Just five 45's this talented Soul man released for King, whilst being a valued team member of James Brown's team. It would have been so much more, if JB hadn't had recognized his writing, coaching and organizational prowess wasn't more valuable to him than releasing 45's. So this great singer, more valued in administration and writing took a desk job for JB.

Before you today is Charles Spurlings most sought after 45 for more reasons than it being a rare pristine PROMO copy.

Both sides underline Spurling's writing and arranging, guitar playing capabilities with a killer piece of Northern Soul that will be carrying a much heavier price tag as it starts featuring more often in Top DJ sets. as more and more Soul fans begin to hear this fantastic dancers qualities. Flowing lyrics supported on a bed of guitar rhythm and honkin' horns.. brilliant key changes keep up the driving pace, as the strident tune works it's magic on you. Insistent girls squeal out the choruses accentuating that combative vocal. This really is top-drawer Northern Soul ticking all the boxes to become huge when plays really take off..

As if to emphasize what a loss to Soul recording Charles was when he gave up the microphone for the pen. The flipside is considered by many, including myself, as a Deep Soul ballad of immeasurable proportions! Listen to Charles again writing pleading lyrics giving up love, advice and hope. A song utilizing dreamy girls in the backing, his own emotional vocal thast will rivet your attention to one of the greatest Deep Soul performances ever captured on vinyl!

Two stunning sides both of which have the qualities to take it only upwards in the valuation stakes..
