Northern Soul Gospel Time

Robert Banks - A Mighty Good Way

I first heard this tune as part of the documentary "The Strange World of NOrthern Soul." Gospel music usually didn't cross paths with the Northern Soul crwod, but a nice subset of tunes did make it onto the all-nighter dance floors because, after all, the beat was there. "A Mighty Good Way" starts with some great gospel piano work and then jumps into the "beatin' rhythm" the Northern Soul crowd loved. There's a great sing-along quality to this one, and currently it's my favorite Northern Soul tune.
