The Only Way Is Up - 80s Northern Soul Mix


Recommended Posts

Posted

Back in the early / mid 80s, I was surprised when the occasional new record started to get played in the northern soul rooms. Although it took a bit of getting used to at the time, these sounds soon became the most popular of the night. Some got mainstream recognition, some became anthems and others not really discovered until over 15 years later.  This mix includes some big well known names like Harold Melvin, Detroit Spinners and Gladys Knight, northern soul stalwarts like Chuck Jackson, Barbara Lynn and Mary Love to the usual obscure artists that nobody has ever heard of since.
