  • Various - Soul For Dancers: Out On The Floor Firecrackers That Ignited The Northern Soul Boom 2LP (LP)


    On Soul For Dancers, journalist (Mojo, Record Collector) and R&B authority Lois Wilson takes a trip back in time to the rare soul scene’s roots, to where it all began if you like. Many of the 32 tracks on this 2LP vinyl set (selected from the 61-track 2CD compilation) filled the floor at Manchester’s The Twisted Wheel and London’s The Scene Club, both precursors of the Wigan Casino, Blackpool Mecca, The Golden Torch in Stoke et al. The sparks that lit the fuse, these early triumphs would give rise to an era defining scene, one which became a treasured subcultural phenomenon.

    Some tracks on Soul For Dancers were obscure back then but are crowd favourites today, others still remain rare and largely unknown. Some of the artists are famous (James Brown, Etta James, Jackie Wilson, The Isley Brothers, Don Covay, Irma Thomas, and Sam and Dave) although the tracks selected here may be less familiar, while other artists like Bruce Cloud, Eloise Carter, Bunker Hill, Willie Cobbs and Mary Johnson are known only to the soul cognoscenti. Every track’s a winner here so put on your dancing shoes and get on that good foot!

    Lois’s previous compilations for Fantastic Voyage include Get On The Right Track, Right On and Ain’t Gonna Hush, all popular releases which have elicited enthusiastic reviews.
