25 tracks of pricey northern soul 45s from some of the great female voices. Sweeping strings and compulsive dance beats underpin this collection that brings together Patti LaBelle, Little Eva and Claudine Clark. With obscure gems from Juanita Nixon, Ann Cole, Tiny Topsy and Lula Reed. Plus some storming anthems including Barbara Dane s euphoric I m On My Way and Tell Him by The Exciters. Remastered from the original sound sourceswith sleevenotes by MOJO magazine s Dave Henderson.

Firstly I agree with the other comments here that (both albums) are not Northern Soul, rather early R&B. However what you will get is an album packed full of gems, exploding crackling pieces of magic.
I have to say the hands down winner between Girls and Boys is the Girls. Whilst the Boys generally stick to the basic 'I got this girl.....and she's so fine...' routines, the 'Girls' album offers far more emotional depth / teenage angst. I particularly like 'What kind of girl' and the franky hilarious 'Chaperone'. The bands sound much tighter also.
John CC told me to buy it, so I'm passing on the instruction.

A few good tracks. A lot of tracks I would not consider Northern Soul as Title suggests. Still OK if you like 60's soul in general.Published on 27 Jan. 2014 by Leo Brady
This is not a Northern Soul Compilation; it is a compilation of good R&B tracks that would probably have been familiar to some Modernists of the time. Read morePublished on 24 Sept. 2013 by Sean
