Last Ever Record Played At Venues

Guest Little Anthony

What were the last ever records played at venues...(on the last night)

I'm thinking:

Wigan: Dean Parish..Im on my way

Mr M's: Frankie Valley ..The Night

Original Wheel: Barbara Lewis..Someday we're gonna love again

Cats: Walter Jackson..Where have all the flowers gone

Blackpool Mecca Young Holt Limited, California Montage..although it depends what you class as the last night..any other ideas..Torch?

Capitol Soul Club at the Dome was Jimmy Ricks 'Oh what a feeling', more often that not...though when we had the chance to over run we always through in a few 100% discs for the thrill of it all!

These Old Shoes used to be the Dells, 'Make sure'.

Isn't this thread supposed to be about the last record played when a venue closed down - not what was played as the regular ender?

These two might not be the same thing :thumbsup:

I was nowhere near old enough to have gone to the wheel first time round (Brazenose Street or Whitworth Street0 but have always thought..through third hand info. that Barbara Lewis was the last record played before it closed down..stand corrected (as the man sdaid in the orthopedic shoes) if anyone can comment who was actually there on the last night.

That apart..what was the last record played at the Torch before it closed

At / on the last one at The Torch , the record was Tony Michaels " I Love The Life I Live " .

The first one played at the first all - nighter was Bobby Garrett " I Can't Get Away "

Me neither-----but according to the excellent book anout the Wheel--CENTRAL 1179---AT THE LAST 2 YRS AT Whitworth St, the last tune was always Jimmy Radcliffe at 7-30 a.m.

I was told that the last record (not sure if that means THE last or the last each week) at one of the older venues (Torch, Wheel I'm not sure which) was It Keeps Raining by Fats Domino. Is this right?

when the aqua at hednesford " finished" the first time, little scotty played......ramsey lewis - wade in the water....CUMMMMMMMMM ONNNNNNNNN!!!

NEVER FORGET TRENTHAM, a night, for which i compiled the entire main room playlist and neil rushton closed with "just say goodbye" - esther phillips....WOW! what a tear jerker that was.

the wonderful lea manor all-nighter finished with al wilson's " ive got a feeling".....and the tears flowed there as well, 7 years of sublime tunes and countless hours of informative education about real soul music, thanks again, to tate, lynne & martin.

note: you can still see the entire playlists for trentham and lea manor on mr. rimmer's SOULFULKINDAMUSIC website

The last record played at Stafford TOTW was Edward Hamilton - Baby Don't You Weep, which pissed off many of us. As good as the record is, it's an oldie and untypical of TOTW. That was a big let down, but somehow fitting that it was played by Chris King, a fella who should never have been anywhere near the decks (if in the club at all).

The last record played at L'Ambassadeur Bradford was I don't want to discuss it- Little Richard .

It was playing when Squad came in to raid it and a copper knocked it off the turntable. I was stood right next to it.

Unless it was allowed to remain open after the raid pending the court case?

If it was did I go?

At the Mecca it was "California Montage" by the Young Holt Unlimited, may very well be the most played last record ever considering the Mecca went on for so long............................:thumbsup:

T.C.

you often mention this Robert from the shop charachter TC.

I'd like to meet him.

Rumour has it he knows almost everything that anyone can ever know about the Northern scene.

THE GEAR, THE SOUNDS, THE VENUES, THE PEOPLE, THE WHOLE LOT.

personally i doubt such a character exists.

If I ever met him I'd test him on little things, like did the stairs to the Cats go up or down or how could you tell the difference between real 2 tone pinks and false ones. Was Little Willy really little? Are chalkies shite or not? Which is rarer, Out on the floor on Thunderbird or Beautiful Night on Parlophone issue?

and so on.

I doubt if anyone can know all that stuff.

A few more tricky ones:

Did Smokey or Matchy ever smoke?

What colour were delipsoids?

What was stimplene?

How easy was it to jump the train to Crew from Sheffield?

How hard was it to swallow a benzedrex inhaler on a train|?

What type of engine pulled the train from Manchester to Crewe?

How much danger where you in, roughly, if Larry Lightning knew you had just done a chemist?

Why did Market Harborough have to shut at 5.a.m?

How did you get into Blackpool Mecca without a tie?

How many sounds at Blackpool Mecca were dynamite and how many were shit?

Did Kegsy where smart kegs?

Whats the difference between Alan Day and Johnny Day?

Did more than 76 people go to the 76 club?

Did CHAMPION by Willie |Mitchell ever exist as a single before it was re-issued on UK London?

Whats unusual about Errol Dixon---I want?

More later
