Starting with Ewan MacColl's 'Dirty Old Town', written about the great metropolis and capturing the effects of 200 years of industrial revolution and its aftermath, "Manchester; A City United In Music" moves through the 60s beat revolution, Strawberry Studios pop era, northern punk, indie mayhem and on to the Madchester years, culminating with an Oasis modern day-anthem. The tracks vary from the multi-million selling hits of Wayne Fontana, 10cc, Herman's Hermits and Simply Red to the cult musical art of Haydock's Rockhouse, Wynder K Frog and Smack. Well-known artists like the Hollies, Georgie Fame and John Mayall are heard on some of their lesser-known but top-notch tracks.
