This month, I treated myself to the vinyl box set of singles featured in the Elaine Constantine film, "Northern Soul". There's 14 singles and 28 tracks in all - this podcast is my pick of the bunch, a crisp 42 minute set featuring 16 of the 28 songs. As you might expect, it features classic after classic, from "Right Track" and "Gone With The Wind Is My Love" to "Just Say You're Wanted (And Needed)" and "Lonely For You Baby".
Great Big Kiss is on Saturday January 10th at The Phoenix, Cavendish Square, W1, a few minutes walk from Oxford Circus tube station. Our guest DJs are The Actionettes.
