Soul Sam @ St Ives All-nighter 1977/78 LIVE TAPE

Posted (edited)

Found this recently on Soundcloud.  This is NOT my tape it was recorded/posted by 'old soulie' but brings back many memories of many nights spent there.

I'm guessing late '77 early '78 from the sounds but thought St Ives closed late 77 but I believe there were some all-nighters in 78?

NOTE The recording seems to run a tad slow to my ears.

00:00 Bernie Williams - Ever Again [Bell]
01:24 Sequins / Cheryl Ann - Too Much Lovin' / I Can't Let Him [Patty]
03:54 Richard 'Popcorn' Wylie - Rosemary What Happened [Karen]

09:20 Cody Michaels - 7 Days 52 Weeks [Merben]
12:23 Paula Durante - You're Not My Kind [GJM]
14:18 J.D. Martin - By Yourself [Tower]
17:59 Susan Coleman - Age Of The Wolf [Remmix]
20:25 Checkerboad Squares - Double Cookin' [Villa]
23:14 Johnny Moore / Eddie Garrigan - The One You Love / I Wish I Was [Fontana]
25:59 Eddie Regan - Playing Hide And Seek [ABC-Paramount]
27:53 Jeanette Harper - Put Me In Your Pocket [20th Centry Fox]
30:30 Billy Watkins - The Ice Man [Era]

45:52 Gwen Owens - Just Say You're Wanted (And Needed) [Velgo]
48:57 Mirwood Men / Servicemen - My Girl's Angry / Are You Angry [Wind Hit]
51:46 Present - Many's The Slip Twixt The Cup And The Lip (Or Baby The World Really Turns) [Mercury]
55:05 Len Barry / Christopher Cerf - Turn Off The Music / Sweet Music [Amy]

I don't know the exact date of the recording ... but all cover ups listed were announced as such on tape (i.e. with c/u name).

The discs are worth a lot more now than then, and I bet Martin would never play more than two of them in the same session now!

Thanks for that .... I thought it a bit early for RCA / Grapevine acetate as it didn't come out until 1979 but couldn't think of what label it was on!

.... Incidentally there is an alternate 'version' that uses same backing by Michael Christian - If I Can't Have You [Concept] (still blue-eyed though! without even a nod to the writer Philly's Bobby Martin):

... and another two by same artist using 7 Days 52 Weeks backing (from Philly, which makes sense as 7 days is credited to Robert L. Martin (aka Bobby Martin) and isn't Merben a Philly label and Cody M was recorded at Virtue studios.  Virtue offered service whereby for $300-$500 you could turn up a cut a disc and put it on Virtue or your own label .... now I wonder if Virtue provided the backing track and different lyrics were recorded on top as that's now at least 5 different songs using same backing???

Liza-Mae - Up Until The Night Time Comes [Concept #CON 920] ... the flip to Juicy Mouth (CON 915) is 'The Watergate Jazz' ... so guessing that would date it between 72-74?

Liza-May - I Want To Be Happy [Omega #OR 811]  NB it's 2nd track @ 2:55 on clip below 1st track is 'Little Girl'  NB Omega 818 is dated 1967 so guessing this must be 66/67? ... Cody Michaels was 1967

The last nighter at St Ives was October 77 & The Servicemen was uncovered before then, so I would say summer of 77 for that tape too

Thanks for confirming when St Ives ended as couldn't recall exactly .... but didn't they run a few all-nighters / all-dayers in 1978 also after it had 'officially' closed?

Servicemen still one of my favourites .... hasn't been 'hampered' by being in Top 500 .... although it should have been!  Apparently only 200 'originals' believed to have been pressed.

The last one I can find that sold listed on Popsike (Feb 2018) was autographed by Larry Banks and sold for £866 (which seems quite cheap to me for such a rare record and also signed by one of the members (if of course the signature is legit) ?)

Hi Soulster22

The St Ives 2nd anniversary due to be held in November 77 was shiffted to The Wirrina in Peterborough. It opened again for all dayers in early 79 but it was around 83/84 before they had any further allnighters there. By that time the moment was lost as Stafford was in full swing so it never really took off as before.

Agree about The Sevicemen. Great records from them & don't think I have ever held a proper copy of Are You Angry let alone come close to owning one !
