Harmless are proud to announce that we will be issuing the soundtrack to the film, “Northern Soul” directed by Elaine Constantine. Early viewings confirm that “Northern Soul” will be the most accurate portrayal yet of this legendary musical movement which started in the north of England in the late 1960s and has now spread around the world and become a huge international scene. Since 7” vinyl remains at the epicenter of this 46 year old scene with the original records still establishing world-record prices in collecting circles, we felt duty bound to issue a very special edition of the soundtrack on 7” vinyl. We’ve specially licensed all the Northern Soul tracks from the soundtrack plus one bonus track for 14 x 7” discs, all in pic-sleeves featuring key scenes from the film, together with a specially commissioned 60 page hardback-bound book of carefully selected film stills which has been painstakingly edited and re-touched by Elaine Constantine, the director of ‘Northern Soul’. A perfect collector’s item from what will be one of the most distinctive films of recent times. So, that’s 14 x unique 7”vinyl singles and a 60 page hardback book collection of unique stills from a unique film all housed in a solid collectors heavy-duty box. To be treasured forever. Needless to say, these 14 discs present 28 of the greatest Northern Soul classics of all-time, many of which are making their UK release for the very first time. Every one of these tracks has been a floor-filler on the Northern Soul scene throughout its history and many of the original U.S. releases still command a huge value. In fact the cumulative value of all the original pressings in the set comes to an astounding £35,260 (as valued by John Manship in July 2014). A ‘must-have’ purchase for anyone who is interested in British musical culture, U.S. soul music and collecting serious Northern Soul music on its original vinyl format!

Didn't see the point of the book I would have put another 7" in the box instead. Would have liked I Just Can't Live My Life (Without You Babe) by Linda Jones & Please Stay by The Ivories.
That's the negatives done, the positive's are this is a great starter kit for any new budding DJ in Northern Soul. I mostly got it for Soul Time and Edwin Starr's Time which are great and love the heavy bass on Soul Time. Looking forward to playing them both on my next set.
You just have to time your buying right as the price yo yo' everyday as much as £20!!
I'm not going to waffle on about how I discovered Northern Soul, or try to baffle you with words so enormous that spell out "Scrabble is the game for you".....let's leave that for the righteous self important audiophile intelects......this is just Northern Soul and if your reading this, then your either hooked or just about to be...!!
This box set is true value for money, 14 brand new 7" split singles, great sound quality, brilliant song choice for each double A side. I know it's a matter of personal preference, we all have our favourites within this fine box set, but they all deliver that energy that pulls us towards this music.
The singles are all in picture covers, each with a still from the movie, as this is the soundtrack from the movie, no complaint there, it makes sense, this box is all about the film as much as the music, adds to the experience and goes hand in hand with the atmosphere of this box set.
The book is the only item to allow the word negative to be used, as it's all stills from the movie, again.
The sleeves gave us connection, the book should of given us the information, a bit of scope for us to relate to when we spin these discs, which in return would of added another star to my review.
Obtain this box set......the value is in the "feeling" and the fact it seems to be at the right price...
Buy 'n' Enjoy
I did have a major issue with the price because I pre-ordered at £82.99 only to find today that they're selling it for £19 less at £63.95 - I contacted customer service as they are issuing a refund for the difference as a "one-off" gesture and it is "not normally their policy" to do so.
