MONSTER NORTHERN SOUL ANTHEM CURRENTLY TRENDING AT OVER £700
JERRY WILLIAMS JR was born in Virginia in 1942 and is best known by his alter-ego Swamp Dogg. He has enjoyed a prolific career as an artist, writer and producer scoring hits for Gene Pitney, Doris Duke, Dee Dee Warwick, Freddie North and Johnny Paycheck. He has recorded a number of collectable up tempo and deep soul sides including “She’s So Divine”, a 3-figure rarity recorded for Academy Records in 1963. But it is his self-penned “If You Ask Me” that catapulted him into the Northern Soul hall of fame and remains a much cherished and in demand dance floor filler. We also feature another favourite Calla Recording, written and produced by Williams, “Just What Do you Plan To Do About It”.
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.
