Win: Northern Soul – An Illustrated History by Elaine Constantine and Gareth Sweeney

We wrote about it a while back, with the release of the book now imminent (if you have a copy on pre-order). If you didn’t pre-order, we have three copies of Northern Soul – An Illustrated History by Elaine Constantine and Gareth Sweeney to give away.

Originally we described the 224-page hardback book as a companion piece to the incoming movie, which is directed by co-author Elaine Constantine. But we now know it is likely to be more than that.

It’s the story of northern soul with heavy emphasis on imagery of the original scene, bringing to life that original northern movement for a new generation. It’s described as ‘a vivid celebration of all things about the culture’, mixing Elaine Constantine’s photography with archival photography and oral histories from original soul fans, histories of the clubs, top ten features and much more.

You can see some pages from the book and and a few examples of the images within below. If you like what you see, the book is published on 5th September and is available to buy now for a discounted £13.20 on Amazon.

Or you can win one right here. Just add your details (which will be deleted at comp end) and you’ll be in the virtual hat for one of three copies. Good luck!

This competition is now closed.
