    Desert Island Stevie Wonder Song

    I hear a symphony by Stevie is quite simply the best record ever made. Err...so I would choose that one....

    Twisted Wheel - Sounds ?

    It's So Hard Being a Loser. Classic Wheel spin.

    Had to post this - BGT

    I saw this and to be honest I was ambivalent. Maybe could improve with some coaching, but its all about opinions and I'm not the best talent spotter!
  5. I bet 7 rooms of gloom sounds brilliant at a venue.
  6. Slightly off topic, but the Isley Brothers this old heart of mine was allocated to the 4 tops. They couldn't make the session so the Isleys stood in. I would give a lot to have heard the Tops sing that using the same backing track.

    Piano Intros

    Can't Help Myself the Tops. Awesome.

    7’s on a Juke Box

    I put around 20 singles on the jukebox in the Broadswords in Burnley in 1974. Made George the landlord a fortune. Ben Aitken , Frank Beverly, Barbara Mills , Ed Crook, Baby Don't You Weep and so on. He never bought me a pint for them and I spent a lot of money playing my own records!
  9. The samples play if you have a Microsoft account. Seems like a mixed bag on first hearing, but hopefully Ace may get involved and we might see a release on CD?
  10. Again a classic Troller's response. I quote loads of examples and you try to dissect them, thus prolonging the thread. I'm all for debate but not with you.
  11. I have read all of Majy's replies and he has contradicted himself time after time to make his response defeat the reply. I regularly read my local team's Internet forum, and there are loads of trolls on there whose sole purpose is to wind every body up. This is a poor attempt at a wind up, and I for one am getting fed up of it. To be fair, there has been some really good responses from true soulies , that shows their passion and loyalty to our scene. Move on now Majy , there's a good lad...
  12. I see that you list one of your hobbies as fishing. Quite apt.

    I was still going when it started opening at 12 , but we used to go on the beer in Burnley and catch our weekly minibus from L and T taxis , so I suppose we were lucky to miss the Wigan yobs. Mind you , they were probably the lucky ones looking at some of the guys that got in that minibus from Burnley!

    Don't forget that the pubsshut at 11pm in those days and the casino didn't open until 2am , so not many had a pint in Wigan before going to the casino.

    I live 200 yards from Moorhouses brewery in Burnley. I can often smell the brewery as I take the dog out. Burnley is seeing an explosion of real ales in most of the pubs and you can have a cracking real ale pub crawl in the town centre. Avoid the night club style bars though. I will be in the Bridge Bier Haus after today's match, drinking Moorhouses Premiership at £2 a pint , with 4 other guests beers at £2.50 a pint. Then onto any number of other pubs most with at least 3 cask ales. Burnley. ...the home of northern soul and real ale!
