Lou Pride

Until DJ Ian Levine widened the gap between the sets of the Blackpool Mecca and the Wigan Casino by playing modern 70s records at the former, the UK’s Northern Soul scene was about the syncopated beat of a 1960s soul stomper. This was intentionally disconnected from the 1970s funk that was filling the dance floors of the UK’s capital. But then there was a track like Lou Pride’s ‘I’m Com’un Home In The Morn’un’. Its release on Suemi Records was extremely rare, which always enamoured Northern Soul connoisseurs. But it was able to incorporate a fast tempo and the jazzy groove of early funk to earn its place on any of the aforementioned dance floors.
