SOME OF IT IS WORTH CANNIBALISING
on 26 August 2016
I like the idea of a Haynes manual for a 1960's Lambretta,with all the lighting accessories, as cover art as if to state that this is the mechanics of the Mod era. The crash helmet let it down though ( wrong era design ) and Northern Soul is/was not the Mod era. I do like obscure 1960's American soul and these Northern Soul albums are good for finding some of them, some that I had forgotten existed. I downloaded the album, then reduced the content down to just over 55 minutes of reasonably good stuff. That was still worth it for the money. Why a track by Paul Anka was included I do not know. That's like sticking a track by 'The Osmonds' on a rock compilation album just cos someone thought it sounded the same...Oh.......wait a minute....that happened too.
