If you search Facebook and check out "Cleethorpes Memories" there are pages of reminiscing of those fables Saturday night and all-day Sunday's when we were absorbed and overwhelmed by an avalanche of of truly awe inspiring rare Soul recordings.

For me this 45, with it's unforgettable vocal style, stands out in my crystal clear euphoric recall of those heady days on the East Coast Soul scene.

A listing in honour of Mary and Colin Chapman, East Coast King & Queen Of Soul who orchestrated those legendary mid-70's allniters, that had hundreds of dedicated Northern Soul fans travelling those long and winding roads to the very edge of the North Sea. The following swelled to unmanageable crowds so very quickly, that Mary hired the Winter Gardens down the road apiece, to accommodate the overspill... who could ever forget leaving the steaming cauldron of the Pier for that near 1 mile walk in January to follow your favourite DJ for his 2nd set of the evening. That biting wind, spitting sea spray plus the freezing temperature change was an experience that will never thaw from your memory.

So listen now why these youngsters made that pilgrimage every Saturday night for year on year.. this was a Cleethorpes Pier anthem!!

a floor-filler that had the place a stomping... and it was all started as Mary's brainchild back in 1973.. with a Sunday all dayer in a small top room in the Winter Gardens..

Todaty the place and the Chapman husband and wife team, are true legends within the strange world of Northern soul...
