    st.ives allnighters

    Blimey, just come across this thread. as a 15 year old in 77, our peers were all enjoying St Ives etc, sadly i wasnt.... until Sept, when i got there , just in time i hasten to add, i believe it was the last one? The Theatre (oldies room) was pitch black, the main hall had the biggest speakers i'd ever seen , with a curved ? staircase near the entrance. 100 years ago it seems, but i was glad they revived it for the all dayers in 79' . lots of us from these parts went to those. I know Ken Cox was responsible for EASC, but no idea who organised the later all dayers. top venue
  3. Fascinating read... as a punter, you never realised, or worried, who ran this or promoted that. Ken Cox had his finger in some pies during those days, straight in to Peterboro when St ives closed. i used to buy records off him, Casterton Rd, Stamford i seem to recall. Fleet, Cresset, Wirrina, we went to em all, never any bother , apart from a bomb scare (Eddie Holman & Jnr Walker)..... St Ives was another story

    best under priced record under 20 pound

    im sure this can be picked up for less than £20 , I paid 6 for mine, a few years ago. very underplayed and hopefully still cheap … 1.50 seconds of Brill-ness

    Nottingham Palais

    it's like any venue from 40 years ago, big records were nationwide, after being 'broke' at one. st ives to me, has certain stand out records... Eddie Reagan, billy prophet, susan coleman etc... all wigan biggies im sure, but when you only ventured 'close go home' I suppose they evoke memories of certain venues ?
