Across The Board Poll - I'm Going All The Way  

  1. 1. This sound is quite acceptable

    • Yes
      68
    • No
      12


Recommended Posts

The night is billed as Northern Soul - Across The Board.

The DJ spins The Sounds Of Blackness - I'm Going All The Way.

Is it acceptable?

Are we either a 'broad minded church' or a 'narrow minded tribe'?

Just a bit of fun......

Col.

some promoters who bill their night as across the board haven't a clue, they think across the board extends only as far as Drizabone or Angie Stone :rolleyes:

hasn't this been done before :thumbsup:

Possibly. But couldn't resist it.

Picked up the CD 'The Collection' by Sounds Of Blackness in HMV for £4 on saturday.

Thought it would be good to share it with everyone.

Funny one this, most of the tunes listed go well at our charity soul nights frequented by "normal" punters, when played at our Northern nights, Coppertops, they invariably clear the floor.

Not my usual cuppa but really liked that. Would sooner hear a few like that than say, Because of You yet again! :rolleyes:

Drizabone have been mentioned... there's a couple of better tracks than Pressure (much as I like it) on the Conspiracy album IMHO! :huh:

I'm Going all The Way was Huge as a new release at PITCHES, Rotherham.

I just cant fathom (and never have been able to) why the Northern scene often needs to have a 10 - 15 year incubation period before it can accept a Soul track (see the Al Mason thread - i.e. only just acceptable now!).

Tragic... but you've heard my rant on this subject before!

Across The Board... was a phrase first used at PITCHES to mean just that.

Soul Music... Across the board... all eras, all tempo's for all tastes!

I agree Sean but it hasn't always been this way. New releases got played at Wigan all the time e.g. N.F. Porter - Keep on keeping on, and at Stafford too, Atlantic Star, Jeffrey Osbourne etc..

Maybe it's just a recent thing.

=================================================================

Too right!

Couple to add:

I Believe

Everything Is Gonna Be Alright

All should be able toi be had for less than a fiver -

Can't fail with them! From the ' From Africa to America ' LP I think!

The period of late 80s to mid 90s - Esp. from the UK saw IMO some great music - Affair / Paul Johnson / etc etc Labels such as Boogie Back etc. Across the board indeed.

Great Modern Tune.

Fits the across the board tag and well worth a play to the open minded.

Agree Matt that 'some' tracks have been played as new releases (I've made a bit of a career of it myself) and infact the Northern scene was founded on records that were either new or only 4-5 years old, but that's why I stated that the scene 'often needs to have' rather than 'always'needs to have'.

Sadly, though, I think you'll agree, its more often than not that Soul Music itself is way ahead of the 'Northern' Soul scene's ability to absorb it.

There are dozens of tracks that should have been played when new, snubbed at the time, only to be later 'discovered' or deemed acceptable many years later.

Good to see the above track getting the thumbs up though in the poll, if only belatedly.

But dont ya' all just wonder what tracks came out in the last 12 - 18 months... that the Northern Scene should have played... rather than waiting until 2010.

If I went to a venue advertised as "across the board" I would expect and hope to hear music from 60s R&B through to contempory dance tunes, after all irrespective of year of issue they are all branches of the same tree and....it's still growing :yes:

S o B gets a thumbs up and it's a yes from me.

across the board means i'm expecting to hear a few decades of quality soul music - 1960 to 2006 and beyond, in't nothing wrong with that !

I went to the Without Boundaries Summer Ball on saturday and that was a fantastic array of good quality tunes spanning afew decades and stuff due out in the near future- most people got up and stayed up dancing.. a few sat down when the different DJ's came on ...but it is a free world, each to their own. I went home with sore feet so i was happy enough !
