Hence , the cover and the title "Northern Boys" was not much of a motivation to buy this compilation , however I am buying almost any new "northern soul" cd ..
But what a nice surprise ! Even quite a few of the tracks I do have already whether on vinyl or cd , this cd made me discover a few new tracks and what 's more important … most of the tracks are not filed only under "northern soul" but also under "belgium popcorn" and quite a few discoveries here , all real fine tunes though this appreciation is personal . A few R&R tracks cannot get me down , my cd players have the magic "pitch control" once a magic for the vinyl turntables playing popcorn , now same effect on a cd …
Definitely a fine purchase , I do need to check this label cause this release cannot be a one of a time compilation , some similar releases must follow , just try a cover that is more convincing for northern & popcorn lovers . This one (so sorry , but my opinion) looked like it was a cover band .. But for sure I am going to investigate this label cause it's promising !
And in case you shouldn't know what Belgium Popcorn is , check Wikipedia PLSE , but do not start chasing for vinyl , you are rising the price for me as well …. :-)
