  1. Killer album track, out and out floorfiller yet so underplayed.

  2. A notification from just after the war providing a chance to rejuvenate this thread. David Porter keeping it on the dark side.

  3. Jonathan Ross never had him guesting on his show did he? Can't think why..

  5. This sought after track from Sam, album or 45,it matters not when they're this good. Also briefly a killer version of 'a new day begins' by the changing times which has to be heard to be believed!. Strangely going back to Mr Manship after very limited exposure. Mmm.

  6. Always think of this whenever i see or hear Dan Folger, they go together so well. I was enthusing about it to a friend some years ago and the day after he walked on to a car boot sale and found the album!

  7. Like they used to say about Kent albums, 'hardly a month goes by without a Kent release', same applies to the artist obituaries.

  8. Shot down? Not with something as good as that, that's a keeper. As long as there's folk around who recognise perfection when they hear it, it always will be. If value was based on how they sounded none of us would be able to afford that.

  9. Another gone, some great memory tracks from him. Sadly it's only the music that's timeless.

  10. Embrace it all, there's far too many contradictions if you don't, a certain ms Crawford raved about this before covering it for the masses. Like Marley said "when music hits you, you feel no pain".

  11. I was arrested that night, it was just before jnr Walker live at Wigan, needless to say i couldn't go, when my mum found out I'd been charged she stopped lending me the tenner! That was it for the club night also.

  12. Indeed, Monday's as well at Druffies at one stage, Tues was Caroline's Mcr, Wed recharge, Thu was Norfolk Arms, Glossop, Fri was Druffies again and maybe an all nighter, Sat was Wigan, Sun would be Ritz, cats whiskers, or maybe the Cavern.. crazy days, as one shut one opened, Birch hotel Thurs, Hyde botanical club, alt Thurs, to name but two. I'd have to borrow a tenner every Mon off my mum till Fri, that tenner went to and fro in our house for years!

  13. Druffies was officially DRUFC.. Dukinfield rugby union football club, in Dukinfield of course, superb music, some intimidating clientele and all sorts of chemicals on offer. Never realized just how good it actually was until i attended the main all nighters and found a lot of the big sounds I'd heard there previously. It has been referred to in a couple of the books i believe, a great starting point for me, post youth clubs. Greater Manchester (there's nowhere greater).. I'll get my coat!

  14. Those guys at that time were undoubtedly blazing a trail for the legions who would join the scene later, as for Manchester, i don't think anyone would dispute it's pedigree as 'the' historical hotbed for rare soul, that's using the earliest references and the current scene as parameters. Obviously i'm somewhat biased coming from Mancunia, full marks to the Mcr evening news also who recognise the importance of the early club scene and have always given column inches to it over the years. It wasn't till 1975 that i would attend my first early session as a 15 yr old at druffies in Dukinfield, at that time you needed eight days in a week to do all venues on offer in the Manchester area. So druffies would be my equivalent of the Oaks, only right then to mention Roy Young, Mick Lucas and Dave Stubbs, the three guy's behind the decks there.

  15. At the millennium new years eve all nighter at Blackpool Mecca, the countdown started and I'd have put my house on that being played, on came Jackie Wilson 'because of you' a super track also, but Rufus Wood, never been a more apt moment.
