A hauntingly brilliant 1965 Esmond Edwards Chicago project, made extra special by the presence of the talented Jazz Bassist and arranger extraordinaire Richard Evans.

The contrasting combination of booming double bass, plucking violins, aerial horns, experimental jazzy Hammond organ notes; A cocktail enhanced to the maximum when that songbird fly over with shrill choruses of "What Can I Do". All this cradling George Kirby "The Showman's" expressive voice as it weaves it's way through this deliciously moody groove. That suddenly changes gear as it powers its way up, towards an awesome fanfare of trumpets, an instrumental break of real muscle.

Proper Northern Soul, a moody sulking mid-paced dancer, you can never tire of hearing..

Such a fantastic tune, personally I adore it. Especially in this attractive clean condition.
