Quite a few Soul Jocks were so relieved when the inferior 1971 remake came out on Stateside. As the 1969 "Prophets" original was already a "Twisted Wheel" monster that few had in their collections. The "Creations" remake soon became the "poor man's" and DJ's must-play, a floor-packer, hugely popular All-niter/Youth Club sound. Throughout the 70's, which even triggered reissues from Nottingham based labels Black Magic & Destiny.
Few DJ's or collectors actually owned this Albany, Georgia first recording from the desk of the gifted Roy Smith. Could anyone in 1969 have known of Roy Smith's influence on Georgia blue-eyed Soul music, his "Chantain" music publishing the driving force behind the fabled and long time mysterious "Delphi" label. Oxford Nights, Prophets, The Pallbearers, O'Banion & The Features all came from the same stable, Delphi Records of Albany, Georgia. With Roy Smith being the catalyst for it's wealth of product that has teased Northern Soul collectors for decades.
This Mercury MF 1097 was Delphi's only UK release, and it took "The Wheel" by a storm. A tsunami of dance Soul, of the like never heard before... too potent for words..
In 1969 UK releases were quickly deleted, The Prophets soon followed The Flamingos, Alexander Patton, Rufus Lumley etc into the Wheel folklore of outrageously dance tunes.
