Mark,

it was immense! About the same time as The Brothers-Are You Ready For This, another monster instrumental at that time was Hamilton Bohannon - Foot Stomping Music - never heard it since I dont think.

Just had a thought mate - i think Cochise was a bigger stomper instrumental bit before the Champion!!!!!!

Obvious which one has stood the test of time though.

Mark,

You are correct. It was massive. People used to clap at the obvious places, but also stamp their feet to it as they danced. Just right for Wigan.

Champion was always my favourite record from 75 to about 78...still get a shiver when I hear it. But Alan, I'm amazed at what you just said because I was in the car yesterday and this track came on and I thought "that would have been perfect back then" and I just couldn't place it until right at the end when the chorus sang "foot, foot stomping music"...absolutely brilliant and needs reactivating!

Agreed on that Pete. Funny thing is i'm surprised how few copies of the Hamilton Bohannon turn up in old Wigan collections, or perhaps i've just passed them by? Do remember the whole place shaking to these tunes back then - happy days!!

And not forgetting- Condition red - Baltimore & Ohio marching band

Got myself a nice Demo recently and played it at Winsford last Saturday night to a good dance floor reaction.

Yes we heard it Steve, also someone played a Willie Mitchell tune very similar to the Champion, but I didn't catch the title, do you know what it was? ranting_1.gif

"That Driving Beat" is pretty awesome too, IMHO.

Aternooon of the Rhino was huge at Wigan and the clapping was amazing, the Champion was also a great floor filler and still sounds good today

My personal fave ever is Stick By Me Baby, The Salavadors, awsome dance record and unfortunately, stupidly rare!

I read in The New Breed magazine some time ago that The Champion and other Willie Mitchell tunes like Secret Home,That Driving beat,

20-75, Everything is gonna be alright, were tunes played by Roger Eagle at the Brazenose St. Twisted Wheel.

Never came out on USA HI did it. Was off a 6 track or LP. Which makes the finding of it to play in the first place a f'ing miracle. So the UK release on London makes it unique in the 45 collecting world. 1976 release or thereabouts. A uk collector mate got this on a Belgium picture cover release which was also from the same time. So the question must be how on earth did it get a foreign release. For their popcorn scene? Anyway, i love it, but is any Dj likely to play it nowadays. I get the impression that instrumentals don't get much action nowadays.

Well it charted in 76, top 50 only, so they'd have gone ahead with the release overseas - same as Chubby Checker - Just Don't Know, made the lower reaches of the charts on reissue so came out in Spain on London. This is a bit like Out On The Floor by Dobie Gray, when it was issued by Black Magic it did so well that it was released in the States on a label called Thunderbird, then people started thinking that it was a 60's local label issue! Also Harold melvin - Get Out, issued on Phil LA of Soul to try and match it's UK success in 75.

Mercy by Willie Mitchell was a favourite at Goodfoot. I and at least one other Glasgow DJ play his version of Wllie Dixon's My Babe and I still Love The Champion and That Driving Beat.

i must dig out my Hamilton Bohannon singles.

Quality old Wigan tune Matt, remember getting this on an acetate when it was big. Got a re-issue for sale if you want one?
