When the symbol of the clenched fist and the slogan 'Do not Stop Believing' (Keep The Faith) we were still the symbol of a generation. The one in the north of England, in the late sixties and early seventies, caught fire for the black American music: not for the success of big record labels like Motown, but for rare 45's of smaller labels, played in clubs and disputed by collectors, for example, 'Tainted Love', played by Gloria Jones in '64: rearranged by Soft Cell in '81, when the genre was still popular and began to arrive in Italy, he climbed the UK charts. The main places where you could listen and dance to the Northern Soul in England, were the Torch, the Wigan Casino and Blackpool Mecca, while the greatest deejay were Ian Levine of Mecca (1971-80) and the trio Kev Roberts, Russ Winstanley and Richard Sterling Wigan (1973-81). ©
