16 stunning tracks celebrating the spirit of the Northern Soul All-Dayer. A breathtaking compilation featuring modern soul rarities and crossover classics Includes a number of collector’s items appearing on compilation for the very first time.


The All-Dayer has been a part of the Northern Soul scene since the early 70s. It evolved at a time when rare club soul was moving away from its roots in Detroit and experimenting with a new beat that coalesced at the legendary Manchester Ritz.


The Ritz reigned supreme as the country’s most forward-thinking All-Dayer, attracting the top DJs including its founder Neil Rushton, Richard Searling, Colin Curtis and Ian Levine. Curtis and Levine had whole-heartedly embraced, and came to define, the Modern Soul movement at Blackpool Mecca’s Highland Room. They brought to the Ritz their own unique music blend and their loyal following. Searling had an equally upfront music policy but continued to mix it up.
