    37 Years On

    Got a phone call the other day from a mate who emigrated to the states in the early 80's . He's over in Blackpool to clear out and sell his mother's home , so we arranged to meet up last night for a couple of beers in Poulton . As I walked into the pub I spotted him sat down with a small box of 45s ,which he handed me and said 'These any good to you'. I proceeded to wade through David Bowie , Roxy Music and various New wave items ,until I reached a small section of soul . I couldn't believe my eyes when My old copy of Gorgeous George - Strange Book was sat there in mint condition in a white sleeve with my writing on the cover .I must have lent it to him in the late 70s and never got it back . The only other items of interest were 70's mecca stuff ,Norma Jenkins ,Trick Shot ,Beverly Wheeler ,Hokis Pokis , and half a dozen northern reissues . Happy Days Steve Mc

    Don,t know if anyone else noticed but it wasn' t the charted version of Native New Yorker which was played . It was either the Queens or Bronx mix off the 12 inch B side Steve Mc
  15. I was chatting to Brian Wakelin recently about what would be played at his mecca reunion night .I brought up the subject of this record and suggested that the re-recorded version could be considered an original in a roundabout sort of way . Brian played it last saturday resulting in many people enjoying a brilliant and rarely played out record Steve Mc
