All i can say is WOW thats what i call a podcast.I frequented a few of the 90s venues Keele,Bretby,Blackburn,Griffin,first Stoke Togetherness,Trentham Gardens,Manchester Ritz,and they were great times when the scary corner people were still around.Even the soul nights were top notch back then with Hollingwood,Tony Banks Brighouse,Early Prestwich,Earl of Donny all great nights.This podcast of fantastic tunes captures that time period and i remember hearing many of them and most not since back then.

Thanks Martyn its a TEN from Patto

p.s....'scary corner'?? It was where all the anoraks and saddo's gathered and huddled when we piled in....TO PAAAARTYYYYYY!!!!x....din't come near me just whispered at the back and I heard nowt. Patto wos there to witness it I read....hehe!!!x

I have remembered another 3 that perhaps are 'obvious' now but weren't back then!!! I was very fortunate to have some 'hard core' around me who knew the craic from the 70's to the early 90's. I was told by these folk that Hopes N Dreams had been spun mainly the instrumental back in the day but no real National exposure. Same with Joy Lovejoy...In Orbit.....IT WAS MASSVE for me Nationwide and it was a year or so before others started spinning it at the then National venues. Standard today! Another 'newbie' Seven Day Fool Etta James......GUARANTEEED floor packer yet many round the Country had never heard it before the 90's!! Man O Man Walter & The admirations I remember having to kick off with it at Bretby as folk had waited all night for me to spin it......I weren't on till 7am last hour.........heeeeeavy night for all I recall...hehe!!!x

But this was perhaps me fav revival tune I played that hadn't been 'aired' for some years...if at all as it deserved...and took it Nationwide!x

 

SUPER tune to start a Monday morning....or a spot around the Nation........proper!!!!x

Forgot Ruby Winters which started the decade as a Mick Smith 15 quid tune, turned into a staple collectors 45... I think underneath the swaths of BIG records this was one of the biggest tracks of the decade, if you think how readily available it was, and how may bought it...

 

Also remember All Brighton and Gino - Its only a a Paper Moon / Tommy Fontera -  Your my Leading Lady, great tracks those two, Try Dodds on El Camino made a come back, I guess that was Stafford initially, and who could forget when 'Harvey - Any Way You Wanta' went big, you heard that literally everywhere you went...

 

Remember Ady playing The Devonnes - Doin' The Gittin' Up at the Manchester Ritz, Rarest of the Rare allnighter, Gladys Knight & the Pips - No One Could Love You More was massive wasn't it, and Kim Weston - A Thrill A Moment as the River Bar in town... a certain favorite from everybody there..

 

How big was Ernestine Eady - The Change massive...Delilah Kennebreuw — Bright lights, and everybody wanted Andrea Henry - Need you like a baby, they still do I think....best mention 'The Falcons - Good Good Feeling'...

 

I'm not gonna knock the new stuff, cause its all old music which ever way you look at it, and there are lots of great new tracks to discover, but I cant help liking the tracks that were big in the 9ts.... :wink::thumbsup:

 

Mal.C

 

P.s.. I know it was else where but Flash McKinley - I'll Rescue You from Butch at the 100 club... hauntingly etched on ya memory..

You are re-writing history again.  Every track you have mentioned were hammered by the time you were Djing, many had been dropped by your more forward thinking DJ as oldies. Joy Lovejoy was a staple of most oldies nights.   If your mates said the vocal to Hopes and Dreams was rarely played then then they weren't what you call hardcore.  Did you really have Man O Man on La Cindy?  It had been covered up since the mid 80's by Butch and very few copies about.  Butch was the only one I heard play it at Bretby.

 

90's was a bleak time really for discoveries IMO.  The music had by and large taken a huge backward step with very few progressive DJ's getting a look in at the larger venues. Oldies were becoming the staple of many playlists and the thirst for new discoveries were drowning in a sea of mediocrity IMO.

 

There were venues still doing the business though, The Wilton where many collectors were given a chance, The 100 Club, Droyslden, Duncan Pollett and Pete Hollander over in Cheshire etc, Winsford etc etc.

 

There were still DJ's plugging away with new discoveries which because of the reliance on oldies took some years to filter through.  Butch of course, Kitch and Dean, Andy Rix, Ady...etc.

 

Anyway excellent podcast Martyn, you are getting good at this :D

I only remember what I did Chalky!!!x I also remember what was around me. I am ignorant of the past but was guided well. I won;t name them because they are some of your heroes I believe too...and don;t deserve your reference i'd say!x The Hopes n Dreams.....I was everywhere Chalky.....it weren't being spun at Nighters where I frequented.....early 90's. I was given a copy to spin by a friend who was 'active' to know at the time.....since the 70's. It did as I described and know...or heard...nowt else!x It may have had local exposure....but National???/ I never danced to it until I spun it at me soul night a year into the scene and after say 30 nighters under me belt for the year??? As for Walter.....it was Shifty's I believe...or Fingers.....or u know wot....I can't remember and weren't bothered!!!!x As I was 'representing' the then 'new wave' on the National scene....then Shifty....I think even Lenny and certainly Kev Fev in Norwich.....many folk who had awesome collections insisted on giving me tunes too play!!!! Emporer of My Baby's Heart Kev Fev made me spin it at the 100 Club.....never heard it poo'd meself......!!!!x They lent me tunes. Shifty didn't get National until I persuaded Mick/Little Scotty to put him on....and he was away and rightly so. He lent me Your My Mellow too....cos I wanted to spin the B side My Kind of Woman....and did....he wouldn't sell me it....!! Never heard that on the National stage over 9 years.....unless I spun it!!!x That's all I remember. Ain't givin it sum or owt and not meaning to Chalky....just being as honest as I recall.

