Bought this Album when it was released in 72. Still the best Motown compilation record ive heard.
It contains the best instrumental track of all time imho.
Play it regularly on the Linn Sondek that's as old as this L.P.

Just bought a fresh copy of Elvis Costello's "This years Model", from 'X Records' at Bolton.
A timeless record, and "Spanish Model" is a lot of fun, too!

So much more choice than 'Action', but hey, without it, my musical life would have been a lot poorer

I was hooked for life on what became known as Northern soul thanks to the Stax club in late 60s, moved onto the Highland room at Blackpoo Mecca but when the Casino came along in 73 i wasnt up for niters due mainly to playing & watching footy at weekends plus tother half wouldnt let me go :whistle: I do regret missing out on that experience but made up for it 20 years later by going to as many Soul niters & weekenders as i could fit in after i got divorced :)
Course i remember Ged Rudd. One of a number of well known local " Characters" of that era ;)

I never went for the Northern Soul experience but loved the music, and still love Motown, my sister was a big fan of the whole scene and we never saw her at weekends 'al-nighters' and the cult that was Nothern Soul, a lot of those people are long since past Ged Rudd also, sad a really good bunch of people.

This week I have been mostly listening to:

REM - New Adventures in Hi Fi (25th Anniversary Edition) - The live version of Wichita Lineman is incredible.

Damon Albarn - The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows. Really good wintery vibe to it

Nightmares on Wax - Shout Out! To Freedom.
