John kojak harvey soul convention blackpool 1975


Recommended Posts

Posted

Can anyone help me in respect of the cancelled soul convention at norbrek castle hotel blackpool.

Did anyone ever get any money back and looked through old forums and old blues and soul mags for information 

Met kojak on numerous occassions and always seemed committed but following the convention a whole new side of him became apparant soul man or user ???

Notice someone commented om here he was still doing yate until early 77 but i thought following the norbreck fiasco in dec 75 he struggled to work northern .any info appreciated

I know he lost a lot of friends godin and co who championed his venture but apparantly he sent a letter to inter city soul members but neither godin or me got one 

Thanks in anticipation

thank you ,yes the event was scheduled for Dec 1975 .it was cancelled at last minute due to kojaks admittance to hospital.a lot of nastinessvwent on and people lost a lot of money in ticket prices around 30 pounds.very few got money back and the artists all.were cancelled not by kojak but by godin etc etc at this point everything was in good faith.but then a few other things came to light.

blues and soul in.godins column covered most of it but last mention was around Feb mar 76 when.kojak.i.believe sent a few.letters out with his version

I never.recievef.one and.neither did.godin.so.i.believe the letters were like the.proverbial rocking horse....

thanks.for your.help still trying to find if anyone can.help with.any.more info

I was just a.little surprised to learn.from earlier contrnuter he was syll djinh in 77 because by then.inter city had folded 

 

etc
