NORTHERN SOUL: The Film (Soundtrack) (2014)

OST Northern SoulThere’s a film coming out shortly about northern soul (yep, another one), called Northern Soul which (you may be surprised to learn) has got a northern soul soundtrack. All twenty-eight of the cuts featured on the film have been licensed and are appearing in two formats. The one most likely to appeal to northern soul boys and girls is the fourteen seven inches ‘housed in a solid collector’s box’ (hope that’s a steel and wood flight case and not some poncey cardboard affair) and a 60-page hardback book of film stills – though obviously the truly hardcore will have re-mortgaged the house and spunked every penny they’ve ever made on the original vinyl already. For heretics (i.e. everyone else) there’s a 2cd plus dvd box set (the tracks from the vinyl on the first disc plus a second one with a hand-picked selection of cuts by film director and northern soul girl Elaine Constantine) and a mere 20 page booklet.

B-boys and girls amongst you will be cheered to discover that the soundtrack includes a breaker gem like Edwin Starr’s Time. Film teaser below, full track list below that. Keep the faith…
(Out 15 September on Harmless Records)
