the cream of... Northern Soul Vol. 1



 I bought this box set eighteen years ago in down town Chicago & I'm sure it has been long out of print by now. Although I'm into ballads, slow jams, sweet soul or whatever it's called in your neck of the woods. At that time, I didn't know that "Northern Soul" were all up-beat tunes. I'm posting this mainly for our friends "across the the pond".

    1. Hey Rich, I think you'd like to hear some of the flip sides like I would.
      The B-sides usually seem to contain those ballads we're looking for.
