Love that Northern sound..
Just watched Northern Soul documentary on BBC I Player, so I'm in the mood to throw down some talc and groove!
@80sfan I second that emotion.
Oh that is good!
stellar choice, as usual.
Wonderful song - He was another artist that started out singing gospel in the church. I always wonder about those musicians and what was it about the day they decided to leave and sing secular music - Buffalo NY is not NYC so perhaps the draw of the big city? I always want to know what was the one thing that made them switch?
@SheRa ambition, presumably
@newley Superb thanks
@pez Valid point. There is much more money and fame singing other music..Dollar signs can eliminate conflict rather quickly I'm guessing ;-)
@SheRa indeed :) also bear in mind that singing secular music doesn't mean an end to singing gospel ... Aretha's biggest album for example was Amazing Grace
