Information

The Northern Soul phenomenon was one of the biggest UK underground musical movements of the seventies. At its height thousands of party people would descend on the clubs and venues every weekend for all-night parties, driven by rare high octane soul music from the previous decade up to the present day.

The four volumes of this series trace the history of the scene via four of the greatest clubs on the circuit (The Twisted Wheel in Manchester, The Golden Torch in Tunstall, Blackpool Mecca and Wigan Casino) and they represent the most definitive, best researched surveys of Northern Soul 45's ever released. All are now nearly impossible, or affordable. to collect separately.

This volume features music from Blackpool's Mecca, where local deejays Ian Levine and Colin Curtis would stir up the crowd and get them gyrating to the sounds of The Trammps, Earth Wind & Fire, Tony Middleton & Susan Barrett.

To match the colourful sleeve artwork the first 500 copies are pressed on blue vinyl.

    Genius trumpeter Raymond Harper graced many records in the 60s. Everyone from Prince Buster to Duke Reid to Studio One used his musical dexterity. Pressed in the EU and very nicely presented. Top draw.