 

There is this factor too. Records in East Anglia I found massive........went flat up tNorf!!! Same t'other way round!!! Some tunes got huge in an area because he local DJ had them!! I remember going to Lennys Wellingboro'. Him...Ciro...Dave Vanner.......they were spinning tunes that I didn't hear at Nighters for another year.......if it was being spun.....i;'d have known!!!!! Folks first thing they did as they saw me was chew me lugholes off telling me wot happened here there and everywhere!!!!!! I called it intelligence gathering and quite often picked their brains up off the floor as they parted which they thanked me for....hehe!!!x So....from my memory.....the tunes I mention weren't 'prolific' NATIONALLY on the nighter scene......that I heard. Some may have had their day in the 80's/90s....and I ain;t being disrespectful to them either. I just 'had it away' with these. If they'd have been 'finished'......the dance floor would have told......I was entertaining the hard core......they din't have any ole sh*t....and I never gave it mate.....X

....ooops. I told a porkie by accident. When Shifty got his first spot at The Ritz.....he spun My Kind of Woman and dedicated it to me. I danced my ar*e off. It was the only chance I got to do such from the floor...in 9 years. It was our 'moment' of Togetherness. Happy days....X

You would have heard me playing Jimmy Fraser vocal and Kurt Harris at the 100 Club before you'd started DJing Sooty

Bugger, I was gonna ask him if he played the Kurt Harris first :lol:  I had one of the first few to turn up after you made it a monster down the 100 Club.  Played at Stafford also by I think Keith?

 

By the early 90's whenever I heard Jimmy Fraser I was beginning to think, "not again" but I must have been imagining hearing it as it wasn't played anywhere only the instrumental?

Looks like a Volume 2 is called for,will have to dig through the dark corners of the collection see what's hiding away  :thumbup: 

Thanks for all the comments.

Look forward to that Martyn.I hope people take it all in the spirit of the 90 vein.Sure some were played before at stafford or even earlier venues but there were lots of great records that i will always associate with the 90s.Also certain DJs were in there pomp at this time Sooty being one of them.Kenny Burrels golden time also,and one of my faves Bob Hindsley.As For the scary corner people well lots of hard core characters girls as well as blokes were still around from the 80s.Some you loved being around and some you avoided but they often gave the night that edge that made the atmosphere electric at places like keele.

Sooty again you are rewriting history.  

 

I didn't say the records were finished did I?  I said they'd been hammered and most of the DJ's who played them had dropped them because they'd been hammered and were no longer either exclusive and every Tom Dick and Arry was spinning them.  The Hyperions Why You Wanna Treat Me, monster for Rob Marriott from 88ish into the 90's, Jimmy Robbins was a five quid record in every sales box and was done and dusted for many DJ's by the early 90's.  Etta James the same.  You obviously missed out on these and by the time you were DJing you were playing catch up but you weren't to know this having not been around.  As for Kurt Harris it was one of the biggest records on the scene and had been since the mid 80's.  

 

Just because you didn't hear it doesn't mean it wasn't around and being played, plenty of places and DJ's back then were playing them.  There was more than you being "hardcore"  :wicked:

Still a class track for me but has been hammered,saying that personally not heard it out for ages.

Tom Paddison(JC) who djed at Cleethorpes 70t's nighters said he used to play it off the LP back then?

Ya gotta be joking man. "In orbit" was popular enough that by 1972 that it was included on a UK Chess compilation album at the time. this has  always been a popular cheap oldie since when God was a boy.

Really enjoyed this Martyn, thanks - just been playing it through now. Wish I had a Daisy Burris - what a tune  :thumbsup:

 

A few more that remind me of the 90's era that I don't think anyone has mentioned yet:-

 

Fortson & Scott - Sweet lover

Terry Callier - Look at me now

Wade Flemons - Jeanette

Timmie Williams - Competition

Jimmy Bo Horne - I just can't speak

Rhonda Davis - Can you remember

The Constellations - I  didn't know how to

Sugar & Spices - Have faith in me

Dennis Edwards - Johnny on the spot / I didn't know how to

The Poets - Wrapped around your finger

Brothers of Soul - I'd be grateful

The Trends - Thanks for a little loving

Joseph Moore - I still can't get you

 

Also remember being absolutely blown away by Nolan Porter - time almost stood still when it was spun. Used to love it at Bretby, Manchester Ritz, etc, with everyone clapping along

It may have been played at the Wheel.

kurt harris always reminds of the tracky club in barnsley around 87/8/9 ...strange tho 45`s like nolan porter if i could only be sure..i never heard out til saus dropped it one night at the wilton about 96.. nearly fell off my chair.. but i had it on the shelf for 10 yrs before then..never really thought of it as northern soul

 

That'd be me at Tracky with Kurt Harris,

Its been known ever since the LP came out,   73/74 ?.

See my reply in post 20.

 

Another one off the original list that was played at the Torch 72/73 was Marjorie Black One More Hurt.

Did say in my first post that they were sounds getting played at that time not when they were first played as I knew quite a few of them were broke pre-90t's,Marjorie Black been one of them.

Cheers

Think you need to read all the posts?As I said in post one the Podcast was of tunes that were getting played at nighters in the 90t's not tunes "broke" in the 90t's?

"In Orbit" ??? Why did this record ever ever ever become part of the great Northern Soul scene? It is not soul it is POP

Very true, it could even be quoted in the songs that bring me to tears, though not for good reasons, then again it would not be the only big NS tune  could quote in this category!!
