The In Crowd. The Story of the Northern Soul Scene. Volume One (HARDBACK) - Mike Ritson and Stuart Russell
Spread almost exclusively by word-of-mouth, the Northern Soul scene of the early 1970s managed to avoid the attention of a national press, preoccupied as ever, with events in the capital. "The In Crowd" charts and celebrates the extraordinary story of, what was once, one of the best kept secrets of the early '70s. The first volume begins with the hip R&B collectors, mods and Motown fans who took the Golden Era of 60s Soul as a blueprint for this astonishing culture. Foreword by soul journalist Dave Godin (large gloss hardback).
