  1. I played the Freddie North version of 'Oh Lord What Are You Doing To Me' a few times at nthe Post Office Club. If I remember correctly it was part of my set on the opening night.
  2. Re vultures buying my records. I never made anything less than 100 percent profit on any of the records I sold. You got them cheap compared with what they go for now. If I'd held out for another twelve months I could have made a lot more. Hindsight (pun intended) not one of my strong points.
  3. I may have the exact record wrong but you definitely did play a pressing on the opening night.
  4. Many happy lunchtimes in the old Goldmine 'Soul Cellar' chewing the fat and spinning tunes. Used to love your 'Winner' tapes around that time, put me on to so many good records that you could pick up for a few quid. Cheers, Chris. Re above quote. Chewing the fat Janes just reminded me it was more chewing the potassium. You often came in chomping on a banana as you were going through one of your many attempts to give up smoking.
  5. Don't really get the opportunity to play them these days. Last time I played out was at the Temple of Convenience I don't know how many years back. I did two sets there and my father-in-law was at the last one! Most of my vinyl is reggae now, 5,000 7's, 700 12's, 150 10's and about 1,000 lp's. You won't find the O.V. Wright on a 7 it was only available as a track on his first BackBeat album. On the Vaneese & Carolyn, and Bobby Wilburn tracks we must both have played them at different times. Did you stay in touch with Gavin and the two brothers from Liverpool who came to every one of our do's. If we'd carried on I had plans to produce a newsletter to hand out at the shop and to make the last hour an r&b slot. Finish the night off on a high energy buzz.
  6. My favourite ever set there was an early doors battle of the ballads between myself and Alan. Only four or five other people in but great fun.
  7. I don't remember the Mr Caldwell, Brothers of Soul cost me a fiver.
  8. Chris Turnbull The Ultimates - Girl I've been trying to tell you Vaneese & Carolyn - Goodbye Song Bobby Wilburn - I'm a lonely man O C Smith - Colour him father Willie Hutch - I like everything about you Just been studying your playlist faves Chris. Didn't I sell you my copies of Vaneese & Carolyn and the Bobby Wilburn track. If this is the case then you certainly never played them at the Post Office Club. I do remember you playing the other tracks on your list. I remember having the Bobby Wilburn and the Vaneese & Carolyn in my set for a short while. Probably played them once maybe twice then moved onto something else.
  9. We did get a late license one month. Can't remember which month. Didn't make any difference to the number of punters. If we'd had it from the start it may well have. As for threatening to resign! Never happened, apart from the pressing incident and I wasn't being serious. I know you and Alan often wanted me to play stuff from my collection that was being played at other venues and I stubbornly refused. My idea from the beginning was to establish a venue with it's own identity. I wanted to lead not follow. Re Parkers comment, wasn't me. I'd admit it if it was. I barely spoke to Dean. My thoughts on Parkers were that it was too bland. In retrospect it probably wasn't it just wasn't for me.
  10. It was Dave Hind who said that about the 'Wigan track', I think in response to Phil Wainwright having played something like Executive Four - I got a good thing going, which was out of kilter when the rest of the night was predominantly crossover and 70's I commented on this earlier. As far as Phil's set at the Post Office Club it was on the opening night and even though I didn't like everything he played I fully endorsed it. It was Alan that hated it. Phil was on immediately after me and I was playing to an audience who mostly sat in stunned silence not knowing what to expect next. Alan asked me to put on something that everybody would know. So I put on Sandra Wright 'Midnight Affair' which filled the dancefloor. Then I handed over the decks to Phil with the quote.''there I've filled the floor for you, see how quickly you can empty it again''
  11. Read through this after being given a heads up by Les Hare. Chris I feel your memory has somewhat been clouded by the years, but then you and everybody else who has posted have been to an awful lot more events than I have. Post Office Club started April 1993 ran til September 1993. It was supposed to be our answer to the Canal Tavern, Thorne with a hint of the 100 Club, not sure we really pulled it off, but it was fun while it lasted. We had it booked up until xmas, but I chose to cancel the last 3 because of very poor attendance at the September one. If I remember rightly there were 12 people there, including me, you and Alan, and the majority of them were dj's. The night clashed with some serious big hitters and the weather was against us as well. Shame it didn't really take off. Some of the quotes attributed to me are slightly off. The only time I hinted at quitting was when Alan played a pressing of Eddie Parker 'I'm Gone'. Great record but I had a strictly no pressings agenda. And as for the anti-Wigan quote. Almost right. I played Jackie Wilson 'My Heart Is Calling', Chris Shepard mentioned to me that it had been played at Wigan and not that well received. My rant was in support of that record. I would never play something I thought was crap. I spent far to long agonizing over my set list! Bernards opening sets were always a hard act to follow. Nobody remember Caroline doing a set there? It was up to the usual high standard of all our guests. Alan, what's this about me having all the right records but not playing them in the right order? Remember the promotional tape that I sent off to Richard Searling and John Manship. Based purely on my playlist, Manship put it on his tape list said it was one of the best he'd ever heard. Some sounds I thought would have been bigger: William Bell 'Who Will It Be Tomorrow' Solomon Burke 'I Said I Was Sorry' OV Wright 'I Can't Believe You've Got The Nerve T o Cry' Themes 'No Explanation Needed' Players 'Why Did I Lie' Mighty Clouds Of Joy 'Millionaire' Chuck Jackson 'Can I Change My Mind' Jerry Butler 'Mr Dj' Before I go. Didn't sell off all my collection. Had 3,000 7's at the time. Sold one third to collectors like Phil Wainwright, one third I traded in at King Bee and I still have the other third. Oh and yes I did do it all for love. Don't regret it. Would do it again. Still married to Jane, 21 years in April. Bye for now, the much maligned David Hind.
  12. Saw my name mentioned in the forum after being given a heads up by Les Hare. Been viewing the soul scene from a distance since the late 90's. Does anybody other than the Post Office Crew actually remember me? The much maligned David Hind.
