Description


Description

It would be challenging to find slicker vocal-group harmonies, whilst trawling through the real-deal Northern Soul classics, that enhanced our lives in the late 70's. Or indeed a more impressive saxophone intrusion, or a more compelling Hammond driven 4 beats to the bar, Neal Davenport's keyboard pulses relentlessly hammering out Northern Soul credibility. No wonder this discovery became an instant dancefloor favourite.

THIS IS PROPER NORTHERN SOUL!

Today standing as one of the few enduring classics, seldom surfacing for sale, it's rarity within the constrains of OVO making it a tune you only generally hear when an A-list DJ is at the controls.

As an oldie it is always a delight to hear, not suffering a jot from over-exposure, still saturated in all the ingredients that triggered the dancefloor energy that lifted Wigan Casino & Cleethoropes Pier nights into gymnastic mayhem.

It's got everything required including eternally-rare validity..

a TUNE indeed...!
