Northern Soul is that most rarefied of sounds, a primitive dance music scored from the very heart of the black America of the '60s. Today, in the CD age, where labels like Music Club offer a veritable library of archive music, it's difficult to appreciate the sense of adventure which permeated the original Northern Soul scene among DJ's and collectors trying to hunt down records like those on this album. New discoveries were 'covered up' with bogus credits to avoid detection, and dealers made frenzied busmans holiday trips to the U.S. where the Americans must have puzzled over this strange influx of earnest record buyers who'd go potty over what they deemed some crappy Motown spin-off.

Later, of course, this mentality, this thirst to devour new rarities, spread like wildfire through pop music, such that everyone from Madonna and Prince to Oasis have valuables to their name - and the scarcest Northern Soul 45s are now tagged at several thousand pounds apiece. So there's a definite sense of the pioneer about those enterprising characters who dug up the Northern Soul classics heard on "Cooler Shakers" back in the very late '60s and 1970s.
