  1. Best live performance

    Must have seen Edwin so many times over the years, and yeah, he never let you down. Just the consummate professional. If I remember right, he was on at the very first Ritz all-dayer, back in 74/75. The 4 Tops were always my favourite Motown group, and like Ed...
  2. Best live performance

    As you say, funny when you think about the stuff which at one time in our lives was deemed to be unimportant or even worthless. Before I came back onto the scene in the 90s, I really thought it was finished. Never heard a thing about it. During one particula...
  3. Best live performance

    Yep, October sounds about right. Amazing show. Blew my mind. Nice to see that you kept all the mementos of your own particular journey. Certainly wish I had. Really funny seeing some of those ticket stubs with the price in shillings and pence. Memories or wha...
  4. Not so Tired Oldies....

    Probably all depends on what you term as being "oldies". If you began on the scene at Stafford, anything prior to that would technically be an oldie. If at the Torch, then the tunes played prior to then. All relative really. Back in 75, I would have classed a...
  5. That LP would've been "16 non stop Tamla hits" issued over here in 72. Good album, very popular at the time. That club in Blackpool may well have been the Blackpool Wheel.
  6. Best invention ever

    Ikea flatpacks are a piece of pi$$ when compared to the MFI crap in the seventies. That bloody stuff fell down if you sneezed anywhere within 100ft of it. Spent all of my 21st b-day money from my parents on an MFI wall unit for me and the (1st) missus Navy ma...
  7. Best live performance

    The Ike and Tina Turner Revue with the Ikettes, Manchester Odeon, 1971(?). Saw the matinee performance, and its was so bloody good that on leaving, I immediately bought another ticket for the evening show. For a fifteen year old, it was as though beings from ...
  8. Not so Tired Oldies....

    i never seem to hear this anywhere anymore. Maybe because it's not rare or expensive? Pure, unadulterated Northern tune. Ticks every single box. Used to make the floor explode when played at the Casino in 74, and still one of my favourites to this day. On a p...
  9. Not so Tired Oldies....

    Top drawer tune, top drawer group. This, "I love you baby" and "Potion of love" would grace any soul night.
  10. 😂😂😂😂 probably puts a few humans further back on the evolutionary chain than some apes!
  11. Almost half a century on, and whenever I think of that "game" I still don't know whether to laugh like a hyena or vomit uncontrollably 😂😂😂😂🤢🤢🤢🤢
  12. Or, you can play "Freckles" with it.
  13. And that everybody, is the definitive answer to a conundrum forced on us all since the early 70's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
  14. Couldn't have put it better myself. No-one could.
  15. As I said , all down to personal preference. Myself, I much preferred Eddie Floyd, Arthur Conley, and William Bell. I rather think that a preference for those three, although arguable by some such as yourself, does not "blow my credibility".
