September’s Record Club: THE SOUNDS OF 1967

GRC67.jpg

Glossop Record Club is back (after a little summer break) on Thursday 14th September for THE SOUNDS OF 1967.

Join us as we dig deeper than the usual Sgt Pepper, flower power and summer of love, with a stack of vinyl that changed the world, playing a mix of singles and album tracks, and of course, an album in full.

And when it comes to which album, we’re spoilt for choice, with classic long players from the likes of Cream, Love, The Who, The Kinks, Buffalo Springfield and The Mothers Of Invention among others to choose from. It was also an amazing year for debut albums with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, The Doors, Leonard Cohen and The Velvet Underground all making their mark (or trying to) on the music world. It’s from that roll-call of debut offerings that we’ll be selecting our full album to play on the night.

So, relax your mind, open your ears and join us at Glossop Labour Club from 8pm. And don’t forget to dig through your records and bring your own sounds of 1967 to share. See you there!

June’s Record Club: THE SOUNDS OF ’66

grcthesoundsof66

Honestly, it’s a complete coincidence. But let’s call it serendipity…

I’m not much of a football fan, and although I am of course aware that England last won the World Cup in 1966, when I put this event on the calendar a few months back, I wasn’t aware that this year is World Cup year. And more to the point, that it’s the first match of the tournament on the very same day as this session. (Brazil v Croatia if you’re wondering).

But who cares about that?!

On Thursday 12th June, we’ll be having our very own international tournament, as we time travel via the power of vinyl back to 1966 and pitch the UK against the USA. Six (albums) a side, including a fine selection of classics and lost gems.

The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who, The Hollies and Georgie Fame represent the UK, with Bob Dylan, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Nina Simone, Simon & Garfunkel and Bob Lind for the USA.

Vote in the polls below for the ones you want to hear (a maximum of two choices in each poll) and we’ll play the winning two albums in full on the night.

For the authentic sound of ’66, the Dansette RG31 will be making a return appearance with a stack of 45s for a spot of Dansette Roulette, plus Manchester DJ legend Martin the Mod will be on hand to spin a few choice cuts. And of course, if you have any records from 1966 that you’d like to share then bring them along.

Cast your votes now – two for the UK and two for the USA.


As for the footy… Well, if you want to bring a football-related record, I’m sure we’ll find time to slip one or two in at the end of the night as a good luck gesture to the England squad. Such generosity of spirit!
