There are records when you've not heard in a while, that just lift the hairs on your neck in recognition of their brilliance.

Then there's a rare breed of sound that does that every time you hear it. "I Surrender" is one of those rare tunes that make me pause and await the inevitable rush as that falsetto takes flight..

Philadelphia Northern Soul with the benefit of a truly spectacular vocal, cradled by an arrangement that defies superlative. The opening drum/guitar merger is lacerated by merciless stabbing horns that set the dance rhythms in for Eddie Holman's spectacular falsetto to swoop into.. delivering vocal deferentials only the true greats can attempt; One moments it's a searing falsetto reverberating around your head, then a few key drops and you have a velvety voice "surrendering" his lovbe..

It's brilliant from the first note to the last, it's not gonna cost you a king's ransom, but is any Northern Soul collection complete without a copy.. we think not

You will not encounter a finer Promo copy than this..
