Due 08/12...MR M’s WIGAN CASINO NORTHERN SOUL OLDIES ROOM 1974-1981

This is the first ever Northern Soul compilation devoted to the Wigan Casino’s iconic “oldies” room — Mr M’s – featuring 100% oldies chosen by the original resident DJs.

Includes a bonus disc featuring an exclusive interview with original Wigan Casino and Mr M’s DJ Dave Evison, capturing the spirit of Mr M’s with personal memories of the place, the era and the music.

Also boasts a 36-page booklet tracing the history of the club, the DJs and the tracks played, packed with photographs and rare memorabilia.

Features the first and last records ever played at the venue: respectively, ‘Hey Sah-Lo-Nay’ by Mickey Lee Lane and ‘The Night’ by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons.

Includes 50 classic Northern soul sounds by some of the greatest names on record as well as new-to-CD and rarely seen tracks such as ‘Country Road’ by High Voltage, ‘Everybody Dance Now’ by Little Caesar & The Empire, ‘Poor Dog’ by Little Richard, ‘Green Door’ by Wynder K. Frog, the original GM Records U.S. version of ‘Compared To What’ by Mr. Floods Party and the popular UK-only single ‘Game Players’ by Dooley Silverspoon (direct from the master tapes for the first time).

Mr M’s became an engine room churning out vinyl memories, week in, week out, as the perfect warm-up venue for the main Wigan Casino next door.

Curated by the team behind the Joe Boy and Outta Sight labels.
