Art Wheeler and the Revels - Charlena / The Rub - Million-Air 7777

Art Wheeler and the Revels

Charlena / The Rub

Million-Air : 7777 (45s)

Any DJ fancy dropping a hand-grenade onto the dancefloor, next time out?

Stand back, prepare yourself for an attention seeking bass-line surge to enter your space. In a wave of snarling vocals and screeching Sax, Art Wheeler spears his voice forward, into an insane swamp of belligerent attitude. Passion dripping from every note! Taking on a "Line & Track" persona.. a style that absolutely crammed the Northern Soul dancefloors for the last ten years.

This 45 is much-rarer than "Line And Track" and only sneaked out on Ebay because the "wrong" side was listed and sound-filed.."The Rub" is a wild R&B shaker but lacks the seamless Northern Soul pulses to become a dancefloor force.
On the other hand "CHARLENA" certainly does. Wicked Saxophone antics, unforgiving Bass guitar, out of control vocals full of angst and conviction.

Our opinion this rarity, Art's least seen of his 10 45 releases, all elusive, all obscure and all benefiting from his boundless energy and grit.

Take a listen, you have to be deaf or a "Queen" fan not to instantly recognize it's potential at a packed NS all-nighter.

From June 1965, this snarler ticks all the boxes of Northern Soul, R&B & MOD just like "Aquamen" did. Again the perfect cocktail of Garage, Soul & insanity!

This is the only copy we've ever listed, rarity is assure, just need a high profile DJ's support for another "out-of-the-ordinary" NS Monster to be born..
