I have a copy of this lp - bought from Pink Panther store in Carlisle in 1995. Was in the days when I would buy vinyl on the cuff. It's been kept in my collection unplayed (Vinyl is mint) and it is signed on the back by all the Venue staff including Mike 'Tricky D' Wickenden (See previous post). Please contact me for photos of this classic signed album. Also signed by the following: Richie-P, DJ Morris , Charlie, Lix (some strange kind of pac-man characters either side of name), Mr Foster (magic marker) - looks like 'Lind, Cheers! Mr Foster', DJ Roppa, Techno-T, MC Stompin' and Marty 'Short 'n' sweet - just like a sweet Eh!' and (Also another MC I can't make out but says 'In the place to be'). Recorded at Spennymoor on Saturday 12th November 1994.

As much a part of the North East's history as The Likely Lads, Ant & Dec, Jimmy Nail, Viv Graham, The Spanish City (Fairground) Oh and The North Sea !!!!! lol. Almost at its time, but not quites as imprtant as Newcastle United ! This album was and is, now even more so very sort after ...... Was offered £200 from a southerner who had never been to The Venue, but had heard of it by travelling Geordies .....and do i dare say it travelling mackems lol.

The Venue Album is a piece of North East history that already is, and I know will be always be.

The Venue Album may not have been the taste of the whole country, but it was the taste of party people from Berwick to Yorkshire, From South Shields to Workington ........... As a weekly participant of something very very special, I hold my memories of every night (that was fully remembered) very dear and The Venue Album is a true celebration of what it was.

The Colosseum probably wouldnt have been what it was, had the demise of The Venue not occurred !
