100 Club - June 2001 Review


Yet another great nite in London, 100 club niter was the place, regular crew were on (apart

from Shifty) and with guests being Dave Rimmer and Russ Vickers, just knew it was going to

be a varied nite of soul. Yet again my ears told me that your man Butch is the master, with a

cracking second set proving it. Too many highlights to mention though was bowled over with

one 45 by Andy Campbell, annouced as deep soul with a beat, missed title but it is quality.

Mick Smith pushed out some great sounds, and enjoyed his quality crossover phase. Adey was

up to speed, with stuff like nancy wilcox, diplomats and all.

Guest wise, the return of Russ Vicker had him showing how to blend 60/70s, with a classy

selection of 60s rarities, and some 70s killers. They didnt always crank up the dancefloor

but gotta say my ears had a feast, quality soul.

Dave Rimmer, you always know what your getting with Dave and thats enjoyment, his spots were

spot on. Played a lot of requests, and the way his sets just flow from hard r+b to maniac

uptempo to smooth midtempo is as it should be. Crowd wise, well not a packer and not a

frantic up for it edge, which to tell truth was thankfull for due to the heat, just a

quality nite at a quality event. And best of all my ears had a quality rare soul feast. No

one does it better
