On Bob Stanley's label, following up the acclaimed Popcorn Girls ("this enchanting... enlightening collection is an indispensable window on a rarely celebrated scene” - The Arts Desk) here is a truly exotic mix of soul R&B doo wop and atmospheric instrumentals.

 

This is Croydon Municipal's third retrospective of the Popcorn scene that has run parallel to Northern Soul since its inception in Europe in 1969. It's a delicious and unique blend of sounds from the US, France, Italy based around a moody, shuffling cha cha beat that has recently developed an international following on the mod and soul scenes.

 

• Most tracks available for the first time on CD
• Gorgeous artwork
• Thorough sleevenotes by Saint Etienne's Bob Stanley
• In demand mod, soul and 60s club favourites
