Earlier tonight while digging around looking for N F Porter’s classic Keep On Keeping On for Swiss Adam, I came across some excellent northern tracks that I haven’t played in far too long. So I think for the next few days you will have to endure a few storming, under played (in this house anyway) northern classics.
First up is an absolute belter of a dancer from Richard Temple, the lyrics of which completely sum up the appeal of northern soul.
That Beatin’ Rhythm was released on the Mirwood record label. An instrumental version called Cigarette Ashes credited to Jimmy Conwell also exisits. Jimmy Conwell and Richard Temple are the same person.
This northern soul stuff is all very confusing.
Apologies for the crackles and the fact that it sticks at the end, the record is quite old.
