Description

For those of you in pursuit of perfection, whilst foraging for Northern Soul classics..

Here is a Manship Mint that won’t wait until Christmas.

Before the Wigan Casino vs Cleethorthorpes Pier debate takes off, I’m pretty sure this was first aired on that Northern seafront, to rapturous response from the girl contingent at The Pier. If memory serves me right, I found it the same day I found Wakefield Sun - Trypt On Love - at Al Pavlow’s house full of records in Rhode Island. Wakefield Sun was of course Richard’s biggest Casino cover/up at the time; Eddie Jason - Take A Trip On Love - so I was pretty darn chuffed to return from only my 3rd USA adventure with two new 45s for “The Pier” faithful.

I’ve been informed Soul Sam purchased “Gerri” and played it covered up as “Zena Foster”.

Gerri Thomas was an instant dance floor success, so much so it was only a matter of months before it was bootlegged as a yellow label vinyl press..

Here is the unmistakable white promo copy, ready and waiting for those collectors who like to relive the halcyon days of Wigan vs Cleethorpes.

Without the worry of authenticity of the NS classics.
