The latest episode in our epic journey through the official northern soul Top 500 sees us kicking off with one of my all-time favourite northern soul songs, "I'm Standing" by Rufus Lumley. This would easily be in my top top, so what it's doing languishing down in the 200s is a total mystery, but as a show starter, you'd be hard-pressed to do any better than this. Elsewhere, there's solid gold classics in the form of "Suspicion" by The Originals, "Compared To What" by Mr Flood's Party, "I've Got Something Good" by Sam And Kitty and "I'm Not Built This Way" by The Hesitations, a distant cousin of "Hold On To My Baby" by The Cavaliers, plus the usual eclectic mix of blue eyed soul, smooth 70s soul, R&B stompers, and more.
The next Great Big Kiss is on Saturday December 9th at The Phoenix, 37 Cavendish Square, London W1, with guest DJ Andy Lewis. More info here http://www.howdoesitfeel.co.uk/greatbigkiss.html
