Wigan Casino Monsters (2004) Retail CD
From its 1973 inception until its untimely demise in 1981, Wigan Casino virtually defined Britain's Northern soul club scene — it captured the Northern spirit at its most hedonistic, with all-nighters that are now the stuff of legend. A massive post-Victorian theater-cum-snooker hall, its environment was ideal for dancing, with a sprung wooden floor instead of the concrete flooring common to other clubs; DJs Russ Winstanley, Kev Roberts, and Richard Searling broke more new records than any other club, and in 1978 it was named by Billboard magazine "best disco in the world," beating evenmore… New York's renowned Studio 54 at the peak of its own influence and notoriety. Wigan Casino Monsters is comprised of 25 little-known soul records guaranteed to set the club afire back in the day, with several rare tunes making the CD debut. There's no real thematic consistency besides each song's popularity with Wigan Casino crowds, but that's probably enough in the first place. Highlights include the Echoes' "Why Wonder," Ronnie Forte's "That Was the Whiskey Talkin'," the Del-Larks' "Job Opening (For an Experienced Heart-Mender)," and Sandy Hadley's "Since I Found a Love."
