    Little Black Pug, Blackpool

    Upstairs is being refurbished into a dedicated NS bar to be opened in a couple of weeks time. Here’s a vid shot during the BPISF weekender in June. Smashing pub. https://youtu.be/QmO7QaOLGMU
  2. Does this one fit?
  3. Damian I should have added that I have zero knowledge of musical instruments ! The first half of this link might help you. http://ondioline.com/ I think I recall Raynoma declaring in her book that it was second hand when she bought it. So it might be a 50’s model.
  4. This was Wilbert Golden’s final release on his Correc-tone label in July 1965. He had moved from 12th Street to 8912 Grand River. Both were his own studios so I assume that this beautiful recording was created in the latter some weeks prior to the release. Raynoma Gordy who was close to it’s Arranger Dale Warren had moved out to Washington D.C. sometime in 1964 to build the Shrine label with Eddie Singleton. Did Raynoma lend or sell her Ondioline to Wilbert via Dale? More importantly could her Ondioline produce the sounds featured on this 45?

    Poll: Version Battle - I Have No Choice

    Myself and Graham Finch spent an afternoon at Johnnie Mae’s house on Santa Barbara in September 2001. When the ‘so called’ version by Audrey was played to JM she declared that she had no idea whose voice it was. JM’s son Artwell appeared later and gave the same opinion. Unfortunately Audrey was out of town that day but we do have another track to make comparison with under her pseudonym Kaiya.

    I don’t think any Dore records were played at TW. Thanks for mentioning BofA and Little Hank. Special times and simple tunes played at high volume. Heaven.

    “Scratchy” was loved at the Twisted Wheel. So was “You’re Ready Now” and “Kick That Little Foot Sally Ann”. I recall telling John Anderson about the latter in his Mother’s home in Glasgow in 1970. He couldn’t believe it. But John never made it to the TW. He missed the incredible youth culture of the Wheel and dozens hitting the floor whenever these three pieces of “shit” played out on the turntable. Oh for one more chance to see Frank New “Booper” dancing to Scratchy in 1970. Those who were there were blessed.

    If you’re not happy after listening to this you need help. The flip is an awesome deep soul ballad.

    Poll: Overseas Weekenders?

    Just returned from an exhausting week at the Benidorm ISF. Great weather, great people, superb Northern Soul. Eddie Holman was sensational.

    One of the greats. Top 3 on our scene IMO.
