A meeting of the minds!

Cliff Goldstein & Arthur Wright, a collaboration that so often set the standard for Los Angeles Northern Soul. We have grown to expect something special from this pairing, but when that work is done with members from New Orleans premier Soul Group "The Barons" then you just know nothing but distilled excellence is about to unfold.

Andy teams up with Capitol lyricist Lester "House Next Door" Carr to craft a mid-tempo groove that matches up to, such other magnificent NS floaters as Buddy Smith, Chuck Holiday and the like. An atmospheric session with few equals... as Andrew Fisher's seasoned gravel-coated vocal is softly cradled by "the Encores" who could easily be other members of The New Orleans Barons, The result is a vocal group support of the highest order for this infectious soulful beater.

Flip it over Mr. Fisher and Barons team mate George Bonney who co-writes the lyrics for a bold brass driven Northern Soul stomper - again enriched by slick vocal-group backing with Cliff Goldsmith directed blaring horns! Spine tingling stuff! No matter which side you drop the arm on.

Two awesome examples of a "moonlighting" session, bring together a few out-of-towners to construct a pair of Northern Soul belters, sitting here in that standard of condition you've always dreamed of owning...

Exception rare Northern soul, twice over!
