A stunning set of rare soul from the glory days of the Northern Soul years – and even more amazing because none of these tunes were ever issued at the time! Yet these aren't second-hand cuts that have lain in the vaults, nor the dregs of good recording sessions – and instead, these are killer tracks that finally saw the light of day on various reissues over the decades – years after their conception, but with enough space to have gotten them plenty of spins on later generations of Northern Soul dancefloors. The work is all wonderful – really top-shelf material that's right up there with Detroit or Philly
classics – often recorded by artists you'll know from other great singles too. Titles include "Push A Little Harder" by The Metros, "Honey Please Stay" by United Four, "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" by Lonnie Youngblood, "I Wish You The World
Of Happiness" by Shirley Turner, "I'm Not Afraid" by Sharon Scott, "You Only Live Twice" by Lorraine Chandler, "The Magic Touch" by Melba Moore, "It's Torture" by Maxine Brown, "Ooh It Hurts Me" by The Cavaliers, and "Hey Girl" by Porgy & The Monarchs.
