In the North of England in the early 1970s, a very strange musical phenomenon evolved. Club-going Mods who loved soul music were either bored with the output of Tamla Motown or simply hungry for more music in a similar vein. So club DJs went out hunting for a new supply of soul music. They found it in the form of singles released by smaller American record labels, like Ric-Tic, Golden World, Okeh, Mirwood, Shout and dozens more. The movement came to be known as Northern Soul and though it persists in a nostalgic form today it had its heyday in the mid to late 1970s. All of that excitement and some of the rarest records can be found on this comprehensive collection.
