The Golden World Story
Thirty Five Years On

By the mid to late seventies, Northern Soul had developed into a huge underground scene and it is fair to say that tens of thousands of discs from the Golden World Recording Company now reside in the United Kingdom.

Information has been gathered, turned into discographies and printed in fanzines. Fans were keen to know more about these unknown Detroiters.

This photograph shows one such fan, Dougie Ward from Glasgow in Scotland. 

I am indebted to Dougie for lending me his collection of Golden World discs as the detail thereon provided the backbone for this story.
