“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


DNSCR029 - The Hesitations - Soul Superman/ Bobby “Blue” Bland Ain’t No Love (In The Heart Of The City)

A chiming guitar, vibes on full and that heady Motown/Ric Tic drumbeat with a falsetto vocal… what’s not to love?

Originally released on Kapp in 1966 and often bootlegged, copies go for in excess of £100 for this excellent, driving floor filler

The Hesitations have a few northern nuggets to their credit, ‘Soul Superman’ is right up there with the best.

Backed with the super bluesy vocal of the legendary Bobby Bland on an aching tale of loss and regret.

A slow smoochy groove with lyrics of genuine heartache… and all this with a resilient slow motion dance beat and some exquisite brass breaks.

Featuring and a gorgeous vocal-only drop out and a triumphant return from the man who also released the beautiful ‘Shoes’.

Both sides remastered for sprung dancefloor-shaking longevity.
