  • A brief intro...
    Loved soul and R&B since I was a teenager. Starting going out again to soul do's was one of the best things I've ever done. Saved my sanity during my darkest hours and has given me loads of great friends. Will continue till I physically can't do it.

  1. As said above one to definitely get along with the latest Birth Of Soul CD. Well done Ady and Kent.
  2. I first heard Girl Don't Leave Me, think it was posted on here several years ago, thought it was great, then I heard Girl You're So Sweet and it knocked me out, fantastic imo. So it's Girl You're So Sweet for me, the intro makes my legs want to head for the dance floor.
  3. Sorry to read this news, so many of our singers are leaving us. Used to hear this played in the London clubs I frequented in 1965, just so exciting when you first heard it. RIP Roy Head
  4. After listening to all four versions I pick the Mystics. Jimmy Burns and Bobby James are both good but interchangeable if I heard them out. The Mystics give it a different feel. The Brand New Faces would be okay if I hadn't heard the others. All a matter of personal taste.
  5. When Will You Be Mine is absolutely brilliant in my opinion. Heard via a CD swap, wish it was a 45.

    100 Club On-Liner

    until

    It's a brilliant idea to do this, well done you guys. Some of my friends aren't on Facebook, is there any other way they can listen to this tonight?
    The last 100 Club allnighter was 7 December, so it's not far short of three months since then, therefore anticipation was in the air. I arrived just before 11pm and there was quite a queue waiting to get in. After going through “bag check up” and paying our money to the lovely Rolly it was down the stairs to our favourite club. Keith Money, whose birthday it was, serenaded us in. After sorting myself out and getting a drink it was time for Joel Maslin to take over, starting off with Ooh Boy by the Adorables. Following Joel was 100 Club regular Tony Smith who kept to the 60s generally. Tha
  7. The Boxing Day nighter was excellent, so will do my best to attend this one.
  8. What will be the music policy for this? Who are the DJs?

    100 Club 6TS

    A real packer on Saturday, busy from almost the start. And a lot of new faces as well. Tomas opened proceedings doing mainly oldies, e.g. You're Gone and You Gotta Let Go, obviously people were up for dancing as the floor filled even earlier than usual. The first guest DJ followed Tomas, Hendrik Irmscher from Germany, a new name to me. I didn't know many of his first set but he did include Do You Remember and I Can't Stay Away. Busy floor again. Next on were the second guests, the dynamic duo of Brian and David Pinches from Doncaster. I've known them for some time, seeing them at the
  10. I didn't see the post above mine, may well be the one I refer to.
  11. There is another version of this song. Several years ago on the Essential Modern Soul site a guy used to post a mix of tunes and included the other version, but as per usual I can't remember the name of the group. I do remember that I preferred the Black & Blue version. Could the lady be confused about which group her husband belonged to?
    My third visit to the Haydock Park Golf Club for the Spirit Of The Orwell, and each time it gets better and better. Absolutely superb music from all the DJs, but Butch was really in a class of his own, a true masterclass as his records were really quite different. Unfortunately Flanny couldn't attend so his place was ably taken by his son Liam, he did two good sets, plenty of tunes I didn't know. The other “Orwell” guys did their usual excellent sets, including some current releases, which are often underplayed and can pass under my radar. By the time I normally hear them they have b
  12. Here's the first record by the Drifters, featuring Clyde McPhatter on lead vocal. I would say this is a very important record in the history of rhythm and blues.
