Northern Soul – love it live it, there is no other way!
22 October 2014 | by (Wolverhampton) – See all my reviews

Northern Soul – love it live it, there is no other way!

I was there and everything that went on it that film went on in the mid-70s soul scene.

Obviously not every week; as a bit of poetic licence needs to be added to give the viewers a storyline.

Apart from a few anorak moments everything was detailed exactly, or as near to, the era including the locations and clothing.

The choice of music was absolutely 10 out of 10, for the period.

Having seen it on the big screen, the DVD lives up to that experience.

Miss it – Miss out…..In the words of John Bowie – 'Your're gonna miss a good thing' H
