Darrell Banks

Open The Door To Your Heart / Our Love

Not simply THE most important British Soul 45 to ever come to market. But also quite easily the most exciting record I’ve been in the presence of, in the whole of my record dealing career.

No, this is not an apparition, the Darrell Banks STOCK copy - really does exist, yes it really, really does.

The 48 years, mythical tales and vinyl dreams have now at last come true. When this escapee from the Decca factory scrap-skips, this vision of beauty was found in a deceased former employee’s “Decca/London” hoard.

UNPLAYED and totally MINT

This HOLY GRAIL has since its unearthing been played twice on each side - once by the discoverer to ensure he wasn’t dreaming and it actually played the recordings the label depicted. Then the full sound files were lovingly lifted by Stella @ John Manship Records, to showcase the top quality a mint lifelong filed record emits.

It’s been in my possession now for 2 hours and my pulse is still racing. The high I’m on, is an intoxicating mix of disbelief and awe. I feel like French explorer of the New World, Father Louis Hennepin who allegedly travelled for weeks through uncharted territory, accompanied by an ever-increasing rumbling sound, until he eventually stumbled through a clearing onto the deafening vista of the Niagara Falls.

We’ve hoped, we’ve dreamed, we’ve wished and we’ve prayed for its existence. Our persistent outrageous 48 year long wait has been more than repaid with a solitary PERFECT COPY!

For the Northern Soul collector, this we feel is the most-prestigious 45 it is possible to own. Historically immense.. with both sides giving up the very embodiment of the Northern Soul Sound itself.
