November’s Record Club: 1968 – VINYL REVOLUTIONS

grc1968resize

Glossop Record Club is back on Thursday 8th November for 1968: Vinyl Revolutions, exploring the music of this notoriously turbulent year that saw protests and riots on the streets of London, Paris and across the USA, unrest that found its way into the music of the time.

The sunny optimism and idealism of the music of 1967 gave way to an array of different sounds. Pop turned in to rock as album sales overtook sales of singles in the UK for the first time. Some bands went deeper into psychedelia while others rejected the Summer of Love and went for a back-to-basics approach, embracing early rock & roll, Americana, folk and electric blues…

Our full album will be The Zombies baroque psych-pop masterpiece Odessey & Oracle, a flop at the time but whose reputation slowly grew over the years, gaining cult status and finally becoming acknowledged as a classic.

We’ll also be playing tracks from albums of a similar pedigree, alongside lesser-known cuts and established acts that were experimenting with new sounds and styles. And if you’ve got a favourite 1968 record you want to share, please bring it along.

It’s all happening at Glossop Labour Club. Doors open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm and it’s free admission. See you there.

R.E.S.P.E.C.T. Aretha Franklin – Records Played

arethavinyl

Thanks to everyone who braved Storm Callum and ventured out for our Aretha Franklin tribute session. Special thanks also to Steve McNamee for great records and stories. Pure joy from start to finish! A full list of records played is below, along with links to listen to a selection of those records.

@GlossopRecord another top night, listening to Aretha Franklin. Always amazed at how much knowledge there is in the room. Thanks to @SteveMcVinyl and @simongmusic73. Only heard the classic Aretha songs before the live album stuff was ace.

It was a joy to hear Aretha letting rip at full volume through the big speakers at @GlossopRecord last night. If her ecstatic screaming on Mary Don’t You Weep doesn’t get your spine tingling then you’d better check your pulse.

As always it was a great night especially with the edition of Smashy and Nicey.Some fantastic songs played.Thanks Steve and Simon.

Never thought I’d hear myself say that a live gospel album was my favourite part of the evening. As usual, enjoyable and educational in equal measures, Thanks @SteveMcVinyl and @simongmusic73

Great night thanks Simon! Powerful choice & range of records from the wonderful Aretha,loved it!

We’re back on Thursday 8th November for 1968: Vinyl Revolutions, full details on that soon.

Also, another date for your diary! We’ll be at the Crystal Ballroom, Norfolk Street on Saturday 29th December for RIP IT UP, our end-of-year retro disco, spinning a heady mix of Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Girl Groups, Ska, Psych, Glam, Funk, Disco, New Wave, Synth Pop, Indie and more.

GRC_ArethaFranklin_final3.jpg

On Thursday 11th October we pay R.E.S.P.E.C.T. to Aretha Franklin with a whole night of the Queen of Soul on vinyl, concentrating on her late 60s/early 70s Atlantic Records purple patch when she was absolutely at the top of her game.

We’ll be playing Aretha’s classic 1967 album ‘I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You‘ in full, which, alongside the title track also includes Respect and Do Right Woman, Do Right Man. An absolute stormer from start to finish. We’ll also play a side each of her essential live albums – ‘Amazing Grace‘ and ‘Aretha Live at Fillmore West‘ – which capture Aretha in her element, delivering some truly astonishing performances. We’ll also have time to slip in some of her essential 45s and album cuts along the way.

It’s all happening at Glossop Labour Club. Doors open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm and it’s free admission. See you there.

THE SECRET SONGS OF DAVID BOWIE – records played

dbgrcglc

It was a packed labour club for our fifth anniversary session, as we dug deep and delved into the forgotten and seldom-heard corners of David Bowie’s long and productive career, playing live tracks, radio sessions, demos and outtakes to show another face of the Dame. We also played probably the most valuable record ever to grace to the record club turntable, Bowie’s 1970 flop single ‘The Prettiest Star’, which was quite a special moment (for your host anyway). My thanks to Beany for very kindly bringing that in to share with us all. And thanks to everyone who came along.

We’ll be back on Thursday 11th October for R.E.S.P.E.C.T. Aretha Franklin, a whole night of the Queen Of Soul on vinyl. It’s going to be a special one. Details soon.

September’s Record Club: THE SECRET SONGS OF DAVID BOWIE

GRCSecretBowieSep2018_

Join us on Thursday 13th September as we celebrate five years of Glossop Record Club with a special session dedicated to the secret songs of David Bowie.

Drawing on a wealth of demos, outtakes, live recordings and radio sessions, we’ll dig deep to reveal another face of Bowie’s career, with alternate versions of well-known songs rubbing shoulders with lesser-known cuts from the Dame’s back pages.

It’s also the story of how a 13 year-old kid fell down a Bowie-shaped rabbit hole and has yet to find a way out! Who could that be…?

David Bowie has been our most-requested artist since day one, and our two previous all-Bowie sessions have been among our most popular to date. So who are we to refuse?!

It’s all happening at Glossop Labour Club on Thursday 13th September to help mark our fifth anniversary. Doors open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm and it’s free admission. See you there.
