    Talc - yes or no?

    You keep taking it me old son and disperse when needed. Like the smell of Red Bull in the car, some scents (talc included) are just part of it - part of the night out. In short, I love the smell of talcum in the morning, nothing else smells like that.

    Talc - yes or no?

    Overall consensus is looking pretty anti then? Everything in moderation I say. Too much can be a nuisance, agreed. However I wouldn't like it to die out either, like hand clapping seems to for the best part. No, looking at your talc covered brogues/loafers on a Monday/suicide Tuesday after a nighter, is a grin-worthy reminder of the great time you had. Also the chief reason for highly polishing the feckers before the next dance. No talc would be sad and wrong and one less thing. What's next? No talking b sides bollix outside at 4.53 am?

    Hi Graham and welcome to Soul Source. Unfortunately you can't be Tyrone Davis and turn back the hands of time. If you could, we could go to the Fleet in 85' and dance to the kind of music you are talking about - one after the other. Times have changed and newer sounds have come along. Though as someone has already said, if you're at a do and you hear the right beat, you should rise up out of your seat and dance. On the point of playing cd's at do's, well if we allowed that any Tom Dick or Harry would be up there and it would all turn to crap in five minutes. If I'm paying fifteen quid to get into a nighter, I want to hear some rare and obscure original recordings. In conclusion though mate, it's a nice problem to have, for soul music I believe (Northern or otherwise) is the best kind of music there is!

    Some car insurance Q's

    Hastings were always pretty good for this kind of policy. I'd probably still be using them if they did Trade policies.

    John silvester wheelchair appeal

    Twenty two hundred pounds in three days! What great pals John has and big thanks to members for their generous donations. £285 off £2500 target as at now. I hope he'll be upstanding and avidly dancing again soon, but at least this will help in the meantime. Thanks again.
  8. Wanting to raise awareness for a wheelchair fund for John Silvester. John had a bad car accident not long back and has lost the use of his legs. His crappy NHS wheelchair is a real discomfort and a pain. We're currently 575 sheets away from getting him a nice one. I Hope John will be back to his usual dancing self again before too long. In the meantime, this will help him greatly. https://www.gofundme.com/tnb5nh-john-silvester-wheelchair-appeal Hopefully members can help us reach our target. (Please feel free to move to front page news item - thanks).

    Unlikely record finds...

    Was en route to a Yellow Pages ad sales interview in Surbiton in Surrey in the late 80's. I popped into Oxfam in the High Street beforehand and managed to pick up a copy of Ann D'Andrea don't stop lookin'. Like Dayo's scenario in post # 1, it was the only decent record in the shop (and yes, still got it).
  11. Backdrops and one black glove wearing came from Alvin Cash & the Crawlers performance at the Wheel in 67'.
  12. Yes looking on the bright side, maybe they'll go the whole hog and have a dab and be talking bollix outside about Troy Dodds b sides at 4.23 am (chewing). :-)
  13. Levanna love, best not show yer face again eh (ever).
