Description

The original 1991 100 Club "on-the-door" promo give-away, for its 12th. anniversary: presents Carla Thomas's greatest ever offering to Northern Soul.

An instantly recognizable building intro, now indelible in all the minds of the NS clubber, immediately commands you straight onto the dancefloor,; where the dancers now know every note, every word woven into this lush carpet of strings, vibes and high-pitched sister choruses. Seamlessly fusing, percolating until it boils up into the most-seamless of Northern Soul storms. Decorated by the Memphis Queen's silky vocal.

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 had entered Northern Soul dreamland. A recording that in all honesty knocks-me-stone-cold-dead on my first hearing, and I'm still totally enamored by its charms to this day.

Not many were pressed in the first place, just over 30 years ago, with only the 100 club customers snagging a copy on that anniversary night on Oxford Street at the acclaimed 100 Club in 1991, for me it still stands as the most-memorable of all those consistently great anniversary singles.

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

Flip it over for the previously unissued backing track to the The Counts impossible Shrine 117 45 "Peaches Baby" it's real-dea" Northern Soul instrumental time!
