  1. Remember great nights at the Fleet around 84/85. Dave Evison playing - 'All your lovins' gone to my head' and Danny Everard playing 'Soft Walking' & Soul Joe Clements. Remember getting the Northern Soul Story 1 LP from Rob Smith at the Fleet a couple of days before it was released. Every hand clap to Freddie Chavez in those days. I had EASC, Central England and Dedicated memberships. By then we were going to the Three Cups in Chelmsford (DSC) with Tony Clayton on a Sunday night. Thursday nights were at the YMCA in Duke St Chelmsford. Another Dedicated do that I think Scottish Mick Love might have something to do with? I do remember hearing the bomb scare plotter did a bit of bird for his exploits? Also enjoyed a frantic time on the terraces apparently, as did others. Great days. Who ran the short lived Ivo Nighters in St Ives? Heard Pyramid for the first time there. Best record ever made.
  2. We have been referring to him as 'Sir Richard Searling' on this here fine site for many a year. So of course he deserves it! Those are my thought Siss. What were your thoughts for thinking otherwise?
  3. Exactly my thoughts. Shocked and saddened. Thoughts are with his family. R.I.P Winnie.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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!
  7. Hastings were always pretty good for this kind of policy. I'd probably still be using them if they did Trade policies.
  8. R.I.P Aretha. A unique soul talent. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XESo86WgOrE
  9. He's only gone and made the BBC News! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-42454767
  10. 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.
  11. 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).

  13. 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).
  14. Backdrops and one black glove wearing came from Alvin Cash & the Crawlers performance at the Wheel in 67'.
