Curtis Anderson with the sought-after rare 4:50 "DM 1879 " mix of his best loved Northern Soul offering.

A Northern Soul classic as the commoner and sadly inferior MD 1932 mix, that eliminates the Hi-Hat drums and driving percussion sound. That makes this DM 1879 session so superior, to it's more often seen brother.

Two Baltimore, "Jimmy's" collaborate on this 1979 Maryland indie; Jimmy Lindsay and Jimmy Stewart, join Melvin Miles & Anton Scott on this club winner with the renewed driving intro..

Harmony vocals whispering "How Can I Tell Her" through a wall of "disco" cliche's until fully 1:16 seconds in Curtis Anderson comes in to elevate the session even higher with his impressive voice..
Rhythmic hand-clapping, wah-wah picking, blasting trumpets, understated background male choruses all mingle into one solid slab of neatly 5 minutes of concrete dance-music. The dramatic instrumental electric drum driven break towards the ending caps off a relentless dance-offering.

The rarest mix, the best mix of a record that has sat at the heart of 70's Northern Soul for nearly 4 decades without any hint of losing it's dancefloor impact.
