Northern Soul

     I was walking back to my car the other day when I spotted a bright yellow Vespa scooter parked in a corner, this is a detail from the side panel of the scooter.  I hadn't seen the Northern Soul logo for a long, long time.  On returning home, my 21 year old son took a look at the picture and said "whats Northern Soul?"  Well, for anyone under 21, or 31, or possibly 41, it's kind of American Soul based dance music that was popular in nightclubs in Northern England in the late 1970s.

  1. This ages anyone who recognises it I guess, though I was never into Northern Soul I did like Lisa Stansfield. Well spotted.
