Mostly not Northern Soul
on 4 December 2013
I bought this cd because I'm always on the look-out for rare tracks.
Now of course Benny Spellman's Fortune Teller is a top northern tune but let's be honest like another reviewer has said this compilation is not of the right genre. If anyone has been to Oistins in Barbados and watched the old time dancers then this is the era, 2 dancers arm to arm, not how I remember the Casino or Blackpool Mecca.
However, luckily over the years I have come to enjoy all types of good old soul music and there are some very good tracks making the small price paid worth it- Gene Chandler, Jimmy Radcliffe and Roy Hamilton. Of course most of these artists have made excellent northern soul tracks but these compilers need to understand that the artist is not what makes northern soul but the track itself!
I think the title will only serve to confuse any newcomers to the scene.
