Was bought the hardback last year. Good read including tales of travelling from London to the the Casino and Mecca. Recommended. 

Same as Keamus - read the hardback. I found the Spurs away at Liverpool and trips to NY most compelling, but it was interesting to see a black Londoner's viewpoint of the Home Counties late 7ts/8ts so

I enjoyed the hardback. The stories about trips to NY and the records brought back (and subsequently "discovered" by others :rofl:) are amusing. Was pleased to see a nice word for Mark Roman, the original Crackers dj who sadly passed away in June this year. Unlike many other clubs at the time there was not a racist door policy there, while the playlist did much to attract a lot of regulars. Add to that all the stories about the various clubs and venues visited and you've got a very informed perspective on a large cross section of the UK soul scene at a crucial time in its development. Recommended.

Thanks for the heads up. Just downloaded to Kindle and was looking for some new inspiration. 

One of the best books I read (a good few years ago) but in a similar vein was 'Last night a DJ saved my life'. Really interesting and well researched book about the history of the DJ, Inc a chapter on Northern Soul iirc.
