The sight of some labels just send seismic shivers through the veins and crate-diggers and collectors alike; William Bell's Atlanta based "Peachtree" is one those rare labels, where every record is sought after and valuable. Invariably offering a thumping cultured dance session one side and in true William Bell style a despairing journey into distilled Deep Soul on the other. An iconic label especially in Japan.

The multi-talented Theo George Odell, tailor to the stars and acclaimed throughout Georgia and beyond, for his rasping expressive vocal and his haute couture artistry. Whilst also earning a living as Atlanta's top MC, with his sparkling charismatic style in constant demand, a style that also came across on the far too few studio recordings.

This one, his 4th 45 release he gives up explosive Northern Soul and beseeching Deep Soul .

So buckle up, the tailor is about to take you on an explosive helter-skelter ride of p[roper-real-deal Northern Soul. A bombardment of brass clears the way for George's James Brown inspired snarling passion, demanding his girl "GETS UP OFF" driven by William Bell's Memphis experience of the "horn section" amplified to another level of ferocity, sweeping you along by a torrent of brutal enthusiasm.

THIS IS PROPER NORTHERN SOUL - unforgiving and relentless!!

Flip it over for a Deep Soul masterpiece, as George spills his insides out onto the floor; painting a picture of his own experience of love. Considered by Deep Soul scholars as one of the purest recordings of despair ever committed to vinyl. George's exquisitely painful screams controlled to the nth degree, tearing at the listeners heart with his palpable misery.

Two killer sides, on a label only marginally more desirable than "Shrine"
