Very few Northern Soul anthems give up such classic style ingredients, no once but twice over, than this New Jersey vocal group explosion,.

Same producer as the Verve “I Love You Baby” Howard Fowles again delights with two frenetic dancers, again shimmering with vocal group unity. Just like he did when with associate Horace Ott part crafting The Charades "Key To My Happiness" again, outrageously potent East Coast Northern Soul that overwhelms your being.

"Potion Of Love" as a flawless archive copy, arguable rarer than The Charades on MGM and every note as good. Perhaps the only reason this magnificent 45 has not sailed past the Charades in value, is that less NS DJ's own a copy, to batter your senses with.

That dual piano intro, introducing a soaring falsetto, is the starting point for NS ecstasy. Rocketing me back to the low-level, drenched in condensation, ceiling of the Catacombs. Where on that small staging, you could stretch up and run your fingertips along dislodging concession of salty water, for an indoors tropical rainfall to cool your overheated head. What a thrill having a shower in over 100 degrees of Northern Soul euphoria. "Potion Of Love" a superior slice of Northern Soul played at a superior club, a memory that shall never leave those who experience it. I had no idea until I gained ownership some time later that the flipside was every second as good, if not better! "Another Love" is just perfect vocal-group Northern Soul dance - if you're seeking an underplayed Northern Soul winner, this disc gives up two sides to die for!

A Northern Soul double hitter of the very highest quality, we feel has been totally under-valued through the years, because it hasn't been played to death by the oldies DJ's..

Today it's second lease of life is ready to spring forth.. no matter which side you drop the arm on!

Get ready for one of the all-time-greats, to hit you twice over...
