Soaring vocals riding uplifting Latin rhythms provided by "The Funk Brothers" giving up all their Motown experience flooding out as Robert White arranges the legendary Bass Guitar genius James Jamerson, Eddie "Bongo" Brown - bongos, percussion provided by Richard Allen and Uriel Jones, Melvin "Wah Wah" Watson, Robert White, with Earl Van Dyke on keyboards, lastly Jack Ashford on tambourine. serving up "as good as it gets" pre-disco Northern Soul 70s Dance.

A call and answer exercise between a boy and girl beautifully played by a fully mixed vocal group. The lead girl’s vocals doubting her man’s credentials as a father declaring “I Won’t Have Any Babies For You”. The lovers debate carried out through the most irresistible arrangement of dance inspiring music you could wish to encounter.

A choir of convincing vocals rain down into jazzy piano rhythms, popping bongos, intricate guitar picking causing a flood of soaring Soul that is simply overwhelmingly brilliant.

I really like the flipside would think the a “Flying The Flag” lyrics would ruin a dance production; but not on this occasion, once again the harmony vocals woven into a Latin inspired backing track, lifts the session into a another recording you just have to appreciate.

We love the flipside too, making this a killer two for one rarity, that is becoming increasingly difficult to acquire, our first copy for over 5 years.
