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.
There's loads on YouTube mate, sometimes you have to put the artist first, or then again the title.

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
Ray Charles
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.

Life is a web spun of ghosts dreams and illusions.
A mid thread Lavinda Past choice and just trying to break down some moves on our cushion floor. Nice sound.




Read this thread late last night and some really fine tunes on offer. The forum mustn't have been able to embed them back then, so you have to manually open the tube and play them in there.

Think they still do an all nighter at the Royal in Crewe, lived there for a bit 7 years ago, was a good night.
