Billy's rarest 45 by far, a relative unknown spitting out a snarling, stomping allniter sound drenched in attitude.

Billy was an integral part of the legendary R&B group The Coasters, but tat didn't stop him writing and producing his own material from time to time. This mid-60's D.I.Y. session underlines who was the energy fireball within the "Coasters" team. His screaming style is backed up with a full group vocal chorus, hardened brass section belt out pure, pumping classic style Northern Soul.

Every ingredient we loved, mixed into those records from days of The Torch, Catacombs, Wigan Casino, The Mecca are here in raging abundance. An explosive barrage of brass opens proceedings for Billy's strutting lead vocal, searing vocal choruses hit those high-notes as Billy quotes dances like the "Philly Dog" as he entices his "Foxey Lady" to move.

Real-deal old-school Northern Soul classic style, that will leave you wondering why this disc hasn't become a timeless classic already. talked about in the same breath as the likes of Jimmy Raye etc. The answer lies that back in the day this was an extremely rare 45. Today it is just as rare, and at no time during the 50 years has there been copies available for a concerted countrywide NS DJ support. Consequently Billy Guy's rarest disc hasn't really had the chance to break out all over a full Northern Soul dancefloor..

It will do for sure, one day and the effect will be devastation, dancefloor mayhem guaranteed if sandwiched between two floor packer certs...

A listing for the DJ with hankerings for the "Old-School" Northern Soul, the style that ignites, spins, backdrops and whoops of joy when blasted into a crowd ..

Also for the DJ who is a leader not a follower... as "Foxey Baby's" potential is glaringly obvious, on the right hands.

X on a-side label, vinyl reveals only a few feeble hairlines under direct light. Strong clean Ex+ plays flawless
