Direct cut 3:33 minute Detroit 10" acetate from the desk of Atac Records Gino Washington and his consistently brilliant team.

Check out those razor-edged strings as they slice into Gino's Soulful delivery. Gino recollects his meeting his true-love. Comparing her to the bitter cold of the Detroit streets, but wherever she walks she melts the ice.. Painting a picture of true love and admiration as they reach a milestone in their relationship. With the Davis Sister adding weight to the arrangement with sweetly pitched harmony choruses.

There is no doubt Gino Washington was a gifted Soul Poet, another in a long line of extreme talents that emerged from this city of turmoil and strife for the black artist. This offering, I rate as his most poignant as his classic production matches those heartfelt lyrics. Top-drawer Northern Soul crossover, on offer here as a unique 10" acetate.

Not only a killer slab of Detroit Northern Soul, it also carries significant Motor City historic kudos also. Cut at the Holland - Dozier - Holland "HDH" studios, in a coverted old threatre at 12813 Grand River Detroit. Building is no longer there, but this acetate is testament to Holland - Dozier - Holland work after leaving Motown in 1968 embarking on what was to become a triumphant journey of faith.
