Velvet Hammer-Happy Boots?


Recommended Posts

Posted

I know what you mean but it's records like Velvet Hammer that played their part in making the northern/rare soul scene the greatest popular culture scene , and  still   the greatest popular culture scene there is anywhere today, and it's still   very much an underground scene despite what a number of the older heads have recently been saying on here about the "future" of the "scene".

I didn't say it didnt, I was merely comparing it to the out and out Northern Soul tracks such as the 'Frankie Beverleys and Eddie Parker' style records, saying that it wasn't in that style of music.

I 100% agree what you are saying and know this too as I have loved the music for over 40 years, and visited some of the best club going in that time, including the Torch, VaVas, Samantha's, Casino and the place that I think Velvet Hammer was first played Blackpool Mecca. Someone will correct me if I am wrong there.

Tunes like this HAVE as you say helped make the scene what it is today, and who knows what the future of the scene is, not you or I or anyone for that matter, it will happen as it happens and we'll have to wait and see,

Remember it well Tim - I remember swapping a really nice DJ record box for a cassette of about 12 top sounds with two guys from telford who used to go the Laf (one was called Span I think)

Soul bowl sold the pink ones

What I remember is that the multi colour copies were around and then all of a sudden soul bowl had loads of (brand new) copies of the plain colour label at a much reduced price.  I remember these all had crackle over the intro, obviously a pressing fault.

At about the same time (about 1980/81?) there were some other (what was then considered) "modern" 45s which suddenly appeared in quantity at much reduced prices, and I've always suspected that these had been newly pressed up.  As some of these are still circulating for big money, best to let sleeping dogs lie in my opinion.

This is exactly how I remember it.

Bit late to this but no-one mentions the dark blue/silver script Suomi label issue that I got from S Bowl. I know I had it, sold it to Rob Wigley in 93 "I think
