Sunday Times 1976

Recommended Posts

Remember it well. An excellent take on the Casino at the time. Picked up a copy a few months ago on eBay - it was a joy to read. The Times was, and still is, the best paper on a Sunday bar none so it treated the topic with the reverence it deserved unlike contemporary commentators on the scene who peddle the freak-show/Frank Wilson/mad collectors/dance on the hands stuff that just doesn't wash with long term devotees.

Turned up for school one Monday morning and a lad said to me "you're into that northern soul stuff aren't you? This was in yesterdays paper" 

He gave me the article which I still have, the large photo of which was used in the book to accompany Northern Soul the film...:)

Was it the week before or maybe after that a similar feature was published about the Canvey island 1940s/swing  'revival' or is that a shot away brain cells recall ?

while on the ask

has any scans of 'The Suns' double page feature on Wigan surfaced yet ?

Memory  says it featured large page size cutout of Sandy and Neil (yep?) on each page, can't remember the rest apart from it was what you would expect

Simmo from Notts is on one of the smaller photos, known him for many years but didn't realise this until a few months ago

Which one's Simmo.? You still got the original clippings Steve,?

Still got a copy from back in the day, if memory serves me right Southport ,Formby, Ormskirk Soul lads feature in pics, Macca and John in there. Longtime ago now, I was just a lad, but Macca was defo The Soulboy in his day.
