One of the doyens of the Memphis Soul family, Dan Greer pulls in a "Bluff City" dream-team to construct one of his few 45 releases, during his glittering career as a writer, arranger and producer. Carryigng huge consequence within the epicentre of the Memphis Music scene. Particularly a major player at the iconic Goldwax label.

This time collaborating with Willie Mitchell's associate Earl Randle, Dan Greer constructs a Gospel inspired funky dancer showcasing Dan's magnificent voice, and his ability to control and under-stated the usually brutal Memphis Horns, instead of overpowering, they elevate the rich male background harmony choruses, as Dan Greer's rasping vocal flies aloft.

Considered one of the finest and rarest 45's of this sought-after genre that DJ Greg Belson has so successfully championed across the globe. This is "Gospel flavour Modern Soul dance" at it's most impressive. A most-important play for some UK based DJ's also with "Tats" Taylor and other forward thinking Modern Soul DJ's getting behind this classy dancer..

Noting this copy is utterly flawless!
