Roy Castle and The Vandellas

Artwork: Scott King

from the label:
Recorded in a single take - with no editing or embellishment - King recounts a story first told to him in the early 1990s by James Fry, who in turn was told the story by John Carruthers, in the early 1980s.
Based on a true story, though the facts have warped over time; King tells his version of the night, in mid-1970s Sheffield, when all-round entertainer Roy Castle stood in for absent Motown superstars Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, at Sheffield City Hall.
