Christ,   some rubbish was played back then (and still is). 

  Rhino,  Interplay,  Phil Coulter ....   SOUL ? 

I know what you mean BUT you had to be there. Amazing at the time.

I was there,   Derek n Ray got hammered ,  seriously hammered.   Phil Coulter was very popular,  thankfully short lived.  Esperanto, the same. 

       4/4 with good orchestration,  seemed to be the recipe for dancefloor reaction.

What about this one? One I dug out of a box at home recently. Needs a bit of volume. Killer. Absolutely love it.

 

Totally! Although could have spent a little more time in thinking up a title 🙂

This is new to me. Thanks for sharing although not my 'dig'. But a fair club sound thing on a great label with an organ very reminiscent of Earl Van Dyke to my ears...

The one Guy played was known as, 'The Michigan Move' by The Phrenetics Band. Superb sound. Made up title and artist? Don't know if anyone knows who / what it actually is and I can't play the link so I don't know if it's even that we're discussing!

Dug out this one this week. 1960 US hit and very early days, Roger Eagle Twisted Wheel sound I believe, from the great James Booker. What a groove!:

Real eye catcher French variation of this popular 45... Only few French pressings are worthwhile collecting IMO beside the ever so good looking EP's and this one if you're into such early sounds. And Peacock evidently is a beautiful label as it is very collectable !

Both these were pretty big at Wigan. There is a whole LP of the harpsichord stuff on the album Boss Baroque.

What sounds like a harmonica is actually a monophonic synthesizer according to "The Complete Motown Singles-1966"

Very much a scooterboy sound of the time (when we were all into northern and none of the other bonehead and rockabilly stuff that poisoned it later) and in fact was booted specifically for the scooter scene on SOS by a certain PW.

Once massive - though now totally forgotten (MUCH prefer the Remarkables 'Never Give Up On Losing You' vocal myself)... I don't think it'd hurt the scene to be hearing the Remarkables and its ilk again.

Just to show I'm not prejudiced in boring people to death, here's a couple of 'notorious' Mecca spins (NYPO is part 2, the most played side, though the backing 'singer' certainly still seems to be enjoying it)...

I'm with you on this one Rick. When I first heard this which was maybe two years ago both myself and my mate said "well this is a bit different". Can't say I liked it until the day after couldn't get it out of my head, luckily for some reason ,maybe fate the title stuck in my head, checked it out on you tube and bought it, I guess it might have took me until now to find it otherwise. I only get the full benefit when the neighbours are out and I can crank it up.

Samba noise very far from anything soulful (IMHO) with the the tricksters's "jazz" guitar addition to justify and the rest follows... My lack of afro is not to shy !

Big plays at St Ives as a new release - Strange sound effects 

I don't think it counts as a strange one so I won't post it but I always loved the live version of Africano by EWF,  happy memories seeing them as support for Santana in Manchester before they hit the big arenas.

uuummmm, I've flirted with the housey stuff, find it very confusing all the different titles, deep house etc, I stuck with it as you asked Rick, it does have a certain hypnotic quality, after listening on the laptop I tried it through the sound bar then found myself on Discogs checking prices, I didn't buy it as I should have realised it would be a 12, I do buy 12's but rarely play them and I doubt that I would play this again but I did enjoy, always nice to listen to something different

Twoshoes said always nice to listen to something different  

Cheers Barry, nice honest comments on the above mentioned and as you say the Housey Things are not for everyone and i get that, on a big Sound System these thing do have a life of their own and i am always on the lookout for something Unusual and these sort of things do bring an interesting change of "Beat & Rhythm" to the dance Floor, at least it Did get you Looking on Discogs 🙂 So not All Bad.

Cheers Barry, Hope You and Yours Stay Safe And Well.
