Description

Original 1991 100 Club "on-the-door" promo, for it's 12th. anniversary of Carla Thomas's greatest offering to Northern Soul.

That instantly recognizable building intro, now indelible in all the minds of the NS clubber, immediately commands you straight onto the dancefloor, they now know every note, every word woven into this lush carpet of strings, vibes and high-pitched sister choruses. Fusing, swirling, boiling up into the most-seamless of Northern Soul storms of perfectness. Decorated by the Memphis Queen's silky vocal. Oh the perfection..

Full marks to Ace/Kent for unearthing this treasure in Fantasy's Berkeley vaults. The first Brit to have heard this on tape, must have thought he have thought he's entered Northern Soul dreamland. A recording that in all honesty knocks-me-stone-cold-dead on my first hearing, and I'm still utterly enamored by it's charms today.

Only so many were pressed, only so many customers got a copy on that anniversary night on Oxford Street at the acclaimed 100 Club in 1991 and to this day it stands as the most-memorable of all the consistently great anniversary singles.

An inexhaustible dancefloor "cert" every time..from the Memphis Queen
