Information

Music On Vinyl presents the final instalment in this delightful series of four Northern Soul compilations.

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 Wigan Casino, which was active between 1973 and 1981, and was voted 'The Best Disco In The World' by Billboard in 1978... ahead of the infamous Studio 54. DJ Russ Winstanley ruled the decks from the opening songs until the final '3 before 8', spinning bangers such as The Jades' 'I'm Where It's At', Otis Blackwell's 'It's All Over Me' and the beautiful 'Time Will Pass You By' by Tobi Legend.

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

  • Bunny 'Striker' Lee & Friends  - Next CutBunny 'Striker' Lee & Friends Next Cut

    Just when you thought the Bunny Lee catalogue was exhausted a rummage around Bunnys never ending supply of tapes has brought you this gem. Next Cut has a plethora of outtakes alternate mixes and slipped down the back of the sofa gems!!! A fine album that gives you a listen to the studio banter and a small talk that permeated Kingstons music scene.
