Our featured side, “A Certain Girl”, remastered here from the original tape for the first time, has been covered a number of times, most notably by The Yardbirds in 1964 for their debut single. UK Mod group First Gear, featuring Jimmy Page, also had a go in ‘64.
“Here Come The Girls” is another Toussaint song taken from K-Doe’s eponymous album recorded for Janus Records a decade late in 1972. It failed to gain any attention at the time but charted in the UK in December 2007 when it was adopted by ‘Boots’ for their Christmas TV campaign. UK R&B band, the Sugarbabes, covered the song the following year taking it to #3 on the official UK pop charts.
Northern Soul Never Sounded So Good
founder of the Wigan Casino All-Nighters 1973-1981
Club Soul charts the inception, development and eventual commercialism of the world’s most enduring underground music movement; Northern Soul. Born in the post-war city club scene, alive with the hot new sound of American Rhythm & Blues, Northern Soul would evolve into its own unique style capturing the imagination of the Nation’s youth, seduced by its secret world of all-night dancing, a world alien to their parents and even their peers. Here are hits, standards, rarities, obscurities, and here are too are those very tracks researched, compiled and annotated as never before.
Club Soul is managed, marketed, distributed and fulfilled by Snapper Music, one of the U.K.'s premier independent record labels. All orders are shipped professionally and promptly from our Lewes warehouse.
