45s Associated With Certain'Current'Venues

Recommended Posts

"this was a big sound in the early days of Wigan"

"this was a Stafford favourite"

The point I am trying to make is that you never hear people describe certain songs linked to venues of today. Can anyone explain why this doesnt happen anymore? Is this because the big dj's play everywhere these days rather than be loyal to fewer venues? Are the big DJ's playing the same records?

I would like to know if anyone can tell me which records make you want to say "this is a big Lifeline tune" or "this reminds me of the Wilton"

Have the days gone when records get linked to venues?

nice one dan. probably sums up the majority of the issue.

I think the closest we get to exclusivity is thru certain dj's who have 'big' one-offs etc. You know you are going to hear certain songs played by the likes of Butch that you aren't going to hear anywhere else.

To put it another way...which songs remind you of your favourite current venue?

Great topic. :lol:

It is something that has happened, and until it is pointed out, you dont even realise.

I associate Margaret Little with Soul Sam. No venue, just the DJ.

But I associate Pyramid with Stafford. No DJ just the venue.

And I associate Neal Brown - If by chance with Soul Source, because before I met Dan he recommended it on here. And what a great rec it was :lol:

Stormy Wynters 'Lifesaver' Atlantic (i think?)

Lifeline - Sheridans

Still love this record. Great to hear it at Crewe the other night courtesy of MickH.

What about the south coast clubs and North Wales brigade?...you lot must have some sounds that do the business but overlooked elsewhere?

The disco at The Palace Hotel, Rhyl,The Orbit, in the early to mid 70s has to be Joy Love Joy "In Orbit", bit obvious but they were good times :lol:

I think because all DJ's DJ all over the place its pretty hard to associate a tune with a club now days unlike in the past, all the bigger DJ's on the scene now all DJ at all of the bigger clubs

That was almost a tounge twister LOL

Think again :lol: Mercury :lol: Personally associate this record with Cleethorpes and 100 Club as it was the first places I heard it...long before Lifeline. But it was played at the time anywhere Butch djed so no real association with a club if you know what I mean.....

Kinda the point I tried to make too, maybe which tune do you associate with a certain DJ would have been a better discussion Shane? :lol:

Jackie WIlson - Nothing but Blue Skies and Exodus are always the last two records played at BSSC in Hatfield, but as was said earlier it tends to be more the DJs that records are synonimous with now rather than the venue

I tend to assosiate sounds with DJ's these days rather than venues. Not sure if its because I have access to more venues these days or if times have just changed.

Yep that's also true but more than ever at Prestatyn..I think they had it on 3 times a day in every room (except the Royston Vasey room of course.....)

:lol::lol:

Can't think of particular examples at the moment but there are tunes I associate with venues - maybe more smaller local ones, but some bigger ones too - probably because that's where I heard them played first or most often by the residents at these clubs. Suppose most things have been played somewhere else before so there is less of it these days, but will be interesting to see if we look back in 10-20 years time and talk about 'Lifeline'/'Soultown'/'Orwell'/wherever sounds... :lol:

that could be good too, however i was originally looking to see which tunes are associated with particular venues. i didnt think we would find many to be honest. dan explained the reasons why very well i think.

Do you think it's maybe also partly because venues don't seem to last as long these days? Might be just the impression I get of the past but it seems that events went on in the same place for longer than they tend to now (might not be right of course, I may be misled by people's romanticising about the old days whistling.gif ). Especially recently been a lot of promoters/promotion teams having to move about for various reasons - is there less venue 'identity' than there used to be? :thumbsup:

Mandrill-Too late

Bonny Herman-Hush dont cry (Patience Valentine cover up)

Gloria Lynn-Tower of Strength

Isley bros-My love is your love

Miracles-If your mother only knew

Original Cadilacs-I`ll never let you go

Jimmy Reed Jnr-I aint going nowhere

Bretby classics one and all...........

Dont forget to be at the mega re-union at Belvedere club, Belvedere club, Burton on Trent on October 22nd to hear these tunes and so many more....probably the most influential venue of the early 90s.....

Sorry Shane still thinking of your original question aout why sounds now dont get associated with venues (partly coz I never go out enough to know what sounds are played now whistling.gif ) but its question that interests me reading things on here.

A lot of the Wigan/Stafford/Mecca type association I think is because in general people went to the same venue week in week out, this allowed djs to persevere with records etc so easier to break and also for people to associate with venue. Today it must be a nightmare, particularly with so many local dos going on, I assume different crowds go to many of these dos (with the exception of the few on here that seem to go everywhere :thumbsup: )even Butch must have to vary his set slightly when playing different venues.

Think Dans points about familiarity are spot on also.

Really interesting topic, even if I have strayed a bit off current point.

Cheers

Jock

For The Dome I always think of Martha Starr - Love is the only solution (Flynny, I think?)

For South Coast I think of Gloria Taylor - Total disaster (Steve C) or one we always end with in Eastbourne is Edwin Starr - I have faith in you
