an excellent BBC documentary
The northern soul phenomenon was the most exciting underground
British club movement of the 1970s. At its highpoint, thousands of disenchanted
white working class youths across the north of England danced to obscure,
mid-60s Motown-inspired sounds until the sun rose.
A dynamic culture of fashions, dance moves, vinyl obsession
and much more grew up around this - all fuelled by the love
of rare black American soul music with an express-train beat.
