WOW now here's somethin' that's super RARE!

Frankie Presnell again pleasures the Northern Soul fraternity with a snarling slab of raw Northern Soul.

1968 D.I.Y. tiny run 45, that apparently was only available at their local performances, and a few neighborhood Record Shops it was dropped off in. It is certainly far rarer than the 45s recorded for JCP. Jimmy Capps Productions had a strong distributing network, so the group's JCP discs occasionally surface. This self promoted 45, is a different matter all together.

Click the sound file is you delight in "Blue-Eyed" excellence of the Carolinas, silly question, as all Northern Soul admirers just adore the 60's Carolina "Sound"

Lead vocal is suitably harsh, if your gonna portray wicked woman do it up right. Thundering kettle drums & belligerent horns accompany Frankie's abrasive voice.. a perfect Northern Soul combination that climaxes with an insane assault of aggression fueled trumpeting.

Northern Soul dancers do not come with more "edge" than this beauty, a record so far suppressed by it's own rarity. In the right hands, with "Nighter" exposure..

an angry "Beast" of a dancer will be unleashed!
