Recommended Posts

Guest

Just a late reminder that this Saturday 19th February sees a night of brilliant

music, at a brilliant venue.

Classic oldies as well as some of the underplayed oldies that should be played but never are, at Solid Hit Soul , Vivos 17 Watling St. London EC4 with guest DJ John Weston + residents Martin Thomson, Gene Robertson, Stuart Tyler &

Dave Greenhill.

Entry is a fiver & we are open 9pm-2am - Bank tube 2 minute walk as are all night buses & the City Thameslink is only a 5 minute stroll.

Hope to see you there

You can have all the best records on earth but I keep trying to tell you lot, without Bingo you're not gonna be taken seriously!

I suppose I can have a night without it, I'll just do a double shift at Gala on Sunday. But you'll have to make it up to me with Gene Toones!

I'm hoping to scrape together a few quid to get along there.

Does anyone know if there's any car parks nearby or parking restrictions, as it's almost impossible for me to get home on public transport otherwise! whistling.gif

You can park in most of the streets around meters are free on Saturday night. We park on the other side of Cheapside in Gresham Street, usually very easy to park in and about five minutes walk from Vivo. Hope to see you later.

SHS will be our first soul night out since Soul In The City at the beginning of the month. We're looking forward to some decent music and seeing our friends. Sure we won't be disappointed. Hope to meet a few people from Soul Source.

Just a quick thank you to my mates who run it plus John Weston, great night with great music.

So nice to see so many of my friends there. So many records I wanted to dance to, and when you can't (hopefully temporary) it is very frustrating. Lesley had to restrain me when John played Good Times Bad Times, still I suppose you have to be sensible (a new thing for me, lol).

Looking forward to the next one, Mark Bicknell is the guest DJ.

Thanks for coming all and thanks for the kind words, it was a relief to get it going properly at the third attempt and we really appreciate the support. Special thanks to John Weston for coming down and doing us proud.

As for playlists, well I also played an oldies set and I make no apologies for that as I felt it was appropriate at the time.

Not in order:

11pm-12am

Arabians- Take a chance on me (Le Mans)

Little Charles and the Sidewinders- It's a heartache (Decca)

Syl Johnson- Do you know what love is (Special Agent)

Chubby and the Turnpikes- I didn't try (Capitol)

Marv Johnson- Come on and stop (UA)

Kell Osborne- You can't outsmart a woman (Loma)

Kathy and the Calendars- Please don't go (Port)

Irma Thomas- What are you trying to do (Imperial)

Tammy Wayne- Have a good time (Boom)

Rick Nichols- I know the feeling ( Sound)

Johnny Robinson- Gone but not forgotten (Okeh)

Emmanuel Laskey- I've got to run for my life (Thelma)

Kenny Carlton- Lost and found (Blue Rock)

Willy McDougal- Don't turn away (Kinard)

Difosco- Sunshine love (Earthquake)

Betty Lloyd- I'm catching on (BSC)

Gracie Darnell- The bad guys (Ruth)

Athens Rogues- She could love me (Stop)

Explosive Dynamiks- Whole lotta loving (Lemco)

Karmello Brooks- Tell me baby (Milestone)

Bob and Fred- I'll be on my way (Big Mack)

Larry Santos- You got me where you want me (Evolution)

John Andrews- It's just love (UK Parlophone)

Duke and Leonard- Just do the best you can (Stomp Town)

Silky Hargreaves- Keep loving me (like you do)(Dearborn)

Marie Knight- That's no way to treat a girl (Musicor)

Some blinding tunes from the others and I'm sure other playlists will follow. whistling.gif

As Geoff said, next one is on Saturday April 16th with Mark Bicknell - and it'll be proper springtime by then- can't wait (on all counts!)

From small acorns Martin....Keep on keeping on!

You four guys play a great blend of records with a passion and integrity that has to be applauded. No holding back with big name guest DJs....Dave Rimmer, Arthur Fenn, John Weston and in two months time one of my favourites Mark Bicknell.

If you've been you know what I'm on about........if you haven't do your ears and hearts a favour and make a trip to Vivos in the City soon.

Thanks to everyone for your positive comments, a great night & looking forward to April 16th

Cheers Mark, looking forward to having you down for 16th

All the best Dave G

For those who didn't make it, here's a short summing up of the night with my playlist on the end. Apologies in advance, not sure on cross posting but I did post this on RSF.

After the poor attendance at Decembers Solid Hit we were a tad apprehensive

about this one but despite missing a lot of faces that you would normally expect at a London event Solid Hit Soul Club certainly hit the spot on Saturday. Fairly low numbers early on & most missed an excellent spot from Gene Robertson playing a mix of well known but not particularly obvious stuff with quite a few semi knowns thrown in with Trickster & Co on the floor early on. Stuart Tyler was on next, again playing a mix of semi knowns, unknowns & his alternate mix acetate of Midnight Johnnie. Stuarts plays were the absolute dogs dangley bits & why he doesn’t get a lot more bookings is beyond me.(although I’ve heard he’s big in Gothenburg :lol: ) Martin was next up, fresh from the Dundee night last week & as always he played a great mix of current nighter plays + a brilliant selection of well known oldies & semi knowns. Time for our guest for the night, a very sober JohnWeston & what a set he played. Maybe I need to get out a bit more but a lot of what he played I didn’t know (brilliant set John, thanks)& all the while the dance floor was heaving.

Of course what is semi known to some people is a “everyone knows that

one surely” to others but I have called them semi knowns because of the constant stream of people to the decks asking what particular records were!

I was on last and played a set of well known oldies to send everyone home happy(hopefully). Mis placed some in my box so not a full list but most are here.

Gotta say a huge thanks to everyone who turned up, especially those who had travelled distances & those who had left other events to come to us, cheers everyone, a brilliant night & hopefully see you all back on the 16th April

when our guest will be Mark Bicknell.

Here’s my last hour of oldies, thanks again.

Solid Hit Soul Club 19/2/05 1am - 2am

Frances Nero Keep on loving me

Patrice Holloway Ecstasy

Showmen Our love will grow

Al Apollo I’m walking

Timi Yuro I ain’t gonna cry no more

Bill Horton I wanna know

Johnny Howard The chase is on

Dee Dee Warwick Don’t you ever give up on me

Don & Ron I’m so so sorry

Lenny Curtis Nothing can help you now

Geno Washington Like my baby

Valentinos Sweeter than the day before

Gloria Parker The best thing for you baby

Lonnie Lestor You can’t go

Earl Grant Hide nor hair

Herbert Hunter I was born to love you

Lou Courtney I watched you slowly slip away

Fenways The fight

Carol Anderson Taking my mind off love

Ideals Mighty lover

Donald Jenkins Somebody help me

& the bastard bar staff turned the speakers off during the Ideals but the monitor behind the decks played on & so did I for one last one!
