  1. Didn't we go through this in 1975 with Footsee, Wigans Ovation etc. Plus Major National newspapers, including the Sunday Times, doing spreads about the scene. There was a relatively large influx of "Divs", "Sightseers" etc. The floor at the casino full of sle...
  2. Northern Soul In the Mainstream

    Didn't this all happen in 1975! Paul
  3. Not the end of the night, but end of my set was Almost, Betty Lavette. Paul
  4. LP only tracks?

    I remember this version being played round our way. Paul
  5. One of my favourite groups from when I first heard Baby Do The Philly Dog, The Olympics. I love the lyrics of many of the songs, Particularly I'll Do A little Bit More, Secret Agents, Same Old Thing. Paul

  12. Wigan Burns, Piano remains

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

    My God, two I obviously blocked from my mind!
  14. 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.
