Really Great Forgotten Oldie

Recommended Posts

Fantastic. You've put a name to a tune I used to like.

Now you've got me scrathing my head as to where this was a regular play. Any ideas?

Also value? Does its price actually match its rarity?

I'd say it was up to about £800 nowadays - unusual cos there's not that many rare records on that label (Tru Glo Town).

I've never heard it played out anywhere!

used to be played at the 100 club mid eighties By Ian Clarke

Brilliant tune

Irish Greg had a copy and gave it a few spins at the Capitol soul club

Great Tune

Al H :yes:

Spot on that man, have one of the old tapes somewhere in the loft of Dave with a full 90 minutes of stuff like that covered up. I think it is pretty rare (or rarer than some other things going for the same price is a better way of saying maybe!)

A great record with same title (think) is Spoilers on GMC, believe the other side is getting plays (Shadow in the title), cant play it to see what its like as my amp is bust!!

Cheers

Jock

PS Hippo did you see my offer to swap midtemp with you? I wont be offended if tooo familiar for you.

I remember it on one Dave's list at around £25 quid - this copy had a edge crack mended by a bit of sellotape and I saw it for sale at Desborough about a year and a half ago for £500

The venue was in Sharnbrook Bedfordshire, it's now a delapidated building.

Do you remember who the promoter was?

Seeing as The Castaways was a fairly local scene (as I remember it),does this mean that you folks reminising are (like me) fairly local to the place?

Never missed Bretby (even DJed there) and ex wife is Sarah. Saw Neil at Desboro' some time back, know he's collecting as he bought some records off Andy D who I was with that night. See Cliff and Tony fairly often, Cliff DJ's at Lifeline. Haven't seen Gary or Floyd in years.
