The Compass Club, Torquay The Compass Club Torquay was the place to go if you were on holiday in Devon in the mid to late 1960’s. I can remember strings of great tracks all played one after the other without any DJ interruptions. It was almost like being in our favourite clubs back in Manchester. Third Finger Left Hand Martha and The Vandellas,Take Me In Your Arms Gladys Knight and the Pips, Ain’t No Mountain High Enough Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrel, Tears, Tears, Tears by Ben E King were among the many excellent sounds played at the time. Such tracks would roll off the turntable, and even after so many years they still feel connected together and often I have played them in the same sequence! We met many people there from London and Scotland.
