About this item

'Wigan Casino bestrode the Northern Soul scene like a mighty colossus, creating a legend that is almost mystical today, drawing people to the music in numbers that still form the bedrock of countless all-nighters, weekenders and soul nights up and down the country. The Wigan Casino years are the golden ones, when everyone was young, when the numbers were unparalleled, when new styles of soul music were embraced and when the scene occasionally went ‘over ground’.' Tim Brown, (author The Wigan Casino Years) While other clubs may be able to argue they were the birth place of Northern Soul in the UK, few can claim to have the same popularity or influence as the mighty Wigan Casino. The venue became a Mecca for fans of rare, imported soul records, with a passionate, dedicated fanbase. This new compilation collects some of the classic tracks that would have been played at the time. The 28 tracks include gems from Ann Sexton, Joe Tex, Gene Chandler and more. The release also includes a bonus disc featuring a live set by Tommy Hunt, recorded at the club in 1975.
