I wonder if this as just a British thing. Long before ecstasy arrived to spark a wide-eyed, jaw-gyrating musical movement in the UK, Northern soul parties were the places to be for all-nighters in the '60s. With a little help of amphetamines, northerners into soul records, old and new, originating from the United States often partied way into the next day, with the frenzied, sweat-inducing dancing on an importance par with the tunes being played. There's a bunch of clubs integral to the northern soul story, from The Twisted Wheel in Manchester to Wigan Casino, and, luckily, photographers were in and among the madness to capture it. As with any movement there was a lot of snobbery as the DJs sought ever more obscure tracks from the states. Very few Northern Soul favourites made it into the charts. This track was recently voted the greatest Northern Soul track ever. It is an awesome piece of work and I wonder if Mr Wilson was a big name in the US ? Enjoy.
