YOUTH CLUB SOUL REVISITED
 

Here’s a selection of sounds big in the youth clubs between 1969 and 1975, many of which started in the “Rare Soul” clubs and made their way into public consciousness resulting in chart hits for the likes of The Newbeats, The Fascinations and Dobie Gray.  Amost everyone you knew was into Soul music back in those days – either that or they were either an ex-RAF greatcoat wearing Prog Rocker, or a Slade loving Boot Boy.  Well I always loved Slade to be honest but hated that Prog Rock rubbish and still do…anyway, dancing shoes at the ready, this one is going to make you feel like a teenager again…that’s presuming you’re now an old git like me

Nice one Pete! Worcester City Youth played a lot of those around '72. "Breakout" used to get everyone in a right frenzy. Scruboard was a huge favourite too, along with the Shakers, Devil with a Blue Dress, Purple Haze and Love Train. One Minute Every Hour was played every hour at least!
