Hi everyone, 

I'm looking for a playlist of popular tracks played at the Birmingham Locarno All Dayer over the years. If you can think of your favourites from there or point me in the direction of a list, please comment below. Thank you.

Hello Anthony, welcome to Soul Source,

A number of us from Wolverhampton regularly attended the Locarno on Sunday's. However, it was usually after an All-nighter and so memories are a little hazy!

Out on interest, here's a brief review Karen Jones did which was printed in the Northern Noise magazine number 3. I think I had it as a freebie at the Wigan Oldies 4th Anniversary. The "Broken Heart Attack" record is by the Sweet (not the UK glam band!) and the "These Windows...." record is by Village Sounds. Joe Matthews was Cecil Washington.

I do remember a number of us lining up some chairs and pretending to row our canoe when Sammy Davis Jr -" You Can Count On Me" was played! It's the vocal to the Hawaii 5 0 theme.

I look forward to hearing from people with better memories or who were less frazzled from the night before.

Ones I remember from the “ Lacca” that used to get played a fair bit; off the top of my head:

Benny Spellman - Fortune Teller

Rufus Lumley - Stronger Than Me

Flame n King - Oh Happy Day

Main Change - Sunshine is Her Way

As mentioned in the article above Sammy Davis Jr - You Can Count On Me

Eddie Holman - This Will Be a Night To Remember

Also remember an instrumental version of Sweet Talkin’ Guy ( The Chiffons one) but no idea who it was by, I think Clive Jones used to play it. I also remember him playing Casonova by Coffee and moaning it had nothing to do with Northern Soul.

Add in Nabay - Believe it or not. 

This was a big one for Pep and would probably have still been covered up as "The Detroit Sound"

I remember there was a lot of Pied Piper RCA stuff used a lot, too much in fact 

Talking of RCA, both RCA singles by Beverley Ann also used to get played a lot.

Willie Kendrick's and a lot taken from that LP that Richard Searling did the sleeve notes to if i remember correctly. Blowing up my mind was another one

Thank you all for your comments so far, keep them coming. I'm putting the playlist together for my YouTube channel and for my radio show, so if anyone has any short stories or memories let me know. Be great to get a few real stories to talk about on the show.
