Music On Vinyl presents the last installment in this delightful series of 4 Northern Soul compilations.

The Northern Soul phenomenon was one of the biggest musical movements of the '70s in the UK. At its height, thousands of party people would descend on the clubs and venues of the scene every weekend for all-night parties, driven by high octane Soul music from the previous decade up to the present day.

The 4 volumes of this series trace the history of the scene via 4 of the greatest clubs on the circuit (The Twisted Wheel, Golden Torch, Blackpool Mecca and Wigan Casino). These LP's represent the most definitive, best researched survey of Northern Soul 45's ever released, but nearly impossible (or affordable) to collect separately.

This volume features music from Wigan Casino, which was active between 1973 and 1981, and was voted ‘The Best Disco In The World’ by Billboard in 1978 – ahead of the infamous Studio 54. DJ Russ Winstanley ruled the decks from the opening songs until the final ‘3 before 8’, spinning bangers such as The Jades’ ‘I’m Where It’s At’, Otis Blackwell’s ‘It’s All Over Me’ and the beautiful ‘Time Will Pass You By’ by Tobi Legend.
