    Coldest Days of My Life-Walter Jackson

A brief intro...

I was involved in the setting up of the nighters at the Central. I could also be seen working the door or cloakroom..also doing the memberships.
I also used to work the italian espresso machine in the coffee bar at Hernies All-Nighters in Leeds (my apologies to anyone whoever bought one there!!). This was a very short-lived club which opened just after the Wheel was closed. was very popular with the all-nighter crowd, only to be raided itself.
The Wheel was my first all-nighter, apart from the local Leeds Spinning Disc ones, the L'Ambassador in Bradford, followed by the Metro in Wakefield, Hernies & the Central in Leeds, the Torch, Va-Va, Casino and so on.

In the early 90's I opened a used vinyl shop in Pudsey in Leeds, which was great fun but no profit. So then turned to record fairs, this lasted around 3-4 years.

Musically, I have many varied loves..Walter Jackson, Oscar Toney Jnr, Geater Davis ... Away from Soul music, I love Miles Davis(Bitches Brew era), Blue Note/Prestige Jazz,  Jamaican r'n'b & ska  .

The best live acts Ive seen are Marvin Gaye in Bradford!!, Oscar Toney at the Torch, Al Green at the Hardrock in Manchester on same bill as Oscar Toney & Margie Joseph!!! also Herbie Hancock at Leeds Uni 
Favourite record.. The Coldest Days Of My Life-Walter Jackson..which took me 10 years to find on a 45 !!.Everyone said it wasn't rare, but only on the issue, not the promo..it was damn hard to find..
