CELEBRATE 50 YEARS OF NORTHERN SOUL WITH AN ALL-STAR LINE-UP OF ORIGINAL ARTISTS ON DOUBLE VINYL

THE AD LIBS - LEE DORSEY - VAN McCOY - SIDNEY BARNES - ANN SEXTON - GIL SCOTT-HERON - REMASTERED

The ultimate introduction to Northern Soul boasting over 70 minutes of floor filler anthems from the birth of the scene at Manchester’s Twisted Wheel to its heyday at Wigan Casino and Blackpool Mecca and the current Weekender phenomena. The 28 club classics included on this essential collection have all been newly remastered from the original master tapes for the first time and are presented on double vinyl in a lavish gatefold sleeve. The 70s heroine, Ann Sexton, is also appearing at this year’s Soul Festival at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

Club Soul charts the inception, development and eventual commercialism of the world’s most enduring underground music movement; Northern Soul. Born in the post-war city club scene, alive with the hot new sound of American Rhythm & Blues, Northern Soul would evolve into its own unique genre capturing the imagination of the Nation’s youth, seduced by its secret world of all-night dancing, a world alien to their parents and even their peers. Club Soul features hundreds of Rare Soul and R&B tracks taken from the archives of both legendary and little known American record labels. Here are hits, standards, rarities, obscurities, and here are those very tracks researched, compiled and annotated as never before.
