Stunning early 80's dancer from this much-loved Soulman, that amazingly was unissued by Prelude in the USA as a 45 or a 12". Only available Stateside as an album track on his highly regarded "Main Attraction" album.

This seriously rare 45 is the 3.59 edit version, as opposed to the 4:57 UK 12" cut and the USA album track. To own the tight, to the point, 3.59 edit you have to acquire the 1981 45 rpm 7" that was UK only and never sold a bean upon release.

Check out this real-deal dance tune from a master of Soul-Dance guided by the inimitable pairing of Rodney Brown & Willie Lester, who have a long list of standout dance tines to their credit. Notable for avoiding "Disco" cliches, whilst capturing the essence of TSOP without plagiarizing the sound. The "Very Last Drop" is a magnificent cocktail of Soul/Jazz-Funk, uplifting dance that was a club classic in the 80's, usually played from the 12" version.

The 7" edit PROMO is RARE and this copy is in unsurpassed condition.

As good as it gets, as rare as it gets, if you collect "British 7's" you will be enthusiastically nodding in agreement.
