I was thinking about the olden days and was wondering if anyone remembered going to Crackers on Oxford Street London in the mid 70's? I used to go on a Monday night, it was supposed to be Northern Soul but was mostly Jazz Funk. It was free entry and really enjoyable. Also in the 70's I spent alot of time at the Olde E in Matlock. Did any readers go there? Tuesday and Friday nights were my favourites as they were mainly Northern Soul. We used to get quite a few people from the Nottingham and Sheffield areas. Thanks to the Olde E for my love of Northern Soul. My favourite records in those days were Love You Baby - Eddie Parker, Laws Of Love - The Volcanoes and Wanting You - April Stevens. It was like a dream actually seeing Eddie Parker singing that record at Prestatyn a few years ago.
What a good night at Barrow Hill despite the Guest DJ Little Tony from Rotherham failing to attend. Stuart and Keith both played great spots to componsate. The attendance was good and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, thank you to all who came. Our next night will be September 1st and the Guest DJ is Mark Hopes who is one of my favourites so I can't wait for that. Hope to see you all next month.
