Bloody hell Fido, I hope someone has your knackers lopped off. Last heard Casualeers at Carisbrooke hall promotion night last month played by Winstanley. I never hear Gene Woodbury Ever Again (craps on Bernie Williams), at least not in London, does it get played elsewhere? I think I shall start playing it myself. An all time favourite. Also never hear Pamela Beatty Talking Eyes, absolute floor clearer. I love it.

Some soulies don't realise that the Casualeers on Roulette is a rare-ish 45 to own.

The one that brings a smile to my face is :-

Wydner K Frog - Green Door :thumbsup:

Cuddly? :o I'm afraid that I've never really liked it, find it a bit lightweight. I can't remember hearing Gene Woodbury since about 1989 but I do have a very poor memory. If I remember correctly.

[bunny Sigler....Girl dont make me wait.

Always takes me back to 1975 with a BIG smile]

Definitely heard that played recently, but can't remember where, might have been TOS, SITC, probably not the Dome.

Good dance record.

I played the Contemplations at the last 100.

and someone played Rock Candy very lately (only knew it was RC coz i was by the decks and I was in conversation with somepone about no difference between the 2, even RC has the contemplation label number in the run-out. I can remeber all that but cant remember who played it or where I was. Unless it was TOS, could have been Gene maybe. Think I'll get my coat...)

Great topic this one. jump started my memory cells.............

On the subject of Wynder K Frog, does anyone remember the title of an L.P that it was on ?, I can remember, but do you ?.

Other out of favours :

The Nightwatch ... The lips to your heart ... ABC

Dee Edwards ... Loving you is all I wanna do .... Cotilion

Chiffons ... Nobody knows whats going on ...Laurie

Spooky & Sue ... I got the need ... Negram

What price on a Spooky & Sue original nowadays, I've had one since 79, never see it for sale......

The Caualeers is my favourite Wigan record, and if you actually listen to it, rather than dismissing it as a Disco Demand release, it really is a quite stunning piece of male group Soul.

Following on from what Shute said about it being quite hard on Roulette, I know a copy went through Ebay earlier this year for over £200.

Most booked DJ ? Possibly, I have averaged over 50 bookings every year for the last three years, and already have 33 for 2005 in my diary. I probably do the most miles because I don't tend to have bookings concentrated in the West Midlands where I now live, but might be in Scotland one weekend, and Wales the next, then London, then Yorkshire etc etc. Other candidates would have to be Roger Banks, all over the place every weekend, Derek Allen, DJing somewhere near you this weekend if you live in the East or West Midlands, and Carl Willingham, again all over the place but centred in the North West. Mick H, picked up several residencies recently, so they all add to the numbers.

Almost certainly I work the hardest in getting to venues because I don't own a car

Rock Candy "Alone" is the Contemplations. Rock Candy recorded the other side and had nothing to put on the flip so they stuck the Contemplations on there and changed their name to Rock Candy.

Gets played enough in the midlands.

Saxie Russell, Psychedelic Soul is one that makes me smile, and Lilie Bryant, Meet Me Halfway did when I heard it on Saturday.

Nancy Wilson, End of Our Love would do if I heard it played out too!

And was Black Nasty, Cut Your Motor Off such a terrible record that nobody dare speak it's name anymore?

I allways remember this off the Jumping at the Go Go Lp I had when I was about 18 or 19 , actually knew all the words to it but struggling to remember them now.

" Its like sitting in an oven after turning on the gas , and then lighting up a cigarette just how long can I last"

Brilliant! :thumbsup:

Absolutely, mate!

Just dusted off that very LP and given it a spin :thumbup:

Think I will try to get it played somewhere this weekend, perhaps Samanthas if I make it there.

Would be rather appropriate as the sleeve notes say it was discovered by Dave Godin.

Respect.

Wyder K Frog Ive got the LP, got it from a second hand shop in grimsby for a pound, must be 25 years ago, Its on United Artists but there no track listing on the lable, were they all like that??? whistling.gif

Wynder K Frog did a wicked version of the Spencer Davis thing; "I'm a man". Used to be a Wheel spin, as of course did "Green Door".

Searling was the first DJ I heard playing Landslide (Va Va 73). Suspect that Levine had it earlier though.

I've always loved the Casualeers track. Made a huge an immediate impact when it first hit the scene. Just like "Rhino", it was no grower - instantly massive.

Ooooh - that's an idea for another thread perhaps? Instantly massive records? Which one went biggest fastest?

I don't get around much, but you don't often hear any Doctor Buzzard, do you?

Were those the campest tracks ever played on the scene?

That prompts me to mention a couple of other Mecca faves I haven't heard in yonks:

Pierre Hunt - Got to have all your love

Look lets make love (Crikey, minds gone blank - who did that? -Sydney Someone?)

Also recall an album track by SSO (?) "Can't say no" (?)

All sounded good at the time, possibly considered crap disco now.

Funny you should say that Craig, but the only time I took my wife to Blackpool Mecca, it must have been Dr. Buzzard week coz Queen Levine was spinning 3 tracks all bloody night. She loved 'em and made me buy the album. I'm proud to say that, whilst it is still in my collection, it has not been played in almost 30 years. Long may it stay that way!
