The Verve / A Northern Soul 2LP vinyl


Another sought-after and very expensive rarity will lose its value overnight, since Universal Music will reissue The Verve‘s second studio album, A Northern Soul, as a 2LP vinyl set in August.

Like many long-players of this era, the 1995 album received only a very limited release on vinyl in the UK and only came out on CD and cassette in the States. The original vinyl is therefore VERY expensive on the used market.

Three singles were issued from A Northern Soul: This Is Music, On Your Own and History. They were all top 40 hits although none of them managed to penetrate the UK top 20. Big hits would come of course, from 1997’s Urban Hymns (three top 10 singles, including a number one).

This double vinyl set of A Northern Soul is slated for release on 26 August 2016.
