Oldtimer Souldies Series No. 8 - Northern Soul's Girlie Whirlies

The Veteranos still have a spring in their step, so we thought we'd bounce back with some more Northern stompers from our favorite girl groups. The last two collaborations in this series have been immensely popular from a downloads viewpoint - pity about the comments or relative lack of them ! How will we know how we're doing unless you tell us ?!? Anyway, here are some more upbeat up-tempo numbers - some familiar foot-tappers and some head-scratchers. That's a rare picture of The Fawns on the cover. The Sherwoods at #17 and #20 are different groups with the same name - both can belt out a tune ! Over to you now - drop us a line once you've heard this set. The Veteranos
