Guilty Northern soul pleasure.


Recommended Posts

This might have been asked before.But here goes anyway.

 

What record really does it for you even though you know it's a bit naff.

Mines Tim Tam and the Turn Ons.  Wait a Minute.

There I said it. I feel a burden has been lifted.

Anybody else need to unburden.....

Hugh.

Rob. Night Owl is a anthem . Took me quite a few years to get a nice red Cameo issue. And I used to play it out whenever I got the chance. Still one of my all time favourites. 

the begining of this video clip made me laugh out well loud when I first saw it  as its almost exactly as I remember how it was at Wigan when I first heard this I was there giving it wtf is

Poppy ! But I love it ! 👍🏻

To be honest I've got loads but here's 2 that I still love but feel I shouldn't.

The Invitations     Skiing in the Snow

Bobby Paris    Night Owl

For some reason  I have never got fed up of these, not that you hear them anymore.

Some may say that's a good thing.

Hugh.

Tim Tam and the Turn Ons really is too much of a burden to have to bare for all these years mate.

But these records were all part of growing up on this GREAT scene of ours.

We all have our guilty pleasures.

Neil. Stop Girl is another great record.  Quite a rare record mate. Paid £120 for one about 20 years ago.

Got to agree Steve. Stop Girl is epic. Given the chance I play it back to back with Posse Evil.

Of all the records mentioned so far, Tim Tam is still way out in front in the bad taste guilty pleasure lay this burden down stakes. 

But sure there will be a few more contenders.

Sorry Hugh.

I think I have have a rival to Wait A Minute, as a tune that I truly had forgotten about but these posts brought it all back to embarrass me all over again so many years later.

Does anyone remember :

The Cheery People   And Suddenly

Admittedly a very poor version of Samantha Jones.

Lost Summer Love, Lorraine Silver the beer is flowing and I've said it and it is now out there in the ether till the end of time.😀

Was being hammered by Russ when I first got to the Casino and one of the beauty's of a song like this is that it probably hasn't had a spin since so never pops up anybodys playlist.

Wasn't Lorraine Silver from Northamptonshire and this was just another tailor made for the Northern Scene track. Or is my memory playing tricks on me again

Thanks for your input Mike. I thought I was unburdening myself. Now I'm just getting bullied all the way from the top. 🤣👍👍

Many tunes mentioned I really like. But. Skiing in the snow. How bad is that lyric-wise? I mean, we're talking about soul music. Life. Love. Emotion. And an all-black-group is singing about "Gotta get my gear out ready for a winter spill"?

Amazing what a bit of 'poetic licence' you can get away with...after you have recorded this !!

Love this, heard it at my one and only trip to Stafford (went on to there on a scooter after doing Loughborough on the Friday and kipping(ish) in a car park - a LONG round trip from Oxford, though I did Morecambe from Oxford on a scoot too - didn't go more because I was at college in Hull on the opposite side of the country and could only afford one nighter a month, so usually went down to Peterborough with Martin Midgley from Bradford and Striker from Hull on our scooters). I used to have a Main Chnage (my most expensive purchase at the time - £100 in 86 somewhat less than it is now!, came with a printed sheet with info on all the people involved in the record) - in the end I could never get over the vibe destroying slow break though and sold it to Mark Sargeant - but the rest of it still fills me with the joy of discovering Northern Soul.
One guilty pleasure I still have is Rain 'Out of my mind' - because it's the first specifically 'Northern' record I ever bought (quickly followed by Alfie Khan and Barnaby Bye - oh dear : ) ) - I still have that original poxy Axe reissue today.

Yes the 'vibe destroying slow break' is a difficult moment :D

I bought this years ago at Cleethorpes, and everyone in our caravan relentlessly took the p*ss out of me all weekend for doing so.  Every time someone visited our caravan, this had to be played to them for their take on it - Lots of...."This is awful"........"Sesame Street Theme Tune".....etc ....Until Chantelle from Bedford (RIP) saved the day by saying......."I love this!" Ha ha.

(£300.00 back then)

Yes totally but that quirkyness, is essentially northern soul, too. Especially when I was younger, I was always drawn to odd ball songs titles and lyrics.

Domar always used to tout this as a mecca record, didn't go, was it actually played? 

Has to be a contender if it was, I'm a zeppelin fan so love it, but in a northern soul context? What were Levine or Curtis thinking 🤔
