Northern Soul 3

October 25, 2012

Detroit, 1967:

Popcorn Orchestra- Going to a Happening

MP3: Popcorn Orchestra- Going To A Happening

Chicago, 1967. Wow what a drummer:

MP3: The Mighty Marvelows -Talkin’ Bout Ya, Baby

Been digging up some nice forgotten Motown nuggets. The great thing about Motown releases is the sound quality. There are tens of thousands of solid northern soul releases from the 60s, but there are no master recordings from most of them, so we’re stuck with a direct rip from a muffled, scratchy 45. Not so with Motown.

So goddamn who’s been hiding this Isley Brothers track from us for so long? Written by Ivory Joe Hunter & Stevie Wonder, It never appeared on any LP until this century.

MP3: Isley Brothers- My Love Is Your Love (Forever)

And speaking of the Isley Brothers; boy have they had a successful career, flying just under the average listener’s radar.
