Thanks Poetsfan. it was Sergeant Pepper's when it burnt down and I think it was the Silver slipper cafe too. It was originally the railway station and part of it survived in the shape of the GCT toilet for bus drivers.

have several Poets singles and a bootleg CD was issued courtesy of Lenny of the Thanes.

B4 perfecting my drumming skills I used to go to the Candlelight Club to see THE ALEX HARVEY BIG SOUL BAND.
This left a lasting impression on me,George Mc Gowan was the drummer then.
Through a drunken haze at the age of 17 I found myself pulling hard on a bannister to reach a venue above the BAYHORSE (on the corner of west nile street) which I was enlightened 2 days later was the R&B ALLNIGHTER CLUB.
The artistes were of course ALEX HARVEY AND CO.
This story could go on and on,but I ended up playing in the band at THE LENNOXBANK SUNDAY CLUB(Balloch). TEENSVILE(Dumbarton),where the destemper on the walls and ceiling fell on everyone when we started with THE BOSTON TEA PARTY!
Ended up in THE BIG SIX from my home town of Dumbarton.
We played 2 years in Glasgow University Union ,backing THE BILL LAMBERT DANCE BAND.
This gave us lots of contacts to the glasgow upper crust and we went on to be a niche band popular from North Uist to Yorkshire.

Thanks for the info Gordon. Somebody mentioned a club above the Bay Horse in relation to a killing by Hugh Collins ( i think the murder took place in the Lunar 7 in Buchanan Street) Anyway was the R&B allnighter club known by any other name?

Somebody above mentioned Alan Fullager. He's still in Glasgow. His former colleague is now Doctor Alan McKinnon and his son Iain was the guitarist in Glasgow band Dresden who broke up last year.

here's Iain

Dexter,
I had mentioned Alan Fullager as he took over from me on bass with the House of Lords, 'Dr' Alan McKinnon played drums at the time and I got a nice e mail from Ian thru this forum (...how did we pick up 'deja vu' in the old days'. Gordon B's quote brought back memories the alll nighter we used to go after gigs was the top floor flat in West Nile st above 'Forbes' the music shop where Lesley Harvey played with the Silohettes and the AH Big Soul Band + Lena Martell along with he fiancee ( sax player think he died of leukemia).What a great undiscovered blues voice Lena has, we tend to think of the TV image. I believe my old sax player with the H of L is still playing along with big Gordon Sellar(ex Beggars Opera) would be nce to contact them again.
As musos are a close knit community over the mists of time, the GGB should have a contact section....where we all are now!!, I know I am in exile in Aberdeenshire for the last 25 tears but still playing:O)

Hi Linda, (and Linky)

The Cryan' Shames got it into the charts possibly because their version was produced by Joe Meek. A lot of groups did it after they heard the original version by The Drifters. It was written by Burt Bacharach and Bob Hilliard and made a good tune for a moonie at the end of the night. I see it's still popular with Scottish bands as The McDonald Brothers appear to have a version on their CD.

The Bay City Rollers did a version of Please stay in the 70's, it was lovely , but there again I was a teenager so maybe it wasnt really nice and I have never heard it again, actually I must look for it on you tube , it is a lovely song.

There's a sixties soul show on Sunny Govan radio. You can hear it on 103.5FM in the Glasgow area or listen online to Sunny Govan Radio.

The presenters read out some of the above posts about the clubs and the bands. They're looking for information about Alexander the DJ at Club Maryland in Scott Street and any sixties memories about the soul records you bought or the clubs you went to.

Where was the Elizabethan?

They read out an email from Ian Seabourne who went to the Maryland on Friday nights in the late sixties. Ian was originally from Langlands Road in Govan but e mailed in from Hong Kong. Anyone know him? And was the maryland more of a Blues/ rock club on a Friday, as one of the presenters said?
