We’re going to do something different on “Great Soul Performances” this evening, we’ll salute the music that has been the rage in the north of London for decades, “Northern Soul.” G.S.P. was born in London on VIP Radio and was launched by the King of “Northern Soul” Kev Roberts; who I hope will be listening today. “Northern Soul” is a music and a dance movement based on the style of American Soul Music, particularly the heavy beat and tempo of Motown. It turned out that several American artists had hits in the UK that frankly bombed in the U.S. but resonated across the pond. So you’ll hear songs by: Little Anthony & the Imperials, Barbara Acklin, the Contours, Doris Troy, Eddie Holland, Lou Johnson, Mary Wells, the Parliaments, Eddie Holman, Barbara McNair, Frankie Beverly & the Butlers, Roy C. and others.
