Agree with Pete. Until I downloaded these podcasts I'd never heard Ree Flores, Eric Mercury, Jesse Henderson … the list goes on. So cheers Chalky and seasons greetings to you.

Best

Mike

 

Thanks Mike and seasons greeting to you and everyone else.

Had some time to myself so a second podcast for your listening from Soul Sam, be warned you 60's lovers it is Modern Soul, much of it new or recent at the time they were played in around 1984.

The Stafford Story continues with a nod to 100 club and 6t's co founder Ady Croasdell. He did play a big part in the mid 80's soul scene with the many unissued gems that not only did Ady play but they went to Keb and Guy as well. Here is a podcast made up partly by what I have on a recording of Ady at the TOTW and other tracks he was featuring in his sets back then.

32 years ago this month (April 1982) The Stafford all-nighters under the banner of the Top Dog Soul Club opened it’s doors. We celebrate that fact with the 50th podcast in the series that tells that story of the all-nighter through the music.

 

I started these podcasts in 2011 and never for one minute thought I would be hear 50 podcasts later, I originally thought 10, maybe 15 but once I had started I couldn’t stop as I just got more and more information the more I delved into this period of history on the UK Northern Soul Scene. There has been some great, fantastic music, there has like any period in history of the scene some poor ones too but that just makes all the more interesting and it is part of the history. I hope like me you have enjoyed this story so far. Stick with it though as there are still more to come.

 

We celebrate the 50th podcast fittingly with none other than it’s driving force behind the night Dave Thorley. A great selection of across the board tracks. The odd carry over from Yate and Wigan amongst them, and the odd track or two that might be best forgotten some might say. But none the less an interesting and enjoyable selection.

 

P.W. Cannon - The Beating Of My Lonely Heart - Hickory The Star Treks - Gonna Need Magic - Veep

The “Q” - That’s The Way - Hound

(Richard’s James Lewis & Case Of Time cover up late Wigan, massive at Stafford for Dave)

Three Shades Of Soul - Being In Love - Enjoy

Hattie Winston - When This Battle Is Over - Unissued Studio Acetate

The California Playboys - Trying To Become A Millionaire - Loadstone

Ivan Neville - Dance Your Blues Away - Cookie

Four Sonics - If It Wasn’t For My Baby - JMC

Thanks for the comments Geoff, appreciated and nice to get a bit of feedback.  There's a fair bit amongst this lot still widely unknown and something for DJ's to look through.

Actually, it the copy that Gary played was the soulmates 'sock-in-soul' on double soul, because myself and tim ash found it on one of our US trips.

Funny enough I've just found a copy on Double Soul of The Soulmates. seems they tried to get as much bang for their buck on every track they recorded
