This review is from: Northern Soul [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Hi my name is elmo, a northern soul fan for many years, i started my life with this culture in the sixties, this film showed basicly how it started to get popular in the seventies, the thing is this film concentrated on drugs it just seemed that peopel thought that this is what it was all about, yes we know that it went on but i have to say i never ever seen anyone shooting up their arm with injections.
When is someone going to get it wright about when this all started, im 61 years of age i lived in the north west of england and we was hearing this music and dancing to it in 1967 a lot of the music that was released then was from around 1958 so when you talk about wigan, ok it was a brilliant place to go and the music there was brilliant there is no other way of discribing it, lets face reality there more places than just wigan places existed around the north west before wigan was thought of why dont these film makers rsearch what they want to do before doing it and get it right.
Im from southport in the north west and i have to say that we started to dance to this music at a place called sloopys but of course it has closed downed there was also a place called the somewere else club and also the mecca in blackpool we was visiting these places in the sixties and dancing to the wonderfull music of northern soul, so i think we should stop talking about wigan as if it is the only place in the country that played the music, the other places were we went to the torch, and lets not forget the wheel in Manchester and verious other places beside wigan yes northern soul is brilliant yes there was drugs on the scene but not as much as this film potrayed i think the next time a person wants to make a film about this wonderfull music research it properly and talk to the poeple that know about the history and talk about the sounds that started this movement not just the sounds from wigan, i could go on talking about this all night, i think the music was wright for that period at wigan and the only sound in the film that was released in the sixties was shirley elis track 2,4,6,8,10, i will leave this now, the music and the culture was brilliant and still is to this day, this film made it look as though all people did was pop pills and danced and throw talc on the floor to dance on, i can tell you that not all people used talc to dance on and my feeling is that any one that used talc could not dance, you did not need it a good dancer relied on the quality of his or her shoes to perform. i would tell you more but if i had to explain all this you most probably not understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars my soul is my life and my life is my soul, 29 Aug. 2013

The DVD had a lot of interesting features about the scene and how it was, I thought a lot of the music that was played in this DVD was from the Wigan years and a little from the sixties and again in this DVD alot of opinions from people that think they knew everything from the scene Mr Winstanley was true and honest in what he was saying, Mr Levien for me does not care about the scene or what the music stands for all he is bothered about is making money from it, The way Mr levien speaks anybody would think he invented the Northern Soul scene he talks about the imports from America as if he was the only person that could get hold of them well i have news for Mr Levien imports have been in this country from the late fifties early sixties and for me he does not know a alot about the music because he has never once spoke about the original records of the scene that has been played around the north west since the late fifties early sixties, do your home work Mr Levien. Apart from this i thought that the DVD was excellent, Tony Blackburn, Marc Almond and the rest of the people that were in this DVD spoke with honesty, i would recommend this DVD to anybody that loves this music, it's just ashame that Mr Levien is in it because to be honest he just spoil's it full stop.
