  • A brief intro...
    First heard "northern" in 71 at St Maries youth club in Southport. Started going to Allnighters in 73 at VaVas at the tender age of 15. Closely followed by Wigan a few weeks after it opened. Also used to go to other venues, Mecca, Sams, Whitchurch etc. Joined the Navy in 76. I still love Northern Soul to the exclusion of all other music, but do not attend many venues nowadays. I Now live in Portsmouth.

  1. Deposit sent. Looking forward to reading it. Paul
  2. Turning the topic in its head a bit, I bought a Moses Smith GATS for 50p in 1974, knowing it was a boot. Moving on 30 years, I was pricing my records up to sell them and using Manships Boot guide I found out Moses was an original!
  3. Found it Blues And Soul 113 dated July 6th 1973. Just noticed by the time the issue had come out, the event had happened!
  4. From what I remember, it was Market Drayton, and advertised as Bar B Q and splash. I remember the ads in B&S. Summer of 73 and definitely ISC. It's funny, I can't remember what I did yesterday, but remember an advert from a magazine 47 years ago! Paul
  5. I bought Motown Memories Vol 1 on cassette when it came out. The non stop one with 6X6, little Darling etc. One of the best compilations ever!
  6. Unfortunately not a documentary, but did anyone watch the near impossible quiz, Only Connect last week. A music question about what links the following tracks. They played Lorraine Chandler You only Live Twice. The link was rejected James Bond themes. Paul
  7. I don't think this has been mentioned, but it used to be mentioned in the adverts in B&S, and I certainly remember it being played round 74. The Tikis, Stop Look And Listen. Paul
  8. Sorry for another slightly negative thread, after Pete's "Most hated" one being resurrected. I look at FB when the a lot of the same tracks are posted, and people claim they are their absolute favourites and I just don't get them at all. I'll mention 3 Cajun Hart Got To Find A Way Rufus Lumley Stronger Than Me Mike McDonald God Knows I get why they may have been played in the lean years, but people seem to absolutely love them! There, that's off my chest! Paul
  9. I'm smoking more but enjoying it less, I get a whole lot of sleep but I don't get enough rest. Paul
  10. The Gloria and Towanda tunes are different versions/mixes aren't they? Paul
  11. Didn't it happen at the Queens Hall in Leeds in 74? Never again!!!! Paul
  12. Was there a version by Kenny Bernard, or are you mistaking the Pye Disco Demand release with Leon Young on one side, and Kenny Bernard, What Love Brings on the other.?
  13. Did I sell you a copy years ago in Plymouth? Paul(I was known as Jimmy back then!)
  14. I've never seen any pictures of me at the Casino or any other 70s venues. But these were taken on holiday in 1973 about a month before my first all nighter at VaVas. I looked quite innocent then!
