Along Comes Mary

Recommended Posts

Remember this stomping instrumental very well from youth club days but not heard it played out for many a year

Was it a casino spin or did it go back to the Wheel

1978 as a 13 year old and just getting into Northern Soul the local youth clubs used to play stuff the older lads had brought back from the casino and Cleggy.The soulies at my youth club loved the 100mph stompers and Along Comes Mary was a fave.Others were The Kid  ---  Andre Brasseur, Dance A la Musique--French Fries, willie Mitchel--The Champion. Lovelites--Get Him Off my Conscience. Exciters-- Reaching for the best

Add me to the list of people who have thankfully never heard this before.

 

I was late to the party though and hardly any instrumentals were being played.

 

harlem rumble was a big record or was having a revival.

Yep, massive if you were around in 77/78, not sure if it had been played before that but as you say a nostalgia record for some of us...

Hi Andy sure it was a Sam spin first  late 77  early 78   played same time as the camp " marching" but  I may be wrong I'll check with Martin next time I see him
