The Casino Years - 1973 To 1975 Part 3 (New Episode)

Recommended Posts

1973 — 1975 Part 3

 

Well after last weekend’s mega-session, it turned out that all though my 10 hours worth of podcasts were pretty representative of “The Wigan Years”, because my criteria was to play them off vinyl, this means loads of great records had to be missed out.  So to put that right, there are now going to be four or five supplementary podcasts containing the best (and worst) of the missing 45’s.  Just to remind: the rules where that the track had to be known BY ME from Wigan; whether it was first discovered at The Cats, The Torch, The Mecca, Va Va’s, Cleethorpes — irrelevant — they either had to be on my Wigan live tapes or I had to have heard them played there.  They were also in a pretty strict chronological order too, but this latest batch aren’t — they just cover two years but aren’t what was played month by month.

I was still in school when I started going to the casino in the late 70s with the older lads ( Mr Smith above being one of them ) A few of the songs from the early year podcasts were being played in Mr Ms as oldies when I went there , its amazing how many tunes you forget that you know until you hear them again ,  thanks for sharing ....Ste

As ever some quality tracks on this list, this is the period when I was becoming very aware of northern soul though older lad`s at school  and on my estate who were going to Wigan. The start of a very long journey which has lasted for me at least 40 years. the same could be said for a lot of us on soul source long may this continue.
