  4. Gladys Knight at the Fiesta Club in Stockton

    Quite a few years back I was a budding food sales rep.and was out canvassing for business, in the ferrybridge are of west Yorkshire I was on my way home and had to call in to see a customer who ran a restaurant.When I walked through the door on the wall was a massive signed poster of Gladys Knight and the Pips, to which i said to my customer "I didn't know you were into soul " , his reply was i'm not but last night as I was closing a massive bus pulled into the car park. Out came this lady and said to me hI aam Glaadys (American accent) Knight and these are the Pips could you rustle up a bite to eat for us all. He cooked them a meal and had a wonderful conversation with them all.As they were going Gladys came back from the bus and gave my customer a signed poster. Regards Fred.
  5. Blue-eyed Soul?

    John Carmody (Weasel) RIP A very good mate and sadly missed, i'm sure many "Soulies " on here knew him . Weasel strong as an ox, i remember it as it were yesterday when we were all staying at the Salisbury hotel in Scarborough our kid (Rob Ward) couldn't open his room window for some fresh air when Weasel came to the rescue.Not only did he open the window but somehow through sheer brute strength twisted the window in the frame. Good times. Regards Fred

  7. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

Regards Fred.

  12. Clifton Hall

    I remember one night we were on our way and couldn't find the place.We were all well blocked and must have passed this police sergeant three times who was standing on the corner of a street and looking suspicious at us.As we were passing the local police station. Psyco (Chris Jenkinson) who was in the car with us suddenly said "stop the car and i'll go into the station and ask the old bill the way." Talk about bottle, we were amazed at Chris.Needless to say he came out with directions and as they say a good night was had by all. One record always sticks in my mind from Clifton hall,I think it was a Searling cover up,Over the top by Roy Dawson covered up as the Chicago gangsters. Regards Fred
  13. Gucci Does Northern soul

    As already said superb music, however the music and the clothes don't go together. Might also send out the message that us Soulies dance and dress like that .It also shows that you can't manufacture our scene. Regards Fred.

    Rudy's Scarborough, brings back memories, some good and some not so good.Sadly the manager John Rona (from Barnsley ) got kicked to death in an alley near to the club.And I think the murder was never solved. On the pleasent and funny side Bub was a regular DJ at the club on bank holidays and was always up for a laugh, on one occasion I remember Bub setting off a fire extinguisher and covered a bouncers head with foam to which Bub was barred from the club. All of us were just rolling about on the floor laughing! Regards Fred.

    The Brian Philips mentioned above,is it the legendary Brian 45 Philips? Cheers Fred.
