Pattie Ward On Road

Recommended Posts

Played Pattie Ward's (Girls) You've got to wait for love at the 100 Club on Saturday and the response has been quite overwhelming. Manship has it at £40 with a sound bite and I'm sure if you hunt round, you'll find it cheaper......beautiful female vocal with vibes and strings, very floaty and mid tempo 1968 production........Miss this one at your peril. :D Jo

I agree with you on this, a nice tune, and one that has never really got the attention it deserves.

What is this snobbery thing that cheap means no good...... :angry: You're so right - it should be played out more and it rammed the floor at the 100 on Saturday night when I teamed it up with the Minits 'Still a part of me'........let's start a 'PLAY PATTIE WARD' campaign and boycott all nighters that don't give it an airing :lamsey: Jo

Interestingly this is one of the last records I played before giving up my reluctant dj act. even more curiously at the 100 club also some point in late 80's. Didnt go down too well the few times I played it elsewhere.

This was one of 3 discs I bought in one night supplied by Andy Whitmore in the crossover vein that Andy was championing long before the term was invented (just to bore you further the others were Bernard Smith on Spectrum and Mr Nightingales fav Masterpiece, nice haul) another of great taste and influence on lots of people was Andy, glad to see he seemed to go down well at recent Manchester, well worth the plaudits.

Cheers nostalgically wistful :lamsey:

definitely a regular shuffler in the old canal tavern days - i think it also got a few spins at the early Bretby doo's?? a bit pissed off I missed the girls night out down the 100 club - clashed with FA Cup 3rd round day i'm afraid - as last years was a belter too.

on the subject of blinding mid-tempo soul by lasses named Patti, try out the erstwhile Ms Stokes Mir-a-don outing, 'Is it true'.

the dogs :shhh:

femmefatale first put me on to the excellent Patti Ward tune, and i gave it spin at the Norths Premier night out The Greatstone Hotel, it went down very well but still obviously fairly unknown on the scene even though it appears that it has had a fair amount of exposure over the years.

Incidentally Sunday January 2nd at The Greatstone was by far the best night out I have had for a considerable time probably ever, and we attempted to raise plenty of money for Tsunami Disaster Appeal by people paying for requests but the beauty of it was the requests were for Greatstone sounds not the played out oldies. Can one of the promoters come and let us know how much we raised for the charity.

All the DJ's double up behind the decks and the sounds were awesome all night.

Nice to see John May and his good lady there, becoming at bit of a regular John, great to see you mate. Have a word with Tony and Mark I'm sure they will let you do a set some time.

Cheers

Alan

jocko, oddly enough I think Andy Whitmore helped me get a copy many years ago and you're dead right Andy was way ahead of the game with his taste and the sets he played which sadly were not frequent enough.

Not that I am easily influenced, but I've just bagged one, and will play it next Saturday (22nd) at our night in Newport. (Thats what they call a blatent plug I think).

I dont think i've ever heard it, but I know Jo wouldnt push a duff tune, so i'm looking forward to hearing it.

Bought the Patti Ward from Roger Banks around 1994 and played it several times at local do's, never really did the business but I still rate it highly and recommend it to lovers of girlie midtempo stuff. :D
