A real packer on Saturday, busy from almost the start. And a lot of new faces as well. Tomas opened proceedings doing mainly oldies, e.g. You're Gone and You Gotta Let Go, obviously people were up for dancing as the floor filled even earlier than usual.

The first guest DJ followed Tomas, Hendrik Irmscher from Germany, a new name to me. I didn't know many of his first set but he did include Do You Remember and I Can't Stay Away. Busy floor again.

Next on were the second guests, the dynamic duo of Brian and David Pinches from Doncaster. I've known them for some time, seeing them at the Scarborough weekender and at the Horse & Groom Sunday sessions, men of very good musical taste, and nice guys as well. They got me and a few others out on the floor for Heartaches And Pain, in fact there whole set kept the floor going.

Ady then made his debut that night mixing acetates and current favourites including the latest Anniversary record Carolyn Crawford's Ready Or Not Here Comes Love, He'll Be Leaving You, Why Not Tonight, Here I Am (at least that's what I know it as but I'm sure he called it by another title and did he say it was by Minnie Ripperton?), Timmie Carr & The Persianettes' I Could Never Stop Crying Over You (my record of the night) and ending with Voodoo Mademoiselle.

Then it was Butch. After last Saturday's appearance at the Spirit Of The Orwell where he played more on the Modern Soul side it was back predominantly to Northern Soul with a few exceptions. So many good records but hearing Pee Wee Shucks & Huey's Beside Myself, followed by Esther Grant's Let's Make The Most Out Of Love and then the Chuck Jackson cover up was soul and dance floor heaven. Slighter slower tracks included I'm Knocking At Your Heart, Just Can't Leave You and Talkin' 'Bout Love moved into the Modern area. Needless to say he kept the dance floor moving.

For his second set Tomas mixed oldies including Bobby Treetop's Wait Till I Get To Know You with Modern Soul current popular tracks like You Can Be A Star by the Luther Davis Group and ending with Gangster Boy.

Back to Hendrick who played mainly oldies, ideal tunes for that time of the night, remember him playing Frankie Beverley's classic If That's What You Wanted, never fails to get people dancing although to be fair they were already on the floor.

The penultimate set went to Brian and David and they filled it extremely well, plenty of big nighter tunes, Sha La La, All My Life and near the end Count The Days (that seems to get us all up on our feet) and I'd Like To Get Near You. Their set reminded me I must make a trip up to the Horse & Groom in the new year.

I'm not sure if it was them or Ady who played I'm Stepping Out Of The Picture at the end of their set or was it the beginning of Ady's?

But as usual Ady finished the night off in his own inimitable fashion. Temptation's 'Bout To Get Me, It's Torture, an unissued version of I Wish I Knew (Butterfly) by Joe Buckner, and ending with I'll Never Stop Loving You and finally Baby I Need Your Loving.

There were still a real crowd at the end, more than usual I'd say. The general opinion seemed to be that it had been an amazing night, both musically and socially. Great to see so many of my friends from near and far. Lovely to see Lisa Hurley, hadn't seen her since Cleethorpes a couple of years ago, good to catch up.

I certainly had a good time, my legs giving me hell on Sunday proved it.

Thanks to Ady and all the DJs for entertaining us so well, and thanks to the staff of the 100 Club.
