WATCH OUT a rumbling unstoppable tidal wave of horn saturated Northern Soul is heading your way..

Dole Dickens and his "Double Drive Beat" is on the march with his rarest creation of floor-destroying Northern Soul.

Dole gave our scene many recordings to pursue, notably by Vernon Harrell, Ronnie Forte, Frank Foster, Little Gigi etc. all shuddering with Dole's hard-line approach to dance-Soul. A wall of horns, growling vocals, fearless vocals and his signature "Double Drive Beat" relentless, determined and utterly uncompromising.

This is New York Northern Soul at it's most fearsome, a destroyer of dancefloors, as it demolishes all in it's path. Dole Dickens had a forceful style nobody else ever attempted to imitate. Intimidating to the point of overwhelming power, driving your feet along the dancefloor as this Soul-Tsunami breaks out in full vengence.

Take a listen to his rarest, his best, a real BEAST on the prowl; standing erect above the timid mice of some of the wishy-washy Northern Soul pussyfooting "La La" songs that plague some turntables.

Here it is REAL DEAL NORTHERN SOUL going for the throat and taking no prisoners..

WATCH OUT these are "Boys From The Ghetto" and their heading your way
