I used to be big mates with Vicky and Gino during the very early days at Cleethorpes,

Vicky was a great lass, had some right laughs, remember once she was extremely poorly at Cleethorpes with "horse sweat tablets", last saw her at Scarborough when all the Scene used to descend on the town for the bank holiday around 1976.

There was another lass from Peterborough a bit older called Vicky?

I remember going to a Doncaster Bailys 24 hr marathon many years ago,floods hampered the journey all the way from our starting point of Derby.On arrival the clubs managers and door staff were reluctent to let us in but Mary waved a magic wand distracted the staff and in we went.Thanks Mary.Gilly

This was the first ever soul do i went to.Saw it advertised in Blues and Soul and never looked back.Think it was 76 the rest is history.

Weren`t we just! It must have been because we were so young and weighed about 5 stones wet through! Or perhaps it was due to some additives we were partaking of at the time - fast dancing, fast talking, everything was speeding!!!!.... lol!

Hi Dave, defo not me that bought come on train for that price, i think it was maybe John Manship or John Vincent who paid that money for it then a couple of weeks later a few original copies turned up in small numbers,my brain cells not much better it has to be said lol, yea, great memories of fabulous nites chattiing with the likes of Dave Godin who loved "Cleethorpes" and had the utmost respect for Mary for what she achieved and for the DJ's for their taste in music, Mary and Colin, the Girls in the kiosk,The DJs and the Fans, "One Big Happy Family"

Mary didn't Show as was to poorly to attend, surprised no one been on and commented on the night, oh by the way has everyones ears stoped bleeding yet, The sound system was fab when we got in there early doors really set up well and just right but as soon the Knob Twiddlers got into it well my ears were ringing and and eventually it was just unbearable to be in the main room, loudness and distortion does not make better to the degree some records were unrecognisable to these ears, shame....................

Nice photo of her and Colin "fagging it" 😀

Mary.jpg

I was so sad to here that Colin had passed away 12th July 2019 (I may have missed it on another thread).

I lost touch a number of years ago and I will always remember how Mary and Colin came over for dinner one Saturday and my wife cooked them both a lovely meal (chicken divan (very 1970's and Colin asked for a second helping)) and we talked and talked......about soul and then some....RIP Colin....Top Man, behind a great lady and one of my inspirations in life and music

Another great Photograph of Mary And Colin (RIP) Alan, Thanks for Posting! Wonder what was going through Colins mind when this was taken coz he sure wasn't looking at the camera, Come on folks, What do you think,Keep it light hearted, I'll go for this to start it off.

"Little does she know That a well known record Dealer is round at our house going through her records, and i'll get that Vintage Motor Bike i've had my eye on!"

The One above with Colin Fagging it , Mary and Colin at the"Britains got Talent Live Show" Thinking 'That Bloody John Manship Can't Sing!' Needs to stick to finding Rare Soul Records 🤣

You know maybe we could have a thread where people who have funny soul related (or any other subject) photographs in funny or unusual situations and we could submit  what we think could have been said or thinking like above two photographs, i'm sure we all have some funny or just strange photographs that would be prime candidates, We could ALL do with a CHEER UP and something to make us SMILE in theses trying times......

Hi,

I was the Sound Engineer / Equipment Provider for Mary and Colin Chapmans Northern Soul Events and even get a credit on the CD they put together.

 

I lost contact with them after being given a copy of the CD - are they still around?

 

I don't want to sign up for the website, but I don't know how else to make contact.

 

Graham.
