Unicorn Rare! A big spin for John Vincent one of the very few DJs to ever own a copy!

Northern Soul most prolific arranger crosses the Hudson to guide Northern Soul's most-legendary vocal-group through a colossal production, showcasing a group so comfortable with themselves.

Listen to those breathtaking vocal inter-changes, the rolling highs and lows of the alternate voices; the perfectness of their delivery, totally honed into each other's mood. This is vocal-group Northern Soul at it's most impressive even though it takes a couple of plays for it to click in your head, exactly what this unique gathering created.

Charlie Calello's penchant for the "showy" production exceeds even his exquisite skills musical elevation, that he displayed on each and every Four Seasons recording it was at the helm of; this time instead of guiding blue-eyed Jersey Boys he mentors real-deal ghetto born Soul Men. Through a record that the Four Seasons would surely have loved to perform, but would never have matched the richness of the opening vocal... that immediately grabs your attention.

Big full orchestra and the cooing backers, lay a carpet of sound for the boys to stroll through; then the falsetto takes his turn after the baritone takes pause, the silky plea "Won't You Please Let Me In, I Wanna Be "In" I tired of being "out"... ooh Baby" is truly delicious. The zipping string, the fanfare of trumpets, thundering kettle drums "Calello" has it all going on and the "Dell-Larks" totally immerse themselves in this prodigious production...worthy of a "Broadway Show"

I LOVE IT!!! I also love it's challenging ownership status, of only a very few copies known to actually exist.
