The origins of rare Northern Soul

Backdrop Records launches rare Northern Soul service

Backdrop Records launches rare Northern Soul service.  Backdrop Records is a North of England based online record shop, specialising in rare Northern Soul vinyl records. Backdrop Records is an independent record shop, a small business with a real passion for authentic Northern Soul vinyl, and Northern Soul music in general. On their web shop you will find a vast range of rare collectable Northern Soul vinyl records, as well as other more popular vinyl of the same genre, including cut price 45’s – and so as well as the rare more expensive finds, some bargains can be picked up too!

Via their website and fully functioning secure ecommerce web shop, Backdrop Records sell a full range of Northern Soul vinyl, including rare USA originals, with prices that range anywhere from £15 to upward of £200 – featuring Barbara and the Uniques, Dee Clark, Drifters, Samantha Jones, and The Coasters, to name but a few. Popular Motown and UK releases are included in their inventory, with artists that everyone will recognise such as Diana Ross and the Supremes, Eddie Holland, Little Richard, Ike and Tina Turner, and The Four Tops. As well as original vinyl, the site also sells reissues which you can buy for as little as £7.50. There really are records that will suit everyone’s tastes and budget.

All original vinyl is graded in a professional record-collector way, grading each record from Mint, to excellent, very good, good, fair and poor, with full explanation on their website of the corresponding conditions. This is an extremely useful way of communicating the condition of the vinyl accurately to the customer who is not there to inspect it physically. Much care is taken when handling, packing and posting the items too, as these are treated as true collectors items with a great value, no matter what the price tag happens to be.

Like the independent record shops back in the day, Backdrop Records is a destination, albeit an online destination. It is somewhere where Northern Soul fans can feel at home, and browse old favourites as well as discover hidden gems. The shop is constantly getting in new stock, and so it is somewhere that fans can regularly come back to browse and pick up new vinyl to add to their forever growing collection, all from the comfort of their own home, or anywhere else they wish to access the website from.
