5. Gettin' to me (CDKEND181)-named for great 'lost' Ben E. King track that kicks it off
6.Northern Soul's Classiest rarities Vol.1 (Kent CDKEND 192) although I love Vol. 2 as well
7.Okeh - a Northern Soul Obsession vol. 1 (Kent CDKEND 132)
8. Movers and Soothers-(Goldmine GSCD81)- not necessarily Northern Soul but a compilation that means a lot to me.
9. Wigan Casino Story - (Goldmine GSCD51)- Great, great compilation featuring that all important 3 before 8 -may no longer be in print (sorry!).
10. A Cellarful of Motown Vol.1, although I love Vol. 2 as well.
There are at least five compilations I am really sad I could not include and is purely down to my personal taste. I may return to this topic!
