Music On Vinyl presents the third installment in this delightful series of 4 Northern Soul compilations.

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 in Manchester, The Golden Torch in Tunstall, 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 volume features music from Blackpool's Mecca, where local dj's Ian Levine and Colin Curtis would stir up the crowd & get them shuffling to the likes of The Trammps, Earth Wind & Fire, Tony Middleton & Susan Barrett.
