Time for another Casino tape and this one is a very rare one. This tape is from October 1973, the earliest Wigan tape in existence as far as I know, just a month into the Casino's lifespan. The playlist is pretty much as to be expected, mainly comprising records from The Cats, The Torch and places like Va Va's. Much of the tape was cut to pieces where the original taper started recording then changed his mind. Tracks I had to cut off this tape included Terrible Tom, Jr Walker (I Ain't Goin' Nowhere), Morris Chestnut, Freddie Chavez and Lou Ragland (I Travel Alone). Very interesting to see LOU RAGLAND in there though, I had no idea until today that this was spun and then dropped for 3 or 4 years.
It's a fabulous tape, usual mono quality, great atmosphere and the clapping during Mike Post Coalition is spine tingling. You'll wish you were there - I did!
DJ's are cut from the tape mainly but I can definitely hear Martyn Ellis and probably Richard Searling.
