Nice find, good old Pete Shirley there.

How you keeping Barry .................................hope one is ok. See you are busy with Yogi and the scottish weekender at present. Do believe Peter has returned to these shores. Take care :thumbsup: .

Thanks for posting Beryl and Fred :thumbsup::lol: , seem to recall attending only the one all nighter at the Dompolski Club during 1987 in Bedford with Pete and Louise, as at this time only less than 30 hardcore regular travelling folks - kept the rare Modern Soul Scene alive. And of the handfull left - did not Mike Godfrey and Mary promote this nite? Its was when Kev Kelly and Soul Sam where inseparable and Sandbox (Mary Comer) and the shit Ron Jonas - Cross My Heart were big tunes. But look at the playlist :yes: . And Parkers was on lift off.

The first was August 87 and I think there was only one more after this in the autumn. I was at this one, you're right it was a bit thin on the ground punters wise but I think Leighton Buzzard Unicorn was on the same night. Some great stuff played that night and I always remember some fella walking off the dance floor in disgust cos Space Lady got played (by Sam, I think) and it was far too much of an old sound for him!!! Mick Godfrey had a stall there and he sold me so much stuff I wasnt planning on, I had to bunk the train home.

those flyers are a great snapshot moment in time sort of thing

just having a quick driveby pimp the gallery moment

there is a fair few old flyers up in the 1980-90s events albums

http://www.soul-sour...99-soul-events/

if you has got the time to post am sure they be a worthy addition to it and be appreciated by other members in future

same goes for anyone else with quality archive type stuff

always feel its worth adding the worthwhile stuff to the gallery as well as posting in the forum

as in the gallery - the pics do still stay in focus, while in the forum they do sort of 'disappear' once the forum post goes down the list

Hi Simon,

I think thats what Pete and myself were discussing [whats that 12" that i have stuck to my hand]....i seem to think one of 2 titles from that era????? zooming in on the photo probably Crosswinds -Fire[its getting hot] ???? which was still being played covered up????? or could have been Brothers by Choice ALA outing Girl i need you too????? .......but whatever it was it looks like i was hanging on to it for dear life???? bear in mind this was over 24 years ago so the attention to detail aint what it use to be.....

tfk :D

Im trying to get some old Echoes to build a story of the 80's Modern Soul Scene ( a mate has the lot.. all in order too) . I was hoping for some help from Stuart Cosgrove but hes way too busy wink.gif

I bet that 12 was Crosswinds ( the Patrick Moten coverup) . I sold a 7 of that on Manships for a nice price :D . We need a time machine hey

On seeing the photo I said he's got a copy of Crosswinds in his hand there, so I'll second it.

tfk :yes:

Looks more like J P Rodgers LP or the 12" on Inculcation - as the Brothers By Choice 12" was distributed in the ALA silver and blue company label sleeve, and of the few handful of Crosswinds 12" copies around back then - sleeve's were red. But hey ho :yes: .

What was that 12" by Sterling Harrison called - that Mr Ellis played back then.....................anyone.

Thanks.

Not to sure about the label or the title, but at the time it was one of many nice tunes spun by Mr Ellis. Seems this 12" like many, having gone into hiding after a short period of exposure.

Kind regards,

Nikolas :) .
