Hi I'm just putting something out there for comments, what makes this soul scene great is it the people and meeting old friends regularly, or is it just the 🎶. Thanks, steve 

Moving this out to AATS, Site Stuff is technically about issues/queries about using the site. Good idea for a thread though, see you over there!

Wigan Casino 3am  the needle drops every part of your being feels it the drums crash in the bass pulsates through you and George Blackwells vocals hit you , you move in perfect time to the chugging beat and for those three minutes you are the King of the  world .

Massive difference now at 62 years old dont get out much . Suppose from 1971 to 1977 it was a lifestyle . I love hearing new sounds and enjoy it when I can get out and catching up with old mates .

For me nothing can touch those six years though .

The sheer volume of sounds to appreciate......................  {just considering the titles in the latest manship guide you could run a weekly 10 hour event for 5 years and not play a single repeat}

You just know that would never happen.  There's nothing great about the scene at present .With the one acception  of the youngster's . The scene we know so well is splintered  beyond repair .far to many nights far to many wannabes the only true good side is the music. The rest is a pale shade of what we had. .

Keep getting told by our caravan group leader that I have to attend this years Cleggy Weekender (only ever missed a couple of em) ....

... BUT I PROTEST ... I'll be 70 just a few weeks after this years event ... "Ohh, but you don't seem old, so you should attend" is the only reply I can get ...

...........   well I FEEL bloody old, so still making my mind up.

That's why I put the everything 😎. Too many do gooders, God bothers on here these days, that frown upon anything that they deem to be wrong. They forget that the nighter  scene was and still is based on it. Unless your Russ Winstanley who for some reason denies it happened .
