First of all if this was being marked on the music alone - it would be getting a decent 4.5/5 out of 5! I think we all know - & love - this superb music that, looking thru the tracklisting, yes we've probably come across before am I right?
That's just it - am I right though? 'Cos the tracklisting above & on other buying sites is completely at odds with what you get on the item itself!!!

I'll waste no more of your precious time, the music is superb & the majority looking here will be familiar with it so, I'll complete what should have been done by messrs Amazon, ebay [who are useless compilers of tracklistings anyway!] etc....

Since I have quite a large collection of Northern and soul tracks I was very pleased to find this particular compilation since it contained many tracks which were missing from my collection. The choice of content and the recording quality are absolutely first class and having compared a few of the tracks which I already owned on 45 vinyl it would seem that these CDs have used the original versions.

The compilation is extremely good value for the price and I would readily recommend it not just to lovers of Northern Soul but to anyone who favours black American music in general.

This collection is a mixed bag with plenty of weaker tunes on here, depending on taste of course, but the mix and mastering quality are all perfect. I bought this compilation for the Pointers Sister's Send Him Back, but ended up liking a load of others on the CD like the invitations classic skiing in the snow, the Casualeers Dance Dance Dance, and Chuck Wood's Seven Days Too Long. Good for the price too.

I purchased this collection with Northern Soul 360 as I was looking for a collection after getting plenty of requests when DJ'ing.
This collection is all original artists and includes tracks that I know well and also has introduced me to some new material.
Excellent collection for Northern Soul fans and for new fans like myself.

Although I have heard a lot of these on many other of my NS collections, this is a great triple CD. Would recomend this purchase.

There is a vast array of cheaply-priced compilations available focussing on this largely uptempo and generally joyful soul music sub-genre. Unfortunately, there is a great deal of overlap in the song selection across these releases. This plainly-presented and plainly-titled 3CD box-set from Rhino proves no exception. It boasts a large number of tracks that appeared on the relatively well-received, pretty professional After Hours series of albums that the same label put out in the noughties. After Hours - Northern Soul Masters; After Hours 2 - More Northern Soul Masters, and After Hours 3 - More Northern Soul Masters showed professionalism (and good taste) in the way in the way that they raided the vaults of legendary labels like Atlantic; Atco; Loma; Reprise, and Warner Bros Records for relatively obscure but desirable material from the 1960s and 1970s. Northern Soul: The Collection cherry-picks some of the best from that bunch with selections like: The Apollas' 'Mr Creator'; Joanie Sommers' 'Don't Pity Me', Alice Clark's 'You Hit Me (Right Where It Hurt Me)'; Linda Jones' 'A Last Minute Miracle'; The Marvellos' `Something's Burnin'', and David & Ruben's 'I Love Her So Much It Hurts Me'.Read more ›

A collection rather than 'the' collection. If purchasing more you will find other collections have similar tracks on each CD. As other reviewers have said the track listing is inaccurate on Amazon. It is a pity that the CD is not part of Amazon's digital download so that you get the MP3 version as soon as you buy, rather than waiting for the phyisical CD a few days later. However, all that apart I very much enjoyed the music.
