For those of you dedicated to MOD era / Soul memorabilia / Music History here are two performing contracts for two USA Sue artists touring the UK underground Soul clubs in the mid-60's
The club in question is the super cool, legendary club "Klooks Kleek" based in The Railway Hotel, West Hampstead., next door to Decca studios. This really was the trendiest place in town during those swingin' 60's..
In its 9 year existence the club boasted numerous R&B gigs from Georgie Fame and his Blue Flames, Mike Cotton Sound, Graham Bond Organization, Zoot Money, John Mayall making this venue the hot-bed for British R&B / Soul to develop. The place for MODS to congregate, a destination club carrying with it huge kudos. The southern Twisted Wheel you could say.
Starting life as a Jazz hangout, but within two years the British R&B boom was soon catered for, with KK starting the now iconic Tuesday night RnB sessions. Soon a plethora of R&B artists played at this now "essential" to attend and better still, play at mid-week event.
Brian Augar, Julie Driscoll, The Artwoods, Shotgun Express, Long John Baldry, Alex Harvey, Chris Farlowe, Geno Washington, Fleetwood Mac etc. etc. hardly any notable R&B/Soul artists in the UK at the time passed on an opportunity to play as The KK. Even Little Stevie Wonder gigged there...
These two unique contracts, for 1967 and 1968 coincided with their UK tours. The artists set to perform there on these unique sheets, were Henry Juggy Murray's Sue stars. The Soul Sisters & keyboard magician Jimmy McGriff.
All dated signed and 100% authentic. NOT copies. Wage Guarantees, times and length, dates of performances, all "Subject To Permission Being Grated By The Ministry Of Labour"
Click the soundfile provided, to help you to imagine how The Soul Sisters would have ripped up the place, with their two latest recordings "Good Time Tonight" or "Think About The Good Times" a dynamic duo with a reputation for roof-removing performances.
Or indeed how Jimmy McGriff's keyboard wizardry ignited a packed room of MODS on a chilly Tuesday night 30th. January 1968.
These are essential "framers", side by side in your record room. A testament of MOD history not only for the two artists involved but also for the history oozing from these sheets of paper covering a cornerstone of London MOD culture.
