“The Scene Club was red hot, the hottest little club in London
and in 1963 London was the centre of the world - even if the rest of the world didn't know it quite yet.” Norman Jopling (Record Mirror).
The club in Ham Yard, off Great Windmill Street, in Soho, central London had previously been a jazz club, but by 1963 it had become a revered mod venue, playing soul, R&B, blues, ska and rock'n'roll records to a sharply dressed crowd. This new compilation collects some of the classic tracks played there at the time. The 28 cuts include gems from Betty Everett, Ike and Tina Turner, Jimmy Reed, Billy Preston, The Upsetters and more.

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.
