Long Shot, in the 60's Norman Greenbaum had a hit with Spirit In The Sky c/w Milk Cow ?

I never did know what c/w. stood for?

Hi guys - here I am!

Lee Dorsey - duh!

C/W - coupled with! Double A-side! Well, I want to just hang back a bit here - I remember it as that, but sometimes my memory plays tricks!

By the way - I'm in touch with Stu and he remembers me! I'm chuffed as nuts! Thanks for the info Craig!

Also - guys the Northern Soul show on Radio Stoke is fantastic! !englandflag! You probably all knew that! :angry2:

Craig - here's a question for you! When did people first start calling it Northern Soul as opposed to Soul? I know when I used to go to the Place in Hanley in about '67, it was just soul then and there.............

Well done Charlie! ( at last!!!) The other animal song Lee did was "Ride your pony"! I actually met him, at The Dungeon in '66 where, amongst others, he did both of those songs.

As for the term Northern soul, a dj called Dave Godin (i think hes still around came up with it in the very early 70's basically just to put a label on what was being played in the clubs a little more north than Watford lets say. (Actually a good deal more!)

Speaking of that, Kev Roberts has a series of cd's called "North of Watford" places like Selectadisc have them sub £5, and on the latest one which is a double (Best of N o W) he actually mentions me as one of the "Old Timers!"..........ive bollocked him for that description!!

CORRECTION......Dave Godin died just over 3 years ago.

I have all that North of watford stuff! I always thought his 'lost hits and golden memories' was a very strange compilation - 'Surfin' USA'?

Can't believe you're an old timer - you just started very young - right?

OK - just guessing but I bet it's the Temptations and if it isn't my second guess is the Drifters......

Ben E King???

I have North of Watford volume one, and inside was a contact address for you to send in suggestions for further volumes, I suggested loads for them (Gloria Jones ,Tainted love ,Groovin' with Mr Blo by Mr Blo, Footsie, Wigans chosen few, etc ) but I never heard a reply from them, There fore I could have contributed to further recordings without realising,as I actually didn't realise there were further volumes, (It was at this time I went to work in Ibiza and there wasn't a lot of call for 'Northern' over there,) And I sort of stopped D.Jing after I came back to the U.K. (And there isn't a record shop round here, the nearest good 'un being about 30 miles away in Ellesmere Port)
