Northern Soul: 20 Original Classics Volume 2
Out 16th April 2012 on Spectrum Audio
Since its release in July 2010, Northern Soul: 20 Original Classics has sold over 74,000 o.t.c. Now two years later the same team are pleased to present volume 2.
This collection of 20 Original Northern Soul classics provides the listener with an overview of a style of black American soul music which swept across England in the late 60s & 70s. Emerging from the British mod scene in northern England, the style initially focused on the heavy beat and fast tempo of the Tamla Motown sound of the time but expanded to take on other styles.
The album features household names including The Supremes, Dusty Springfield, Ray Charles & The Temptations alongside lesser-known artists made famous by the genre including Nolan Porter and The Hit Pack.
Compiled by Johnny Chandler with sleevenotes by Paolo Hewitt author of leading books on Oasis, The Jam, Small Faces and The Beatles.
