New - Almost Forgotten 4 - Early 80's Allnighter Sounds PART 4 (FINAL)

Recommended Posts

Here we go folks with what will almost certainly be the final podcast of this particular 'Early 80's Monsters' series.

Bound to be a few here you've either forgotten... or maybe never knew in the first place! :wink:

The last deep dip into the back of the 80's Playbox comprising more 'almost forgotten' and rarely heard records that were very decent floorfillers at Rotherham Clifton Hall, The Rotherham Windmill and Cleethorpes Winter Gardens at the time. Along with a couple of real biggies, here are some of the lesser known sounds of the day.

These were some of the 'edgier' tunes that were played on the early 80's Northern Soul scene... and at the very birth of the Modern Soul scene.

Several are probably due a revival and I'm sure we will see some of these making their way onto playlists in the 21st Century.

I hope that you've enjoyed the series, looking back over 30 years, to the sounds that myself and a handful of others made into Early 80's Allnighter Monsters!

Thanks so much for listening.

:thumbsup:

Hi Shaun

Fabulous.

Are you going to post a track listing?- its frustrating not knowing the names of so many great records.

Haven't heard 'Lady in Red' in a long time - it was MASSIVE, one of those catchy tunes you finally got sick of through overplay (same as 'Prayin') - but hearing it now it sounds brilliant especially that bit when he sings 'Hey Hey Lady' just before the chorus !  and the great rap at the end 'Walking lonely street's at night - it really aint right' 'Smiling at passing cars, hanging round in bars'.

You're right mate. It did go huge!

I found it originally in Lincoln Market for about 10p. When Crofty and I used to sit down and decide what we were going to play that night he wasnt too keen, so I played him the other side (Cup Runneth Over) which he liked even less, so we agreed to go for 'Lady In Red' as the better side!

As usual we'd both play our 'tips' twice each in a night, so by the time the night was over it was a Monster!

Was the first of my tunes to get 'bootlegged' so I guess at that point I knew I had a hit on my hands :lol:

Great music - just can't imagine many of these finding favour on today's northern scene!!

Which is really bizarre when you consider that they were absolutely massive on the Northern Scene of 35 years ago!

Where did it all go wrong? :g:

:thumbsup:

Thanks mate. I could certainly work a few into my set in the Modern Room, if that's what you mean?
