Rare Chicago Northern Soul with teeth!!

The mysterious Earl Jackson, collides with Johnny Pate's team of searing Sister vocals, riding a wave a guitar rhythms, cradled by a barrage of brass.

What an intro!

One of the most motivational Northern Soul awakenings that ever graced a turntable. Those intricate guitar plucks are the starting pistol to the park your drink and head to the floor, to be blown away by a full-blown brass, peppered by those uncredited Chicago Sisters "Doo Wahs".. then Earl's silky vocal hitches a ride on this runaway NS Soul train..

This is an audio time-machine guaranteed to catapult the old-school back to The Torch, The Cats, Va Va's, Blackpool Mecca and later Wigan Casino. Euphoric Northern Soul recall does not get any more potent than this ballistic missile rockets you back in time, to the good-old-days..

Johnny Pate after all was an arranger, producer extraordinaire. Arguably the busiest man in Chicago during the 60's behind so many durable Northern Soul anthems..

and that's what this is....an explosive Northern Soul anthem, ready to be detonated and shower you in feel-good shrapnel...

Condition Report

Note there's a very light green tinge at the bottom of the a-side label, this is its only flaw; as the vinyl is immaculate, the finest I've playing surface I've experienced with this title. A DJ's favourite drop and this copy looks like it has hardly been played.
