Zeitgeist of sixties rare soul – Richard ‘Popcorn’ Wylie took a little piece of Detroit magic with him when he slipped away on September 7, 2008.

Pianist, songwriter, producer, bandleader and singer, ‘Popcorn’ cut his teeth at the fledgling Motown studios playing on early hits “Shop Around” and “Please Mr Postman” and recording his own version of Barrett Strong’s “Money”.

Wylie recorded 3 singles for Motown and rose to head of A&R before falling out with Berry Gordy and forging his own career in the shadow of Hitsville. Gordy’s loss was our gain as ‘Popcorn’ wrote, recorded and produced a succession of Northern Soul classics beloved and treasured by legions of rare soul fans in the UK.

We are honoured to present the best of the ‘Popcorn’ legacy. “Get ready ‘cause we’re gonna swing…we’re goin’ goin’ goin’ to a happening!”  – Outta Sight
