Bongalis - Under cover - MS, only heard this a couple of times there, don't know if it was played anywhere else. Found one a few months later in one of those south London shops. Still have the record to this very day, love the way it rolls from stereo to mono all the way through the track.

Bongalias did get played at The Mecca early 74.

Also a big floor fuller for Tony Walker around local clubs around East-Lancs in the summer of 74.

A lot of records on this tread where played in other clubs, and alot before Wigan played them.

That is always the case, I have been talking to a lad on facebook and he was telling me about records that broke at the Cats 1st.

I lot of them I had always put down as Mecca or Torch records, but never went to the Cats so I wouldn't know.:thumbsup:

Sisters Love was big everwhere before Alan Rhodes started DJing at Wigan.

I would have thought it was Russ who 1st played this at the Casino.

No doubt that Alan did play a good number of records 1st at Wigan.

Daytrippers - Part of the game - Karate

I'm told was popular at Wigan during the mod revival period 77-79.

Maybe not the greatest sound, but nicely fills the ground where the Northern Soul and mod scenes overlap.

Early Wigan ------ G.Davis & R.Tyler - "Hold On Help Is On The Way" ...... just one of those sounds that always reminds me of Casino

Chessmen - Why Can't I Be Your Man

I stopped going to Casino when Cleethorpes opened up in '75 but was Alpaca Phase III - "I Like To Party" ever a Casino spin or was it a bit too Mecca sounding? I remember Sam spinning it at the Pier circa late '75ish

Just a few I can remember

Rules Gil Blanding -

Just one more chance Patrick Bradley

Stop and you will become aware Helen Shapario

Tied to your heart The Lucky Charms

Gil Blanding is played regular by Jim Atkins (fine tune)

The Patrick Bradley was played at Black Hearts all day session

Helen Shapiro - Dave Tid's 'Palais' Spots (nottm soul club)

The Lucky Charms is a Tony Clayton spin (i think)

I cant help with forgotten spins, never went often enough. its great to see some great records listed though

These two really did it for me back in the day....and still do.......but seem to have fallen from grace too!

They're both a bit 'obvious' but I like obvious sometimes if you know what I mean!:thumbsup:

'Bunny' came out on general UK release I think in about 1976 so it wasn't played at the Casino much after that........

Regardless whether or not Bunny got many plays after 76 it along with The Artisitics is hardly forgotten are they, far from it, they must be two of the most popular oldies about, played at most oldies venues week inn week out.

Please stick to the topic of forgotten tracks please and not your obvious oldies/wigan spins!

Thought the thread was about 'forgotten' oldies, from what I can see 99% of the records mentioned are well known classics ???.......I would love for someone to list some genuinely forgotten sounds from any era........

As a slight aside, the 100 Club must be the only Allnighter generating its own oldies & has been for many years........

Thanks Chalky

I should perhaps have mentioned it on a list of spins I used to have on a tape like Steve after me (no offence to you Steve by the way)..........are these publicly discourteous comments over 'not very much' really necessary?

dogstoat

I haven't read Steve's post after you, I logged off, work to do and I haven't been publicly discourteous either, if you have a problem then please report the post as no wish to go down that path on here. All I asked was to keep to the topic in question, your post had no relevance to the topic at all with both records two of the most popular oldies you could mention. Like a said if you wish to take any further, then please press the report button and don't drag the topic down. Thanks :thumbsup:

Kev just because they are 70's releases doesn't mean they originated from the Mecca, Pennington obviously was did but Brandon & Johnson was a John Vincent spin at Wigan, Liberty was an Alan Rhodes spin at Wigan and was also played at Cleethorpes, how you going to know where it was played first when 3 venues have the same record?... I'll check the next lot with you make sure I don't make any more mistakes...

Actually Kev's right Pete. Both Bill Brandon & Lorraine Johnson and Liberty were Levine/Curtis discoveries and both broken at the Mecca first. I can clearly remember Levine telling me about it on the phone just after he'd returned from a U.S. trip and then Brad telling me about it following a trip to the Mecca a few days later. I always saw "Let Me Be Your Full Time Groover" as a Mecca/Cleethorpes record rather than a Casino classic anyway. It was a hard-sell at Wigan in my memory.

And "Girl You Better Wake Up" was a 100% Curtis spin right from the git-go and a huge record @ the Mecca long before it reached anywhere else. However, it didn't take long for a zillion copies to flood in, so the take-up and follow-through was accelerated which resulted in the record peaking and dying really quickly.

However, this period was when certain records were being commercially 'nurtured' so it wouldn't be unusual for several people to get their hands on copies quick. Unless I'm totally mistaken, Levine found Bill Brandon & Lorraine Johnson either on a U.S. trip or via John Anderson, but crucially, he championed and absolutely hammered it and it worked like a dream at the Mecca for an eclectic and discerning audience. It was a floor-clearer at most other venues initially before it eventually took hold.

And Liberty was a 100% certified Mecca monster a good few weeks before it reached wider acceptance elsewhere. I'm pretty sure that Epic or Mel Bratt (where is he by the way?) would confirm that.

But, you're right Pete. It's always a contentious issue about who did what and when. I was just lucky enough to be wired into the epicentre of the scene at the time whilst being aligned with an almost unhealthy tendency to over-focus on the acquisition of brilliant rare records. Does this sound familiar?

really when Wigan started it brought together sounds that were popular from all over the place, after the void when the Torch closed down The Mecca, Catacombs ,Top rank Hanley were for us from Gloucester/Cheltenham the weekend ventures(plus our own nights)

Different areas always had their own "Top" sounds for example Proffessionals,Ty karim-Really made it good to me,Vala Reegan,Mamie Lee were standards down our way.,rarely played at Wigan also many short time(quality) records from Wigan that slipped by beause the commercial stuff Javells,Sharonettes were what the crowd WANTED :yes: footsee ,Kiki Dee-More today,Kelly Garrett etc plus of course Tomangoes,Louise lewis,Manifesto .the list is endless and obvious at the same time other quality sides were being discarded

Love from the far east-Master Four

cross my heart-Yvonne & Violets

come on let me love you-Moses Smith(mecca also)

i don´t want a ´playboy-Barbara Lynn

love has passed me by-Phil terell

No more tears-Bessie Jones

life goes on-Fabulous downbeats

Baby i need you-Lorraine & The Delights

any of the above would be nice(in my opinion) to be heard out at any do :thumbsup: even if i don´t go out often :hatsoff2:
