So many, but heres trio from me, throw them up in the air and see how they land, matters not to me, they all make the hairs on the back up of my neck stand up…… phwoar

JJ Barnes - Please let me in 

Syl Johnson - Do you know what love is

Brand New - 1000 years

Make it a quartet…. 😂

Gwen Owens - Wanted and needed

Wow, reminds me that an essential and most distinctive part of any northern track is the intro

It's one of my favourite albums, but was this played out?

I am pretty sure if my memory is still 90% working , It was a Blackpool Mecca spin , but possibly a reduced intro , maybe someone else knows better , sounds like a Colin Curtis sound to me

Can’t beat Sandi Sheldon absolute magic

one of my all time favourite intros though is

One in a million Maxine Brown

also 

Cause your mine Vibrations

but 

Making my daydream real We The People

Investigate Major Lance

Looking for you Garnett Mimms 

Ordinary Joe Terry Callier

You better keep her Marvin Holmes and justice
 

Duck with wolf man Len Johnson and the hi liters

and yes Landslide is the biz

The Velours  I’m gonna change

The Night Frankie Valli and the four seasons

I dare anyone to reply to me. As no one  has made any comment to any of my suggestions it would be nice  to know if any of my replies on this topic mean anything to any of you. 
I have  been on the scene since 1972 would be nice to get some reaction if only negative thanks 

kind regards

Definitely a Mecca spin, I had the Chicago version but I thought the version they played was different than that.

I think it was Ian Levine that played it.

Someone has kindly reminded me of the other version, is was by "Copper n' Brass " for me the less soulful version but it too got spins , with a much less run in , I can see why it would've been the preferred version .

From a perspective of 45's played on the northern/ rare soul dance scene, the two which had me the most capyivated on that first hearing had to be -

Harold Melvin 'Get out'

Melvin Moore 'All of a sudden' 

Opening lines on both are lyrical genius IMO.

Had to laugh Still diggin,  Harold Melvin especially "Get out" is the opposite of what i think the posters thread question was😆, Both great songs though🙂
