I started reading this book and after a few pages it seemed familiar. After looking through my Nothern Soul book collection I realised it's the same book as 'Too Darn Soulful' which is very difficult to source and expensive if you can find a copy. I'm not saying this is a bad book in fact it's very good and I enjoyed it but if you are looking for a copy of Too Darn Soulful then buy this one and save yourself a fortune.

A great read for soul fans, lots of comments from the people involved in the 70's. Good memories from those who lived through the scene's heyday. The songs, Dj's, clubs, conflicts and drugs are all covered at great lengths. The foreign scene and up to date events are all covered. I could't put it down.

Bought this for a good friend who was housebound for a while after an op. He says he is enjoying the book and it brings back wonderful Northern Soul memories. A great dancer in his day, Wigan Casino, Blackpool and so on, delighting the onlooking audiences, so this book takes him back, loves it.

I bought this for a present, but have been informed that is a good read for any soul fan that visited the scene in the 70's, it does mention Wigan and I will be borrowing it after they have read it.

Brings back happy memories of music scene generally and fills in a lot of missing gaps in my knowledge of Northern Soul. Any music lover can enjoy this book!

Wasn't around for the Northern Soul scene but has given me an insight to what it was like. Its an education to the music and the people involved.
