From the f irst crash of the cymbals, you know something special is about to unfold with this week's rare Popcorn/R&B offering.

Hang on Don Hollinger is about to flex his snarling combative vocal through a screaming slab of Miami R&B. This is the highly celebrated Soul man at his uncompromising best!

An artist who sadly never had enough of his work released on vinyl. Mr. Hollinger was certainly one of the finest neglected Soul singers of the last century; just as comfortable with Blues, R&B, Deep Soul, Sweet Soul, with the passion to mold his rugged vocal into any R&B style; effortlessly adjusting to whatever mood was required. All his vinyl is highly prized and very hard to find.

On this session Miami's finest assemble, including Arnold Albury, Clarence Reid, Willie Clarke, Johnny Pearsall craft a compelling slab of ferocious R&B, woven into Popcorn rhythms. The result is a madly addictive dancer, saturated in qualities that have taken it into monster-R&B status.

So click the soundfile to unleash this cult-artist's magnificent vocal his glides his rough-edged voice through an harmonica decorated arrangement, as the bass-line drives the dance rhythms underneath your skin. Steady whacking percussion, perfecting marries with Don's snarling delivery. Proper motivational R&B dancer..

As R&B Northern Soul is measured, this 45 is one of the very finest I've ever encountered, it had me seriously thinking that I need a copy in my DJ box.
A proper All-Nighter tune, perfect for the big system "blast 'em out of their seats!" approach..
