i never seem to hear this anywhere anymore. Maybe because it's not rare or expensive? Pure, unadulterated Northern tune. Ticks every single box. Used to make the floor explode when played at the Casino in 74, and still one of my favourites to this day. On a par with Bunny Sigler "Follow your heart" as a 100% pure example of what a real Northern tune should sound like. 

Always loved this record.  For some reason it reminded of "This Man In Love" - The New Wanderers"....

This is the 1st half of my set which consists of lots of "Not heard it for ages" not in any order, at the last couple of Accrington Soul Club nights.  There are loads of forgotten, un-played oldies out there and this lot fills the floor. A breath of fresh air from the usual "Top 500" that get churned out with not much effort or thought at most soul nights. I try to play half an hour or so in a set of these actually fresh oldies, a good few have actually never been heard by some folks.

Next one is the 29th April:D

Little Johnny Blair - Momma`s Gone

E.Rodney Jones - R&B Time

Adventurers - Easy Baby

Sons of Moses - Soul Symphony

Johnny Taylor - I ain`t Particular

The Volcanos - Help Wanted

Tony & Tyrone - Please Operator

Mel Williams - Can it be Me

Milton Wright - The Gallop

Jerry Cook - I hurt on the Other side

Rocky Roberts - Just Because of You

Roy Redmond - Ain`t that Terrible

Earl Wright - Thumb a Ride

Saxie Russell - Psychedelic Soul

Alice Clark - You Hit Me

The Du-Ettes - Every Beat of my Heart

Timmy Willis - Mr Soul Satisfaction

Dee Dee Warwick - Don`t You Ever Give up on Me

Joe Armstead - I Feel an Urge Coming On

Mike and Ike - Sax on the Track

Lee Andrews - I`ve Had It

Richie Adams - I Can`t Escape From You

Terrible Tom - We Were Made for Each other

Perigents - Love on a Rampage

Levi Jackson - This Beautiful Day

Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band - Brown Sugar

James Bounty - Prove Yourself a Lady

Joe Hicks - Don`t it Make You Feel Funky

Four which got played (amongst a multitude of other gems) at the fab  Plymouth Rarer Soul Alldayer on Sat . 

For some,  they were unknown. For others forgotten until hearing them again . Great dance floor reaction for all . 

Clarence Murray ‘baby you got it‘

Reatha Reese ‘only lies’ 

Frank Butler ‘the love I need’ 

Richard Knight ‘showstopper ‘ (same lyrics as Otis Redding ‘loving by the pound’ but not credited to Otis )

One Friday night my friends and I were on our way to a  Wigan Casino oldies nighter when we called into birch Services and while we were in nature called so I went into the gents toilets only to see Pete Balance  at a sink freshening up. Now Pete was a real character from Pontefract on the scene and I noticed he had a record resting on the sink.We said hello and Pete said the record he had with him was a cracking sound called This Man byWally Cox .I'd never heard it , anyway we were chatting away like you do when he'd gone but left the record I ran out to see if I could see Pete but no he was away . I looked for him in the Casino but never saw him. I still had his record and played it when I got home which I thought was brilliant. I was going to give Pete his record back the next time I saw him but sadly he passed away a while later so this record is very dear to me as not only a superb record but the memory of that night at Birch services will always be with me. All the best Fred Ward.

Ok, taking it on from the 'other' thread...

So you've got a spot at 'Local Soul' next week. What 'not so tired' Oldie would you play to introduce the locals to something other than the Top 50 that's a good Dancer?.

Mine. Not rare - just Quality!.....

 

Probably all depends on what you term as being "oldies". If you began on the scene at Stafford, anything prior to that would technically be an oldie. If at the Torch, then the tunes played prior to then. All relative really. Back in 75, I would have classed anything played prior to the Casino opening as an oldie. Still do. To me, I never knew, Bari Track, and Pain in my heart are all newies!!!  The easiest thing would be to take a serious look at the Wheel thread of a few weeks ago. Enough underplayed and forgotten stuff on there to fill an entire night.
