Ernie Bush - Breakaway

Recommended Posts

I'm sure it was just a new release on Contempo in about 74/75 that was being pushed by Blues & Soul. I never remember it being too big anywhere.

74/5, so maybe a Mecca track?

 

Just that I don't remember it from then but it perhaps was lost in the deluge of stuff being discovered/played at that time.

It got played almost everywhere l went back than.

In them days soul do's were 7 nights a week, not just weekend.

I have/had a live tape from The Cir All Nighter in Burnley (C120) and it is on there twice.

Side one Ginger playing it, side two Sam playing it.

Funny what you can't remember! Was around when Brothers etc was being played but just can't remember Ernie Bush at all. 

Thanks for the input guys.

Definitely played at Wigan in the main room, probably late 75. Ginger also played it, and it was played at Burnley Rose Room and the Circ all dayers.

First time I heard it would have been at The Ebor Suite in York - so most likely played by Alan Rhodes. But agreed, it was played all over Yorkshire (at least) to my knowledge - maybe not for a long time though. I'd say it got dropped as soon as the Contempo release came out, which was when I bought my copy.

The US Contempo / Scepter 45 must have come out a short while after that but it was many years later before I came across a copy.
