5.0 out of 5 stars Puts together the cream of Northern Soul collectables, 21 Jun 2001
This review is from: The Northern Soul Top 500 (Paperback)
This book is a masterpiece collating the top 500 most collectable Northern Soul records that have so far been uncovered. Histories, photos and lables are all here for you to drool over. The number one single is Frank Wilson's 'Do I Love You', only discovered in the late 70's - an instant smash at Wigan. There are only two copies of the original in the world and the last one sold fetched 15,000 - thankfully available now on CD compilations. Some of the prices will scare you but the book will fascinate you. During the 80's the movement took a serious turn for the worse, however with the advent of the 90's and CD's, things could not be more healthier. All-nighters abound once more and the original Wheel/Torch/Mecca/Casino goers are returning along with newcomers eager to see what the attraction is. Quite simply, there is no other music scene that offers you everything - from friendships still strong after 20-40 years to dancing that makes all other forms look clumsy, also the willingness to embrace artists whose initial attempts at success were confined to warehouse floors and had to wait for DJ's and collectors coming over from the UK in order to find worthy fame.
