THE IN CROWD - STORY OF NORTHERN SOUL AND THE RARE SOUL SCENE (BEE COOL) New Condition
The Northern Soul scene was exciting, amphetamine-fast and resolutely underground. Spread almost exclusively by word-of-mouth, it managed to avoid the attention of a national press, preoccupied as ever, with events in the capital.
"The In Crowds" charts and celebrates the extraordinary story of, what was once, one of the best kept secrets of the early '70s. The first volume begins with the hip R&B collectors, mods and Motown fans who took the Golden Era of 60s Soul as a blueprint for this astonishing culture.
The foreword is written by soul journalist Dave Godin, credited with first penning the term Northern Soul, and compiler of the critically acclaimed Deep Soul Treasures CDs.
