“After scouring record shops, markets and the internet for the best music for our sets we became increasingly frustrated at the cost and poor quality of the records that we wanted to play out. Whilst being happy to use digital alternatives in their place, good quality WAVs for some of the more obscure tracks became near impossible to find. So from day one we began to make a list of all the tracks we played out that were unobtainable on vinyl and those we could only have dreamt of playing that it seemed were lost to time. This list became the bedrock for Deptford Northern Soul Club Records, and with the help of Northern fans up and down the UK it grew to the point where we began searching for the rights and the highest quality audio to reissue. We are so excited to begin sharing releases soon. KTF!” Will and Lewis, 2019
Two brass-powered monster tracks from Deptford Northern Soul Club Records. Irene And The Scotts 1967 SMASH Records 45 goes for around £150 a copy. A Detroit soul side arranged by the legendary Dennis Coffey, produced by Motown man Bob Babbitt and co-written by Ray Monette (later a member of Motown act Rare Earth). Featuring the mysterious Irene’s punchy torch vocal backed by Chicago soul band The Scott Brothers. Rife with brass stabs and a glorious sax break, an absolute floor filling gem.
Backed with The Chantels’ Indian Giver from 1966, which first appeared on the Verve label (a copy of which would now fetch around £275 a throw).
A super-rare soul side from the Bronx-based all-girl doo wop pop outfit who found the funk in the mid-‘60s. Delivered over a hypnotic backbeat, ‘Indian Giver’ is a horn-laden uptempo groove with a drummer on double-time. An absolute handclapping, split-inducing dance classic.
