You Are Invited To An Ovo Venue As A Guest Dj You Can Play 12 Records What Are They ?

Recommended Posts

Guest allnightandy

Should get some interesting selections

Oh! And YOU have to OWN the records you choose !

It has to be your best set as you will be judged for a DJ of the year award at the end (Hypothetically speaking)

p.s

if i can't have loan, think you should limit the 12 record budget to a grand, that would make it more interesting and give us peasants a chance :D

Well the list I did none are over 300 quid and if you take Jimmy Delphs 15 quid Independent movement 15 quid Mines not a dick swinging list!

Gene Willis /Jimmy Pendleton and Bonnie lee I havnt a clue what they are worth - I bought them because I love them!

Sadly, let the dick swinging contest begin. So how many big records can a person show off in one set.

Nothing to do with dick swinging , just tells you what people would play and what they think people would listen too ! Edited by allnightandy

I wouldn't do the gig, you can't do a good set with 12 tunes.

Some of the gigs i see advertised on here the DJ's only get half an hour

i was limiting it to 12 because if you don't , the lists would get longer and longer and the Dick swinging would begin ! somebody would list his/her whole collection and say "i'll pick my set from these !"

I'm gonna be professional and get to this 'event' early doors so I can hear what everyone else plays first....I'll post a play list in a few days :thumbsup::D

I think this thread starter (allnightandy) means well by this thread and I don't think for one moment he wanted anyone to start putting their 'most expensive' records up. I do understand the comments made ref this being a chance for people to 'show off' though as unfortunately that's the world we live in now ain't it? But this thread could work if treated correctly :yes:

I expect there's also another 'event' like this just down the road clashing on the same night! :rofl:

By the way, where's the nearest train station?

All the best,

Len.

Oh I certainly do ... looking through the lists so far i didn't see any Rock 'n' Roll :huh: I knew it couldn't have been aimed at me 'cos I've never played a R'n'R record in my life

Wow, it's difficult coming up with even just 12 tunes. To save on the brain-ache, I selected from iTunes the tracks on my computer that have been played the most under the genre of 'Soul'. That seems to be the most convincing selection. They are:

12: Beverly Shaffer - Where will you be (One-derful)

11. Marva Whitney - Ball of fire (King)

10. Cam Cameron - They say (Capri)

9. Liz Lands - Midnight Johnny (Gordy)

8. Johnny McCall - I need you (Al-teen)

7. Barbara Mercer - Call on me (Sidra)

6. A possibly unreleased popcorn thing that impresses only me

5. September Jones - I'm coming home (Kapp)

4. San Francisco TKO's - Make up your mind (Kent)

3. Big Maybelle - I got a feelin' (Okeh)

2. Jimmy Robins - I can't please you (who cares what label)

1. The Townsmen - Please don't say goodbye (Columbia)

There you go, no dick swinging, no big hitters, just the tunes that have been played the most through my computer since its count began!

Ok i've just checked my mobile for my most played tracks so i will go with those

Don covey - A little bit hurt

Millie Jackson- House for sale

Howard Tate - Baby i love you

Paulette Parker- (gimmie back) My love

Spiral Starecase- Baby what i mean

Impressions - I'll always be here

Jerry Butler- Moody woman

Della Reese - A clock that's got no hands

Herman Griffin- Are you for me or against me

Fred Hughes- Baby boy

Little Antony - Better use your head

Terry Callier- Ordinary joe

But so far only managed to get 200 on to my phone so lots more to go.

The 'Dick Swinger' comment made me laugh :lol: ....not heard that expression before. (Yes, I probably should get out more!!!)

Still laughing here....'Dick Swingers'.....love it!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway....as the thread author asked..............and in this order.........NOT 'best set' in terms of cost of records (no one would do a set of the most expensive records they owned for the sake of it surely) ........ .........as a dancer I would love this set....that usually means at least a few others will too!!!.

Oh alright....I'd win hands down!!!!!!!!!! :wink:
