Unashamedly nostalgic, but if that’s how you want your Northern Soul, then check out the Mr M’s Northern Soul vinyl compilation.
Released on the Outta Sight label, which is responsible for the likes of The Scene Club and the Twisted Wheel vinyl compilations (plus many more), this is a compilation based around the ‘oldies room’ at the Wigan Casino, which was a club within a club and originally planned as a one-off.
Due to demand, that didn’t happen and became a longstanding ‘oldies’ destination for anyone who wanted their Northern Soul classic and played at 100 mph.
The pick of the plays from the might are featured on this compilation, which is released on 26th March and available to pre-order now. The price to pre-order is £17.84.
Note that if you want more and want CD, there’s a three-disc box set based around the club released by Cherry Red back in 2017. You can pick that up for around £18.
