post #15181 of 19333

Did all of you guys continue you to follow artists from your youth with their new music and new projects? What about following new kinds of music later on? or was there some kind of cut off point where you just couldn't devote a lot of time to it because of work and family.

I only liked the reggae and Motown from 69 / 71 and did not particularly take any interest in what followed.

 

I absolutely hated anything with 'disco' in it and went on to the  Eagles and old favourites - Fleetwood Mac and Rolling Stones

 

From a young un to an ole fart in just a few years.  I also like ballads and classical

The early 70s was Rock then I started listening to Funk in the mid 70s.Late 70s was Jazz/Funk and Lovers Rock.In the mid 80s started to like Northern,so that went on for a couple of years then Modern Soul.That has lasted me until about 5 years ago,I then went to my first 60s/70s Reggae again(after a 40 year gap)-so the chain has finished off where it started..When I am driving the Radio is tuned to Classic FM.There has not been a break from Music through 3 Marriages and upteen House moves!!!smile.gif

Incidentally I've just watched 'The Culture Show' on Northern Soul. I can say a couple of things. Firstly I recognise some dance moves from the Wheel in '68, so the dancing isn't all 'Bruce Lee' moves. Secondly, whoever picked the music for that programme seems to have picked the best - there wasn't a dud among them (and I've heard plenty!).
 

 

Sandi Sheldon-You're gonna make me love you

 
Earl Jackson - Soul Self Satisfaction
 
The Exciters - Blowing up my mind
 
The Precisions - If this is love
 
Stevie Wonder - Uptight
 
Major Lance - It's the beat
 
The Supremes - Baby Love
 
The Vel-Vets - I got to find me somebody
 
The Parliaments - I wanna testify
 
Cobblestone - Trick me treat me
 
The Vibrations - Cause you're mine
 
7th Avenue Aviators - You should have held on
 
Turley Richards - I feel alright
 
Dobie Gray - Out on the floor
 
Inner City - Good Life
 
The Castairs - It really hurts me girl
 
Gil Scott-Heron - The Bottle
 
Jimmy Radcliffe - Long after tonight is all over
 
Holly St James - That's not love

I only realised last night that this was forty years ago this very week. FORTY YEARS! Where did that go?

 

By mid November I had reached my 19th birthday and made a conscious decision to hang up my 'Bovver Boots' and say "goodbye to all that".  I never lost my love of soul music, however and even did a bit if DJing later in my student life. I did it with a mate. He did a 30 minute slot of Bowie, Roxy etc. and I'd follow with half an hour of soul and so on through the evening. When we swapped over, so did all the people on the dance floor!

 

cerneabbas - I'd never heard of Kippax Debbie, so Googled her. Apparently she was around in the early eighties so we missed each other by about ten years. The Skinhead girl blowing her nose on the utd scarf was older than me - she's probably somebody's ever loving Granny now  ........ maybe even Great Granny ........  .. Good grief, somebody come and kick this stool out from under me......

roytonboy...One of the people who knew her said in one post that she died in the early/mid 80s and that she was in her late twenties then...yes it is strange to think about people that we knew being grandparents of course a lot don't make old age...I had a bit of a shock the other day when I saw a picture of a bloke a couple of years older than me,i haven't seen him for years and I don't think I would have recognised him,of course it works both ways.

I don't suppose that those Preston girls would look much like they do in that picture,i hope that they don't wear the same clothes now anyway.

I have to say that I don't have a problem with getting older except for my eyesight getting  worse,i probably do the classic "it was better in my day" too much,only this morning I was in the café telling the younger ( than me ) lads,to watch the Foreman v Norton fight on youtube because they haven't seen decent heavyweight boxers ,it does sound like my granddad going on about Tommy Farr.

When I saw the shot of the guy walking into the club,all I kept thinking about was Jimmy Clitheroe,an old man in kids clothes.

cerneabbas - I got this from the Bluemoon web-site re: Kippax Debbie

 

"Kippax Debbie was  puzzling, a stunning looking angelic blonde girl............. To me it was obvious she was a boy trapped in a stunning girl's body and resented it. All the stories about her fighting and ability to take on grown men are true. I saw her deck men often, almost as if she had a point to prove. As she got older she became more stunning and was attracting the attention of lots of Blues............ she went out for drinks and that but come Saturdays that was all forgotten and it was back to 'Kippax Debbie'

 

She tried to kill herself twice before eventually jumping off a motorway bridge and dying. She was not in her forties but in her early to mid twenties - we never could find out her true age".

 

 

"Sad story BU. I remember Deb well, especially when she was hunting reds in the Kippax on Derby day, Like you say, good looking girl too.

 

 

"She loved Derby day, as did her brother Tony. Seen Debs walk the whole length of Warwick Road at the swamp (i.e Old Trafford) early 80's with a silk City scarf tied around her head like a bandana and no amount of abuse stopped her."

 

 

Not conclusive on the age thing, but I think she was a little young for the skinhead era.
