their bellyfull of overplayed oldies.Present day most folk I know who was into the Eighties rare soul scene,guess what you don't see them present day.I wonder why.........Rare Soul doesn't mean obscure either.
  9. Toatly agree kev,and we was hearing good underplayed tunes has the Norm.Now we are back to accommodating the masses with overplayed Motown & Disco Demand oldies,it's not for me.
  10. Just like government past and present the public see the obvious,but us public doesn't see the reality.
  11. Look on events Ian P there's loads,most stipulate if they have a record bar.if not take a box anyway.
  12. Or maybe apply for a lottery grant to rebuild the Casino,has so many contributed to the Pharmaceutical industry.
  13. Sad to hear that KH is closing well done to Carl for keeping the Northern Soul flag flying high in Mansfield,a great town with Soul traditions.There's no doubt some promoter will be at The KH like a shot to carry on the format.Who ever it maybe,I know the charity trust value their Northern nights has special.
  14. Great guy Jimmy,always kept his cards close,rarely expressed himself over tunes.lve known Jim since the 70ts if I remember Jimmy rarely attended soul night's if any in the 70ts,met up with him again late nineties at a local colliery.I at the time obtained a few Mp3 s with over 1000 + tracks on,Millionaires only groovesville stuff etc.Jimmy also had the same 20 quid.Briefly met Jimmy in a local Boozer soon after at the Anvil Mansfield Woodhouse with his cowboy boots & Stetson on.& believe it or not he didn't look like a Div.To this day I think he's still on the Fairground.
  15. In my experience over the years you would travel to hear tunes that certain djs would play.Now anyone can take a bunch of played out oldies & fill any dance floor.Surely the scene wasn't based on this ?or maybe it suits the masses.
