Chart positions

This upload was 3rd in the Northern Soul chart , 4th in the Old School chart , 5th in the Oldies chart and 37th in the Soul chart .

I recently asked members of the Northern Soul forum on Facebook to recommend their favourite female vocal soul songs. The response was huge - hundreds of songs tipped, some that I know and love, many that were completely new to me. I'm still working my way through the links, but here's a podcast of my favourites so far. There's everything here, from classic northern soul and sublime girl group harmonies to storming r&b and a couple of songs with a funky spring in their step. My shopping list just got a lot longer, although I was pleased to discover that one of these songs - "What I Don't Know (Won't Hurt Me)" by Bettye Lavette - was lurking on the b-side of a single I own already. I'll be playing that, and hopefully a few more of these songs, at the next Great Big Kiss at The Phoenix.

Great Big Kiss at The Phoenix, 37 Cavendish Square, London W1, is on Saturday May 9th. Our guest DJ is Andy Lewis. More info here -
