Recently a few enthusiasts of this era have contributed to a thread about the playlists and music that were part of the seventies era at Blackpool Mecca.It has produced some very interesting results and memories from this period.Even though I was involved for many of these years it it remarkable what you forget as an individual as you get older.By the the same token other peoples memories can trigger latent tunes and episodes that you can then recall and share again.This period for me was a very exciting time because of the sheer explosion of music coming from all direction on 7″ singles,LP’s and 12″.As has been well documented the majority of 60’s soul played through this period by myself and Ian Levine was accumulated from Ian’s own vast collection fuelled by his families holidays in Miami and later New York and of course John Anderson at Soul Bowl.The legacy of these two people was and still continues to be critical in the development of Northern & Modern Soul in UK clubs.Because this is a mammoth periiod and task to create anything close to a definitive article and listing on this subject I nwould ask you to e-mail me on colincurtisconnection@googlemail.com if you have any corrections,opinions,listings,memories,questions or criticisms on this subject.I will try to get back to you all individually as well as add any relevant information to this article.Pictures would also be welcome as well as memories of those heady days and alldayers at Manchester Ritz,Nottingham Palais,Birmingham Locarno,Tiffanys Newcastle,Halesowen Tiffanys,Darwen Tiffanys, Sale Mecca,Coalville Tiffanys etc
I would like to thank everyone for their contributions,current and in advance.
Here is a listing following some painstaking work done by Dave K otherwise known as Mel Bratt on Soul Source a Mecca stalwart back in the day.

CHRISTINE ADAMS – “Loneliness Is Always Around” (CYCLONE) WE THE PEOPLE – “(Only) One Of A Kind” (MAP CITY) The listings below date only from the period AFTER the Highland Room playlists began to shift toward a high proportion of new releases, (which is what personally attracted me to attend the Mecca after mid-74) A more comprehensive listing of rare 60s recordings played in the period 1970-1974 is featured in the broader ‘Northern Soul’ playlists that proceed this one, and which it is hoped will ultimately include the wide variety of music featured at MANY UK venues, not just Blackpool. The information is taken from a variety of sources including ads in B&S, the Dave Godin & Frank Elson’s columns, DJ interviews, ‘Live’ tapes etc.etc. This will be added to substantially in due course (hopefully). The first section (February-August) includes notable Highland Room spins played during that initial transitional period, most of which continued to be popular for several months afterwards. The Carstairs (listed as being played between C.Feb. and Nov.1974) is used as a convenient link between the two periods, nothing more. IT IS NOT MY INTENTION TO ARGUE WHO “FIRST PLAYED” A PARTICULAR RECORD!, just an attempt to list them in some kind of chronological order of play.
