I love them too but any more than 3 in a row and I'd go nuts.

My all time favourites are:

bari track

frantic escape

exus trek

the champion

don't pretend (version with the strings)

Hi Mark

I would go for some of those Motown / Funk Brothers tracks, the ones I play out at the moment are 'Shake Me Wake Me' & 'This Old Heart Of Mine'.

I have also been asked recently about doing a Detroit ONLY nighter! Any thoughts on that? Anyone?

Cheers

Paddy

what would i put on? the best pair of ear defenders i could find, and then a deep sea divers helmet filled with noise-retarding foam.

soul's about the vocals.

PS let's not have another one of those, bari track is the greatest northern soul record ever, discussions everyone...just my opinion.)

A full nite of instrumentals sounds like a really bad idea an hour would be bad inuf,but if you were to do it russ could play all those shitty soussan made up discs,and you would have to have john vincent on.The detroit niter has already been done at sheridans.Imho of course wiganer blush.gif

At the risk of being shot down in flames quicker than Flight 93 I must admit to having something of a soft spot for Beachcomber. I don't necessarily think it has a place on the Northern Soul scene anymore and I'm not advocating that anybody play the thing in a nightclub, but as a piece of eccentric early 60s grooviness it's a good sound. Perfect for a cocktail party, I'd have thought.

The idea of an instrumental allnighter is an amusing one, but seems doomed to failure.

I'm a bit pissed off that Dan and In Town Mikey beat me to it with their replies of "Ear muffs" ! Aint you lads got work to do?

Andy D - that Frank Foster is one helluva beast of a tune. Also recall Guy DJing at a Manchester Ritz allnighter (circa mid 90s) opening with "Michigan Move" - I was seen cartwheeling across the dance floor, perspiring heavily whilst grinning stupidly. Mmm good job video mobile phones weren't invented then eh or else I'd have been on youtube by now.

All night instrumentals - just say no - so far we've had less than an hours worth flagged up.

Rose Batiste sure kicks bottom in our house.

onwards, derek

The Detroit thing did'nt really work either, good idea but themed nights can sometimes not catch the imagination, i'm with Andy on this one i think a whole night of instrumentals would be a disaster, think about it most of them are uptempo so imagine the state of the dance floor within twenty minutes....lol Although i still love 'Rat Race', 'Thumd A Ride' Duke Browner Inst etc. and no harm in the odd spin but not allnight.......oh almost forgot 'Interplay'.....lol

Soulful Strut - Young Holt

Bok To Bach - Fathers Angels

Festival Time - San Remo

Out To Lunch - Poets

Six By Six - Earl Van Dyke

California Montage - Young Holt

Wade In The Water - Ramsey Lewis

Time Is Tight - Booker T & MG's

Are the only 'Soul Instrumentals' I could ever even tolerate. But even those would be a bit monotonous all night long!

The more I think about it and the more I listen to these instrumentals the more I think it's not that bad an idea. Perhaps not an Allnighter but certainly 8 til 2. Has it ever been done before?

A record I've kept going back to over the last few years is The Music Makers instrumental version of The Intruders "United" on Gamble. An organ-led version which is to my ears far better than the vocal.

Good call Garethx

The Music Maker's were an embryonic MFSB.

Vince Montana

Bobby Eli

Ron Baker

Earl Young

Norman Harris

They were also responsible ('though not credited) for creating "The Horse"-Cliff Nobles.

As for "United" being better than The Intruders? Maybe for dancing .......oh don't get me started on The Intruders!
:yes::P

And there are eight hours worth of 'northern instrumentals' are there? Or were you speaking hypothetically? :yes:

What is it with you lot, can you not read? And stop going on and on about there not being enough instrumentals to fill 8 hours!!! And how it would drive you crazy not to hear a human voice on a slab of vinyl for more than an hour or so. Jazz fans do it all the time don't they? And there's a load of so-called Jazz fans out there amongst us R&B / Soul / Northern / Modern fans; at least that's what I keep hearing?

Anyhow, I asked earlier, "has it ever been done" from say 8 or 9pm to 1 or 2am? That's about 5 hours? Well, has it?

Surely, there are enough quality R&B / Soul / Northern Soul / Mod instrumentals to fill 5 hours very adequately? Don't ya'll think???

? jazz is predominately instrumental. northern soul isnt. and to answer your question - no i dont think its been done to fill 5 hours; yes and there maybe enough to do that but i for one wouldnt be there to listen to it.

True, but I happen to think it could work. But of course I am biased, I love instrumentals, as well as my R&B / Soul / Northern / Popcorn VOCALS.

On top of that, I'm posting from my favourite Pub in Stavanger, Norway, where I'm bored out of my skull and I've had a couple of N¸gne IPA's, a really strong Real Ale in a bottle from a Micro Brewery in Grimstad over toward Oslo. :P

Not long to go now. I'm back home for Easter on Thursday and I've got some nice venues and friends to meet lined up for at least Friday and Saturday night. Can't wait!!!
