Description

A timeless Northern Soul anthems with flawless vinyl, that’s the new gold rush of record collecting today.

Although markerted in the UK as a flip side. "Looking For You" in the USA was the a-side, but discouraging USA sales, persuaded EMI to relegastre it to true B-side in the British marketplace.

From the very embryonic years of Northern Soul “Looking For You” has been a treasured dance floor classic. With that’s x-factor ingredient, that prevents it ever becoming played out.

Those desperate lyrics woven into Garry Sherman's mighty arrangement ; unwinding with a flurry of crashing piano notes, ringing vibes collide with bombardment of brass. Garry Sherman was a conductor who cut no corners, spared no expense to achieve his desired level of power... a true master of New York’s Big City sound.

As he did with Paul Anka's "I Can't Help Loving You" and 100's of other huge Brill Building sounds, he layers instrument upon instrument, in precise but persuasive order until a volcano of sound erupts, big enough to compliment the power of Garnet's voice.

This is what can happen, when accomplished studio members come together. Jerry Ragovoy, Garry Sherman and Garnet Mimms; a determined threesome pursuing perfection.

BIG, POWERFUL and IMPOSING! A top-drawer Northern Soul classic

A deep-rooted in our club-scene-history embedded in our psyche... proper Northern Soul that nobody ever tires of hearing! A proper tune in enviable condition.
