"When I walked down those stairs for the first time, I thought I'd sold my soul to the devil!"
Pete Roberts The Twisted Wheel in Manchester is one of the legendary names in British clubbing history.
Originally launched in a coffee bar in 1963 it quickly developed a reputation as one of the country's finest venues for hearing obscure, imported soul, R&B and ska records.
Music fans would flock from all around the country to the weekly all-nighters to hear these records along with live sets from some of the finest soul artists of the time.
The term 'Northern Soul' was in fact first coined by the journalist Dave Godin following a visit to the Twisted Wheel to describe the distinctive brand of music played there.
Catapult yourself back to the mid-60's with the biggest classics that were once spun at the Twisted Wheel.
