Although a whole book, could be written on the importance to the Northern Soul scene this record encapsulates. Both sides universally considered timeless NS anthems. When in August 1966 Decca withdrew it from being released.

It is a case of "no introduction" required for this beyond-iconic trophy record, encased in NS folklore, since the genesis of Northern Soul...

For us mere mortals this is the only "London" way we are going to own this seminal disc, a British rarest-of-the rare trophy.

A family heirloom that few if any collectors would ever be willing to sell.

Act accordingly...

Condition Report

strong clean vinyl, reveals light surface marks, but as you can hear it plays beautifully clean. Note the a-side promo label has a sticker removal scar, just about the word OPEN see images. flipside label is flawless. all house in a clean company sleeve
