Shades of Soul explores the sophisticated side of Northern Soul with a smooth collection of soulful recordings that have, over time, become known as “Crossover”; a bridge between Northern Soul and Philly disco. Here we have perennial dancefloor favourites from Gene Townsel, Johnny Adams, Eddie Billups and Jackey Beavers plus more recent reactivations such as “I’ve Just Got To Tell Somebody” by Gloria Lynne thanks to DJ Richard Searling. We also feature the rarest of the rare courtesy of Point Of View, The Harmonics and Gerald Taylor. Sixteen mid and uptempo grooves that showcase the crossover from Northern to Modern Soul.
This first edition of Shades of Soul is presented on 180g heavyweight audiophile vinyl in single sleeve packaging complete with liner notes and Club Soul insert. Shades of Soul joins a growing catalogue of premium music on the Club Soul imprint - including newly compiled LPs that celebrate the clubs of the original Northern Soul Scene - The Scene Club, The Twisted Wheel, Wigan Casino and The Catacombs.
