Description


Description

Whilst buying the A-list Northern Soul anthems it can be a minefield as underlined in recent weeks when a good friend of mine, purchased what was described as a genuine original Gloria Jones black Uptown stock copy, only to discover he had been sold a counterfeit. There is no excuse to that to happen as all the correct matrix details have been documented for neat two decades now.

But what that deceiving black stock copy "fake" has done, is lift the value of the very rare white promo copy, as there is no mistaking its authenticity, the white promo as it has never been counterfeited.

In a vinyl world of counterfeits, bootlegs and reissues it is essential you're armed with the accurate researched information or buy your vinyl from record dealers who know how to spot a "wrong 'un" in this case just a cursory glance at the white promo is obviously a real one. As documented in our Rare Soul Guide documentations.

THIS ORIGINAL The genuine authentic original PROMO press with the etched in matrix. The 3 turn deadwax is 11.50mm wide (deadwax width may vary very slightly only a few mm, as label placement can differ by mm on each press) . The matrix reads 67091 (a gap of 20.11mm) then -1A R-550. The vinyl is .98mm thick at the start of the run-in. "A" in the matrix is straight & sharp, the right had down slope of the A is slightly thick the the left hand downslope.

There you have it, one of the very most important girl vocal Northern Soul classics of all time, arguably the most perfect "to dance to" productions ever , that has illuminated every Northern Soul venue in Great Britain for the last 50 years.

Listen again, to be catapulted back through the decades, to the very best of times, firing up, euphoric memories of your golden years of Northern Soul, an anthem of huge repute!

One of the greatest Northern Soul girl recordings ever made.. and so very, very hard to capture this PROMO the undisputed REAL THING!

But in your excitement of reviving your youth, to not overlook the rather good flipside "How Do You Tell An Angel" where Gloria again displays her magnificent vocal within another Northern Soul dance production.
