A fearsome snarling explosion of Northern Soul, a real-deal stomper that is currently breaking big across the UK. With long-standing eminent Northern Soul DJs like Nige Brown firmly behind its dancefloor igniting powers.

Clarence Murray’s fourth, last and rarest 45 for Shelby Singleton's SSS International records of Nashville. We've all long adored Clarence's raucous "Torch" classic "Don't Talk Like That". With the much-rarer "Let's Get On With It " inexplicably living in the shadows of its predecessor's prowess. Whether that be because this disc is infinitely rarer than his long-standing classic or for some unknown reason it got passed over by the DJ's in previous decades? But recently it has risen up to become one of the hottest Northern Soul dancefloor destroyers on the circuit today.

Now Buckle up, click the soundfile and prepare for lift-off of this rocket-fuelled pounder. The prolific songwriter Ben Peters song springs to life, as long term producer for both Clarence and Mickey Murray sessions, displays his penchant for the devastating brass presence; Nashville's Bobby Smith does not disappoint as he summons up a Tennessee based horn section to demolish the studio. A booming barrage of hard-blown brass rings out carrying Clarence from one growling high to the next; his beast-like guttural vocal perfectly complimenting the insanely potent backing track

Right up their with those "caged animal" Northern Soul "R&B greats" like Jimmy Robbins, Bud Harper, Ricky Allen etc. etc. this emerging tune bristles with all the same destructive charms...

A real full-throttle stomper & some... Nigel can pick ‘em, Mr. Brown adds another notch cut into his long stick of Northern Soul hit-picks.
