Cleggy/clifton/mecca 70S Stompers

Posted

This thread may sink or swim but i just love talking about my records and other peoples records.So here is the concept i'm looking for

1/ All records from your own collections and all original UK or US releases

2/ 10 choices of records

3/ UPTEMPO BLACKPOOL MECCA/CLEETHORPES/CLIFTON HALL SOUNDS

70s stompers seem to be resented by the oldies crowd but were a major part of the scene at all the legendary venues.They were difficult to dance to and took skill and youthfull energy maybe why they are passed over nowadays as we all nurse our bad backs and knackered knees.But you dont see many of the young uns dancing to them either.Its almost as if they are being rubbed out of the present soul night scene.So lets see your record lists of your fave shufflers and 7os stompers

Lets have no infighting about what sounds were played where first,generally looking for the tracks in your collections that are associated with these venues.The records you select can be well known or underplayed,common or scarce,big money or cheepies.They must be its up to you as long as you own em.So 20 records to pick which represent a great of the Northern scene should be interesting if anyone still likes talking about records anymore we will see.I will kick off the proceedings with my offerings. All mine are well known and were massive plays back in the day

In terms of timescales you are being very broad - Mecca through to the early 80's, yet very specific and prescriptive in terms of venues. Just for clarity you are referring to Cleethorpes era 1 (Mary Chapman) and era 2 (Steve Croft) in terms of niters and time scales?

You have posted some decent tunes to get things started.

Deliberately kept it broad to get responses and set off with well known tunes for the same reason.Don't want to get bogged down with dogmatic stuff just looking for the uptempo 70s records that seem to be underthreat of being excluded from soul nights.But basically talking about Late Wigan/Mecca/Cleethorpes Winter Gardens stuff that went on to be played at Clifton Hall,so 1977-85 ish period.If you own it post it and lets be reminded of the high speed feet shuffellers

When the word 'stomper' was originally coined, it referred to tunes with a powerful, prominent and comparatively crude beat as typified by the Jewels, 'We Got Togetherness' and Hollywood Persuaders 'Hollywood A-Go-Go'. How we end up categorizing the Marvin Holmes and Four Below Zero records listed above in the same bracket mystifies me.

Not trying to ruin the thread - just a frequent puzzlement...

As You say the word stomper was originally tagged to the 100mph pounding oldies.But later the term was used to describe a style of dancing, a sort of fast feet shuffell done to records of the right tempo and frequently seen performed to the 70s sounds in my first post.

My point on this is that if you go to a northern Soul night you don't hear many of these 70s sounds as they are getting pushed aside in favour of 60s classics and R&B.I love my oldies but also love to hear a cross section of tunes that i equally remember from my early days late 70s early 80s.Some more examples from my Box.

My theory on why the Oldies brigade dont play them>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

They werent there in the first place to hear them in a lot of cases :shhh: despite the fact they will all tell you "that aint real Northern" if by chance they might hear one :wicked: , or they were all considered as "mecca shite" and banished from the true"northern scene" aflter the big split in the late 70s ...........DESPITE the fact they had previously been hugely popular at Cleethorpes St ives etc etc :yes:

I decided to do a mix of 70's shufflers/stompers to go with this thread.

Loads more I could have put on but these are pretty much representative of the mid-late 70's.

Personally I'd love to hear some of these played out more although perhaps not Babe Ruth!

Maybe I'll do a pt2 if there's enough interest?

Here's the tracks:

Al Foster Band - Night of the wolf (Roulette)

James Bynum - Time passes by (Philly City)

Willie Brown - Get out & get it (Tri-It)

Nate Evans - This time with feeling (DPR)

Jimmy Mack - A woman is hard to understand (Hamster)

Stanley Woodruff - What took you so long (Juldane)

Frankie Loveman Crocker - Ton of dynamite (Turbo)

Diane Jenkins - I need you (Creative Funk)

The Crow - Your Autumn of tomorrow (Inner Ear)

Flaming Emeralds - Have some everybody (Fee)

Sandra Richardson - Stay here with me (inter-Soul)

Norma Jenkins - Can you imagine that (Desert Moon)

Black Nasty - cut your motor off (Big Hit)

Johnny Williams - Something kind of mellow (Babylon)

Babe Ruth - Elusive (Capitol)

Lou Edwards & Todays people - Talking 'bout my folks (Columbia)

Jobellk & Orch de salsa - Never gonna let you go (Jan)

8th Avenue Band - The whole thing (Columbia)

Steve Marshall - Maintain (Reynolds)

Seventh Wonder - Captain of my ship (WG)

Earth Wind & Fire - Biyo (CBS)

Liberty - Girl you better wake up (BASF)

I made the point that the Word Stomping was also used to describe a style of Dancing to pounding uptempo Soul,i'm not trying to redefine anything to suit my preferences just stating how things were for me.I'm sure most people my age will be familiar with seeing this style of Dancing performed to records like The Champion,So Is The Sun,Psychadelic Soul,etc.Later on the style was modified with a bit more footwork and used to dance to the 70s uptempo numbers already highlighted in the thread.These uptempo 70s records in my opinion have just as much relevence on the Northern Soul Scene as say The Jewels.Why pigeon hole the word stomper surely there can be 60s stompers and 70s stompers Not got a clue what your Fat old bald men comment is about but i know many who would still love to be able to Stomp like they used to to at Clfton Hall to Janice.All i wanted to do mate was talk about RECORDS and the fact that at a lot of soul nights nowadays the 70s danceable stuff is overlooked and its a shame.I would love to hear the odd few thrown in to playlists just to remind us of how good some of em still sound out loud
