We did point out a couple of years ago this Cincinnati-Sizzler would break BIG!

Since then demand has sky-rocketed on the back of the few lucky DJ owners who have championed it's persuasive raw qualities commanding you to dance..

Taking over from where his Northern Soul Monster "I'm Your Man" left off starting to cram the dance-floors and rattle a few ceilings further afield than it's launchpad around the Manchester area a few years back. Every note and snarl is just as intimidatingly motivating as "I'm Your Man" but 50 times rarer. We were anticipating big things from this 45 and now it's happening... there's a buzz as we receive PM's and phone requests seeking a copy.. and that buzz is gonna build into a deafening drone of wanting..

The rap intro is bulldozed by a deluge of horns that Albert's roaring vocal is so very capable of riding.. those rolling bursts of brass punctuated by rattling piano notes. Gravel-coated tonsils spout a case for the Blues.. oh and how..

Looking for a showstopping slab of Northern Soul? At this moment "A Case Of The Blues" is the most compelling piece of R&B you could ever drop the arm on...

SO VERY POWERFUL!!! and it's ceiling has not yet been reached, it's can only get BIGGER!!!

Condition Report

two clean labels, strong gloss on the vinyl, a few light surface marks, occasional soft background totally drowned by the explosive bras and his growling vocal.
