That is NOT a '60s Motown recording.  It is NOT as old as even the early 1970s.  It sounds like an '80s or '90s recording (reminiscent of Ian Levine's recordings, but more simple, and not very good quality.

Unknown Motown - the internet strikes again with mis-information. Agree a tailor made remake and it was credited to The Carstairs. What's more embarrassing though is seeing that this was a local soul night round the Beds area.  :( One of the DJs needs a slap.

Ae there any proper instruments on it, it doesn't even sound like an old recording.  Have they got ears those who post this crap, those who make the motown comments I mean.

God forbid that this example was ever played out anywhere.  Sounds like a poor karaoke performance.

Now there's a novel idea - karaoke soul nights. !!!!!!

Bet they'd be queuing up at the Tower Ballroom. :wicked:

Thanks for the replies :-) Not my clip and no, not the greatest but I was just interested to know if there was another version. I'm sure I have a mp3 somewhere, but not the youtube one.

Cheers

Not one of my old Kempston Rovers or Bedford Ath soul nites Steve I might add !!!!

Couple of recogniseable Bedford soulies in the video alright but these guys do travel around.

I think its somewhere in Peterborough......

And yes why would anyone make such a shi*e version of the Salvadores classic  :ohmy:

Bang on Hammie looks like the right track with the bar on the left hand side, guess ask Smudge or Martin Coulderbank

I think you could be right. I think there's a clue on that big yellow banner draped in front of the decks saying "right track"  :thumbup:

I wouldn't actually know though. Considering the place is only 20 odd miles from me house. I've never been but I'm gonna now with these quality tunes played.

Right, tin hat on and securely in place..

 

Personally I think its a refreshing alternate to The Salvador's original!!  :yes:

 

AND.. It always pulled the punters on to the floor whenever I used to play it out - which was on a regular basis.

 

It is also my understanding that it is indeed credited to The Carstairs and was supposedly cut in the early 90's when (as stated on here) they were over here making a few appearances.

 

My final comment being the old adage of 'It would be a boring Scene if.. etc. :D

When this was released I did a rather critical review of it. My point was though, that with Ian Levine's excellent pedigree as a producer with Take That etc, why didn't he record the Carstairs on that type of record ! At least with the right promotion they would have stood a chance of making the charts, and making some money.

I also questioned who was actually going to buy the single that was recorded !

Ian at some point read my review and rang me up on a Sunday afternoon and proceeded to miss my point about possibly recording something contemporary, and having a chance of a hit, and harangued me for about three hours for having the termerity to criticise the recording.

Happy days

You for real?

You are not Sooty in disguise are you?  :lol:

Is that Fingers who used to DJ? Please don't say you used to play this?

 

Honestly it's a shocking remake, and how you could even give it credibility is beyond me. It certainly is NOT making the scene interesting at all. Just another in a now long list of embarrassing moments.

I think its credited to the Carstairs ..when they were over i belive Ian done it

. it was the carstairs ,they performed stick by me baby at Blackpool Mecca mid 90s I seem to remember Lorraine chandler was on the bill as well , if you had been there, you would thought the same as me , that the way they sung stick by me baby was awesome , I believe that the version you are listening to , is a live version edited by Ian Levine, which is never ever gonna sound as good as a proper studio cut

I did think that Smudger myself, the picture footage is a series of 'stills' and not footage with live sound on the night

at the venue. I think the 'crap version' has just been coincidentally added.

If I was ever at a soul night and someone play this type of thing promoter and Dj would'nt get off lightly from me   :boxing:
