Originally born in a coffee bar in the city's Brazennose Street in 1963, before later moving to a converted warehouse on Whitworth Street, it quickly developed a reputation as one of the country's finest venues for obscure, imported soul, R&B and ska. Music fans would flock from all around the country to the weekly all-nighters to hear live sets from some of the finest soul artists of the time.
The term 'Northern Soul' was first coined by the journalist Dave Godin following a visit to the Twisted Wheel to describe the distinctive brand of music played there which couldn't be found in London clubs at the time.
This new compilation collects some of the classic tracks that would have been played at the time. The 28 tracks include gems from Little Richard, Bo Didley, Benny Spellman, Ernie K Doe, Solomon Burke, Gene Chandler, Betty Everett, The Dells, Fats Domino and more.
