    Record in Retention at Post Office??

    Sent a valuable 45 to a buyer in Germany recently and using the royal mail tracker it was showing in Lochowo which is in central Poland, then it went further into Poland to another depot at Strickow and twice more between these 2 places. ( good job I packaged it up robustly ) Royal mail said they couldn't help until it is over a month but I sent an email to German delivery partner . They replied and record got to destination 2 days later only for it to be undelivered and held !! Buyer finally got the record 3 weeks later and all ok thank god Royal mail were frigging useless.

    What’s the most you’ve paid for a record

    Most I've paid was a tenner for Frankie beverly if that's what you wanted on sassy in 1977 at lilleshall near the Welsh border where the England team used to train ( I was there on a weeks table tennis coaching ) Found the lad I bought it off and his mates rummaging through our rooms the next day looking for it ( got sent home early for what happened to them ) Still got the record and in great condition Neal

    ### Parklands Northern Soul Club ### 5th Anniversary

    Had a fantastic night at parklands with some brilliant music yet again, this time the family. And a Dance floor to die for ! Neal.
  5. I'm from Donny but only a bairn in the 60s but the attic changed names a few times in the 70s and was known as the club where the best music was played. There were others that played more Mod & club stuff like the Top Rank and in the late seventies the " outlook " and " kings head " had soul nights . My top donny northern club ( apart from Toll-bar youthie ) was the Bentley comrades club where I heard the latest tunes and cut my teeth on the dance floor. Still can't remember who the DJ was but bought most of my records there ! Neal

    The Solid State – Rainy Night All Over

    Hi, I'm sure i have this somewhere, I will find it tomorrow and send pics/conditions. Neal.
  8. Got to be Darrell banks for me. Was one of my first 45s I bought and still play it regularly at home. It's the raw sound for me and as good as JJs version is I still prefer Darrell's version. Neal

    earliest youth club memories

    Ed, you might know Nip larner, & Terry lorriman who used to bring some of my early northern records back from various places including the casino I think in the late 70s as I think they used to frequent Gainsborough youth clubs at the time ? Neal.
  12. In death as in life, going round and round and getting nowhere ! !

    earliest youth club memories

    Those were the days at Toll-bar youth club in donny ( 1972 - 1980 ) with the regular fights between the local mods/skinheads against the bikers/greasers all against a backdrop of these tunes : skinhead moon stomp - Symarip spirit in the sky - Norman greenbaum ghost in my house - R Dean Taylor love on a mountain top - Robert knight backfield in motion - Mel & Tim Romeo & Juliet - the reflections like Adam & Eve - the reflections better use your head - little Anthony plus the usual batch of Motown interspersed with slade/T-rex/candi staton etc.................. it didn't matter what was played as only the girls danced ( the lads would have got filled in if they tried back then ) ! I think the DJ only had about 25 records so he rotated them through the night Lol . I took over the decks in 1977 and started to play some northern soul and some classic soul such as edwin starr/Otis Redding/Al green as well as some jazz funk And the lads did practice their dancing by now before going off to the Top Rank and later Rotters in town ! Great times but I didn't know it back then Neal.
  14. Do we know what price was paid for the test press ? Or was that already posted elsewhere and I missed it ?

    Memorable DJ set

    Dave Jowett did an hour at the Parklands in Donny about 6 months ago and I was talking about it for ages afterwards . Some classic oldies, plus a couple that I didn't know but kept the Floor full for his whole set, so much so that I kept dancing even when I wanted ( needed ) to sit down !! Made my night. Neal.
