Description

As a 1966 UK RED & WHITE DEMO this disc is one of the most important, most precious British Soul 45s is possible to own!

A timeless slab of Northern Soul, an anthem awaits you. with flawless labels & vinyl. An investment piece sitting high in the priorities of UK collectors, it's a Holy Grail many have dreamt of owning most of their lives.

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

From the very embryonic years of Northern Soul Twisted Wheel, King Mojo etc “Looking For You” has been a treasured dance floor classic. With that’s x-factor ingredient, that prevents it ever becoming tiresome to hear. Those Jerry Ragovoy desperately searching lyrics woven into Garry Sherman's mighty arrangement ; unwinding with a flurry of crashing piano notes, ringing vibes collide with an aerial 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, in it's least seen most wanted format.

A near perfect RED & WHITE DEMO now you can drool.
