The Original Sound of Northern Soul!
Club Soul's long anticipated comeback album Northern Soul Weekender features an all-star line up of fabled artists and iconic tracks culled from the playlist of the world's most famous soul club by Mr. Northern Soul himself...Russ Winstanley. The 16 track DJ set blasts off with Sidney Barnes' anthemic "I Hurt On The Other Side" in celebration of his return to UK shores for the largest Northern Soul gathering In Skegness (UK). In further tribute to the living legend they present The Ad Libs, previously unreleased version of Barnes' "You'll Always Be In Style."
The relentless stomping dance pace is propelled by current in demanders courtesy of the formidable Big Daddy Rogers and the uncompromising Ann Sexton with her newly discovered classic "I Still Love You" and favorites from Joe Tex and the Ohio Players. Sam Dees delivers his unique "count in" version of "Lonely For You Baby," a track originally released by Club Soul's parent company Charly Records.
The action continues with the incredible four-figure rarity "Gone With The Wind Is My Love" by Rita & The Tiaras. And the rarities continue with the Valentines, Little Richie, Jerry Williams and the Ringleaders. Ellie Greenwhich also makes a very welcome appearance with her current floor packer "Baby" and MOD icon P.P. Arnold performs the evergreen "Everything' Gonna Be Alright." All digitally remastered and restored from analogue tape and original vinyl.
