Recommended Posts

On the Chris Evans show this morning on Radio 2 at 7.15, the This Day In History segment presented by Kate Humble featuring the details about the Frank Wilson auction and what it raised. Nice to see Motown featured once again on Radio 2.

Does something like this really excite people? There's Motown and northern on radio everyday. It's on many tv shows as well.

Fair comment but my point was (and it ain't a dig) is that there are plenty of soul and northern soul lovers who work in advertising, TV and radio, this is now practically an every day occurrence, you only have to watch coronation street for a mention or a record getting played then wait till the next morning for another topic about it.

I think it does in some circumstances.  I was in the co-op yesterday and from nowhere, Road Runner by Jr Walker blasted out on the Co-Op radio, a record I've heard a million times but it sounded utterly fantastic in that setting, an unexpected slice of classic Motown while on a cider buying mission, perfect...

I only go to TK Maxx to hear what music they've got on in the shop.

I think the original point was not so much that it got played, but that the feature was about the auction and how much money it went for.

 

I would guess that any listener, not just a northern soul collector, would find a £25k price tag for a 7" single (and the various reasons behind it) rather fascinating and exciting.

 

... possibly also a sense of bewilderment, and in some cases thoughts of 'you luck bugger' towards the seller of the record!

to be fair i got silly excited at the local pub. they have that secret dj thing whereby people choose the tunes via an app. the app has its own limited playlists, and if no one selects anything it plays its own playlists. on a number of occasions ive heard exits- got to have money - now that was a surprise!

I agree to a point but some researcher at radio two will be into northern and will have fed him this info. It's not as though this record has escaped media attention in the past with Kenny even appearing on TV with it if I remember rightly.

Mucker, to me you're sounding a bit like the great handbagging unwashed, know about and tolerate NS.

 

I think in all honesty the majority of non hard core fans know dick.

 

I think Seagrave has nailed it.

I understand that Ian, but everyone on this site knows all about it. That's why I asked do we seriously get excited about the mere mention of a northern soul record to start a topic about it.

Indeed. Though this was no mere mention. This was a segment! And on Radio 2 as well. I would feel more the way you do if it had of been Solar 0129..

Of course, if we (and promoters!) stuck to the principle of 'original vinyl only' venues, very few of us would think it was overplayed.

 

Similarly, we wouldn't fear hearing it out too often in the future either. Come to think of it (and this applies to a lot of other rare but bootlegged records too), we might even look forward to it ...

Thought it was a Wedneday ?

Sure it was cos I used to go to the Mecca and on this occasion I gave it a miss and stopped in cos I knew it was gonna be that exciting ...

And trust me ,there's nothing much that will keep me from going to Bingo !

I only go to TK Maxx to hear what music they've got on in the shop.

Been in Boston, Lincs quite a bit this year and use the wifi in Cafe Nero. Of all places to hear it, it was the best selection of modern day jazz and Latin ive heard, I started Shazaming while drinking my coffee and every visit was discovering loads of US and Italian jazz from people I'd never heard of on labels i'd never heard of. Are they all like this, never usually go in.

of course you're right nev about wednesday, the story didn't run in the national papers til friday morning though, i remember picking up copies of the sun & mirror from a petrol station in littleborough and reading about it, im sure they even put a pic of dustbin in just to commercialise it.
