Oldtimer Souldies Series No. 7 - Northern Soul's Male Order

The Oldtimers have been polishing their dancing shoes and are out on the floor again ! No. 1 of this series has proved so popular, we thought we would bring you some more of our favorite Northern Soul numbers, this time featuring male artists. It's the usual mix of classic chunes along with a dose of the esoteric. The versions of "Angel Baby" and "You Beat Me To The Punch" are not the ones you might expect from Darrow Fletcher and Mary Wells. That's Otis Leavill on the cover. Pop a few pills, put this set on repeat, practice your back-drops and you can pretend you are at an all-nighter ! Enjoy ! The Veteranos

Track list:
01 - Otis Leavill - Keep On Loving You (Mello)
02 - George Carrow - Angel Baby (Don't You Ever Leave) (East LA Guy)
03 - Joe Matthews - You Better Mend Your Ways (BillyMac)
