"One of the many beauties of northern soul is its sheer unknowability. Itís a scene that has always thrived on the rare, the obscure and the undiscovered. Since it first emerged in the dancehalls of northern England in the late 60s, it has existed in direct opposition to the very concept of greatest hits."

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/aug/23/northern-soul-10-of-the-best

"The northern soul movement, however, generally eschews Motown or Motown-influenced music that has had significant mainstream commercial success. The recordings most prized by enthusiasts of the genre are usually by lesser-known artists, released only in limited numbers..."

Good call, JL. There are some fantastic 45s that made it onto the Northern Soul circuit...

We had this Northern Soul freak on my other other forum for a while, who was even a DJ----maybe he still is. He's got a channel on YouTube, where he calls himself rsouls. LOL

I'll dip into some of the stuff he listed for us. This is high on that list: Frank Wilson (these Wilsons get everywhere) with "Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)":

Here's another NS biggie, so I'm told: Freddie Chavez and "They'll Never Know Why":

R.I.P Sad

And JK, nice songs! That Freddie Chavez song definitely has that Northern Sound to it. It reminds me of a Four Tops song.

Of course, Frank Wilson! He was an excellent songwriter/producer for the Tops and Supremes, but not many know that he was a pretty good singer himself.

Tony Clarke - Landslide!

Very cool! I like the comment that it was stolen from a Sugababes song. LOL

This is another rsouls recommendation, Larry Clinton and "She's Wanted":

This is my wheelhouse. Great songs so far! Here's my first entry, the great "Tainted Love" by Gloria Jones:

Nice! Still the best version.

When I first heard The Fascinations' "Girls Are Out To Get You" I really thought girls were out to get me. Brilliant record anyway.
