Recently hand-picked by Seam Hampsey for his superior, rigidly discerning UK Soul label "Diggin' Deep" where every choice of release, so far have been blindingly supreme.

Before today are two truly breathtaking Bill Haney productions out of Atlanta, Georgia, with both sides written by the artist "Bobby J. Wilburn" himself. Bill Haney did 3 years later persuade Philadelphia's Gamble label to release it after it passed by unnoticed throughout Georgia in 1968. But the 1971 reissue release under the name Bobby Wilburn met with the same response of zero sales. Presumably just too classy and way ahead of it's time. Genuinely extravagantly soulful which ever side you drop the arm on, not a commercial note to be heard anywhere.

Adored by the congregation at discriminating clubs like The Orwell, and always the top subject of conversation whenever superior Crossover rarities are the barstool subject at weekenders like "Soul Essence" Great Yarmouth or Sunday chill-outs at "Groovin' at the Tavern - Derby, "Feed Your Soul - Newark" or the original innovators of the Soulful Sunday chill-out day "The Horse and Groom - Doncaster" where outrageously unrivalled soulfulness rules.

Before you today is Northern Soul crossover so brilliantly delivered, it hurts, which ever side you drop the arm on.

Listen and swoon to an utterly elusive Northern Soul dreamscape of distilled quality, and frustrating rarity.
