The latest instalment of our journey through the official northern soul top 500 finds us drifting blissfully into an hour of quiet classics. There are no huge, foot-stomping anthems here, but a run of incredible songs that harness a slowburning power to create those soulful dancefloor moments where the real world just seems to melt away. From The Impressions' "You've Been Cheatin'", propelled by the dreamlike falsetto of Curtis Mayfield, to "Run For Cover" by The Dells and "If I Could Only Be Sure" by Nolan Porter, this is northern soul at its purest - sensitive, serious and straight from the heart.
