Northern Soul Classics - Exus Trek - Luther Ingram Orchestra

I was intending to play this anyway, but coming across the video made it even more compelling. The energy of the music is a perfect soundtrack to the video of the Battle of Orgreave, and is a perfect example of how much the music was, is and will be so fully integrated into northern working-class culture. Don't just listen, but go look at the comments on Youtube that accompany it.

I'm also including Luther Ingram's brilliant vocal as a bonus.
