A snippet of the release notes from Ady Croasdell follows below.
For once it's the club and the people in it that take the spotlight in the sleeve notes. My apologies to Chuck, Maxine and Brother James, but I'm sure they'll understand. It's the story of how classic, vintage, soul music really took off in London and how a generation of Northern Soul fans rediscovered their roots and broadened their appreciation of black American music.
In the late 70s Northern Soul was overly concerned with stompers and rarity and had neglected its soul and mod beginnings. A tough London roofer, who had been an original mod, and a long-haired college kid from Market Harborough, in the Midlands, was the unlikely combination of personalities that really got the scene moving. Prior to that there had been sporadic dances for the 50 or so southern stalwart, soul record collectors but Randy and I, with the 6T'S, proved to be the right geezers at the right time with the best music.
The first night was in Covent Garden on 17 August 1979 and the joyous, sweaty and soul-sated sell-out crowd told us that Rhythm & Soul was the way to go. The music was a mixture of mod classics, early Motown, jazz instrumental grooves and some tough, danceable R&B. Virtually all of it was on 45, was black American and heralded from 1963-1966. The DJs all had great collections, really knew their stuff and were as enthusiastic as the dancers who they would join when their sets were over.
