Baby earl reacted to pilgrimsoul in Nottingham Palais All- Nighter
Well after much anticipation a massive let down.What's the point in having two rooms that are playing the same music ? The beer prices were extortionate (I know the promoters can't control this) when they actually had some and the venue was not conducive to a Northern soul night,totally unrecognisable from the original,IMHO.There was the odd track that got my feet moving but all in all it was the same old top 500.Sam started his set well with Sam Williams then Al Williams but even he deteriorated after that and Mick H played the odd different track but no one really put together a set to keep the floor packed.We had a mini bus and a few were staunch oldies fans and even they felt let down.I don't like having a go at promoters as I know what a difficult job it is but surely a bit of variety is required in this day and age.

Just want to say thanks to Joe and the rest of the crew for a cracking night with top notch sets from all of the dj,s. Not a bad tune all night and a great atmosphere, it was good to see a packed house and well worth the trip.
