I have found the backbeats series a superb way to get hold of some excellent old tracks, but must say Metropolis Stomp time is one of the best Northern compilations I have found to date, all tracks are lively and upbeat and will enhance any collection of this wonderful music. More more more please.
This one is for the 'Run Of the Mill' Northern soulie. 31 great famous tracks. Something on this album for everyone. If you haven't heard these time and time again then grab yourself a Bargain .this Backbeats series is building into a great Soul collection .For the money GRAB IT and look out for the rest in the series. Well done Backbeats. Reviewed by StefC c/o Leek soul club home of soul since 1993
I've only recently come across the backbeats collection and I have hundreds of CDs but I gotta say this is the best northern soul compilation I've heard in years I'm 56 now and this CD took me back to the dance floors of yesteryear brilliant.
Great CD this one - The Vibrations "cause youre mine" a classic (saw them in Prestatyn this year) , dearly beloved , one in a million, and in the long run are all dance tunes that I enjoy on a night out. This is fantastic CD compelation to listen/dance to in me Kitchen!!!
A clear audible CD with quality Northern songs and artists (No newies/Modern/Crossover)plus you get 31 for your £4.40 cost. If you are not sure just look at the sleeve copied on amazon and 'you tube' the songs to check your particular taste.
i will use the supplier again but always a bonus seeing the sleeve and content first.
At this price you cannot go wrong. Obviously, some lose their power in your living room, car etc. compared to the atmosphere of the dance floor. Personally, I would pay £5 just for the Masqueraders cut.
