Oh my, how much adore this slab of Texas vocal-group Northern Soul. Carved by the mind of Talmadge Armstrong, no stranger to crafting superior 60’s Northern Soul.

All the superlatives currently cluttering my head, seem inadequate. But every time I hear this tune. My insides turn upside down, similataneously the bristling the hairs on my neck, and flooding my vision, as my eyes well-up with emotion.

I've loved the sound of Northern Soul male-vocal group recordings a lifetime. As a NS pup, it was The Four Tops, Temptations, Impressions... progressing like we all did to The Servicemen, The Salvados, The Tomangoes, Masqueraders etc..

In short this Talmadge Armstrong creation sends shivers down my back.. like only the truly top sounds can..

For me it has everything it takes, for that goose-pimpling moment we have all encountered many, many times whilst listening to superior Northern Soul.

This one still does it for me... and no doubt everyone else who click into that inspiring soundfile..
