A round-up of the vinyl we've bought to play at Great Big Kiss over the last few months. A few of these songs have been on my wish list for years - the fuzzed-up girl group stomp of "You Don't Love Me" by The Starlets and the hand-clapping soul of "Soupy" by Maggie Thrett - so I'm overjoyed to finally have them in my clutches. Elsewhere, you'll find classic northern soul by The Velvet Satins, Jo Armstead, the Ivories and the Fi-Dels, mod dancers courtesy of Georgie Fame and The Harvey Averne Dozen, 50s r&b brilliance by Baby Jean, and all manner of soul goodness to tempt you out onto the dancefloor.
The next Great Big Kiss is on Saturday January 9th at the Phoenix, 37 Cavendish Square, London W1. More info here http://www.howdoesitfeel.co.uk/greatbigkiss.html
