Ian Dewhirst is best known as a compiler but he got his start in music DJing in the Northern Soul scene, where obscurity is everything. He stumbled into Northern Soul thanks to a job at a local market stall and went from lending records to DJs to spinning them under the name “Frank,” in reference to footballer Frank Worthington. He soon became one of the most risk-daring DJs on the Northern Soul circuit, expanding his vast knowledge of American soul music. From there, Dewhirst helped put together the group Shalamar and got down with George Clinton before putting together the groundbreaking compilation series Mastercuts and involving himself with all sorts of modern dancefloor trends.

The Esquires – You Say
Bunky Records # BNK 7753. Released in 1968.
Timeless Impressions type group northern soul dancers both sides of this 45. So good! A blast of brass, then the trademark falsetto vocals and we’re whisked off into another Esquires rollercoaster ride of dance-soul. Their 2 well known Northern Soul classics “Get On Up” and “And Get Away” pale in comparison to this their hardly known gem! Arranged By Tom Tom Washington. Produced By Bil Bunky Sheppard. Vinyl rip from musicdawn 45’s records collection.

This video takes you on a tour through the pages of issue #6 of There’s That Beat! magazine-the quarterly publication of the Hitsville Soul Club. In this issue, we have another installment of our Motown series, focusing on Tamla records this time around. We also take a look at the career of the legendary soul group, the Dynamics. Hitsville did a lot this year, so we give you reviews of a recent soul conert, our annual northern soul weekender, plus a trip to Philadelphia, where we take you inside the inner sanctum of Philly soul with tours of Sigma Sound, Philadelphia International records, Frankford Wayne Mastering Labs and other soulful hotspots in Philly. We also take time out to honor a legend of New Orleans and soul music in general, Mr. Willie Tee.

BBC Breakfast 20th December 2011. Pete Waterman and Elaine Constantine discuss Northern Soul. Elaine’s film looks very promising and authentic, the music choices are great and I can hardly wait to see it.

Great version of the Jimmy Radcliffe classic ender. Born Irma Lee, as a teen she sang with a Baptist church choir, auditioning for Specialty Records as a 13-year old. By the age of 19 she had been married twice and had four children. Keeping her second ex-husband’s surname, she worked as a waitress in New Orleans, occasionally singing with bandleader Tommy Ridgley, who helped her land a record deal with the local Ron label. Her first single, “(You Can Have My Husband but) Don’t Mess with My Man,” was released in spring 1960, and reached number 22 on the Billboard R&B chart.
She then began recording on the Minit label, working with songwriter and producer Allen Toussaint on songs including “It’s Raining” and “Ruler of my Heart”, which was later reinterpreted by Otis Redding as “Pain In My Heart”. Imperial Records acquired Minit in 1963, and a string of successful releases followed. These included “Wish Someone Would Care” (her biggest national hit), its B-side “Break-a-Way” (later covered by Tracey Ullman among others), “Anyone Who Knows What Love Is” (co-written by the young Randy Newman), and “Time Is on My Side” (a song previously recorded by Kai Winding, and later by the Rolling Stones).
Although her first four Imperial singles all charted on Billboard’s pop chart, later releases were less successful, and, unlike her contemporaries Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight and Dionne Warwick she never managed to cross over into mainstream commercial success. She recorded for Chess Records in 1967/68 with some success, the Otis Redding song “Good To Me” reaching the R&B chart. She then relocated to California, releasing records on various small labels, before returning to Louisiana, and in the early 1980s opened her own club, the Lion’s Den.
