YO HOOOO!!x I hope you all had a fantastic day....I have!x As promised....the link to the full documentary made at Kings Hall in 2003 is now available forever.....FOR FREE!!!!x The version I have uploaded is the one put out on DVD last year to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of it's making! In the past 11 years over 2000 Soulies Nationwide have happily paid £10-15 for a VHS or DVD copy of the very same! A timeless ''product' too really....but no longer a cash generator....for anyone....just a Soulful resonator......which I like....X A gift....for Xmas....and hopefully is archived in the memorabilia the scene has gathered over its lifetime!x A labour of love originally for me.....and fitting to go out to all....for free...ENJOY!x

Finally after almost 12 years we get to see it.

 

I would have liked some footage from the Modern Room, but it wasn't to be.

Like you said it was bloody dark up there. :)

DAAAAAAAVEEEEEE!!!!!!x Wot a tite ar*e not finding a tenner in 12 years........hehe!!!x That reaction you have given means 'job done'!x I made it for pleasure....mine...and everyone's! No money/business or owt.....and it was only after we got back and reviewed what we'd got that we realised.......we had the lot!x The reason I focused on your holiday is because you had travelled the furthest to be there.....!!!x ZEA.....a brown 70's label?! Had that copy and have the Canterbury......the Soul Town version I had but got rid as t was poor quality for DJing with I recall?!x Dave...in 12 years....YOU mate....are the first to ever mention the Zea copy...the 3rd......yet thousands have watched it! You my friend...have been worth waiting for.....as is the film for you!!!! Job done!x

 

Stewmac...what happened to it was I edited it....showed it to Kev Roberts a few weeks after the night....he was gobsmacked as he'd only known me as a DJ/Promoter before then.....ordered 1000 copies from me....which was nice as it paid for a new camera for our then fledgling media firm! I delivered the 1000 copies.....he asked for another 300 a few weeks later.....couldn't do as the firm i'd used to duplicate to get the price to make it viable wouldn't do less than 500 at a time......and so that was that......and the master copy I made went into a box of VHS tapes featuring bits and bobs from all over the place......and sat for 10 years!!!x In 2005....I was up t'norf and popped into a gig.....walked around and saw for the first time a bootlegged DVD of it....for a £10!!!!! I asked the guy what it was about....he waffled....I bought it......absolute sh*te production/copy and poor picture quality! He had said as a sales ploy....'sold about 30 copys 'ere tonight so it's a good un'.....! He'd obviously not seen it....granted the room was dark....I had a limo outside causing a buzz around the room.....but other than that....I fink I was recognizable....if he'd have watched it!!!!x That's all I knew until last year when making an album featuring 'mixes' using some Northern Tracks that we wondered how to get them out there to 'hard core' as a sign of respect before their commercial release!! I remembered the film....and it was 10 years since making it....an anniversary of sorts....so put it on DVD 'officially' for the first time proper done with free new tunes at the end....and put em thru here.....and all were happy!x We sold our album....thousands have watched the film.....then the Northern Soul film comes out.....buzz buzz....and I think....yeah......meat for the bone........'ave it!x It was made as a 'labour of love' and indeed have never seen it as a 'earner'......so to put it on line....for all...forever.....epitomises what it was about......TOGETHERNESS. I don't do rhetoric......folk Nationwide will confirm!x

I'm having a Xmas Day with my Grandson who is a talking 2 and a bit now and will take a clip round the lug hole n stuff.....so looking forward to it.....built him a huuuuge train in me front room with lights....coal truck full of pressys........and once that has all gone off....am away for around 2 weeks I think!x I won't be able to get on line and so take this opportunity to say THANK YOU ALL for your sincere friendship and comradery offered over the years. No...I weren't 'there' back in the day....and was a 'latecomer'......but the majority took me in as their own....which is my lasting memory of the scene and will always be. With this film....I feel as though I have given back to the scene that gave me.....what I needed at the time...a feel good factor. I got it......invested it into other paths of life....and hopefully leave behind a legacy that the scene left with me.......a 'happy' one....X I hope that happiness continues into the New Year for all.....and yes.....I would like to think I can invest chill out time at an occasional function myself in 2015!!!!x It will be fitting.....a 40th Anniversary since I danced to The Champion and You're Ready Now...Better Use Your Head....Netherhall Youth Club....1975.......remember it as if yesterday........and still get excited at that prospect all these years later!!!x Happy New Year all.....X

