I've always said I'd play them Timmie Williams - Competition - Mala but my choice is changing I think towards the JJ Jackson - Too Much Love cover up, powerful Northern Soul dancer :lol:blush.gif

Butch been playing it for about ten years but not really pushed it. Andy D got the second known copy and Mick H got one from Butch. It's now getting pushed and getting the exposure I think it deserves.

Think Mick Smith found the first copy and sold it Butch.

Not really my sort of soul but if one track encapsulates "Northern Soul" then it would be Rubin "You've Been Away"

Back to original comment from Andrew:

...."had a conversation the other day with guy at work about Northern Soul...whats that? "

Have given up on ALL such conversations. Alarm bells start ringing....& its time to get the hell out!

I have tried & failed so many times to summarise and convey to people what Northern Soul is all about. Most people are not in the least 'moved' by soul so its all falling on deaf ears!

Spot on. Even the the most spirited evangelist would struggle to get the message over.

One of the quotes of the weekend at prestatyn.

Tim Brown had just played I'm Gone, and Sean Chapman followed it with little Anthony.

An extremeley drunk, and raging friend of mine wentinto a tirade about it being 'bl00dy wrong playing this after such a great record'.

The converstaion went on, with 3 of us agreeing its a great old tune. He ended up saying

"I'm not gonna let this one go. First thing tomorrow I'm writing to my MP."

:yes:

My choice as always, Sandi Sheldon. With honourable mention to Earl Grant - Hide nor hair.
