  1. If you click on the link below it has Numerous comments ref blue eyed soul - however one thing I certainly didn’t know was R&B replaced the term used at the time “race music” Mike ErricoJuly 11, 2016 Interpretations of “blue,” as in “sad,” date as far back as 1385, and Chaucer’s poem, The Complaint of Mars. In the late 1940s, Jerry Wexler, a white Billboard writer who later became a partner at Atlantic records, coined the term “Rhythm and Blues,” or “R&B,” to replace the then-used term “race music.” In effect, R&B became a blanket genre for black artists, and the convention has largely remained today. https://www.digitalmusicnews.com/2016/07/08/blue-eyed-soul-hate-phrase/
  2. mid 60ts 64/65 Blue-eyed soul (also known as white soul) is rhythm and blues and soul music performed by white artists. The term was coined in the mid-1960s, to describe white artists who performed soul and R&B that was similar to the music of the Motown and Stax record labels. https://en.m.wikipedia.org › wiki

  4. In these present times of apparently - doom and gloom - just thought I would put this up and remind those who went what a major effect it had on our lives - as well as the good times in those "who gives a F%$K years" of growing up - I started to go to the Casnio in 75 till the end, so cant say I was there at the beginning - but thanks for the memories. Wigan Casino was the name of the last incarnation of a Wigan ballroom called the Empress. Local DJ Russ Winstanley and Wigan Casino manager Mike Walker approached lease owner Gerry Marshall to run all-nighters. Walker brought Winstanley, who had a DJ set at the local rugby club, to the Casino Club. At 2am on Sunday 23 September 1973, Wigan Casino started its first ever Northern soul all-nighter, with Winstanley as the DJ. After Winstanley and his helper Ian Fishwick, Kev Roberts was the third DJ at Casino all-nighters, who was quickly joined by Richard Searling[3] Soul performers that performed there include Jackie Wilson, Edwin Starr and Junior Walker. Young people from all over the UK regularly attended Wigan Casino to hear the latest northern soul artists and to dance. There were long queues to get in. The second dance floor, Mr M's, stayed open until 06:00 and played oldies songs from a variety of DJs including Dave Evison and Steve Whittle. All-nighters generally ended with three songs that became known as the '3 before 8': "Time Will Pass You By" by Tobi Legend, "Long After Tonight Is All Over" by Jimmy Radcliffe, and "I'm on My Way" by Dean Parrish. Parrish is still active on the Northern soul circuit. Wigan Casino's 500th all-nighter was held on Saturday 16 May 1981, from 12:00 to 08:00. Wigan Council owned the building and wanted to extend the nearby Civic Centre, but short of funding, it never went ahead.[citation needed] The club closed on 6 December 1981; that final night of Wigan Casino in its Northern soul state was DJ'd by Winstanley, and the '3 before 8' were played three times consecutively at the end of the night. The crowd refused to leave; according to Winstanley, to "break this spell of hysteria", he picked a 7" at random from his box and played that. This final Wigan Casino song became one of the most famous Northern soul songs of all time, Frank Wilson's "Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)".[citation needed] Annual reunions are held in Wigan hosted by the original DJs.

  7. Classic Motown Northern sound - never understood why is midtempo dancer with great spinning and clapping sections was never played out more - late 60ts early 70ts classic soul - smokey at his best
  8. Tempest - I had to add this so you have Russ knocking out pressings being advertised - and RS asking for it to be curtailed in the same article - well it made me smile
  9. Back in the 70ts never had my DMs taken off me, but the old bill would stand on the toe to see if they were steel cap - if they were they would take ur shoe laces out - some of the older lads were clever enough to have a spare set with them
