If your Northern With Soul!



10 The Night


I can’t wait, and would love to hear your views and stories, as I know quite a few Northern Soul heads, older and younger than I!  I also know it was a current scene in Liverpool 1999 to 2002 where I rekindled my dancing flame on the floors of Le bataeu with Scooter Paul & The Big Wheels, working at Urbis on the Detroit Exhibit, in short this music will live on!
