    Early Days

    I was there with you Gary at the Attic and Billy Stewart doing Summertime was actually better live than the recording and his showmanship was superlative.

    Mexborough [who Remembers]

    Allo just came across this feed am from West Melton used to go to Mexborough Disc a GoGo in the 60s John Wrona (may be misspelt) first Djayed there then Gary Cooper took over and a few of used to do a bit to help out ( Rob Gillis, Roy Dyson, Jeff Hope, Ian Hydes and myself ) i also used to do the warm up in the Miners Arms. Used to go to the Bin Lid and Attic nighters and a venue in Barnsley cant remember the name. Cant remember what artists appeared at the DAGG remember seeing Ben E King and the drifters at the Bin Lid. Edwin Starr. The Platters, and Billy Stewart at the Attic. When Gary took over he turned away from the mainly played Mod Culture and played mainly Motown, Atlantic, Stax Stateside etc even obscurities like Lou Johnsons Unsatisfied. Ray Pollards Drifter, Invitations ++++++ (from line dancing to the Fred Astaires) used to get raided quite often by the DDS ( Rex Garvin singalong used to be I Spy For The DDS ) Have been a Northern Soulie ever since KoKo

    Charlotte Stokes - Price I Have To Pay

    Hi I have put the Charlotte Stoke track up on YouTube - you can download it from there using Real Player. Record info : T.I.P records 100X, - Produced by Barnes & Jackson - Is this the price I have to pay - Charlotte Stokes. Written by S Barnes & JJ ackson. Same both sides. Hope this is of some help bought it originaly from selecta disc early 70s not seen another for sale since, due to the poor pressing quallity It never made the grade have only played it out a few times as it needs a rig with a decent graphic equaliser. I do not have any info on Charlotte herself !!! KTF Jok (Night Owl)

    Ebay Boots

    I have received this email from mischino Let me tell you a thing or 2. All those records you claim are all real and were pressed in the UK. I have been selling them for a while I am almost done, wish I had more. ASlso all those records were unreleased or never on Vinly before until they were put out. They are some of my best sellers. All the dealers tell you that they are not real but they all want to buy them from me. I wish I had more John Manship#1 phoney -mischino. Comments anybody!!!. Jok

    Mexborough [who Remembers]

    Mexborough The Home of Northern Soul (Without a Doubt) I remember the fantastic times I used to have at the Disco Go Go in the 60Ts where I was first introduced to the Soul scene also The Attic in Doncanster, Bin Lid Dewsbury, Sharades Rotherham etc. I used to do the warm up spot at the Miners Arms if any one remembers. Gary Cooper used to measure us for our suits at Burtons I think!. With regards to all you Soulies in Mexborough Jok Evans (from Wath originaly First Issue) PS is Harry Dews still open ?
