Question

What where the best 3 sounds recorded and played by white artists up to 73? that cuts out a lot of the pop crap played at Wigan, I know you could fill this with Spencer Davis Group but....

My view

Rufus Lumley I'm Standing

Wayne Fontana Something Keeps Calling Me Back

Charlie Rich Love is After Me

Still a great white artist record never the less.

Chris Clark - I Want To Go Back There Again

Always played towards the end of the night at my local soul club and still an all time fave of mine regardless of colour.

Frankie Valli - You're Ready Now

Caused a tremendous buzz when first played at above nights.Prior to that Opus 17 was the popular spin by his group the Four Seasons.

Dusty Springfield - What's It Gonna Be

Heard of Dusty from earlier pop success and have always loved this dancer as well as most of her other stuff.

It surfaced in 1972 .

I would like to say it was first played at The Torch , but I have a feeling in my water , that The Cats may have been the first venue it was aired .

Spencer Davis were a rhythm n blues band and that to me = soul

Don't know if they could be Put into that confusing bracket of " northern soul"?

But they were ( I'm almost sure!!) the opening live acts at both brazenose and whitworth street twisted wheel sites

At all allnighters and soul venues in the seventies that I went to gimme some lovin keep on running trampoline ect were. Big floor fillers !

Ok steveie winwood went on to more progressive rock ??? Stuff

but the early stuff is soul to me! Blue eyed soul ????

Malc

I discussed the subject of the first play / plays of Paul Anka last night at Paul D's birthday evening .

It appears my water was right , as concensus favours Pep at The Cats .

Another pre - 1973 play , was by these gentlemen ...... The Marketts " Bella Delana "

Late '73 or early '74 , hence my not including it with the mention of " B D " .

Stirrin up Some Soul was played at Wigan late 73, remember (god knows how)being one of he first in one night with Gray, anyway as it was empty and it was one of the first records played, the sound virtually pinned us against the wall, and no it wasn't the DS in disguise!

No, with thought, the sound that pinned us against the wall was Sandy Nelson -Sock it to em JB, but the Marketts was next.

When was the Vogues - That's the Tune first aired?

Stirin´up some soul was played before Wigan opened ,

Possibly the Torch, i remember Froggy Taylor bringing it to the Wax Machine and raving over new sound/discovery (mint issue from Picton St) and luckily the tape deck was fitted up to the record deck :yes: so emidiscs soon followed!!would have thought this was Torch times but not 100% sure.

My white things.

Frankie Valli-Youre gonna hurt yourself....................have not heard this played for at least 35 years!!

Rufus Lumley-I´m Standing in my all time top ten

Barbara Mills-queen of fools as above..........(but was it ´73?)

Don´t know when the Vogues was first played but i would have thought Torch or just after

I actually sold The Vogues and Night Owl (must have been ´73) for twelve pounds to a collector called Martin Barnfather anyone remember him?

John Schroeder definately yes, though the picture above is on a re issue I believe,

talking of Pye and instrumentals,

who nicked Leon Young Strings - Glad All Over instrumental from the BBC library on PYE demo, which was definately played.(Billy Butler from Liverpool?) or was it Alan Day?

This thread is becomming educational!
