    Help With Lost Record...

    Do it all the time - misplace / leave in mailers for transfer to sleeving / don't make notes of sales / wrong cardboard outers (title /artist) / find stuff I forgot I had in obscure boxes / places. Was asked whether I had a sales box with me as usual at a local gig - replied 'No - last time I was here someone lifted a sound' - really what was that came the reply - told him - 'you sold it to me after the usual haggle' came the reply - It all came flooding back - apologies and a drink Time to get back in the loft - found a Deletts and Triplettes last rummage through the glory hole

    first three records to start a set

    Sounds being played multi times a night was the staple diet back in the early 70's and only fell into disrepute as the library of sounds discovered increased almost beyond belief. The comment ' everything's been discovered ' was often heard even in the early 70's, in fact probably more so only for us to realise that there appeared to be an unlimited source out there. There will be gigs this Christmas which will bring out the crowd that still thinks it all ended in 74 and 1st 3's will be doctored accordingly - my local crowd do not remember me banging out Professionals/George Blackwell / Vel-vets in 72 but they do remember Determination/Here I go again/I've got something good - so who are you playing for - yourself or the paying punters. I used to be vilified by the Notts mafia ( they know who they are ) at the Brit in the 90's for playing 'all that rare shit' - Milton James / Tempos / Eddie Whitehead / Ray Agee / Timmie Williams - whilst being ignored for playing Jimmy Mack / Peoples Choice / Volumes / Masqueraders and positively lauded for playing 7day fool / our love will grow / He's all I got - So all the 'rare shit' went to Chaddy/ Kenny and the Willinghams by 97 So this Christmas the 1st three will be to hook the floor - still not decided what they will be - follow on sounds to hopefully continue this - even less idea what they will be and continue to a triumphant climax with a packed floor - absolutely no idea what they will be - well I do but telling would open my spot up to being compromised by earlier DJ's

    first three records to start a set

    Never yet in 50yrs of DJ'ing managed to get to the 3rd sound without changing my mind and going in a different direction. Starting back in 68 at our school lunchtime disco and 70 at our local soul club, well actually it wasn't but Kev Hall and myself turned it into one. Being open 5 nights a week came as a double edged sword - Weds - Thurs - allowed slow nights to break stuff - Eddie Ernie / Professionals / George Blackwell / Steinways / Natural Four / Vel-Vets to name but a few but always the commercial pressure from the management to keep the floor going - Unknowns tolerated as long moans from punters kept to a couple a night but 1st 3 was a moving feast dependent on what was in the box that night / week / month / year / decade / venue - remember back then we were not contemplating 50 yr. longevity for any sound - Who would of thought nearly 50 yrs on the latter 5 from above would still be dancefloor killers and big-ticket items, although Eddie & Ernie still sounds fantastic to me ( got me suspended from school in early 1972 for bunking off and driving to Contempo / Blue & Soul office in Soho to raid there record cupboard ) Different view following Tim Brown at Wilton - he kicked off with Ray Agee - shit that's one I can't play - but thankfully that was the only one he played that I had in my box as opposed to headlining at the Embankment where the chances of being gazumped were much reduced. Taking the 'big box' (figuratively - only 100 sounds ) to Thringstone next Sat 22nd - got a good idea what's on offer but taking numerous pieces this time that I've left at home before so will respond to others play lists / crowd in and running order with live act on as well - SO could be Shorty Long / Jimmy Fraser / Fi-dels or Nolan Chance / Ringleaders / Showmen or Exceptions / August Moon/ Mel Williams ( Buddah ) or Ivories / Sam Dees / Ascots or probably none of them - it will be a combination throughout the night - unlikely to be many total obscurities to the initiated but defo for the locals - but were getting there. Why don't we all report back after Christmas with where we were, what we played and how it went. Have a great soulful / successful Christmas Steve

    What's the best thing you ever won in a competition?

    1979 - my young sister is at the Convent school (13yrs younger than me) - school fete coming up - parents on holiday in Italy ( Lakes ) - yearly trip to San Mameti - 10 books of raffle tickets 50p a book - bought the lot as sister is bawling 'mum's' not bought the tickets. Prize draw the following Saturday at the fete - Johnny Briggs - Coronation St. quest star - pulling the tickets - Won the star prize - 1 weeks holiday to Italy - Terracina / Rome / Naples for 2 - Wife was expecting our 1st child so absolute bonus - great trip. Took my mates back to Terracina after going to 1990 World Cup final.
  13. Always good to read John's post's about the chronology of some of our greatest sounds. This particular 45 arrived in Bill Swift's box after many weeks of trying to persuade me to part with my copy at the Torch. Alongside Hector 'from Selecta', Swifty they kept nagging me to sell my copy that I had acquired from Graham Warr at the Cats after he had returned from The US in mid 72 and had it on a hand written list for a fiver with many other great sounds. Little did Graham know Levine was playing it at the Mecca the previous week with a massive positive reaction and my 'is it any good' inquiry (obviously a blind as I'd been in the Highland Room the previous week)got nothing other than Yeah could go massive. The fiver changed hands and Sam & Kitty duly powered out of the Fantasia speakers the following day and was pretty much a Mecca / Fantasia exclusive for some time ( Months not weeks ) Don't believe those stories about multi copies - IF so why did Graham and I almost come to blows when he marched across the floor at the Torch a couple of weeks later accusing me of robbing him because I knew it was already a massive sound. Tough shit hey. I continued to play the sound almost through to the autumn / winter, got fed up with it, treated it as 'played out' and having relieved Hector and Swifty of £22 - every penny the pair had on them + A lovely SS7 issue of the Valentines - Breakaway - valued as so many top sounds at a fiver. So £27 deal - at the time the most expensive deal. Hector & Swifty duly took the Sam & Kitty back to Nottingham and thus to be played in the Selectadisc cellar.
