It's June 22nd 1985 - it's my 21st birthday.

After going out for a meal at the pub to appease my then girlfriend, it's off to Top of the World Stafford to see two legendry soul acts Eddie Parker and Lorraine Chandler.

And what a night that was. With tape player in soul bag I managed to record that night for prosperity and today I'm gonna share that night with you!

Click on the links below to to hear Lorraine and Eddie sing their hearts out!

Lorraine Chandler starts the show off - Wow!

continues with I Can't hold On and ends

fantastically with What Can I Do !

and finally Dave Evison's in heaven, of couse it's Love You Baby

Wow! What a way to celebrate my coming of age! Beats cake and candles anyday!
