An eclectic blend of 14 hard-edged Northern Soul cuts from the funky side of the street features super-rare cuts from Ricky Allen, Willie West, Aaron Neville, plus “Unreleased-At-The-Time” tracks by Josephine Taylor and Alvin Cash.
It’s me to pass the hatchet instead of the talc, and trade in the spin-and-slide for the hook-and-sling and work that dance floor! Club Soul are proud to present a fresh compilation of 14 hard-edged, kitchen-sink rhythms that
demand dance floor attention! Here we showcase the funky side of Northern Soul which has captured the imagination of our soul brothers and sisters across Europe and a growing number of progressive clubs in the U.K.
This eclectic blend borrows its name from title track “Soul Street” by Ricky Allen; a super-rare cut written and produced by Mel London and originally released to no acclaim on his Chicago based Tam-boo label circa 1968. Allen is joined by familiar faces such as southern soulsters Alder Ray Black & Eddie Bo, our hit artists Betty Harris, Tina Turner & Aaron Neville, compilation debut Lenny McDaniel and unreleased at the time tracks from Josephine Taylor & Alvin Cash.
