K's Greatest Northern Soul SPECIAL Part 2 VA - The Northern Soul Top 100 Bubbling Under (2021 Remastered Edition) [2000] (4xCD's)

K's Greatest Northern Soul SPECIAL  Part 2

VA - The Northern Soul Top 100 Bubbling Under (2021 Remastered Edition) [2000] (4xCD's)

As the follow up to Kev Roberts' Northern Soul Top 500, he also listed 100 records as 'bubbling under' in his book:“Every Soul Boy & Girl has their favourite sounds, I’m sure that as you read the Top 500 that you were surprised not to see a record that is particularly close to your own heart, I have my own personal favourites many of which didn’t make it either, however you may well find it in this list of 100 spins that nearly made the chart…” http://www.rocklistmusic.co.uk/steveparker/northern_soul_top_500.htm

To my knowledge the top 100 bubbling under tracks have never been compiled before by anyone.  Here is my collection compiled using the very latest and best sounding digital remasters released to date, from my own CD collection, Amazon, iTunes downloads, etc., etc. So many rare records here. It's amazing that even though these 100 tracks are bubbling under the top 500, there are so many GREAT Northern Soul floor-shakers here.
