  1. Sides with a spoken part

    No one mentioned Bob Relf Blowing My Mind To Pieces yet?. Surely one of the best!

  3. John Peel's unknown soul record from 1975?

    I remember him waxing Lyrical about Linda Jones, especially IJCLML. It was just after they did a record collectors article about Northern Soul Collecting. Ian Levine was interviewed, and they played, if my memory serves me correctly, Invitation Band Of Angels...
  4. Gucci Does Northern soul

    Apparently the next fashion house to do this are Primark, with a soundtrack of Wigans Ovation, Ruth Swann and The Jezabels
  5. Gucci Does Northern soul

    The Night only became really well known after it was plucked from relative obscurity, played at Wigan and other "northern" clubs. It was then re issued and hit the charts. Just saying!
  6. Idle Few - People Thats Why - Blue Book

    I once played that out at 45 RPM covered up as Pinky & Perky. Great dancer, but the vocals were a bit off!
  7. Wigan Burns, Piano remains

    Is that Ian Levine playing on the SWONS version of My World Is On Fire?
  8. Blackpool Mecca cover-ups 1974

    My God, two I obviously blocked from my mind!
  9. Wigan three before eight

    I remember it keeps raining being played by Dave Evison in the main room around 75. Totally cleared the floor. I was surprised when I heard that it had gone quite big a few years later.
  10. Blackpool Mecca cover-ups 1974

    Another one from Ians adds was Thump Time, the Righteous Brothers Band. Anyone know what that was? Always wondered. Paul
  11. Mike McDonald* – God Knows

    Hate it, sounds like a Cliff Richard tune. Saying that, there a far worse records played.
  12. Simpler times, when top DJs would share the top sounds around via emidiscs and no one screamed OVO! Paul
  13. "My Loves On Ration"Who?

    I know I bought my copy in the late 80s off Dave Banks. Paul
  14. "My Loves On Ration"Who?

    I keep meaning to ask the same question. I didn't recognise the A side, but the B side was definitely "Dawn". I didn't know if it was a legit release or not. Thanks for the info. Paul
  15. Piano Intros

    I don't think anyone has mentioned this classic yet, although I have only flicked through the thread. Paul
