Dave Godin, David Nathan and Robert Blackmore embarked on the Soul City project in 1966. It was the beginning of a three year journey which would see Soul City open up the world’s first exclusively Soul music record shop outside of America in Deptford, South East London and a start a label which gave Gene Chandler his first UK hit and whose other releases were central to the development of Northern Soul.
