101 Northern Soul (UMC)



ノーザン・ソウルのコンピレーションはそれこそ何百種類も出ていて、僕もいい加減買うのはやめようと思っているのだが、これだけ安くて曲がたくさん入っていると、ついつい手が伸びてしまう・・。

アメリカ南部産のソウル・ミュージックをサザン・ソウルと呼ぶのと同様に、シカゴやデトロイトで生まれたソウル・ミュージックをノーザン・ソウルと呼ぶ。と、つい思いがちだし、それもあながち間違っていないような気もする。しかし“ノーザン・ソウル”という呼称はイギリスで生まれたものなのだそう。イギリス人好みのソウル・ミュージックの“ゴールデン・イヤーズ”が1966年あたりに訪れ、それから60年代末にかけての黒人音楽が広く愛されたばかりでなく、70年代に入ってもそれらの音源が時折再発見されイギリスのヒットチャートに登場し続けるという奇妙な現象が起きている。収録曲のチャートアクションを一曲一曲併記してみたが、本国アメリカとイギリスでのヒット年に隔たりがある曲が意外と多くあって面白い。いつの時代にもイギリスの音楽ファンとともにあった“ノーザン・ソウル”が如何なるものだったかを楽しみながら知ることができるひと箱。
