I think we will stick with the Soul for a bit.
Here is a track that should have been absolutely huge, god alone knows why it wasn't.
Written by Holland-Dozier-Holland, released in 1973 and found in a warehouse by Ian Levine, Love Factory is about as good a mid tempo northern track as you will ever hear.
After reading a lot of articles and books on northern soul and a couple of interviews with Ian Levine, he is in my opinion what we would call up here " a bit of a baw bag" and was responsible for more than a couple of Take That hits but credit where credit is due he did unearth and spin a hell of a lot more northern classics than anybody else and for that reason alone should be applauded.
