CATACOMBS AND TORCH CLASSIC
P. P. ARNOLD (Patricia Ann Cole) was born in Los Angeles in 1946 and has enjoyed a long career in the music industry establishing herself as an icon of the British MOD and Northern Soul scene. It all began in 1964 when she joined the Ike & Tina Turner Revue as an Ikette and found herself in swinging London at the height of the Mod/Psych boom. It was Mick Jagger who helped her score a recording contract with the fledgling Immediate label and also produced her duet with Rod Stewart on the storming Mod anthem “Come Home Baby”. But it was her Top 20 hit “The First Cut Is The Deepest” that propelled her into the spotlight, a song written by Cat Stevens and sold to her for just £30! Here we showcase her 1967 Northern Soul classic “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” co-written by label owner Andrew Loog Oldham and the Steve Marriott/Ronnie Lane song “(If You Think You’re) Groovy”.
Northern Soul Never Sounded So Good

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.