The above 'logo' used in the film was made from the guys T-shirt.....stood outside the hall at the beginning (2.53)....proud of that..!x

 

EDIT>>>>>Besides being tight ar*es the lot of u.......you are appreciative too.....!x The film sold/gave away around 2000 copys over 11 years. I have just checked the stats for the views since placing the link on my FB and in a few forums on Xmas day.......and I am gobsmacked as Kev was originally........1483 complete watches....only 4 'bum outs' who lasted a few minutes!! BRILLIANT.....and I knew it was right to do....X

Still tite ar*es tho'.....hehe...!x One day Rodders.....we'll be millionaaaaires....! Yeah when u stop giving our best stuff away to ure mates we will dipstick.......sigh!x

Thanks for that i enjoyed watching it,nice gesture to put it out in full :thumbsup:  .Some great interviews and a good insight to the scene as it was 10 years ago.I missed that night but went to every other one that year and for me that was the best time at the Kings Hall.

 

Honestly at the time if you had asked me the question i would have answered with all three labels.I owned all three,but the only one i own now is the Soultown issue.I always thought The New Younghearts sounded crisper,and with more punch,and looks Beautiful.

 

Happy New year to you

Patto

Stats above for Sunday's downloads/watches of the Togetherness Doc!x Soul Source peaked last Saturday 27th with 512 downloads in 1 day! That has now steadied to an average of 80 ish a day! On Saturday I went searching for Northern Forums on FB......NIGHTMARE!!!!! Hundreds of 'em!!!x I placed the link in several....it went ballistic.....but it wos laborious! The FB and 'unknown' figures come from FB links i placed! On Sunday.....amazingly....a new account opened up to attract/co-ordinate ALL FB NS/Scooter groups..........and over 200 have piled in so far.........a 'come to Daddy' moment......!!!!! So today I am sitting in that group and going down the list and giving em the film.......job done!!!!!x To date since Xmas day......5743 full watches have occurred with a total of 8,000+ clicked play....for a quick browse! 'Quality' stuff methinks and hopes it helps you promoters/venue owners to see the value of Soul Source and its potential as an advertising 'vehicle'!x I would pay to use it....if I was flogging summink....my survey suggests!x Thank you all for the kind comments left in forums Nationwide and yup.....many 'old faces' are popping outta the FBwork....which has been fantastic!!!x

Figures are interesting stuff, and the vid seems to have gone down well Sooty

Though as been going since xmas day ask can you wind down using this thread now

 

There is the video feature here - which is aimed as acting a reference/archive so you may wanna add it 

(adding is just a 5 second affair)

https://www.soul-source.co.uk/videos/

 

better if you do it rather than site so  your the point of contact for any comments/qs etc

 

cheers

Nice 1 Mike and thanx for the pointer!x It has gone down well mate......over 20 have come forward as featuring in the film and never seeing it....which is brilliant!x The feedback is what it deserves.....a sincere simple film with no 'objective'.......as it is!x The DJ's give a super account of themselves and the scene.....and 'the people'....in my 10 year intense association....and knowing 'Soulies' for 40 years.....then again....they represent 'the people' as is. It wasn't important to me as such....it sat for 10 years.....along with over 30 other 'quality' productions of various interests.,.......all 'done and finished' with....for me! I am glad I have done what I have......I knew it was a cash generator too.....if I wanted it like that.....but never have. In essence......I have stayed true to my principals applied to the scene throughout my association with it.......never been 'business'....always pleasure. There ain;t 1 DJ...promoter or Mogul who can tell u different. Proud of that.....and yes....I believe that attitude has been captured in the film! A unique 'product' in every sense!x

 

I couldn't take it serious on the night......I only went to 'chill' as I was in the middle of sorting out a high ranking peedo ring back 'ome! The bu**ers din;t leave hassling me out of bringing em to account as they smashed me window to get me phone whilst I was in the venue chatting to DJ's! Amazing eh...? Me.....just getting away from it all.............where else could I have gone....and felt safe??? THANK YOU ALL....even tho' u never knew....X You were the only 'family' I had. Folk wonder wtf I was about for those 10 years? Just a Soul brother..........end of. A rarer commodity than most vinyl....I have figured..........X
