quote:

Northern Soul is a music and dance movement that emerged, initially in Northern England in the late 1960s, from the British mod scene. Northern soul mainly consists of a particular style of black American soul music based on the heavy beat and fast tempo of the mid-1960s Tamla Motown sound. The northern soul movement, however, generally eschews Motown or Motown-influenced music that has met with significant mainstream success. The recordings most prized by enthusiasts of the genre are usually by lesser-known artists, and were initially released only in limited numbers, often by small regional United States labels such as Ric-Tic and Golden Records (Detroit), Mirwood (Los Angeles) and Shout and Okeh (New York/Chicago).

Nat Hall - "A Broken Hearted Clown" -- Now THIS is an obscure record. I only know about it b/c a guy on a music message board posted that he had uploaded it to YouTube.

Randomly clicked this thread. Randomly tried this song. I like it.

George Perkins - "Cryin' in the Streets" (1970)

Anybody knew anything about this record or George Perkins (born Denham Springs, 1942)?





Was this recorded in BR? Anyone familiar with Deep South studios? Apparently the late Ronnie Shaab (best remembered fo his Hopper's TV ads c. 1990) produced some records there in the early '70s.

Not sure if this song can be classified under the "sweet" part of this thread, but def under the "soul"

Jackie Wilson & Laverne Baker - Think Twice (1965 - X Rated Outtake)

Wonder why it never hit the airwaves...

3 pages and no mention of Otis Redding? This thread is full of fail.

Perhaps a little more to the rock side for that time...
but Van Morrison Brown Eyed Girl has to be a super song... LINK

I also agree.. no Otis Redding ?

I just went back through the thread and unless I'm blind, i didn't find any reference to the Godfather of soul, James Brown :

This is one of his best :

This is a Man's World

A must listen for music fans. Though it says "Kings of Funk" there is plenty of soul there. Great 46 minute music compilation.

Kings of Funk 46 Minutes worth of music

Features this Hank Ballard/James Brown? song

Hank Ballard - From the Love Side
