In the Northern Soul world of collecting authentic originals, and being sure you own an original copy not a counterfeit. No records have given up more disappointment than this thumping slab of NS savagery. In recent years we have discovered to our dismay, a sneaky 70's counterfeit that crept onto the market, one of those "Wobbly Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport.." pressings, with convincing labels but no matrix, wrong deadwax width and markings.

So here's an authentic 1966 press with the raised ARP stamp in both A & B sides of the deadwax. Absolutely no disputing authenticity of the summer of '66 creation..

So now click the soundfile to unleash an almighty juggernaut of belligerent Northern Soul. The great Arthur Wright's input is evident as aggressive guitar pulses reverberate, snappy handclaps decorated the insistent rhythms and Freddie's imposing vocal takes the reigns and real Northern Soul drives on through. A record that leaves the listener shell-shocked, the dancer breathless and the DJ, very smug as the dancefloor fills to overflowing.

A chance to own the real deal.

WARNING...Buckle up before clicking the soundfile.
