Solid Soul Sensations - Ian Levine's Thirty-Second Northern Soul Podcast

Playing tracks by

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global northern soul chart.

It’s September 2015, and Colin Curtis and I are about to be reunited in Blackpool for the first time in seventeen years, and it’s another month of monster unknowns, crossover, rare holy grails, and some well known forgotten classics. I often wonder if people realise how difficult it is each month to find 72 great records which I haven’t ever played on any of the previous thirty one podcasts. It’s a challenge that certainly occupies my time each month and makes me determined to keep up the quality. This month is a stunner with absolute blue ribbon MONSTERS from The Tradewinds V Inc, The Vondells, and Five Degrees South, coupled with super rare holy grails like The Detroit Sounds Of Friction. But what makes me really proud is the number of informed and knowledgeable colleagues who listen to every record and eagerly wait for each podcast. It is to you wonderful supporters that I dedicate this 32nd Solid Soul Sensations.
So till next time and the Thirty Third Podcast - Ian Levine.

Great Stuff keep it up please


What a great Podcast and as always a great mix of the old and the new, loved the tracks from the Fundamentals, Chuck Jackson and Nelson Saunders. What's so good about Solid Soul Sensations is that it shows new tracks are still out there to be found and so it keeps Northern Soul fresh and invigorated with real soul sounds. What a pleasure to be able to listen to such great soul music, thanks for keeping them coming Ian.

I do hope you are saying it's as good as last month, and not that it sounds the same as last month ????

Leonard Mancini

These are always good, to discover and hear some songs you never heard before. But I did think it was the same as last month as I could swear i listened to this and it was the same as last month. I thought there was a mess up in loading it but as I listened to it again today it is not the same as last month's podcast. Are these tunes you discover by chance while listening to big soul lot purchases?


Many thanks from down under Ian, it's great to be able to listen to such quality tracks we have nothing like it here. Really enjoyed this podcast and I always find tracks that I haven't heard that I really like, finding these for us is of course your trademark. Have a great time at the Mecca reunion, that is going to be big, wish I could have been there.
