    Comedy Sale Of The Day

    Had heard 'Torture' seemed to be going up in price - those Kent first issues now seem quite collectable and it was the original release of the record think '86 time. Mind you 54 quid a bit extreme - I was thinking 10 to 15 fair enough. Records eh :-)

    Cheers Benji - is Carver a reissue label? Sorry a bit out of touch as in the Philippines and don't get home too often I'm afraid.

    Comedy Sale Of The Day

    On Ebay its a bit hit and miss I find. Had to pay 23 quid ($36) for an Inferno Copy of Frank Beverly If that's what you wanted (hoping for a tenner!) ...yet got a copy of Al Gardeners Sweet Baby (Googa Mooga - great name!) and Willie Hightower for US $30 a peice, swings and roundabouts.

    Comedy Sale Of The Day

    I can relate to that as feel the same way..though I suppose the Narbay is worth a few quid considering the price of the US orig. Milton Wright I must belong to you must be good value though at 6 -8 quid considering its the only legit release? I know it came out on something else but weren't they just boots given to DJ's to play?

    Was this a legit 2nd issue (Purple or pink being the 'proper' one - memeory fading!)

    Comedy Sale Of The Day

    I bought it because of this no release on 45 I'm aware of though I thought Kent might have put it out as it is on their CD. Be interested to hear Ady's views on it didn't he find it in the RCA vaults (Pied Piper productions?). Actually after the Tempest on Stardust for the same reason - mind you hardly ever see the LP of that - mind you not for 78 quid or whatever it was!

    I remember it got it on grey route. Which was the first version Phyllis Dillon or Shelia Anthony. Talking of a forgotten oldie how about 'The Shape of things to come' Vivian Reed understand it was played at Wigan by Dave Evison in '78. Ever get played know and/or how much is it going for these days? Cheers Shane - Manila.

    Warrington Parr Hall

    Parr Hall, my Wigan. If I remember rightly started as a Friday niter then switched to Saturdays. Fantastic atmosphere, fav story getting my younger brother (15 yrs old) to go up to Pat Brady and ask for 'Treat me like a man' the old cover up name for Trick me, Treat me - Cobblestone. Our kid only knew it from an old Wigan tape. Pat asked him if he meant 'Trick me treat me' but my brother being 15 insisted it was 'Treat me like a man'. Back he came so we sent him back up to request the tune then Pat politely told him that was what it had been called when covered up 10 years previously. Brother looks down to see us lot pissing ourselves. Mind you fair play to Pat who clocked what was happening he played it. Great atmosphere, great sounds, great people. Remember they had a dayer couple of years after it stopped being a niter and opened up the back bar they had never had opened during the time it was a niter, could have have done with that open during the Edwin Starr nights etc. Cheers Shane - Manila.

    Northern In Jordan?

    I know this isn't much use now but actually there has been a Northern Soul Night held in Saudi Arabia, actually three. During 92 - 93 myself and a guy called Mick Howard (preston area) organised these at the British Aerospace compounds. Wasn't too difficult just pitched up and said we wanted to do a Soul and Motown party, banged up a few posters and away we went. The Last one we did at BA2 compound was packed we had to turn people away. Most of the material was Motown as Goldmine etc were just getting off the ground with CD's. Though every other track was off the Up All Night Cd's which I think must have been one of the first Northern Soul CD's produced. Remember people coming up and asking about Don Thomas C'mon Train when we played it. Moved on in 93 to the Philippines where I've lived ever since and yes we have Northern Soul nites here every three or Four months. Last year has Chris lalor and Dave Burton in attendance and doing spots. Every Saturday between 10 a.m and 12 noon (UK time) now involved in co-hosting a Soul and Motown show on national radio here which if you have nothing better to do you can have a listen online at: http://www.rjplanet.com/rjfm/live.html just follow the instructions on the page. Tend to start off with the motown 'Hits' but now broadened the show to play the rarer motown tunes and Northern such as Prince Philip Mitchell, Dee Clark, Kurt Harris, Sandi Sheldon etc. Anyway new to the forum hope to drop in and chat a bit more.
