WIGAN CASINO - STATION ROAD, WIGAN - THE ORIGINAL SOUND OF NORTHERN SOUL, POPCORN AND R&B

NEWLY REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES & RARE VINYL

In 1978 Americas Billboard Magazine voted Wigan Casino the Worlds Best Disco. Over 4-million soul fans passed through the Casino doors, it really was a wonderful time. Russ Winstanley

While other clubs may be able to argue they were the birthplace of Northern Soul in the UK, few can claim to have the same popularity or influence as the mighty Wigan Casino. The venue became a Mecca for fans of rare, imported soul records, with a passionate, dedicated fanbase. No-one could have predicted the club's enormity and impact on Northern Soul. Perhaps it was a combination of circumstances: the untimely demise of the Golden Torch in Stoke-On-Trent, the escape from the workplace that the "scene" offered, a sense of belonging, and something your parents couldn't begin to understand!

This new LP album, presented on 180g heavyweight audiophile vinyl with sleeve notes, collects some of the classic tracks that were played at the famous club from 1973-81 including exclusive songs not on the 2013 CD edition (CHARLY661X). It features a host of legendary artists including The Ringleaders, The Jerms, Ohio Players, Blanch Carter, The Inspirations, The Young Savages, Little Richie, Maurice Williams, Ron Holden, The Combinations, The C.O.D.s and more.
