  1. Hi People, I have been watching the thread with some interest and I am truly amazed with the high horse nature of some of the comments. I can tell you now that virtually everybody on this site unwittingly or not will have some form of bootleg in their box because they have been around since the mid-seventies. I recently was asked to look through a 3000 record collection by a guy who swore blindly that every one was pukka (by the way I traded records for a living for over 20 years during the 70s and 80s) and over 150 of the records were American or cottage industry Brit fakes. Needless to say he was horrified. I have just this week seen a Curtis - How Can I tell her sold for £250 (it was obviously a fake) but had come from the Philly original magnetic tape master and sounded superb. If people think that every record they hear at events are pukka then they are in cloud cuckoo land I can tell you now that at least 20% on most nights are not. There will be some empty dance floors if everybody only dances to originals. This is 2019 - we need to get into the real world because the days of virgin vinyl are long gone !!! Mitch.
  2. Hi Maurice, This is the problem with the old soul shufflers in Halifax. No younger people no coloured people and definitively no soul. And by the way I am a boy of the sixties but this is 2019 lets get real and liven things up a bit !! Keep the faith.
  3. Hi Maurice, Just to put you right on a couple of points The smoking was outside the front door making the room smell like an old ashtray. Quote form the Organiser. SPINNING NORTHERN MOTOWN CROSSOVER AND A TOUCH OF MODERN ALL ON VINYL
    Smokey Room in a WMC on a Sunday afternoon ( great in the seventies but now a little non PC for the majority of non smokers). Having seen these guys a couple of times in the Gundog in Halifax I and others present were quite surprised that the previously heard mix of 70s modern and crossover classics had been replaced with the usual Halifax Salvation fair of the side to side sliding top 500 , which is a shame for these guys because with this mix they are really only ever going to attract the same 100 people who tow around the different venue in Halifax requesting this playlist.
  4. Hi, I am looking for the 7 inch copy from 1979. Thanks
  5. HI People, I am not really one to be controversial but I went to the Twisted Wheel in Manchester on Sunday for the first time for a while and after an hour was wondering what had happened to this once great Sunday afternoon day out. A very safe play list with no modern , up-tempo or anything left field and whats with the suits and hats guys - Looked like a bad wake. Is it me or is this what we are now reduced to ? J.
  6. Hi People, I have tried everywhere and hope somebody can help. I am looking for the following two modern records to purchase - 1. Curtis Anderson - How can I tell her = on Charm Records 1979 or 2015 bootleg re-issue. 2. LJ Johnson - You keep my temperature rising (Ian Levine penned). Help would be appreciated. Thanks Johnny
  7. Hi people, I am looking for a copy of the following if any body has them for sale (please PM me). 1. Curtis - How can I tell her 2. Serenade - Maybe this time. Thanks Johnny.
  8. I was at the Twisted Wheel yesterday and what a great day it was !! Just wanted to ask if anybody knows the guy who was dancing in the white three quarter mac and blue suede cubans because he was the best dancer I have seen in the last 25 years - bloody magic mate !!

  10. Young Brothers - Whats Your Game = 100 MPH Stomper Brought to the Wheel by Ian Levine circa 1974 ! Getting off the train at Manchester Victoria from Halifax in Blue Suede Cubans , tight jeans and a Prince of Wales Mac - Priceless !!!
  11. Jumped onto this topic late but having read through the posts I am now spitting feathers !! As a regular attendee at various venues (The Wheel , Brighouse etc etc) in Yorks and Lancs for many years I am growing increasingly fed up with what I call the 60s and 70s crowd looking down their noses at the younger Soulies (and by the way I am from the 60s and 70s era !). I personally don't want to see the younger people driven out of venues by the constant playing of the top 500 usual suspects. Bring on the modern soul and new stompers for me and lets Keep the Faith long into the future. Without the younger generation the scene will be confined to history under the same chapter as the Dodo !
  12. Sorry people I was not aware the Levine was a no go subject !! Getting back on track Joey - yes Halifax - The legendary Plebs club circa 68 (now revived by Francis OBrien) was allways a wicked night out. The Wheel was different not only because of its never heard before playlists with tracks like The Young Brothers - Whats Your Game but also for the fashion. The train from Halifax into Victoria was a magic site, when in those days of six button flairs many of the FAX soulies were wearing tight jeans , suede overshirts and coloured suede Cubans !!! The meeting point was the Crown and Anchor on the end of Deansgate before the walk to the Wheel - should have seen the looks from your everyday punters on the way down-happy days !! There is still a guy who goes to the Wheel now who still dances in the Blue Cubans - watch this guy move. Yes the Wheel was different. Jonny.
  13. Hi Joey, Just wanted to throw my two pennies into the ring regarding Levine. It does not matter to me if he will be remembered as a saint or a sinner the fact of the matter is that the tunes he was playing in the Mecca (collected on his US trips) are still the mainstay of the up-tempo soul scene all these years later. I was at the wheel a couple of weeks ago and John Kane played a couple of what I call Levine classics and the floor erupted !!! God save Levine. Jonny.
  14. I cant vouch for everyone but the best dancer I have ever seem was at the Twisted Wheel and he was wearing Cuban heels. Not see him for a while but watch this guy move !!
