Richard Searling Spins Revisited

Recommended Posts

I thought I might do a series of these mixes featuring tracks made famous by the top Northern Soul DJ’s in the 70’s.  Obviously, many DJ’s played the same records but I’m going from memory and audio evidence from tapes I recorded at the time.  Richard was responsible for breaking more newies than anyone (with the help of ace soul supplier John Anderson) and his later period spins are amongst the best records ever played on the scene in my opinion.  That Eddie Garrigan is still sh*t though.  There may be one or two ‘speed’ problems on this, I promise this is the last time I ever use the old decks, I’ll go back to two separate turntables from now on, it’s too much hassle keep trying to mend the old ones.  Anyway this is a brilliant set of sounds, and to spare Richard’s blushes I didn’t include Gary Lewis & The Playboys…

I wasn't around at the Casino, but we're all aware of the power of Dickie in those days, but when you see those listed together and credited to him, it really hits the point home,

That's some list of tunes!!

 

Cheers,

Great choices Pete and great listening. My memory has Paris Blues wedged into Cleethorpes a while before it broke at the casino? Your knowledge is better than mine, just raising for a curiosity.
