Lists from David Nowell - The Story of Northern Soul (2011)

Post by mileswide »

Been putting this off for too long but I happened upon a series of lists in David Nowell's comprehensive 2011 tome The Story of Northern Soul: A Definitive History of the Dance Scene that Refuses to Die (Pavilion Books).

Some of them are from DJs, critics and the author himself, others appear to be from ordinary punters, but I'll catalogue all of them in the interest of completism, even where eligibility criteria is not satisfied. All lists unranked:

Jay and the Americans - Hung up along the Way

To be continued and proofread (not just for any further mistakes of my own making but for ones made in the book in question). If evidence of the original source is needed, I'll post screenshots of the relevant pages.

EDIT: The Gentleman and Their Baby changed to Gentlemen and Their Lady to correct my own error.
2nd EDIT: The Velvets - I'm Gonna Find Me Somebody is credited on Discogs and Spotify instead as The Vel-Vets - I Got to Find Me Somebody.
3rd EDIT: The Triumphs track appears more commonly to be prefixed by I'm, ergo I'm Coming to Your Rescue.
4th EDIT: Altered How Can I Ever Find Another Way to How Can I Ever Find a Way; I was at fault here. Carol & Jerri also go by Carol & Gerri.
5th EDIT: The Casualers was my typo.
N.B. The Dena Barnes song is sometimes dubbed If You Ever Walk out of My Life.
