Argie And The Arketts

You're The Guy...When was this first played at a Northern event? Wonderful record and very atmospheric but it seems a bit slow for mid-70s tastes but I guess not everything was a full-blown stomper then.

Wigan, late 70s, very briefly - about the same time as Gloria and the T-Aira's "I'm Satisfied"

Have Gloria on Wigan tape June 77

Only time I ever heard it

 

I remember someone nicked some records from Dave Withers' stall on Bury market and I have a feeling that both of those records were among them. That's probably why I remember that they were around at the same time.

I got this in a soul pack, I think from Soul Bowl or maybe Black Grape, and always liked this side and used to put it on tape swaps. But as is so often the case with changing tastes, give the flip side a listen "Hey Baby" - really nice track and one that I do think could get played out too.

Sadly I can't help with dating it or linking it to who played it, but if it was one of those Soul packs I think I went for them in the early 80's rather than some of the different suppliers in the mid/late 70s when I tended to get more pressings in the packs.

Pretty much every soul 45 seller at shows over here has it in their boxes and they never seem to shift as they're all trying to get $75-$100 still, nice little record but over-priced given the quantity around.

Beat me to it JW - I was going to mention that I had heard you play it around '79.

Hi Rich  Now have a copy again and played it at Skegness last April still sound great.

I have it down as an Ian Clark spin so that would make it 82/83 at Stafford, he could have been playing it earlier?

Hiya Chalky, you maybe right, cos Dean Anderson covered Shirley Edwards up as Argie & the Arkettes & that must have been in the mid 80s (IMHO)

Definitely Yate for me, had a tape from either Ian Clark or Adey Pountain with it on and bought one around that time. Long gone now but would like to get it back.
