    Best Intro. To Record

    Always loved the drum intro to 'Im gonna make you love me' Edward Hamilton and purely for nostalgia reasons 'Heatwave' .

    Peanut Duck

    I remembered seeing it in a sales box that night at the front of the 100 club stage , Im sure it was Ian Clarkes so he must have sold it on Kebs behalf Keb sold the 7 inch virtue dub [vocal & inst ] to Jason Haynes of Bedford many moons ago 1987ish because he showed me it on the nite @ The 100 club . Price £ 100 . Jason has sold it ages ago.

    Itv Motown Sunday 9Pm

    To be fair it did mention the snakepit and acknowledged the Funk brothers and played a soundbite of The Isley Bros track that used What becomes of the broken hearted tune ... I enjoyed it

    1980's Northern Low Point

    The 80s was the peak of my venue going days , as well as being a regular at the 100 club i attended nighters at Blackburn , Peterborough , Dunstable , Mexborough ,Manchester and Mansfield . Remember the Mansfield nighters in particular were always rammed I was totally into the whole 60s mafia thing and thoroughly enjoyed that time on the scene

    100 Club Early Days Questions

    I can remember getting up to the 100 late (about 2.30) in 1987 and the bouncers said id be ok to get in but id have to wait 5 minutes so im standing there and Shane Macgowan walked up with a girl on each arm and tried to get in . The bouncers wern't having it and told him he knew why! With that he just crossed the road and toddeld off down Wardour street

    Jock's View Of Soul

    I have that zine up in the loft along with all my old shades of soul and other mags/zines , these publications were essential reading back in the pre internet day , especially if you lived on the south coast and wanted to keep in touch with the scene in the north .

    Its A Cover Up?

    There was a lot more vinyl to discover back then so can see why DJs would want to keep their finds exclusive for as long as possible , there is no need to cover up records nowadays , most exclusives are acetates or one off copies so why keep it seceret ? Would love to know who 'You aint got a chance /Dianne Lewis' is really by

    Repeat Tunes Played Venues

    I think its ok if a dj is trying to break a new record , Keb was one for playing the same tune twice at the 100 club with their format of split sets suiting this , can remember hearing Jessie Davis 'Hang on in there girl' 3 times in 87 , Keb twice and George Sharpe inbetween !

    Stafford Top Of World - Popcorn?

    The tune that springs to mind being bootlegged too fast is George Blackwell 'Cant lose my head' , when i heard it at its correct speed i was amazed how sped up the boot was
  15. What a beautiful voice , 'I'll always love you' is one of my alltime favourite records ... sad news
