Description

One of the hardest One-derful 45's to find, and ironically one the finest, giving up two steaming slabs of Northern Soul with the stamp of Monk Higgins seeping out on every note.

Bernice "Duke Of Earl" Williams and Honk Higgins collaborate to craft a blend of sizzling harmonies holding onto a blaring brass dominated arrangement. Vocally superb, irresistibly danceable..

The flipside the team ratchet up the performance a ruthless level of Northern Soul..

What sits in grooves of these two sides, screams "under-valued" "neglected" "passed over" .... it is the Jamie Vardy of Northern Soul, giving the owner far more than the perceived price tag suggests..
I hadn't heard the flipside for an age. Once I'd refreshed my mind with a play, I must say I was very close to not letting it go to auction and keeping it. "Who You Gonna Love" for me is the better of the two great sides, and received little or no Northern Soul exposure. A juggernaut poised for an out of control intrusion on the NS dancefloor, a careering runaway-truck that takes no prisoners, whilst sweeping you aside on a torrent of Monk Higgins horns..

Two gargantuan Chicago beasts that need to escape the confines of the NS collections and let loose to rip the dancers to shreds..

This is carnivorous Northern Soul with an insatiable appetite ..
