All Nite Long Album - Who's Got One?

Recommended Posts

Righto,

After partially hi-jacking another thread, I decided to put this under it's own topic.

'All Nite Long' Album done I think in the early 80's.

I want a track listing. Which number pressing you have (500 pressed and individually numbered apparently)

I want to know where you got it, when, and how much you paid for it.

Also what do you reckon it's worth now.

Any other stories relevant (Cue Mr Mannion re: Jan Jones)

It's quite important to me, as the album more or less shaped my musical tastes.

I thank you, and let's see how many of the 500 we can attribute to SS members. I don't own one, but know a man who does, But isn't a SS member (Mally Meah).

And finally, should anyone be kind enough to make a sad man happy, please sell me one!!!!!

Jamie :D

Interestingly, although Richard was first to play things like Larry Houston, ZZ and Co. people forget that he sold them all to Soul Sam, when him and Arthur set off on the good ship 'Modern Soul' Although RS had all his incredible 60's one offs a lot of the big 70's things were played on acetates until a quantity came along. Sam and Arthur deserve a lot of the credit for the popularity of 70's sounds at the time, and it has to be remembered that for quite a while, politics, from promoters, collectors AND other DJ's kept them from working the big all nighters. Many of the now in demand 70's things were first played by them and they got little or no credit, as once Dave Thorley, Poke and myself got these, generally off John Anderson or Dave Raistrick, they became popularon the mainstream northern scene. (Jan Jones, Timeless Legend, Troy Johnson etc.)

This is not a dig at Richard, by the way, because at the time (early eighties before the 60's Stafford if you understand me) he was head and shoulders above everybody else. The only ones to come near him were Pat Brady up North and Ian Clark. (Poke should have been up there but too much of a nice guy to push himself. And he first played Paul Thompson 'Special Kind of woman' (and others) in the early eighties, not Richard as Kev R says in his book. RS didn't have it then.)

Was the Up All Night album ever re pressed?

I had a copy when it first came out ( early 80's?) which I eventually gave to my brother.

I got a second copy in the 90's from Roger Banks. I think he only charged a tenner, cover was the same and same blank labels.

Played Charles Johnson - Never Had A Love So Good off it at the weekend.

This album came out twice. The first one had, totally off the top of my head,

THE Q

JOHN & WEIRDEST

TY KARIM

DEADBEATS

COURT DAVIS

PROFESSIONALS

on side one, and a pile of modern shite on side 2.

BUT

in the late 80's it came out again with the same sleeve but a totally different track listing and a couple of paper inserts. This version had things like You Want To Change Me on it.

The Deadbeats jumped on every single copy of that first press.

I paid the princely sum of a tenner for it and worth every penny. As soon as my son stops puking I'll dig it out and give you a track listing. I remember when it came out that we were all knocked back by the tracks (Deadbeats; Jan Jones, Charles Johnson; The Q; John & The Wierdest et all). Remember this was all before Cd's and the easy availability of many rare tracks, and so to have all the Monsters issued on one LP really was the stuff of dreams.

Bladeforlife - spot on with th comments mate. Many people forget, or just don't know, that RS really had some cracking toons at that time and that it was really Soul Sam and Arthur who moved the scene forward (albeit it took the masses longer to catch up :-) ) As usual this is a period, the 80's, that is overlooked by all documentaries etc etc and there are many that do not get the credit for saving the scene from itself at the time. Rod Dearlove (how are you mate?) was an inspiration with his mag 'Midnight Express' as was Steve Gaunori (and mail me for a spot at the Plinston soulful one!!!) as were venues like Clifton Hall etc.

OK so I have a copy of the first issue, I will post the number tomorrow.

The first track ( Deadbeats ) does skip a couple of times.

Can any one supply a track listening for the second issue?

the correct title for this album was wvon chicago sampler up all night,petes right there was another with inserts i have both somewhere,but my later copy didnt have inserts the tracklisting [petes insert?]was stuck to the back cover so it was a completely different album just using up the old cover must be they printed too many.

OK, Son's calming down a bit so have dug out my copy for the full info....

WVON F.M CHICAGO 'ALL NITE LONG' LP (Mine is 0057)

SIDE 1

WILLIE G & THE STYLES - NO SECOND CHANCE (Deadbeats)

BOBBY JASON - ALL THESE THINGS (William Powell - Heartache Souviners)

JAMES LEWIS _ THAT'S THE WAY (The Q)

PROFESSIONALS - THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOU

COURT DAVIS - THE LOVER WHO LOVES YOU NOT (Try To Think)

SEVEN SOULS - I STILL LOVE YOU

JOHN & THE WIERDEST - CANT GET OVER THESE MEMORIES

TY KARIM - LIGHTEN UP

SIDE 2

CHERYL BERDELL - GIVING IT ALL TO YOU

DOUG PARKINSON - I'LL BE AROUND

JAN JONES - INDEPENDENT WOMAN

CHARLES JOHNSON - NEVER HAD A LOVE SO GOOD

TYRONE BARKLEY - MAN OF VALUE

OTIS CLAY - THE ONLY WAY IS UP

JAMES MACK - OVER THE TOP (Roy Dawson)

There you go boys and girls, pretty much a list of the top sounds Richard was spinning at the Casino before the doors closed (oh, and then again and again..) for the final time.

My thoughts having dug it out are that 1) what a fantastic LP it was, top sounds and a great balance on each side 2) Not only the Deadbeats jumped, bloody Otis Clay all had that authentic Sisssssss at the start! 3) I wet myself with excitment when i heard the Seven Souls and managed to get a Jan Jones from Soul Bowl the following week for around £15 and thought the B side version was far better.

Who'd have thought that a Chicago radio station could release such a varied output from all across the States at that time - cough! cough!

Ah the memories!! I said on another thread that I thought the Dells was on it, I remember the reason for that is Dells 'Run For Cover' followed Jan Jones on a tape that my Dad had.

All the rest of the stuff was on that tape. Hearing all that for the first time on one tape still sticks in my mind.

I also think it's funny that a 'Chicago' Album would have the current (at that time) UK cover-up titles for tracks/artists LOL!!!

Like I said, it shaped my tastes.

Brilliant stuff, thanks for your input everyone. And Pete Smith :lamsey:

Any chance of a scan anyone?? (I know it's a bit big!!)

Cheers,

Jamie

Are we talking boots of a boot here ? :lol:

Could possibly be a point P Doggy touched on - maybe the numbers were added after to create an illusion of exclusivity to increase prices???

We still haven't got a tracklist for the 2nd issues yet though.....

All Nite Long was pressed up and ready for sale around October 1983. I bought mine at a 100 Club niter in January the following year, and mine's numbered 708.

I paid £10 for it, though the sleeve corner states "$10 RRP"!!!!

It's true what Pete says about "No Second Chance" jumping on the first issues. I put this right by weighing down my stylus and that seemed to do the trick.

Apparently, WVON did exist as a radio station in America, but not sure if it was based in Chicago. What I do know is, according to '80s fanzine BlackBeat, some American bigots used to say that WVON was an acronym for "Whites Vomiting Over N***ers".

WVON was a very real radio station. E. Rodney Jones was a DJ there. His single "R&B Time" was a marketing ploy by the label(TUFF). They hoped it would get more airtime for their other singles. Also, I think it was Mr. Jones who named The Vontastics. They had won a singing contest put on by the station, which led to their recording contract with Satellite/St. Lawrence. On the subject of WVON, you can get airchecks(radio station recordings) of WVON @ www.theaircheckfactory.com.
