Just take a look at the UK singles & albums charts from 1st March 1969. Motown/soul music was making a full on assault on the UK charts. The soul singles/albums are also listed. Fascinating stuff!

interesting stuff, so soul music/motown, stax etc was pretty much listened to everywhere, what was the 'difference' that kick started full on northern? just the 'unknown' 'raririty' yet 'sounded similar'?

You can see that several of the Motown chart entries are re releases issued due to the emerging Northern scene and renewed interest in those early Motown tracks originally released a couple of years earlier.

Another Billboard chart from March 1963- The R&B Singles, some interesting and surprising records included. This is due to them being bought in stores that provided data for the Billboard chart located in African American neighbourhoods.
