This is a recording of legendary Northern Soul/hi-NRG DJ Les Cokell live at Hero's club, Ridgefield, Manchester in July 1983. Les was a pioneering force in Manchester music. According to legend he played the last record at The Twisted Wheel in 1971. He then went on to a residency at Blackpool Mecca, eventually being replaced by Ian Levine.

He helped to shape the hi-NRG scene in the UK with his pumping club mixes and his 'Castro Connection' column in what was then known as Disco Mix Mag.
