Blue Juice Film - Northern Soul Clips 1995
Maybe the first Northern Soul exposure in a mainstream cinema film.
Released in 1995 this British film feature features a few brief but entertaining segments involving 5 minutes of northern soul related scenes..
The main clip is about 3 minutes long and takes in a sort of a church hall dance floor scene, which features a fair few familiar dancers/faces. Earlier on there is a more spoken part which sets the scene for the dance hall part.
Edwin Starr makes an appearance both as an actor/singer ‘Ozzy Sands’ towards the end of the film and also delivers a great (maybe one of the best tailor-mades made?) northern soul track ‘Price of Pain’. Which plays a major part in the record producers Joshs story.
All the 3 scenes mentioned above have been merged into this one clip.
