    Most of the platters will still sound like they were recorded in a toilet!
  2. Had it all figured out didn't he? Fast forward a few years and most of those luminaries he mentions go on record saying the quality and volume of 60's unknown 45's was on the wane. Whilst I agree with him on the stale playlist subject i take exception with his superiority complex. You tend to live and die by what you say on this scene and sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for as you just might get it! Stood in a venue with the pondie boys and a scattering of other flat earthers with no chance of getting an atmosphere going, not my cup of tea. After all it's a 10 Yr period and no matter how prolific it was, it could only be a finite figure. It may have been seen as 'their scene' by some but it wasn't, most people progressed from the 'jet age' to further their education and were just as passionate as they were, more in fact. 'Judge baby.. i rest my case.'
  3. This by Dusty Wilson, re hashed as 'gonna be a tragedy' to great acclaim.

    Manchester Weekender 6th - 8th July 2018

    Solaris juxtaposed between Lolleata Holloway and M'tume, the best £5 you could ever spend at one time, stands against any of the big hitters does that, inspired selection.

    Still as strong, still gives me goosebumps after nearly 40 years, that's value for money!

    Happiest and most uplifting records..

    Always found this to be quite uplifting, great 'rallying call' intro, probably came across it first at the halcyon monthly all dayers at the Manchester Ritz in the 70's.

    All Our Yesterdays * Cutting Edge Comedy Heroes

    Always thought John Thompson should have developed this character a lot more than he did.

    Styrene tastes like chicken, vinyl tastes like tripe and makes your wee smell like sugar puffs... So i heard!
  10. At a soul charity event for alzheimers some time back, a chap with a megaphone at the pre event rally... 'what do we want?..' we don't know!.. 'when do we want it?..' want what? '.

    Didn't Tommy Ridgeley see the light of day at Wigan? Maybe in the latter stages.

    Couple of Old Shifty cover ups

    He was playing this little ditty around the same time, under the guise of Des O Connor. It emerged some time later covered by Carl Fortnum as Tony Middleton, superb track for the dance floors.

    Desert Island Stevie Wonder Song

    Tough call between his original 'till you come back to me' and this killer, straight from the intro you can almost hear the waves lapping onto the beach of your desert Isle.
