Up All Night...Non-stop Dancing: The Very Best of Spark Northern Soul (Limited Edition)
Spark Records was started in 1967 as the record label of the Southern Music Group. During the late 1960s and early to mid 1970s a distinct and select flow of Northern Soul singles started to appear on the label. Many of these have become relatively rare and are now fetching high prices.
This compilation album showcases a selection of these collectable 7” single releases including Gene Latter’s dancefloor favourite “Sign On The Dotted Line” (covered in the 1980s by John Bradbury of The Specials offshoot band JB’s All Stars), Tommy Hunt’s crossover Top 30 hit single “Love On The Losing Side” and Ruth Swann’s cover version of the northern soul classic “Tainted Love”.
