“Out on the floor each night I’m really moving” the first line in the Dobie Gray 1966 Northern Soul classic track. This painting by David Barrow fuses the spirit of the songs lyrics and the movement of the Northern Soul dance floor into one wonderful painting full of movement and energy.
The Out on the Floor track by Dobie Gray although released in 1996 didn’t achieve any success what so ever until some 9 years later when it reached number 42 in the UK charts. In 2000 Kev Roberts (Wigan Casino DJ) complied the Northern Soul Top 500 based on a survey of Northern soul fans. Dobie Gray’s Out on the Floor came in at a massive number 2, behind Frank Wilson’s – Do I love you indeed I do.
This superb painting by David Barrow is perfect for anyone young or old who love Northern Soul.
