First Lifeline - Another review and playlists


Published Date: 2004/4/7 7:50:00

Fed up with hearing the same old same every week, Andy Dyson and Mick H decided to do something about it. They decided to assemble the cream of the Rare Soul DJs and put them all on together at the same venue!!! Approximately 6 months ago they approached Sheridan's to hold the night there and Chris and Rodz jumped at the opportunity of having Andy and Mick's club at their venue.

So some six months later after some heavy advertising, flyers, magazines, cyberspace and with a heavyweight line up of Butch, Andy, Mick, Tim Brown, Cliff Steele, Nick Stevenson as residents and the first special guest being Marco the night finally arrived. Andy & Mick were hoping for a successful night but don't think they really expected the turn out they got for the first night.

There was a real buzz leading up to the night and any doubts Andy or Mick had soon disappeared as 300 soulies from all over the country, North West, North Wales, Yorkshire, West Midlands, East Coast, Scotland, London, Kent came through the doors. It was Sheridan's first full house!!!!Nick Stevenson was the first behind the decks the night kicked off with Cornelius Dwyer - Stepping Too Fast on 20th Century and what followed was nine and a half hours (officially) of quality rare soul. The likes of which I haven't heard at a nighter for years. Once the floor the floor kicked into action it remained busy for the rest of the night with the punters thankfully accepting that even though rare and not so well known they are just as good if not better (well they are IMO) than the usual diet of the top 200 you tend to hear week in week out. At its height there was little spare room on the floor as DJ after DJ fed the expectant punters with what they wanted and they lapped it up. Just goes to show that there is a market for quality unknown lesser known rare soul and forgotten, thinking mans (or woman's) oldies. The record bar was just as busy as the main room and you didn't miss a record as the music was piped through for all to hear. For me this was the best nighter musically for many a year and many agreed that this was as good as it gets and roll on the next one!!!!

So if you didn't taste what was on offer you better get your ticket as soon as possible for the next date, 17th April at Sheridan's. Promises to be every bit as good as this one with Soul Sam being the special guest along side the residents.
