Best of Northern Soul Vol. 2


As a follow-up to our hugely successful Northern Soul CD, "The Best of Northern Soul," "The Best of Northern Soul Vol 2" features more rare hard-to-find Philly hits plus some never released recordings by some of Philadelphia's finest artists and groups that were part of the sound in the 60's known as Northern Soul.  


Along with artists and groups featured in our first CD, including Len Barry, Bunny Sigler, Cindy Scott, Johnny Caswell, Joey Heatherton, The Sweet Three, Grover Mitchell, The Formations, The Tymes, George Tindley and The Sherrys, Vol. 2 also features The Electric Indian, Joe Renzetti, The Lavenders with Leon Huff, The Bobbi-Pins, Daryl Hall, The Mellow Moods, The Moods, James Bounty, The Chargers and Cupit.  


This historical CD contains valuable information, when available, on the arrangers, musicians who played on each song, the date the song was recorded and the studio where it was recorded.  Also featured are rare photos of many of the artists and groups.


Leon Huff, who was discovered by John Madara, before he partnered with Kenny Gamble to become one of the most successful writing/producing teams in the music business, writes, co-produces with Kenny Gamble and plays keyboards on many of the songs.  Also playing keyboards on several of the songs is Daryl Hall, who John also discovered, before he hooked up with John Oates to become the must successful duo in the history of the music business.


This one-of-a-king CD is presented by John Madara for THAT PHILLY SOUND.  Along with partner, Dave White, he wrote and produced such timeless classics as AT THE HOP (Danny and The Juniors), THE FLY (Chubby Checker), YOU DON'T OWN ME (Leslie Gore) and 1-2-3 (Len Barry, who also co-wrote the song with Madara & White).  These and countless other hits by Madara & White helped to create "The Sound Of Philadelphia."


All songs have been digitally restored and digitally mastered.
