    Bobby Smith

    I’ll tell you the story about Bobbie Smith and how it came to be played. Back in the early 80’s I had boxes of junk records at my Mums. George Romanis (R.I.P), used to get oddball stuff off me and asked if he could come and have a look thru what I had. I actually used to refer to It as my ‘Shit Box’ coz to me everything in it was rubbish; rejects and totally none Northern. Bear in mind this was late Wigan / Early Stafford time, when the sound was about to change (to slower etc) but hadn’t quite done so. So to me, at that time Bobbie Smith bore no resemblance to Northern as we knew it hitherto. To me it sounded too early, not smooth, no instrumentation or breaks or high points, just a morose ‘going nowhere’ oddity. It was something I’d bought blind from Goldmine or Discoveries magazine hoping it would be as good as the Volumes on same label, but sadly, for me it wasn’t. I still think the same now. Sorry to upset people here but when you consider the credentials... Duke Browner etc it’s poor (Think Volumes, Magnetics, Lollipops, Duke himself etc), it’s a very poor record. Sounds like that we’re always my problem with Stafford; too many mediocre plodding mid tempo records with poor lyrics or no melody or obvious hook, too early, too slow etc, and way too morose. How many feel good happy records did Stafford throw up? Not many. Anyway I digress; that’s another story. So this one summer Sunday George came to my Mums. I pointed him in the direction of the ‘Shit Boxes’ describing them exactly so, and left him to it while I disappeared for a couple of hours to play a game in a Squash League. I returned to find (to my amazement) that George had managed to ‘find’ quite a pile of stuff, including the Bobbie Smith. I couldn’t believe it; I couldn’t believe that someone actually wanted to buy my junk records! By the way, every record in that box was automatically a quid! Incidentally out of the same box he also pulled Jimmy Seals Yesterday of our love’ so that’s where that one started out too. George then went on to sell it to either Gary or Guy I think, but it started life as a reject in my ‘Shit Box’!!! Lol.

    Articles: HOF: Mike Terry - Pre Production Inductee

    I think I can add something to this which may be of interest. Way back in the late 70’s and thru to the 80’s and 90’s I was tracking people like crazy; artists, producers, songwriters etc. I was writing letters and making phone calls like a mad man! I have about 15 files full of letters from those years from many big name label credits; Charlie Calello, Sandy Linzer, Joe Hunter, Sammy Lowe, Jet Loring, Chuck Holiday, Sam Ward, Miles Grayson, Paula Durante, Billy Arnell, Laura Greene, Cody Black, Johnny Northern, Mickey Lane, Kenard Gardner, Herschel Dwellingham, etc etc; hundreds of em. Anyway top of my hit list was Mike Terry. Everyone was trying to find him. I remember many conversations with the likes of Gilly about his likely whereabouts. But no one could find him. Sammy Lowe was a great contact for me coz he had been in the music business so long, (right back to Big Band era etc), much like Joe Hunter who also later led me to many Detroit people such as Billy Kennedy etc. Anyway one day out of the blue in 1989 I get a letter from Sammy with the contact details for people I’d been asking about. I opened the letter and nearly fell off my chair! Coz bang smack in the middle of these other names sat Mikes, with a note from Sammy that he knew Mike well, not least coz he lived around the corner from him right there in Teaneck New Jersey! We’d all been looking in the wrong place! Anyway I then immediately wrote to Mike who sent me back a card with a little note about some of the Motown songs he’d played on. Mike said he’d played on about 90% of Motown hits. On a subsequent trip I visited Mike and his wife on the 10th of April 1990 at their home in New Jersey, and interviewed him. I have 2 x C90 tapes of the interview, which I’ll publish one day when time allows. Mike was a lovely guy, and his wife too. I of course asked Mike the obvious question about whether he had any records, acetates etc. He said not, which was a huge disappointment given that he’d played on so much. Mikes explanation of this was that coz he was a session musician, he turned up at the studio, did his bit and left, being pretty much unconcerned about ending up with the physical vinyl disc; he said there was just too much material to follow up on, as we know only too well. The funny thing was, the only record he had, was an LP by the Atlanta Disco Band which he’d played on, which of course I had less than zero interest in! I seem to recall him saying that he’d been living in Atlanta; maybe that’s another reason why no one had found him. He was an absolute legend and I’m proud to say I think I was the first person from our scene to ever talk to him, meet him or interview him. Sometimes even now I can’t believe I met him, but I have the photos as evidence. For any doubters check out my attached photos complete with the Baritone Sax which became so much an integral part of the sounds we love. The proof that this meeting took place a long time ago is that me (and Mike) still actually had hair lol.
