Roger Eagle was the first R&B DJ at the legendary Twisted Wheel and it was his influence and reputation that led to the famous All-Nighters which began on Saturday 28th September 1963. Amongst the records played that night, and making its Wheel debut, was Bo Diddley’s “Road Runner” featured here on this compilation.
This stunning vinyl album is compiled from original playlists and is presented in celebration of the club’s 55th Anniversary.
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.
