I was brought up in the 1970’s and being a northerner I was brought up with Northern Soul and Motown. My father has hundreds of singles and LP’s covering everything from Al Wilson right up to The Dells.
I have been lucky enough to supply a few Northern Soul Nights across the north east, and always try to throw in a few at other functions.
I have compiled a list of my own personal favourites.
