PLAIN & SIMPLE

Mick,

My Northern soul story is a plain and simple one. I just went to the internet (my information source) to find out what this Northern soul was all about. A term that no one here could define. I am 46 years old and from the USA. I have listened to R&B all my life and especially liked the Motown Sound. The only songs I knew of were the ones popularly played on the radio stations. During the past few years I grew tired of hearing the same songs and started to seek out B-sides and album cuts of  the more popular artist. The seeds were planted for my quest to listen to even more obscure and rare songs. It is surprising how many great tracts were overlooked. A number of times I saw mention of Northern soul in Goldmine magazine and had to find out what it was. It seemed to always be associated with Motown in some way so my interest was peaked. Thanks to people like you Mick, who were nice enough to share your interest, I not only discovered what Northern soul was but have also become a fan of this music forever. I only wish that  during the sixties I had an opportunity to have gone to an
allnighter.  My favorite Northern tracts are Thelma Houston's Baby Mine and Rubin Parker's You Been Gone. I was hoping you could put Rubin Parker back on your sight permanently.

Thanks,

Bill
