Review: Wilton Niter Last Friday by Mark H
Well seems like was a definite weekend and a half if quality rare soul is
your bag. Onwards and Upwards!
Mouse and Andy Dyson started things off with some class tunes, like Love
Stormy Weather, that thing on Transitional "It Dont matter baby" that is
the dogs danglies, Clarence Hill and some new discoveries that I didnt
John Hosler was on next with things like "man from soul" and the great
[need a copy] Tootsie Rollers "Give Me Love".
John Britton played some great Modern tunes and Richard Caiton.
Roger Banks played the great Charmaines "Standing in the need of love" and
Soul Bros. Inc "Pyramid". Also must mention the mega Creations track he
played. No idea what it is though, but it sounded like a Motown acetate?
Chicago Shane Cox treated us to some mega Chi-soul like, Ernest Mosley,
Attractions [June Bug], Del-Tours, Vel-vets [Number One], Perk Lee on Boss
[need one of these too.]. Then over to the west coast for Ty Karim "you
really made it good to me" Romark
Saus was up to his great self and what a pity he hasnt the inspiration he
once had to d.j. more, as the Wilton is really the only place you can see
him now. Dittis of distinction included, Johnnie mae Matthews "Mamas gonna
stop you", Lonnie Lester "you cant go", Demetrice Faire "young girl",
Spidells "Dream girl" plus a few Motown goodies like, Marvellettes "only
your love can save me" and Four Tops "I cant escape your memory" and
staying with Detroit, Shades of blue "A way to love you".
That left Bob Hinsley to finish off proceedings. Highlights from the three
quarters of an hour we heard before myself and Chalky left were, Trends "Not
too old to cry", Bobby Rich and Don & Ron.
Great night as usual.
2002 dates are as follows:
all Fridays 11 - 6
