Thankfully, a lot of people, otherwise we could suppress over half of Soul Source immediately.

Afternoon on the rhino wasn't played the first night.

Bubble Gum Breakthro' was the big Mike Post sound at that time, which happened to be on the Fused LP as well as the 45. On that LP was another great track, A.O.T.R., which Kev Roberts picked up on, he wasnt in the original Wigan deejay line-up and played it months later.

Road to Ruin!

Correct ..... The " Earl Wright " record :( was entitled " On The Road To Ruin " , and was one of Simon Saucepan's many cobbled together outings aimed at the Wigan crowd . It did indeed feature snatches of " Psychedelic Soul " . a truly disgraceful insult to the auditory function of the human being .

Malc Burton

As Malc says Road to Ruin has the sound efect from Saxie Russell on the intro and at the mid-way break. The main body of the tiune though is a big chunk of Bernard Purdie's Testifyin' looped twice. It's from the Soul drums LP which got a UK release on Direction, as well as the US Date issue. Some great funk breaks on thatt album if you like that sort of stuff.

ALWAYS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT THE FIRST RECORD AT THE CASINO WAS THE SHERRYS, FOLLOWED BY R DEAN TAYLOR, THEN THE 3RD WAS LITTLE ANTHONY.

WAZZ.

Wazz,--"Ghost in my house"--was not played at Wigan until very early 1974,--first three were as previously stated.

If I had to hazard a guess I'd go for Danny Wagner's version of "This Thing Called Love" from his Kindred Soul album.

Ready to stand corrected of course :lol:

I suppose The Champion would be in there too. Pretty sure the LP was known of for a while before the EP turned up. I also remember someone (Russ?) playing Willie Mitchell's version of "Who's Making Love" from the On Top album. And then these's the Total Eclipse Orchestra's "Six O'Clock" which was booted as Supertime by Golden World Strings. In fact I'd go with that one for now :huh:

I know the Sherries was the first record played at the Casino but I seem to remember The Tower of Power "This time it's real" being played not long after it, my memory isn't what it was so can anyone else remember it being played.

The first LP track I would guess at The Marvelettes "Only your love can save me".

Didn't go to the VA VA but I would guess at TheTempos "(Countdown) Here I come" I know was a big tune there.

Regards

Alan

I would say "Jumping At The Go Go" Detroit Sound. Just sold a copy of the album to Alan Rhodes. Don't know if it is THE Alan Rhodes though.

Just noticed, Post No. 4 by Fluff says it was the 2nd record played at the Casino

Only £15 unfortunately. There was a discussion about it on here a couple of months ago when I asked for a valuation. I'll try to find it later.
