3.0 out of 5 stars Not what it says on the tin 16 Nov 2013

It's ok, but it's not what I had expected.

Maybe I went to the wrong clubs, although they all had plenty of talc on the dance floor, but they are hardly Northern classics

2.0 out of 5 stars Be warned - this is not what it appears... 17 Oct 2013

I was under the impression this was a Northen Soul album with tracks I didn't have by the likes of Major Lance, Joe Simon etc.

It isn't. It's a collection of late fifties /very early sixties R 'n B sides.

The connection with Northern soul is tenuous, to say the least...

5.0 out of 5 stars Why didn't I bought it earlier ? 29 Oct 2013
By Guy

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 …. :-)
