The Northern Soul phenomenon was one of the biggest musical movements of the '70s in the UK. At its height, thousands of party people would descend on the clubs and venues of the scene every weekend for all-night parties, driven by high octane Soul music from the previous decade up to the present day. 

The 4 volumes of this series trace the history of the scene via 4 of the greatest clubs on the circuit (The Twisted Wheel, Golden Torch, Blackpool Mecca and Wigan Casino). These LP's represent the most definitive, best researched survey of Northern Soul 45's ever released, but nearly impossible (or affordable) to collect separately.

This is the 2nd installment in our series of Northern Soul compilations. This volume is dedicated to the Golden Torch club, situated in Tunstall, Stoke on Trent. Featuring 25 tracks from the likes of Major Lance, Little Richard, The Triumphs, Roy Hamilton, Johnny (not yet "Guitar") Watson and many others. Another affordable collection of soul / R&B rarities!
