3 Before 8

3 before 8

Wigan Casino

Ooooooh I wish I had been older enough to have gone but sadly I missed all the baggy pants and Brut 33!

When some one says to me Wigan Casino I always think of the 3 before 8, if the 3 before 8 were down to me I would have the following:

Eddie Holman - This Will Be A Night To Remember (1977) DISCO

That's the extended play one not the short version mind!

MANDRILL TOO LATE

JESSE JAMES If you want a Love affair

That's my 3 before 8, I could hear those three on a continuous loop!

I love Northernsoul!

What's your 3 before 8, you can choose what you like

I agree. I asked a question a while ago about the three before eight as to when they were first put together as the end of night finale. Only Mr. Webbydublin replied I think.

For a short while I go to pieces was the fourth before 8. Have to agree with the sentiment of the emotion of those 3 tho'. Not the best northern soul records by some way but, still think Tobi Legend a perfect ender, happy to be played as the flames lick my coffin.

There you go, Rick, me and you in total agreement finally on something mate! I can still remember when I first heard TOBI LEGEND (my fave of the 3) at the age of 14, it sounded so beautiful and I can still appreciate the sheer beauty of that record even though it's now on that overplayed records of all time list.

No, they are the enders of all-time, without a doubt.thumbsup.gif

Not if i beat him to it,Debbie! Would you like to tell SS of it's significance to you...or maybe you could PM me? :yes::wub:

I said to the other gent, i dont really like the goodnight & goodbye theme, its a bit too :lol:

I just prefer to hear a few good tunes before i go :wicked:

I know i have said it many a time, but the Antellects track is my fav, so i dont mind if its played anytime, but it would be great to have that last dance to that track :wub:

then i can go home & have some sex! :wub::lol:

I Think the principle of ender tracks is a VERY traditional and important element of a nighter.Its an emotional come down and closure of the night.You have had all night to dance to the uptempo stormers and there is no better way to leave than a slow dance to a spine- tingling slab of soul

Think the casinos 3 before 8 are perfection and will never be beaten,but if i have to choose alternatives i think i'll go for

Carl Carlton---You Can't stop a Man in love

Betty Lavette---Almost

Bessie banks ---Go Now

much better than sex,that can wait till sunday afternoon

Great post, those days of the Mobile DJ's were great and some real characters. There was one in Southampton who I always remember because he must have been one of the first to get his own jingle made up on an 8 track cassette. A blast of female voices shrieking were then met by a guy's voice proclaiming proudly:

'BY JINGO - IT'S DAVE DINGO!!!!!!!!!!'

Fooking priceless but he played good soul!thumbsup.gif
