Reviews ''A really entertaining read essential stuff for any Northern Soul aficionado"...............Richard Searling

''Very Readable''.........Ady Croasdell of Kent Records

Foreword by John Manship: ''In the last 34 years I've have had nothing but admiration for a man who is honest, witty, intelligent and sometimes even humble'' ....................Ginger & Eddie, like Sam & Dave were a pairing that became synonymous with outstanding soul music. Playing every Saturday night to hoards of travelling teenagers who had ignored all outside musical influences and instead chose spend their weekends dancing to the discoveries of Ginger, Eddie and others in the family of the "Pier". They were DJs who were responsible for exposing countless recordings that had previously never been undiscovered. That was in 1974, some 34 years later absolutely nothing has changed and the enthusiastic Ginger is still wowing the faithful with his imaginative DJ sets of the super-rare, the recently discovered and the forgotten classics.


I present the weekly soul show on radio Lancashire in between records I announce forthcoming events. Ginger is mentioned all the time, more than anybody else. Doesn't that tell you something, it tells me he is the best in the business, and everybody wants him...............Keith Fletches BBC Lancashire Radio presenter

Ginger and Eddie started the Northern Scene in Todmorden they spawned a generation of Northern Soul followers at the local youth club. The town's Northern Soul heritage was entirely down to Ginger Taylor and Eddie Antemes............Tim Brown

To me Ginger is the embodiment of Northern Soul. He was there when I got started, and he is still here now. In my opinion nobody worked harder to get the scene going again in the 1990s. We owe it mainly to him that it did...........Clare Shard

He is a good friend of mine, he does a lot people don't hear about, he certainly helped me when I needed him and lets not forget he has got the sounds.... Roman DJ and Promoter
