This truly awesome "Dynodynamics" 60's Philly creation liberated from solitary confinement by the intrepid Grapevine label, has over the last decade risen from a must own new release. Up into an appreciated DJ drop, as it's instant bass-line and prodding piano demands DANCE, as the silky Eddie Holman vocal beckons you to the floor.

The demand for the vinyl single is stronger than ever, as it receives an inevitable second lease of life! As copies have long evaporated into collections

An original direct cut 7" acetate with unbeatable fidelity, and so attractive to the many "Grapevine" completists lining up for anything "different" and rare within Grapevine enviable two catalogs..

Philadelphia's "Dynodynamic" machine of Eddie Holman, Johnny Stiles, Luther Randolph, Weldon McDougal was a conveyor-belt of standout Soul delights during the 60's serving up a plethora of Northern Soul greats. This addictive song somehow was left to hibernate in the vaults.. perhaps a little too "different" at the time; but today, so deliciously different and perfect Northern Soul food.

This is a listing aimed at dedicated British & Grapevine collectors and DJ's who want to elevate a dancefloor, but also to add to the interesting tapestry of our weekly auction that we hope makes for good reading, exciting listening and of course suiting all the pockets of our members.

We love the song.. and we adore genuine acetates..

Condition Report

Looks like this copy only received a cursory play from the privileged DJ who was given it to promote has the look, the feel and the smell of a record that has just lay filed and forgotten for the last 16 years. Just a solitary minuscule blemish, otherwise flawless. Both labels are likewise.
