As you climbed the stairs and entered the room, the decks were on your left, readily accessable for requests. No stage to ...

BLUES AND SOUL’S 40 ESSENTIAL SOUL SINGLES

1. MARVIN GAYE - �I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE� (Tamla 1968)This isn't my favourite Marvin Gaye track, but I do consider it his most essential and because of its impact soul's most essential too. In just over a little more than three harrowing minutes Marvin delivers as much anguish, grief and passion as any Shakespeare tragedy. It proves that soul music - at its ...

NORTHERN SOUL GIRL – LEVANNA MCLEAN, the new face of Northern Soul, talks

Its actually a good interview Northern Soul? That's for old folks, isn't it? Well, not any more - and certainly not if 18-year-old LEVANNA MCLEAN has anything to do with it. She's young, bright, pretty and talented and there's nothing she likes doing more than moving around on the dance floor with spins and kicks to a pounding '60s soul groove. "There are so many ...

My life as a northern soul boy: rebellion on the dancefloor in the 1970s

The scene is a packed school gym full of shy, ungainly people shuffling around to Gary Glitter. It is 1974. At the front are a group of perennial delinquents – the only black kid in our town, his tough Italian mate, others we’ve lost sight of since the 11-plus. They don’t dance; they mock the other dancers. And then the DJ plays Get Out by ...
