May '76

The new Peckham Soul show with your host DJ Craig Jamieson. All Northern soul and soul tunes released in May 1976. A time when the Northern Soul scene was committing fratricide in deciding its direction. Should it embrace contemporary or modern soul releases or keep trying to unearth those hidden 1960's stompers on which the original scene was built? This mix showcases what contemporary, or modern soul releases, had to offer. And it was none to shabby. Leon Haywood, Benny Troy, Jackson Sisters, Arnold Blair, Rick Sheppard, Barrett Strong, Pete Warner, they were all knocking out future classics. So like Liverpool in May 1976, when they won the league and UEFA Cup double, lets celebrate the diversity of uplifting soul music.
