For those of you who seek the most elusive format of the Northern Soul anthems, how about this sasquatch-rare 1967 Canadian press of a timeless NS theme tune!

For the Northern Soul Class of '76... here is a truly indelible mid-summer experience, with the power to reunite you with those Saturday evenings that swiftly turned into Sunday mornings; with your clothes sodden with perspiration, as the dawn-chill penetrated through to your skin.. as your inadequate attire was laid bare to the British weather...and the only thought you had on your mind was

"Wow what a night!" "Cannot wait until next weekend" it was so worth it to have to brave that walk to the car in totally inadequate soaking wet clothing.

It is powerful statements like “ I Walked Away” that made these times, life affirming experiences. Even after 45 years down the line, "I Walked Away" catapults you back to just the best of times. Made indelible by a pulsating driving production, harnessed by passionate snarling vocal delivered by one of Northern Soul’s true demigods.

THIS IS UNFORGETTABLE NORTHERN SOUL! as a Canadian press I've forgotten the last time I encountered a copy...

Condition Report

two flawless Canadian labels, fine clean unblemished orange, yellow and black perfectness. The vinyl reveals only the lightest of wispy hairlines when carefully angled in the light, pressed on that high fidelity top quality Capitol vinyl, do not even whisper. A strong clean Mint - throughout a fabulous example of a top drawer classic in its rarest outfit.
