I arrived outside the 100 Club just before 10.50 pm and there was a queue already, but of course it was the night to buy anniversary tickets. Luckily the doors opened fairly promptly so no long wait, after having my bag checked out paid my money, picked up tickets for friends and went down the stairs.

Despite the queue at first it seemed fairly quiet but after after about 30 minutes suddenly it filled up and remained full until 6 am.

As is normal Ady opened proceedings, quite a few records I didn't recognise but he included the Volumes' Same Old Feeling and surprisingly (at least to me) Living Above Your Head by Jay & The Americans. This is one of my favourite old 60s pop records, and I understand it was played at the Wigan Casino, but I'm sure purists may have been dismayed.

Tomas McGrath followed and did two sets during the night. In his first one he played mainly oldies, got me on the dance floor for You Gotta Let Go by Marcia Hines. His second set later in the night included Bessie Banks Mecca classic Best Is Yet To Come and Celeste Hardy's You're Gone. Also he included some Modern Soul sides which had a mixed reception from some of my friends but I find it interesting to hear different sounds.

Butch followed Tomas's first set and started off with Man Of My Word. Included in this set was Kiss Me Goodbye Girl and one of my favourite of his cover ups, Take Me Away, covered up I think as Ruby Andrews.

His second set started with Roller Coaster by the Royal Robins, followed by among others the Four Dynamics, Willie Tee's ultra rare You Peeped My Cardhole, and Sammy Lee's What Goes Around.

Will Askew, the other guest from Merseyside did two sets, including Walk On Into My Heart, Crook Your Little Finger and new to me Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles' You Forgot How To Love.

Ady did his usual middle of the night set mixing new acetates with club favourites, e.g. Can't Shake It, I Wanna Be Good To You, Sorry Is The Word and He'll Be Leaving You.

Flanny was due to guest but unfortunately he was sick, so his place was taken by Paul Lawrence, a regular who has guested at the club before. And he was a worthy substitute, thanks for playing the Essex IV for me.

Finally it was 5.30 and Ady did his final ending set. Don't Tear Me Down, Sweet Memories, I'll Never Stop Loving You and finally Baby I Need Your Loving. And that was it, lights on and time to leave.

It was really nice to see so many of my friends including several I'd not seen for ages; was very good to spend time chatting to Carmen and Jackie among others.

Another excellent night but was surprised to see a large puddle of liquid (beer?) on the floor, near the bar. And also at least person jigging around with a pint in his hand.

It was 40 years ago on this night that the 6Ts Rhythm and Soul Society held their first night, not at the 100 Club by the way. It's still going strong, quite a record don't you think? I wasn't there at the start I'm sorry to say but great respect to Ady and co for keeping it going. Nothing else quite like it on our musical scene I think. Let's cherish it.

well f++cking hell I haven't been down here for a while and the dance floor was largely as usual too packed to move around too much on plus the floor is quite awful, sort of grainy, its been refitted from that old horrible melted wax appearance it had- exacerbated by the passage of drinks, it got stickier-however from the time of the first drop the music was just an earsplitting spectacular how could you not love it. At first many tracks sounded like a klaxon being wound up by an elderly ARP warden, and you thought whats this and then boom-magnificent. Old school rarities with a modern set splitting it in half-an old club retrining to its glory days-can only recommend, faces old and new grinding the night out in style and panache. Said itd be my lats niter but im not so sure now, AC needs to live til hes 130 because nobody puts on a night like this man does.

Top drawer as usual...

With a bonus 100 club debut set from Will Askew sandwiched nicely between Messrs. Dobson & Croasdell. Pure brilliance !!!

Good to catch up with friends, looking forward to the milestone 40th next month.
