Interesting film that sparked my memories of those years , attending Jazz Funk events including Reading All Dayers , Purley , and Lacey Lady, Crackers and 100 Club. I attended a Reading All Dayer .. my first .. I think it was about 1977 ..? or 78. It might not be the one mentioned by Chris Hill but the main room was Jazz Funk/Contemporary Soul and Northern in the smaller room . Id heard about Northern Soul by  then , but never been to an event and strayed into the Northern room and .. never really came out. I was hooked. Can't recall the DJ's but the records that stuck in my mind were The Fabulettes :Bigger They Are : Eddie Garigan : I wish I was : and Dobbie Grays Out on the Floor. The Jazz funk crowd invaded with a Conga at one point which I thought was totally disrespectful and unnecessary. As much as I still liked the modern music I felt many of Chris Hills antics were embarrassing and over the top.  He's right their were no fights that I saw but the scene was plagued by hand bag thefts which caused a lot of unease and scathing criticism from the DJs on stage.  Chris Hill's habit of talking over records left you feelings his ego was more important than the music but I cannot fault the Soul/Funk mafia for some great events and radio shows and breaking so many great tunes. Its funny to hear of the Oldies/Modern split debate that had been so prevalent in Northern Soul. The new circle of DJ's were inevitable but I personally felt it got a bit West End elitist with some of those clubs like the Wag. I think Norman Jay adopted a more middle ground musically and earnt a lot of respect .. and he' loves Northern .
