CAN YOU HELP? SCUNTHORPE NIGHTS

If you can spare, £1, £2….£5 or more towards the domain & upgrade costs that would be absolutely amazing.

Donate here

All this is voluntary and the .co.uk and redirect to the domain does come at a cost but I’d love to upgrade the site plan which will remove the random and rubbish advert pop ups from the website to create a more user friendly experience & also upgrade storage space as all your event photos are starting to build up but that adds another £40 a year on top of the current fees.

If you do wish to donate and in return have an advert or link on a sponsor page then please get in touch. You can email: scunnynights@gmail.com

Myself and the volunteer reviewers would be very grateful.

Many Thanks in advance. You can donate into the PayPal Money Pool below.

THE MUSIC OF NORTHERN SOUL LIVE

The Baths Hall Scunthorpe  on Friday 16 April.

LORRAINE SILVER

Northern soul legend LORRAINE SILVER recorded “Lost Summer Love” when she was 13 years old in 1965.  Now  54 years later  she has been in the recording studios with legendary record producer IAN LEVINE to cut a brand new single ‘STANDING AT THE INTERSECTION’/ ‘BEST TIME OF MY LIFE’ These have been written especially for her after he saw her perform at the recent ‘Northern Soul Survivors Weekend’ at  Butlin’s Skegness which had 8000 devoted Northern Soul fans in attendance.

Lorraine was  invited to appear for Children In Need on TONY BLACKBURN’S BIG SOUL NIGHT OUT 2017 which was  broadcast live by BBC RADIO LONDON. 

Thanks to legendary Northern Soul  DJ RUSS WINSTANLEY  the single Lorraine recorded for PYE RECORDS in 1965 ‘LOST SUMMER LOVE’   became an  iconic track at the legendary WIGAN CASINO in the 70’s  without her knowledge. Due to high public demand the single was re-released on Casino Classics label and sold in excess of 30,000 copies. The track was listed in ‘Blues & Soul ‘ Magazine in 1987 as one of the top 10 Northern Soul records of all time.

This kick-started Lorraine’s career as a Northern Soul artist.  In 2004  she recorded a brand new album of Northern Soul anthems ‘The Northern Soul Sessions’ which  still sells well on download today under the new title ‘Northern Soul Diva’. This  includes her re-recordings of classic track ‘LOST SUMMER LOVE’ her follow up single ‘THE HAPPY FACES’ and her versions of  some Northern Soul classics including ‘LANDSLIDE ‘ & the Burt Bacharach/Hal David penned ‘LONG AFTER TONIGHT IS ALL OVER ‘.

’LOST SUMMER LOVE’ is still a much loved record on the Northern Soul & Scooter scene today  and is featured on numerous download & CD compilations.
