Homage to Manchester's iconic Twisted Wheel Club with 14 original tracks culled from the club's R&B and soul history. When the Wheel opened it's doors to Manchester's new wave Modernists in September 1963 - with DJ Roger Eagle behind the decks - the course of rare soul music in the UK was set to change. Eagle was a rare breed R&B pioneer and soul preacher who captured the imagination of the North's musical youth and introduced them to the obscure, unheard, exotic and intoxicating world of black American dance music. Here, we present a soundbite spanning the clubs 8 year reign, and both of its venues. Side A represents the Wheel's R&B roots cemented in Brazennoise Street, while Side B documents the birth of Nothern Soul, forever synonymous with Whitworth Street.
