About this item

Wigan Casino godfather Russ Winstanley opened and closed an incredible 546 All-Nighters at the fabled Hearty-Of-Soul between 1973 and 1981. Here we present 16 floorfillers, popular at the time, and ever since. PLUS… we also showcase an – unreleased at the time – Northern Soul winner by Casino legend Tommy Hunt! Our playlist rumbles into life with with one of Northern Soul’s true heavyweights: Lou Prides atmospheric “I’m Com’un Home In TheMorn’un”. A £4,000 sound that summed up the All-Nighter experience for many. In complete contrast, Side Two launches into action with Canadian group Rain and their iconic “Out Of My Mind” which took the Casino by storm and was immortalised in the 1977 documentary This England, along with Judy Street’s “What”, also featured here. Two contrasting tracks and styles that together encapsulate the sound of Northern Soul Survivors! “The Casino All-Nighter is part of our Northern Soul heritage, it is part of everyone who attended the Club; it is the Northern Dance Sound at its raucous best. Get it and share it! – Right On!”
