Review - 100 Club Saturday by Irish Greg
The 100 Club All-nighter was one of the best Ive attended over the last year or so. The music was of a very high standard (even higher than normal) with Mick Smith spinning the newly discovered (Unreleased) version of Trick bag by CP LOVE and not Tommy Tate as some people are saying. Mick also spun the likes of The Inmates, Bobby Rich, Classics on Yang-G, Eric Lomax C/up, True-Image, Magnetics plus many more top raritys.
Shifty was also on top form and spun some great new 6ts stuff that I have not heard before plus many one offs.
Adey C. spun the record of the night though, unreleased track by The Charmaines (stomping Soul/RnB in real Dr.Truelove style).
Adey also spun an unreleased version of the Classic Doris Troy track ILL DO
ANYTHING by DEE DEE SHARP.
Carl Willingham did his bit but I just didnt rate his so called RnB tracks (much to Early for my ears! Some sounding like 5ts blues) but when called upon he spun some nice rare tunes.
Butch? Well nothing needs saying-The DJs D.J. really delivered a rarest of the rare set with Mello Souls, Tranells, Mayfield Singers, Nat Hall & many of his current
The night was also helped as many of the London crowd pissed it upearly on at The Pleasure Unit in Bethnal Green (Soul/Mod pub in East London).
The 100 Club Atmosphere was great and that certainly added to the night, long may that continue. Remember I usually leave The 100 All-nighter at around 6am but this one was so good that at 8am I was still dancing to The Impressions while my mates were playing with paper Aeroplanes on the stage!!!.
