  5. I was fortunate enough back in 1972 to be doing Security at Bickershaw festival where amongst many other top artists performing was Dr John and the Night Trippers, they came on stage at 3am in the middle of a storm I was positioned at the side of the Stage, They were spellbinding lifted everybody,s spirits despite the storm, it was a magic set very surreal and influenced by Dr Johns mix of New Orleans soul , R and B and Voodoo drum beats , There were some top artists at Bickershaw festival but I can honestly say Dr John and the night trippers were the top performers there , I think to see him live with his band and dancers took it to another level, RiP Dr John KR Mick Lyons

  6. The film NS was a decent attempt to portray what was happening at that particular time ,the problem arises because it targets a certain year which when viewing the film is around 74 _ 75 this means the characters involved were obviously born in the years 55 to 59 so the story is limited to a large chunk of those. However it doesn’t quite capture the scene for people who were a older than that pre 1955 or n fact those younger soulies born after 1960, The only way you could get round this which I realise is virtually impossible is to do NS films on different generations pre 1974 I myself have loved NS since 1964 so a period before that and of course post 1975- 1985, 1985 - 95 and then since up to today that way the way NS evolved could be explained and characters who have never left the scene could tell their own unique stories I realise that if made they would have to be documentary style films, but on the whole Elaine did manage to capture a semblance of those couple of years, Oh and by the way believe me what we term as NS was born in RnB clubs and Soul clubs early 1960,s to 69, not after 1970, I was there KR ML

  10. 1 Hi Tomangoes Always rated Julie Grant as a great singer she was overlooked early 60,s by Helen Shapiro and Billie Davis but she was slightly before Dusty, Jackie Trent ect She actually beat Helen Shapiro into second place in Butlins singing contest her covers of Baby Washington and Drifters ingles stand up to scrutiny kR ML

  14. There are thousands of details thousands of punters who know the truth who have heard and seen what happened at various venues over the years they are the forgotten majority , Im not slagging Sam of at all he might be a fine human being I don’t know him that well but I do know that I am not fond of his spots and some of the music he plays and this is a soul forum isn’t it? Everybody,s got their own unique opinion and that’s mine and I will stick by it . It’s nothing personal we will have to agree to disagree, if I had to go into detail now that would be something else.
