CSC Dome Fri 27 Jun 01 Afterwords

 

Well my plans to get there early went straight out of the window due to a 2 hour jam

, on the M bloody 6, so missed Stuart Tyler doing the “opportunity knocks” opening spot, but heard it went down well. Turned up at about 1030 with still a sizeable queue outside, thru the doors and into the cauldron, it was hot!

Well my plans to get there early went straight out of the window due to a 2 hour jam

, on the M bloody 6, so missed Stuart Tyler doing the “opportunity knocks” opening spot, but heard it went down well. Turned up at about 1030 with still a sizeable queue outside, thru the doors and into the cauldron, it was hot!

Sounds wise, spent most of first half just catching up with people, so not many details from the first lot of sets, though dancefloor was busy and stuff like Downtown Crowd and Barbara Redd from Alan H were doing their work and building the temperature up even higher. As always the CSC DJ rotation policy was in effect, with the regs doing 2 spots each with a different order than last one and guest doing the one long one. Ian Cunliffe from the North

West was the guest DJ arriving with a CV of being one of the top respected DJs up there, and he quickly put his credentials on the decks with a cracking set which included tracks such as:

Mean Mis- Treator - Joyce Taylor – Wally, Richard Anthony -Keep On Livin On

–Virtue Tommy Turner-Lazy plus I Have No Choice, Go For Yourself, I Have Faith in you, Hush Don’t Cry,  (Don’t forget you can hear 2 great sessions from Ian C

featuring some of the tracks, in soul sessions page )

Carl F was up next and some of his delights included:  Springers – Nothings Too

Good For My Baby, Esther Grant-Lets Make The Most Out Of Love-Wilstone, Vickie

Baines - Country Girl – Parkway, Martha Starr-Sweet Temptation-Chara

Eddie Billups – Ask My Heart –Peachtree

Onto David Flynn- he threw our way gems such as

I Need A Man -Precious Three Ref-O-Ree

Somethings Bad – Nomads Mo-Groove

My Proposal - Soul Inc - Coconut Groove

Oxford Nights - Im Such A Lonely One –Delphi

Sidney Barnes- Youll Always Be In Style- Red Bird

This Ones For You My Love- Benny Spellman –Alon

Baby Yes I Do – Temptones – Unissued Version

Rodd Keith & Raindrops - And The Lord Said – Preview

Sidney Barnes- Safety Zone – Jobette Acetate

(Check video clip of Benny Spellmans effect on dancefloor and Sidney Barnes live at a

earlier dome in the soul sounds section in topics.)

 

Irish Greg – up next with the end spot, Carl F had to leave early and he dished out

quality rare soul with the likes of

Did My Baby Call – Steve Mancha – Wheelsville

Anita Anderson - Secretly - Contact

Tomangoes - I Really Love You –Washpan

Judy Freeman – Hold On Test Lp Version -Rca

Jackie Wilson – Because Of You - Brunswick

John And Weirdness- Can’t Get Over These Memories –Tie

Virginia Blakely -Let Nobody Love You

Cliff Nobles – My Love Is Getting Stronger – Atlantic

Jimmy Raye – Philly Dog Around The World – Kkc

Jesse Davis- Gonna Hang On In There Girl- Era

Moses Smith– Girl Across The Street – Dionn

Tangeers - Let Your Heart And Soul Be Free - Okeh

Four Tops – Lonely Lover - Unissued

Jimmy Ricks –Oh What A Feeling – Festival (Unofficial Dome Ender)

And As A Encore - Trends – Thanks For A Little Lovin - Abc

ok that was just a brief selection from the latter sets, hopefully will get fuller ones in

later,

Crowd wise, well as said it was a packer, seems like every one turned up for this one,

Loads of the regular suspects all turning up, too many to list, but nearly everyone was

there, plus loads from all over the UK, NW, SW, SE, Scotland, Wales, as said all over. Quick name check for some who put the miles in were Pete Coulson , plus wife and gang from the NW, and as always Julie G made the trip down from there, bringing Kev and Steve with her , plus good to see a few recognisable “new” faces there for first time Russ Vickers and Pete Smith.

Record bar had usual lot in attendance Roger Banks, Andy Dyson, Mark Hanson,

Rob Messor. International wise Pete Morgan (ex North Wales) and gang from Australia,

Leonardo and his mates from Italy, Germany was represented by Gerhard and mates from Frankfurt and also the Berlin gang were there in force as well. Long bus ride home or what.

As always a well-mixed crowd, which gives the event a well unique feel.

So that was that, top sounds, top crowd, end result a top nite. One of the best just got

better.

Of course this is just my own view on it all, though everyone have spoke to on the nite and

after has said it was a top nite. If you haven’t made it there yet, well check the

playlists, check the sound clips, check the video clips, check the reviews on here and other

web sites, plus in many mags and fanzines and if it seems that its your cup of tea, get your

arse down there and give yourself a enjoyable quality rare soul nite.

Mike
