The Northern Soul scene exploded in the early 70s in such hallowed venues as Manchester's Twisted Wheel, the Blackpool Mecca and Wigan Casino, where working class white kids danced all night to black America's deepest grooves.
The 50 tracks on this fantastic 2CD collection, contain some of Northern Soul's biggest anthems and most cherished tracks, among them Jamo Thomas's I Spy For The FBI, Gene Chandler's Nothing Can Stop Me, Betty Everett's Getting Mighty Crowded and many other collectable classics.

What I like about this collection is a well curated selection of huge Northern Soul favourites interspersed with some (to these ears) unknown tracks which have helped widen my appreciation of the genre further. There are plenty of compilations that go down the tried and trusted route, this one doesn't and is all the better for it. One to buy after the more obvious choices.
Let the music do the talking, just sit back and go back in time.
This one I found a little disappointing. Most of the tracks are obscure and it is easy to see why.
A couple of jems however- disc one - I spy for the FBI. disc two - Sweet and easy by the sadly missed Van MCoy.
However given the low price of this collection and some of the others like it is probably worth getting for your own compilations.
Not a patch on the Twisted Wheel collection.
I still enjoyed it and it has bolstered my already bloated collection.

Mainly 60s tracks & not that stompy. Bit obscure & tracks samey. Having said that it was relatively cheap so its only a minor gripePublished on 7 Sept. 2013 by Malcolm Walstow
