Hi one and all

 

I chose the moniker "Poolman" as I play pool in the Cambridge league and on the pool forum I am "Soulman" - a name I assumed would have been taken on this forum some time ago!

 

I have been a Northern soul fan since my teenage years. First I heard of it was at school when the infamous "Footsee" came out, then heard of a Northern soul disco in my local, small pub (White Horse, Pampisford) and once I heard sounds like Sandy Hadley's "Since I found a love" I was hooked for life, as no other music compared then, or since.

 

The DJ playing the pub that night turned out to be East Anglia's finest, the unique talent that is Tony Dellar. He also ran the brilliant Howard Mallet club in Cambridge, which became my regular weekly haunt until its closure.

 

Still attending local cambridge soul nights, 3 kids and 8 grandkids later!

 

I came across this site while searching for the name of a track on youtube (one of Jud's clips at the Benn Hall niter in Feb.) I was googling the words I could make out from the song, and came across a post by patto who had asked for the exact info I was after!

 

I was impressed that Kev H came up with the answer (Melvin Davis acetate "Lucille")

 

That was Jud's soul clip 1494.

 

That just left me with one more to identify, from the same niter -Northern Soul Dancing by Jud - Clip 1464 - Benn Hall Niter, Rugby - 7.2.15 - YouTube.htm and I hope you guys can do the business again!

 

Thanks in anticipation! :)

Thanks for the welcome, "Rugby Soul Club" and you are a genius and a scholar for naming that tune!!

 

Thanks so much, I don't know how that one escaped me all these years, but what a tune - Northern Soul perfection to these ears - play it at my funeral and I will be dancing in me coffin!!!!

 

Any one know anything about the group? I have never heard of them before.

 

That's the great thing about this music - the joy of discovering new sounds still happens after 40 years!

Thanks Tivoli and WoodButcher  - would love to be at St. Ives but I can't make this one - 17th October in the diary though!  :)

Cant' find much on them, just a short note Ady Croasdell wrote on the CD with the track on it...

 

We also have one of the best Mirwood sound-a-likes in the Originals Of Sight & Sound’s ‘Long Boots’; a raver of a record that Larry Williams and Johnny Watson would have been honoured to cover.
