Comprehensive collection of Northern Soul cuts selected by DJ Andy Smith.
Best known as the touring DJ with trip hop pioneers Portishead, Andy Smith's The Document mix CDs proved him a mixologist of uncommon skill and taste. With the self-explanatory Andy Smith's Northern Soul, he also proves himself a crate digger par excellence.
Andy picks out some favourites that have been storming dance floors at his Northern Soul night at the Jazz Cafe in Camden Town, London.
Mixed in Andy's inimitable style, the 25 tracks here are a mixture of northern soul classics (including tracks that have been sampled by Fatboy Slim and Wu-Tang Clan) and slightly less well-known floor fillers. Highlights include Curtis Lee's Is She in Your Town? and the Charmels' As Long As I’ve Got You.
