THIS IS NORTHERN SOUL / VARIOUS (180G COLOURED VINYL)
The UK's love affair with American soul music blossomed in the mid 1960s, with the launch of the Tamla-Motown record label in Britain. But by the end of the decade this passion took on a distinctly homegrown twist with a new movement that grew out of the North of England and Midlands' underground soul and R&B scene. It was here at dancehalls and clubs such as Manchester's Twisted Wheel and the Wigan Casino that devotees danced the night away to up-tempo, joyous US soul records that always came with a heavy beat. Pretty soon the movement had a name: Northern Soul. This collection is the next best thing and it is all on vinyl, exactly how the movement's fans originally heard them.
