Sad fact that Jimmy Radcliffe never got to see that his song would achieve such cult status. He died of kidney failure,after 2 operations, just 36 years old in 1973. Wigan Casino opened it's doors for the first time for Northern Soul just 2 months later!

Not rare soul but beautiful soul. How can anyone fail to love this. The late great Teddy Pendergrass.
I recently watched the bio doc about him ... If you don’t know me by now. Fantastic programme ... possibly on iPlayer.

That really is a tremendous tune. The intro' , the build up layer upon layer & then Teddy's vocal. " I can remember planning"

Northern Soul DJs. Some of them still do the rounds. About 5 years ago at a Northern Soul Night at Far Cotton WMC Russ Winstanley did a set ... I have to say I thought it was poor. It was as though he was trying to educate us with the rarest soul he could find. And there’s a reason some soul is rare. It was a same because a young woman before him had nailed it.

By contrast Kev Roberts did a set in Kettering and it was the best couple of hours of soul you could wish for.

I also went to a great night at the Spinney Hill WMC I think set up by the Leicester Scooter Club and they had a couple of named DJs there. Great night but drink was involved so I can’t remember who they were.

I hope when things are ‘back to normal’ the soul resurgence continues. Be nice to get back to one of Fitzy’s soul nights at the KP.

You probably already know that I love this one

Come on Train reminds me of the floor bouncing at Coalville Tiffs. I don't know who the DJ was but he always played 5 together and it seemed like everyone was waiting for the change in style because the place would be enigised. The 5 were.

Come on Train
I'm Shaft - RB Freeman
The Bottle. - GSH
Does any one know what time - Chicago

and my minds gone blank on the 5th even though I've got the vinyl somewhere. It'll come !!
