  1. The Chelsea Village was the end of Northern Soul nights for Keith Clark, us locals owe him a huge debt of gratitude for all of the great music that he and Steve Sheppard introduced us to. The first soul night he held were in a workings men's club , it was a tiny place above a shoe shop in Boscombe. This was towards the end of 1971 and me and my mates were only 14 and it finished after the last bus had gone which meant a 6 mile walk home! Thankfully a few months later he moved it to a small room above a beef burger restaurant in Bournemouth called Busters, which halved the walk home, we had som
  2. Inter City were involved in nights at The Chelsea Village Bournemouth around 74/75 but John Harvey was not part of it, I do remember him from from Yate, mostly because he played disco/funk which was not why we were there but be honest I do not remember him being involved with Inter City. Kev Roberts came a long a few times but the nights had evolved from some great very small venues rune by Keith Clark and Steve Sheppard, they stated in about 72 and were my first intro to "proper northern soul" both great people with some great records between the and Keith organised my first trip to Wigan in
  3. I just picked this up from Tim Brown's Rare Soul Vinyl newsletter. Peronally I am devastated that he did not put it up for auction because I would have paid him at least £1.5m STOP PRESS - Frank Wilson sells for a million quid! Yes its my copy... and Paul Pugba just couldn't resist. I handed it over with a full face mask and tongs used for handling enriched plutonium borrowed from Sellafield. TikTok was not present. Despite comments from other sources he knew it played okay as he was at the Ritz 'Rarest Of The Rare' allnighter when I played it in front of 1200 people.
  4. If the question is. Did Jnr Walker play at Wigan? Then the answer is yes, I was there but cannot remember which year but do remember how disappointed everyone was that he did not play I ain't going nowhere Paul
  5. Ive got a beautiful red & white demo, almost mint and your for just 2 grand!
  6. I missed one on Ebay recently at about the same price and was pretty miffed but thanks to you I bought the one on discogs. Cheers! Paul
  7. Thanks, I never look at discogs, maybe I should Paul
  8. Wanted Fred Hughes, Baby Boy Brunswick Demo, must be in EX condition or better. Cash waiting Thnaks
  9. His version of Get Ready is also well worth a spin
  10. Paul Capon suggested this, which is spot on. Take a look at most of the Dells stuff and you will find some real gems for peanuts, just because they were pressed in the tens of thousands and for some reason nobody wants them.
  11. It really depends if you want buy only original copies of if you are happy with bootlegs and reissues? In my opinion bootlegs are the scourge of our scene and anyone selling them should be strung up, but that's my opinion, lots of others think differently and are happy to buy them. Reissue are fine if they are official release by record companies or independent labels that are paying the royalties and of course there are loads of CD's and LP's available that will give you access to loads of really very rare recordings for next to nothing. The choice if yours. Paul
  12. Shit like this killed the Casino! https://www.ebay.com/itm/202716960007 And the twats who played it!
  13. Wanted at least Ex, please pm with price and codition
  14. For me it really missed the point. When I saw the trailers of the kids learning to dance I was genuinely excited because Soulboy which was such a disappointment but when I saw it I was just amazed at how it missed the point by as much. I was 15 years old when I first went to Wigan in late 1973 and sure there were loads of drugs and most but of us did partake BUT in the end it was all about the music and the dancing and the friendship and the atmosphere, and the exclusivity. So sorry Elaine,, you may have made few quid out of it but you are most definitely not Mrs Northern Soul and you mis
  15. I almost died of embarrassment the night that this appeared on Top of The Pops. My whole family gathered around the TV to find out what me and my mates had been getting up to at those strange all night clubs that we went to. They took the piss for months and months. It was crap then and it is even worse now and all of the posers who danced on this and who went to Wigan the night Granada turned up to make their crap program should be shot!. They were the people who trashed our scene in the late 70's, they brought the bus loads of stiffs into our clubs. These are the same people who ran to the s
  16. Does anyone know what Rita & The Tiaras and Patti & The Emblems went for in last weeks auction
  17. Does anyone have the results of this Wednesday's auction, as usual with his new site some are still there but most have disappeared
  18. What a brilliant idea A load of old codgers studying 50 year old music and holding allnighters in the students union every Friday and Saturday night, assisted by the boys and girls who are doing degrees in Chemistry!
  19. The last copy of Sam Williams that JM sold went for almost £4k, I remember this very well because it was only just M- and only a few months earlier he sold an unplayed copy of mine but it only made £2800.00
  20. Has the world gone completely nuts or am I missing something here? The highest price ever on Ebay was about £320.00 which I to me looks a lot BUT £1,337.00 Anyone who wants my stone mint, only played once copy drop me a line it's yours for £1250.00
  21. Looks like Ian has picked it, most definitely the BEST record that you can buy for £20 and possibly one of the best soul records ever, LOVE IT!
  22. OK but it is the same as these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kenny-Smith-Lord-Whats-Happening-Go-For-Your-Self-Northern-Soul-Funk-45-7-/151555186509
