Fascinations - Girls Are Out To Get You / You'll Be Sorry - Stateside SS 594 DJ

Fascinations

Girls Are Out To Get You / You'll Be Sorry

Stateside: SS 594 DJ (45s)

February 1967 first British label DEMO in glorious clean condition.

This Twisted Wheel anthem from the desk of Curtis Mayfield was quickly deleted, as were so many EMI 45's when it became blatantly apparent it was not destined for the charts. A bit premature by EMI as it this disc became as popular as "Open The Door To Your Heart" which EMI kept on their catalog selling 1000's over the almost 6 years of availability. It of course because a 60's club favourite. Triggering a 1968 UK SUE reissue, just before the infamous "Soul Sounds" were able to get in there first.

This record has lived in the hearts of Northern Soul fans for over 50 years, and today still ignites the same response it did back in 1966. A Twisted Wheel, Mojo, Dungeon, Nite Owl, monster that became the staple for all Soul clubs in the UK when Island's SUE records made it available, for a few months in 1968

This is Mayfield out-Motownin' Motown as he did so many times before with The Impressions "Can't Satisfy" "You've Been Cheatin'" ..

A record from the Golden Age of Northern Soul, a record that helped lay the cornerstones for The Torch, The Catacombs, Wigan Casino to build upon.

An auction record today, because the timeless classic rarely surfaces in such fine, hardly played condition. Not overlooking as the green & white it is of course considered a British Grail.

Soul Machine

You'd Better Watch Your Fox / Hang On (Just A Little Bit Longer)

Sudden Sound : RI 2707 (45s)

A Northern Soul wrecking ball, a floor destroyer of immense power, that very few NS DJs actually own.

Curled up top-lip, flashes of intimidating canine teeth, are the starting gate, for a guttural growling vocal riding a tsunami of blitzkrieg horns, driven by Gatlin Gun percussion, bludgeoning bass guitar breaks. This real-deal "Allniter" floor-destroyer is about to enter your space.

From the very first blast of horns, the low-blown tremoring burping sax you know this is the start of a stomping journey into proper Northern Soul. Then the stand alone wild-animal vocal, steps up to swallow whole, all that instrumental muscle. Step back, this is no ordinary dancefloor beast. This is totally uncompromising destructive floor-shaker that will change any DJ's set into the most talked about tune of the night... transparent potential that just hits you across the head.

The flipside showcases the other side of the Northern Soul coin, carrying a unique charm that will have you pressing the rewind button.. a fanfare of aerial trumpets introduce a rich purring crooner, so at ease with himself, he will soon have you in his thrall. No matter how much you resist its contradictory style, we guarantee you, the combination of his warming vocal, soaring horns will capture your heart...that "Bill Medley" level of excellence will always get to you in the end.

It's got every Northern Soul ingredient we love...the horns, the strings, the purring vocal, delivering an "Up and Over" Jay Traynor vibes

In my book, two killer examples of the vast array of styles that encompass that so very misunderstood genre of "Northern Soul"
