Description

The brilliance of The Harthon production team gave "The Torch" one of its most popular dancefloor stompers in the form of "Groovin' At The Go-Go". Those Stoke housed dancers responding to an inspiring cocktail of blaring horns, showered with ringing vibes. A combination the became a crowd-pleasing theme; as it was incorporated into more than a few other NS anthems. Great title, intantly welcomed and soon a classic, but unfortunately fell prey to an illegal reissue, as the west coast quickly bootlegged it on Canterbury records.

Back in the golden years, the A-list DJ's would instantly drop a record from their play list if it became reissued or bootlegged so "Groovin' At The Go-Go" quickly faded from memory. With the much superior "I Still Love You" lost before it had chance to make an equal impact on the scene.

Today though "I Still Love You" is the thinking DJ's oldie spin, that you can't help but want to dance to. It is seamless vocal group Northern Soul driven by Motown-esque rhythms. When Thom Bell "borrows" from Eddie Holland & Norman Whitfield's brilliant Temptations track - "Girl, (Why You Wanna Make Blue)" utilizing all those uplifted horns and dance riffs. With Vivian McDougal's sweet vocal pledging her undying love and husband Weldon McDougal ensuring his talent team make another silky Northern Soul irresistible...

Listen and wonder how big would "I Still Love You" have become if that side was consistently played at the Torch..?
