CD Various Artists Club Soul Volume 5 Wigan Casino

 

"WIGAN CASINO bestrode the Northern Soul scene like a mighty colossus, creating a legend that is almost mystical today, drawing people to the music in numbers that still form the bedrock of
countless all-nighters, weekenders and soul nights up and down the country. The Wigan Casino years are the golden ones, when everyone was young, when the numbers were unparalleled, when new styles of soul music were embraced and when the scene occasionally went 'over ground'. Northern Soul in the Seventies was not a one-trick show, as the Wheel, the Torch, the Mecca, Cleethorpes Pier, Yate or Stafford bear testament, but it is the proliferation, the influence and the exploitation that makes the years 1973-81 so important." Tim Brown, author The Wigan Casino Years
