Yet another excellent compilation of Northern Soul nostalgia. OK so some of the tracks are very well known amongst collectors and have appeared on previous collections, but even so there are sufficient gems (including my own favourite "She Blew a Good Thing" by The Poets) to mark this set out as being special. It was nice to see "Skiing In The Snow" by the Invitations rather than the more usual Wigan's Ovation, but the real joy is to use "I'm On My Way" by Dean Parrish as the closing track on disc 2, I remember this always being played as the last disc of the night when I was young enough to last that long. Oh such happy memories.

There are many Northern Soul compilations out there but this is a good one with excellent sound quality and a solid track selection. Some of the tracks were released on CD in the 'Talcum Soul' series but with less sound quality, others were spread across the excellent 'Soul Underground' two CDs and others. There are strong choices made from such as Herman Hitson, Lou Rawls, Jive Five and Annabelle Fox that are less obvious selections but all the better for it. At this price you really can't go wrong and can buy with confidence.

A good collection of Northern soul classics. This is a very good introduction to the genre. A lot of these tracks are available on other compilations. It is not the songs themselves but the way they are played together that is important. This compilation flows well.

I am a Northern Soul fan so probably very biased, a good collection but not a great one. I have many compilations of Northern Souls and this is not one of the best.
