Description


Description

in 1970 THE most wanted British release 45 in the country, a record that set the times, all-nite clubs alight. A record that sent every Northern Soul fan scurrying around their local markets, record stores, junk shops in the forlorn hope of discovering a copy. This is from one of the lucky owners from that period.

This listing comes with a lovingly scripted vintage card sleeve from those golden years of Northern Soul development. When the proud owner wrote in marker at the bottom, and filed it away in his collection. That has only recently surfaced after years of careful storage, as he fell out of love with Northern Soul in 1974 when it's underground status was swamped by an explosion inNOrthern Soul popularity..

Read his passion:

"ORIGINAL BRITISH POLYDOR LABEL. IS SO RARE !!! AT ONE TIME / CREWE, EARLY MECCA DAYS, TORCH ETC. THE COUNTRY'S TOP SOUND!

It was too, I know my yearnings of ownership never came to fruition. Neither did many other NS fledglings have to mind-blowing experience of find a copy.

Its legendary power to lift a dance-floor into a marauding army of hand-clapping back-dropping youthfulness, has never diminished; even today the now aged time-served devotees are still triggered into involuntary gymnastics, that can only be described as highly perilous.

The presence of Bobby Paris surfing a brutal blasting brass & string Gene Page arrangement will undoubtedly be catapulting many of you back to 1970 Crewe's "Up The Junction", Blackpool's "Highland Room and Stoke's "Golden Torch".

A chance to own, a play perfect mint minus copy , looking deliciously gorgeous in its Polydor jacket, is surely a mighty tempting slab of nostalgia to resist!
