Keep On Keeping On
All those years ago when I was a moody teenager today's track was one of those songs that I immediately thought of when someone mentioned Northern Soul, it was one of the first tracks on the northern compilation that a girl call called Lynn gave me that whetted my appetite and led to a30/31 year and counting love affair with this music. The song was recorded by N.F. Porter, it would be years before I found out the first name was Nolan and later still that the F was for Fredrick, not that it's of much relevance.The single came out on the Lizard label in 1971. I had a dodgy boot of this for quite a few years until last year when I picked up the RSD release with the now more popular "If I Could Only Be Sure" on the flip. Apparently Joy Division were asked to cover this. I am having difficulty imagining how that would have sounded.
