  1. To all who replied, a big thank you. It makes interesting reading for me and it's fantastic to see the photo of the the actual disc. I think that my conclusion would be that it is 'one of those tracks' that takes us back to days past, great days, greater nights at the Casino. Oooh where did it all go, chomping at the bit, dodging cops, all of it.
  2. Can anyone give me info on one of my 'still' fave tracks, The Silhouettes-Not Me baby. It was pretty much only heard by me and mates at the Casino, and also pretty much not heard at all these days. What label and price would it be these days. Whenever I ask local DJ's if they can give it a spin, I just get blank looks or rueful shakes of the head.

  4. Much as I love the Gloria Taylor version, which I do remember. It's playing with my mind; a memory of being in the St Ives nighter (others also) and hearing back to back, the vocal, then instrumental, with the vocal being a man, who I always thought was Al Kent. It sounded like him anyway.
  5. Going back to nighters of the 70's, I have a memory, maybe it's a figment of my imagination, but I can recall a VOCAL version of Al Kent himself, singing 'You Got To Pay The Price'. I would dearly love to hear it again if it exists, but trolling through YouTube in the hope of finding it, well nothing, not even a mention of his own vocal version anywhere. So could you guys put my mind at rest one way or the other and let me know if it is just a dream. Maybe some kind hearted soul (no pun intended) could even upload it to You tube. I know it's not the best of his tracks, but it just bugs me to have a memory I'm not sure isn't fiction.
  6. I have to say that I was one of the disillusioned soulies in the late 70's/early 80's, disillusioned with the music policy and the way that people started to filter away from the scene because of it. I look back on that time and find it impossible to fathom why anyone would want to radically change something that the dance floor proved was banging popular. But I stuck with the music at home (wasn't hard, it's a part of me) and have even been to a few nighters in recent years after a long layoff. Although my youth has long gone, it has been great to see the young of today as deliriously happy as we were then. It will never be different I think?
