Let me Down!

This is a track I will always remember from the 3 C`s youth club, that I cut my teeth, dj`ing at back in the day. Punk was exploding in London towards the end of `76, but in a small corner of Fitzrovia, just off the Euston Rd, a small youth club run by Catholic priests was in Soul heaven.

From 1973 with the bass line on this tune played by William Murphy, off the LP "At Memphis" on Stax Records. Inez and her brother Charlie Foxx toured extensively in Europe and their music played a key role in the development of the Northern Soul movement at the Wigan Casino in the North of England. In 1978, Wigan Casino was voted the world's number one disco by the American music magazine Billboard. This was during the heyday of the world famous Studio 54 nightclub in New York City, and only a year before the cities' equally renowned Paradise Garage was awarded the same accolade.
