Still no idea when the fill will be on general release, but the fact that this Northern Soul movie soundtrack 7-inch vinyl box set is out in September perhaps points to that being the approximate date.
Of course, the book is already out and a double CD with DVD is also available to pre-order (again for September release), but the vinyl box for Elaine Constantine’s movie seems like the thing to have.
According to the pre-release details, the Harmless label has licensed all the tracks from the soundtrack plus one bonus track for 14 x 7-inch discs, all in pic true sleeves featuring key scenes from the film. It also comes with a specially commissioned 60 page hardback-bound book of carefully selected film stills, which have been ‘painstakingly edited and re-touched’ by Elaine Constantine herself. All of that in a heavy duty collector’s box.
Apparently if you bought originals of all the tracks featured, it would set you back around £35,260. Of course, reissues aren’t anywhere those prices, but it is a way of getting the music on vinyl without the hefty outlay.
If the CD tracklisting corresponds to the vinyl, the tracks featured are all listed below, plus that extra ‘mystery’ track to round it up to 28. If you want to pre-order the vinyl box, it retails for £82.99.
