Club Classics: 50 Years of Northern Soul double vinyl

Fancy an overview of classic soul? If vinyl is your preferred format, you might want to check out Club Classics: 50 Years of Northern Soul, which is a double album set from Charly.

Just up for pre-order, it boldly proclaims itself as the ‘ultimate introduction to Northern Soul’, with ‘introduction being the key word there. This isn’t one for the crate diggers and collectors. Although at the same time, it isn’t all overplayed tracks. There’s something of a balance here.

What I’m saying is that if you want to come to Northern Soul fresh, it might be worth a closer inspection. But probably not one for the aficionado.

70 minutes of classics (28 tracks in total over two discs), all of which have been newly remastered from the original master tapes for the first time. Presumably some kind of booklet or write-up here too, although that isn’t mentioned in the initial details.

What we do have is a track listing, which is outlined below. Oh yes, a release date too, which is 29th June 2018. If you want to pre-order, the price is £23.99.
