    any of the early Kent/Ace releases are always a good starting block.

    the Goldmine Soul Supply series are nicely priced & widely available too.

    there's loads of cheap CD comps out there nowadays but be aware that many are total shite relying on one or two quality tunes to cover a dirge of slag

      i really like this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00000B7Q5/ , but you can get it much cheaper - mine was 5 quid in HMV

        My favourite is the Cleethorpes Story on Goldmine (and I&#39;m not just saying this as some sort of demented regional pride). If you like funky records -- and let&#39;s face it funky is regarded as a term of abuse by many on the northern scene -- then the Cleethorpes Story is a good place to start. It&#39;s a bit more disco, a bit more funky and a bit less frenetic.

          ...isn&#39;t it just &#33;  

          &quot;...i can&#39;t dance to THAT &#33;...&quot;    
          If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

            Question - what are your fave &quot;northern&quot; singles that are truly two-sided...? ? ? if you catch my drift...

            Allow me to explain... what are your fave 45&#39;s that have a smashing soul track/ballad one one side (that one might label &#39;northern&#39 and a very funky track (perhaps instrumental) on the flip... ? ? ?

            Me, at the mo - my two Soul Toronadoes 45&#39;s on Atlantic.

              Do you mean the TSU Toronados? Or are there Soul Toronados ones on Atlantic as well?

                  Great group. There&#39;s a nice little piece on them here:

                    Freda Payne &#39;Band Of Gold&#39;/&#39;Easiest Way To Fall&#39; (Invictus) (Although I guess &#39;Band Of Gold&#39; in itself is just more energetic rather than funky).

                    You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

                      thanks for the recommendations. I&#39;m gonna see if I can find this stuff here in the US, if all else fails then i&#39;ll order from Amazon UK.

                        actually, I just found some northern soul stuff through Dusty Groove, are there any from this list that you would recommend?
