I reckon it's around '69 - sorry can't be more specific as I got it from a Flickr page with no info.

I used to go to the tote end from around 78 to 80, used to go with a mate who was older than me and was charged by my parents to keep an eye on me, not sure if it was that game, or when another London club visited but it kicked off like that big time, me mate told me to go to the front of the tote as he was going up the back to help out, it was bedlam and things got a bit close for my liking so i jumped onto the dog track and stood by a copper who asked what the hell i was doing, i told him i wasn't staying in there with those nutters, and had no desire to get a kick in the head from the big kids.

 

Thanks for the link

Abraham Martin and John,  Brown Sugar, All right now,  Maggie May,  Hey girl don't bother me,  Bridge over trouble water, Bad moon rising -  there were loads. 

 

People thought that we only listened to Reggae and Tamla but we were not tunneled visioned.  We would listen to what we liked as we not ashamed to admit if we liked a pop tune (excluding Rolf Harris 'Two Little Boys' etc) as we had our own minds even though we we had our own mould/style.

Nothing wrong with Elvis .  But we would not have worn his jump suits down the boozer.   I reckon his best ballads were late 60s early 70s.  I suppose it was his Vegas era then.

 

We really could appreciate various styles of music then and I think the choice was vast

My missus is a 'Maggie', though I have never called her that - and don't like others doing it, either.

Ahhhh... the memories:

What about the more commercial soul that's not Tamla?

Member Kingstonian once said on FNB:
Quote:
pre-68 Atlantic Greatest Hits compilation LPs, Stax Volt, Tamla Motown. El Cheapo 'This is Soul' LP(12/6d) plus assorted soul items.

1968 Ska and Rock Steady

1969 Reggae - assorted 'Tighten Up' and Pama compilation LPs

1970 James Brown

What I mean the soul that's moving more towards funk.
Tighten Up from Archie Bell and the Drells for example, did it hit UK (or was it too late, it was released in US in 1968)?
