Poke Ruined My Life

it's cleethorpes, poke's dj'ing, he plays a record, cover-up, HE says it's Tony & Raymond (or Tony Raymonds) "We're gonna make it baby". not too many danced to it, as the months go by it got some respect, half filling the floor, later still, clifton hall, says to poke, 'ere £175 for that cover up (thinkin' he'd sell as he probably only slipped john anderson a couple of quid for it, i think poke worked for john at that point) he said "Nah". years later, after poke had sold his records i said "what was that record?" poke said "Buggered if i can remember"

My life has been ruined ever since that day, even if i can never get a copy would dearly love to know what the f**ckin' thing was really called and who it was really by. anyone have even half a bloody clue which sound i'm on about? or was it all a monster of my mind, preceeding from a speed opressed brain?

Help me obe 1 kanobi, you're my only hope!!!

Hugh Boynton - We're gonna make it - Soul-Po-Tion

Original is blue label and it was used to dub the re-issue off, but with a yellow label.

Robin S on here will be able to give you full history of the track

Hi Simon,

Yes I sure can!

I got Poke's copy when he sold a load of stuff. (Through Rich Broughton - Nottm)

Yes it was Hugh Boynton - i paid £80. I also got the Charisma Band for £5 before any real exposure on the Modern/Northern scenes.

Fantastic record - and yes Coops I first heard and fell in love with it at Cleethorpes.

I played it heavily at Stafford and various Venues I Djed at mid 80's.

Before I sold it to Graeme Ellis I was asked by Gary Cape if he could borrow it to do a legit repress. Jesse Boone had not got the master anymore. These were on yellow label (Still got my complimentary copy!) People try to sell these as originals but the original is a dark blue. Any other proper originajs turned up over the years?

# Me too, still got a tape of Poke playing it at Cleethorpes.

# you playing it at Stafford too, happy days!

# Never heard of another copy ever turning up. Didn't most of Graeme's stuff go to Japan via Norfolk?

Yup, Early days yet - first BIG test Sunday lunchtime with the arrival of L**DS at Chez Selhurst. We usually misfire on lunchtime kick offs, but hey 6 points in the bag at this point is better than three. I am sure Leicester will be fine once they get started.
