Your First All-Nighter..where & When

Northern Soul Yesterdays Guest

 
Posted

I was an old git of 26 by then.

I found out later why a lot of people would not talk to me at first.

it was because i was a bit older than the norm,they thought i was the plain clothes drug squad.

First record i heard was Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles - Loving Rules.

Sadly i dont think this gets played anywhere anymore,its rather a forgotten oldie.

Stu.

Same thing happened to me on my last visit to Wig, probably didn't help that I was on my own and about 3 foot taller than the little sprog who accused me - nearly cracked up laughing cos his voice had hardly broken...no.gif

Patti Labelle, great track, been spun a couple of times round here recently by Nige Brown and myself.

Hello Soulcarp,

Am just trying to put name to face as i may know you? The two people you mention are very much embedded in my memories, Pete 'ginger' Balance, rip and Mick Mullins, have spent many many and many a happy hour with them at various venues, went to the same schools etc, although they were in the next year up. Me and Pete lived 100yds (sorry metres) apart, Mick lived in the next village, (just by the river). Other people within this, could be; Mr Edwards, Mr Sinnet, Mr Box, Mr Barrett, Ms Wilson etc, some happy days. P.S. i am trying to think of first records, venues etc, but it is not easy, Herbie Mann? Jerry Butler? Billy Butler? James Carr? whatever it was it motivated something in my brain, and 42 yrs later I can honestly say that a day does not go by without me listen to a record with 'A SOUL' in it.

Regards Jimmy Welsh.

First was a Mod allnighter Lemon Tree Club Scarborough '87?? One of the Tony Class ones. I was only 14! Can't remember the first record but someone was playing Ray Barrettos' Soul Drummers in a near by bar or hotel foyer before we went in!

My first, The Attic Doncaster,

was a large dancehall built above the co-operative stores, big venue,

can't remember year, first tune heard on entering, Willie Tee, walking up a one way street.thumbup.gif

hi the 40 th anniversary do was last month for the attic -co-op ballroom i spent 8 hours at donny on a boxing day waiting for it to open, ferkin frozen , trudging the streets, until a doorman (god bless him) at the DANUM HOTEL let us in to the reception area to get our circulation back , had a good time when we got in ---last niter i ever went to without a car. about 18 months later was walking up those bloody enormous staircases when loads of coppers ran past! i turned round and again spent a couple of hours ferkin freezin on the streets of donny while the big raid was on until they pissed off and again had a goo d niter albeit a lot less crowded, a few months later it was closed.i ended up going to a dog track in earls barton 100 miles down the m1 for good block up,

Bugger me forgot about Bisley did go there too around 76' Inter City Soul Club also remember Shades Of Green in Camberley.

Regards - Mark Bicknell.

It would have either been Yate or Bisley 75 (wished I'd payed more attention at the time )

The first tune that I heard at Bisley was Purple haze- Johnny Jones . I remember being baffled at the time but really excited...yes.gif

& the last record that night was Walter Jackson -Where have all the flowers gone ?

Hi Mark,

Wow someone else who went to Shades of Green 76 or 75.   Now that was a classy club!!!!   Can you remember the DJ other than Kim Gold?

Too many beers since then as I can't decide whether Bisley (probably), was the first all nighter or if it was Wigan.

That'd be Steve Simpson, who used to go to Yate. Mark spins tunes on the scene to this day, mainly 'modern'. Think he did Cleethorpes a few years backthumbsup.gif

Yep Steve, he was in one of the main photos taken outside of Wigan featured in Blues & Soul and often reproduced since.

Ah yes, the Capricorn, run by Martin Junior, the metal work 'teacher' at Heron Wood secondary modern, the first taste of northern for many an aspiring Aldershot soul boythumbsup.gif

Funny enough my main memories of the Cap, are watching the second Ali/Frazier, a dodgy pinball where if you wacked the machine in the right place it nearly always gave you a replay, scotters all over the playground and the Matador by Major Lance.

Place called The Golden Disc in Keighley in 1966 & just turned 15 - 1st & only time I went there. After that, I was at The Twisted Wheel almost every weekend - very occasionally went to The Plebs (Halifax) or The Birdtrap (nr Burnley), but more often the Wheel - it won hands down for me. I was there just about every weekend from 1966-70. Told my parents I was sleeping at a mate's house - she used to say she was sleeping at mine...…...happy days!
