Only if one accepts your precise definition of it. Back then we simply called it Soul, and it included mainstream Memphis and Detroit black music. What became known as 'Northern Soul' tended not to include the mainstream Stax/Atlantic/Motown tracks that had been popular in my day.

The perfect mix now for a 'do', from my point of view, would be Stax, Atlantic, early and mid-Motown (before it got too glossy); plus some stuff from the Chess and Sue labels and other minor labels; plus lots of late ska, rocksteady, and early early reggae; plus a handful of the better 'Northern' tracks.

A question for my colleagues from 'back in the day'. Did you ever notice any difference in the way the police and courts treated kids from different backgrounds? I can remember when a small bunch of lads I knew vaguely broke into a house in early 1969. They were nicked. They were all late mods / skins from the same general area, same crew. One of them was a middle-class lad. The court let him off lightly because of his 'promising prospects at school'. I can remember being glad for him but thinking it was tight on the other blokes (maybe there were other circumstances, but I didn't get to hear about them).

Resisting a one-liner about organs here.

I liked that instrument in the hands of Booker T, Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, Billy Preson and so on. And I liked it in some reggae tracks. But it got a bit too much.

Yes very smart bloke,definitely on the list IMO,how about the blokes in the Champions? ( sorry I don't know their names) ,the young lady was Alexandra Bastedo, my vote for best looking actress of the 60s...got to say that Amanda Barrie ( Carry on Cleo ) and Margaret Nolan ( Dink,in Goldfinger ) are memorable too IMO ...sorry for going off course again.

Is there one song that epitomizes the 60s or the 70s to you ? ( not just M-o-M ) I am guessing a few will say Liquidator, but maybe some might say something earlier or later....you only get one choice though.

You know that reminds me of this compilation I picked up a few years back its all the original versions of songs the specials covered and was released when they got back together.

I would also like to add one of my favorite reggae albums is from the later period The Heptones - Party Time its on bests of lists everywhere.

This is my mate Tom too my right...Tom is 32 just about the smartest lad i have seen on the Skinhead scene today although he does not label himself as a skinhead. The fit and tailoring of his suits are spot on as with all the other small details of this smart Man.

Yes Mate George over Walworth Rd Threadneddleman, He fcuked up the suit in the photo, in the end.. George the Greek Cypriot over in North London sorted it out,

Tom uses George Threadneddleman and never had a problem.

One always falls out with ones Tailor ..I remember my Brother and Uncles always unhappy about their Tailor in the 60s

In saying that George the Indian Lad, Tailor too the Kilburn Aggro Mob in the 60s/70 was a genius.biggrin.gif

Just got to add with Tailors as they get popular they sub out work ..and thats where it goes wrong....greedy cnuts will not turn down work...George over in North London subs out work sometimes and I had to pull him about one of my suits he made me......

You have to watch em...they give you two fittings and if its still not right you will have a fight on your hands...,

I felt most of the 2 tone covers were pale compared to the originals with the exception of "Message To You Rudy".I love the original with the Falsetto lead vocal but the Specials minor changes worked well(and they didn't speed it up into oblivion like so many other post-punk covers)     Lasttye Great pic of you and Tom(not surprisingly)
