Solid Soul Sensations - Ian Levine's Twelfth Northern Soul Podcast

Playing tracks by

Damn Sam The Miracle Man & The Soul Congregation and The Futures.

Well it's now October 2013, and the long hot Summer is all totally over and done with. Instead, we've now had driving rain, floods, and hurricanes. So we are in dire need of some of the best music EVER, to cheer us out of those Autumn blues, and with just a little help from the wonderful Dave Thorley and Tim Brown, I really AM bring you the best podcast out of all twelve, if that were at all possible. But just you wait and listen... So now, after two years of bringing these to you, this is indeed my twelfth three hour Northern Soul and Crossover podcast, meaning that, so far, I have presented well over eight hundred all different records for everyone's enjoyment. The first few records on this twelfth podcast are some of the finest examples of Northern Soul group harmonies you could ever wish to hear. The quintessence of our music. And some true rare exclusive finds. So play them a few times over and over. Till next time - Ian Levine.

We soul harmony fans all know the Elements on Del Nita and it is listed in our "bible", Soul Harmony Singles 1960-90 by Beckman, Hunt & Kline.

You blew me away when you played the Chancellors "Everybody's gotta lose someone sometime" on El Cid. . .I thought I was the only one that had that record, but I should've known that if anyone was going to play it, it would be YOU! Also loved Little Ron & the Esquires and El Count Executives!

Thanks for the weathercast Mr Levine! Im looking forward to this-Ive tried looking round for better casts but I think youve nailed it, dont want to swell your ego, but it is ACE. Same here Simon Luckin-so much new sensational stuff this is what should be keeping the scene alive. I dont know where Im gonna find the time from to listen to the whole lot.As I said cast #7 took me 6 hrs to digest. Best thing about it is its fresh-my main bugbear about going out to a lot of places is that Im hearing the SAME rare records all the time-so rare that everyones got them-this lot is fresher than the altantic blasts that are coming down my chimbley at present.

Good man. Excellent comments. Thankyou - I am in your debt forever.

This podcast is incredible. Three hours of sensational music, most of which was completely new to me and an absolute joy to listen to. I love your linking narration to each track: short, sharp, to the point and very informative - just perfect. There are so many great numbers here it's impossible to comment on all of them but if I had to choose half a dozen or so of my favourites they would be: The Dynamites - I still can't get you out of my heart; The Chancellors - Everybody's gotta lose someone some time; Ruth Davis - Heart breaker; The Rev OC Talbot - You gotta hold on me; Ed Robinson - I just wanna be there; Flight - Playing your game; Jerome Jackson - Feel the music (Sounding much like a cross between 'Can you feel it' and 'Disco Inferno'. Magic!); The Mist - Life walked out; Vivian Verdree - He did a number on me. This was bloody INCREDIBLE and completely blew me away, pipped at the post only marginally by the awesome Paragons - Oh loving you, which when I first heard it reminded me somewhat of the Detroit Spinners' 1974 MIGHTY LOVE which I adore so much and an all time favourite of mine. (I will NEVER understand why that record failed to chart in the UK particularly since it followed the highly successful GHETTO CHILD and reached number one in the American R&B chart. But I must not digress!) This podcast is just INCREDIBLE and worthy of so much more than just a couple of casual play throughs. Once I started listening it became quite hypnotic and I really do hope it won't be too long before we get to hear the next.

Wow. That makes it so worth doing it. I love people who appreciate the hard effort that goes into these. You have re-invigorated me.

Simon, have you listened to all the other eleven. They are all on here, just by clicking on my name.

Simon Luckin

I was going to ask you about the others. Thanks. Gosh - so much good music to look forward to.

Simon Luckin

My pleasure Ian. My top ten should really have included Dimples Harris as well - what a beautiful song, also The Futures. Just brilliant - and it sticks in your head after only a couple of listens. Am so glad I've discovered your podcasts. Just think of the amount of music I was missing. And quite a few don't appear on Youtube. Vivian Verdree is a good example. A classic in my mind and I'm sure I can hear some of your Record Shack/Nightmare sounds within it.
