Various: Club Soul - The Twisted Wheel (LP, 180g Vinyl)
(Charly) 14 tracks The Twisted Wheel in Manchester is one of the legendary names in British clubbing history. Originally opened in 1963 in a coffee bar, it quickly developed a reputation as one of the best venues in the country for obscure, imported soul, R&B and ska records.
Music fans flocked from all over the country to the weekly "All-Nighters" to hear these records along with live sets from some of the best soul artists of the time. In fact, the term "Northern Soul" was first coined by journalist Dave Godin after a visit to the Twisted Wheel to describe the special kind of music that was played there.
Catapult yourself back to the mid-1960s with the greatest classics once spun on the Twisted Wheel. Featuring a host of legendary R&B artists, including Bobby "Blue" Bland, Joe Haywood, The Sharpees, Benny Spellman, Alvin Robinson, Solomon Burke, Ernie K-Doe, The Rubaiyats, The Ad Libs, Bo Diddley, Fats Domino and others, all newly restored from the original analog tapes.
This edition of The Twisted Wheel is individually packaged on 180g audiophile grade vinyl.
