Description


Description

Not only a timeless Twisted Wheel anthem, but also undoubtedly one of the greatest 60's Soul dance recordings ever issued in the United Kingdom! No wonder in more recent times, this classic it has made a strong NS turntable resurgence, as DJ's rightly dig back into our beginnings for the "real-deal" soul dance tunes.

I can't help imagining what it must have been like, in the summer of 1966 to be a MOD standing on the Twisted Wheel dancefloor and to have this relentless avalanche of Soul dropped on you. Wow! it would have blown the dancers minds. As it demands "dance!" on every note, with every squawking girl chorus the session builds into tsunami of sound, and then as if those New Yorker's somehow knew what the young mid-sixties Brit would crave next, an intrusive Sax Break mounts an attack on the senses.

JUST BRILLIANT!

Does Northern Soul get any more motivational than this? ... perfectly crafted dancer in every way.. so impressive I've even forgot to mention that the condition is pefect!

Click the soundfile, you will like me, will be beamed back to that fabled dancefloor in your mind, where we can only imagine what effect this style had upon a teenager fed on a weekday radio diet of The Beatles - Yellow Submarine, Jim Reeves - Distant Drums, Tom Jones - Green Green Grass of Home..... the effect was of course, the launching pad to ignite, what is today the most investigated underground music scenes in the world - THIS NORTHERN SOUL!

PS The flipside "There'll Be No Tomorrow" is for Beat Ballad Heaven fans to check out, an overlooked piece of Brill Building influenced Soul-March of real quality.
