There's loads on YouTube mate, sometimes you have to put the artist first, or then again the title.I'm with you all the way....Well into prog rock etc etc but there is something fresh and basic about Northern Soul, love watching the dancing but never dared make a tit of myself. The fashion and everything that surrounded it was great, cant see it dying out, even the yoofs are cottoning on to it. Still try and find a few really old classics on youtube but sadly most it was too early or unknown for t'interweb.
Pick a tune you can't remember the artist but you can remember the title and let's say it's a popular 'song title',
"I can't help loving you!"
You'll get Tom Jones
Someone doing their own cover, then eventually you'll get Paul Anka.
It's amazing how much of the ultra rare stuff is on there.
I moved on in 76 to the more modern New York / Salsoul/ Latin beat, eventually getting into modern soul and rare groove.
I always kept an eye on the NS scene and supported small venues when mates were trying to launch a night.
I can hear something new now and it's either brilliant or shite.
But one mans meat etc.
But please don't anyone put KTF or KOKO.
We never said those things, the patches did.
By the way, probably one of the greatest intros to a dance record.
