Return to previous page
On Bob Stanley’s label, following up the acclaimed Popcorn Girls (“this enchanting… enlightening collection is an indispensable window on a rarely celebrated scene” – The Arts Desk) here is a truly exotic mix of soul R&B doo wop and atmospheric instrumentals. 
This is Croydon Municipal’s third retrospective of the Popcorn scene that has run parallel to Northern Soul since its inception in Europe in 1969. It’s a delicious and unique blend of sounds from the US, France, Italy based around a moody, shuffling cha cha beat that has recently developed an international following on the mod and soul scenes. 
Most tracks available for the first time on CD
Gorgeous artwork
Thorough sleevenotes by Saint Etienne’s Bob Stanley
In demand mod, soul and 60s club favourites
Along with a glass of brandy, the perfect accompaniment for a Spring evening in.
N.B. This title is released 20th April and will not be dispatched before this date.
