This show was 5th in the global northern soul chart and 53rd in the global soul chart.
I have been digitizing my cassettes (still many of those to do!) but today I've gone to the stack of Minidiscs!
This is a recording from around 2005 of Eddie Piller & me doing my 'Andy Smith's Northern Soul' night at the Jazz Cafe. This ran from about 2004 to 2006 (I think?) and Adrian Gibson (who used to book acts there) asked me to do it if there was ever an artist in town that was 'Northern Soul' related in some way (although I have no idea who was actually performing on this night?) It was before I got my Hi MD machine (that could easily record the whole night onto one disc) so this is just one disc in regular mode so only 74 mins. It seems to have Eddie and me double decking near the end (as I announce at one point!)
