Magnetics - Lady in green

    • Awesome super rare monster, love it!
      123
    • Don't care how rare, utter tosh!
      15
    • Would like to own one, but wouldn't dance to it

I voted 'not fussed either way', i don't hate it but i don't like that bloody trumpet (if that's what it is) and the harmony is dreadful, so i never dance to it. I don't mind that it's messy (One Gold Piece is a masterpiece imo) so it's not that, it just doesn't touch me like other music.

I voted 'Awesome super rare monster, love it!'

I remember hearing it at one of the first Keele University allnighters around 1989, the sound system in there was brilliant & so was most of the music...Happy days thumbsup.gif

Lady in Green is utter out of tune bobbins.

t'other is fantastic though.

It sounded bloody fantastic when it was sung live at Prestatyn with the other members of The Volumes on backing vocals. Moments like that don't come around too often these days. Awesome soul record. IMHO

Well impressed with that mate. :thumbup:

Simsy are you and Kylee not agreeing again :thumbup:

:thumbup: Nah, just got in from work and was listening to it and I remembered how vehemently Karen Krane hated it and indeed actively sabotaged a request I put in with Carl Fortnum one night at the 100 Club.... Thought "I feel a Box poll coming on" :thumbsup:

Bit of research - 'mutes' give it that distinctive horn sound, the killer mid tempo beat, the finger clicking, the breaks make this record so special (for me anyway).

I voted " awesome " remember getting this on tape via Rob and Chris Marriott during the Stafford era , legendary super rare side then , and still very hard to get now .The flip is brilliant and probably the even better side .Sure it's messy , but then lots of our fave records are , it's Rare Soul ain't it ? Best,Eddie

Its one of those records that make me want to weep, its that good, there's just something that strikes a chord within me & that musical 'hook' is so emotional, it kills me every time.........remember it from Wigan & have had an intense love affair ever since, the nice thing being you very rarely hear it out, so when ya do...........wooooooooooooshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...........

Pleased to see the way the vote is going. Was thinking of adding 'Prefer The Other Side' as an option, but this is about LIG. Surprised there weren't more 'own but not dance' votes? Very queer ... :lol:

Magnetics_LadyInGreen_issue.jpg

Just voted 1st box, but if you would have asked when I 1st heard it 78 or 79 I world have voted in 2nd box.

It took about 20 years to grow on me, but I have always loved that intro, it was the vocal that took me years to get used to.

Think I've mentioned this before, but Was there the night you bought it Ted, My self, Paddy, Rich, Tony Reynolds, Adrian Peddly and some others from south b'ham......it was the gossip of the record bar, and we stayed about till the end of the Vic to hear it...

some things mould your musical tastes, that night certainly did...!!

Ted I remember you djing there one night in 1987 before we knew each other and you did one of the most fantastic spots I've ever heard, I taped it actually but the tape has long disappeared. I do remember you bollocking someone for booing when you played Joanie Sommers :)

From the first time Chris Marriott introduced me to this 30 years ago I've never liked itph34r.gif

I think Chris was one of the first ones to have it? Unless someone knows otherwise of course.

When the guys sang it at Prestatyn I took the opportunity to take a toilet breakunsure.gif

The other side is great thoughgood.gif

Fantastic Soul record, very very classy, if you don't get it you really are missing out.

Simon good.gif

Thats the kind of thing I normally say Simon and get lambasted for it :rolleyes::hatsoff2:

Must admit surprised at people not liking it but I am starting to realise thats the essence of Northern I suppose, people get different things from different records when judged as Northern, this one was always a bit special for me, I seem to remember this as one of the first big "collectors" records to be played, very occassionally, back in early 80's and made us look for something different. I am sure Chris Plant was guy I heard playing it but always heard talk of this family from Mansfield where one of the brothers had a copy along with , long before I knew Rob.

Will always love this, both sides, reminds me of what it was all about for me, both musically and people.

Not my favourite by a long way but the daft thing is, I listened to it the other week on a CD compilation and I can't get the tune out of my head!!

The SWONS perhaps?

Have a great Christmas

Morning Jocko Chris Plant you dont here that name very often any more but was a legend in the West Mids had a truly fantastic collection, Andy Spencer ended up with a lot of them, he sold up before Jim Wensiora did so the prices were even cheaper then. I remember Andy going to Plantys with £600 and comimg away with 6 of the top rarities of the day inc. Magnetics, Jimmy Burns and Jimmy Delphs. Chris told me when he was Djing down in London think it was the 100 club and a young keb Darge was up and down like a jack in the box looking to see if they were originals

Morning Ted and Merry Xmas

He was one of the first big influences on me, very friendly once you got over his shyness, and great taste, it was thanks to his tips I got some real biggies before they were known.

He even gave me career advice at the time as were on similar paths, very nice bloke and like so many from then doesn't get enough credit.

I have a great picture of him at Wigan with Gary Rushbrooke, similar blokes and both great influences I will post over next few days.

These were the days I spent much more time running up and down to check the decks than dance, which seems to be a crime in many peoples eyes these days :rolleyes::hatsoff2:

Happy xmas to you as well its a bit embrassing to keep on checking whats been played i normally ask Dave Welding as he seems to be the oracle. Last time i saw chris was 2/3 years ago when we did a Cavendish Suite reunion obviously he had to borrow records but he could still put them togetherbiggrin.gif

i,d like to add that without doubt the magnetics demo "file" copy along with the original sheet music in the file was probably one of THE highlights of my record collection,but strangely never hardly played it in a dj set.except when dickie and i were dj,in at lowton a few years back when we played all the magnetics one after the other.fantastic memories.

merry xmas george
