This show was 1st in the global oldies chart, 6th in the global northern soul chart, 6th in the global classics chart, 8th in the global old school chart and 54th in the global soul chart.
The third in the new series of Great Big Kiss podcasts, in which we make our way through the official Northern Soul Top 500. This time around we glide from 41-60, and this podcast sees the chart start to broaden out stylistically, adding the smoother sounds of modern/crossover northern to the footstomping charms of the classic floorfillers. My picks of the chart are "My Sugar Baby" by Connie Clark, "A Little Bit Hurt" by Julien Covey, "Crackin' Up Over You" by Roy Hamilton, and the brilliant, atmospheric instrumental "Bari Track", which turns even the most humble dancehall into a grand ballroom.
The next Great Big Kiss is on Saturday March 12th at The Phoenix, 37 Cavendish Square, London W1, 9pm-3am. More info here - http://www.howdoesitfeel.co.uk/greatbigkiss.html
