Northern Soul: The Soundtrack - Various Artists on Limited Edition 180g Import 2LP
In the 1970s, a form of dance music took a feverish hold on the UK, finding its heart in the north of England. The music of 1960s-70s American soul singers combined with distinctive dance styles to create what became known as Northern Soul. The movement tapped into a yearning for individual expression in northern working-class teenagers, and exploded into a cultural phenomenon that influenced a generation of DJs, songwriters and designers for decades to come. Northern Soul, a new film by acclaimed photographer and director Elaine Constantine, brings to life the scene for a whole new generation of 16 to 24-year-olds as well as longstanding soul fans. In one of the most anticipated releases of the year, Harmless/Demon Records are proud to announce that they will be issuing the soundtrack to the award winning film on vinyl in 2015. The soundtrack contains all the key tracks from the film cut to double 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and housed in a luscious gatefold package.
