Wigan Casino and Northern Soul footage from ‘This England’ (1977)

Last week I posted the Plan B video ‘Stay Too Long’, which looked like a great night out if you were in your Twenties. And British. Because we do like to get mashed don’t we? Anyway, in that video there is a little section where some guys are doing some Northern Soul moves, and it was a very nice addition to an entertaining video. So, why don’t we look at some people from the 70’s doing some amazing Northern Soul dancing. It is a spectacle. Wonder how many people lost a tooth when those high-kicks started flying around? This is a documentary from 1977, part of the ITV series ‘This England’. You get to hear some wonderful music as well, like Judy Street singing ‘What’. The quality is not great, but it is out on DVD now as well.

Enjoy.
