There is not a more Soulful encounter with despair, ever to have graced a Northern Soul dancefloor.

An act of unrecognized genius from Senator Jones at the time, as he chose this masterpiece ti be the flipside. If it wasn't for the European Rare Soul scene this masterpiece may have passed the world by.

"How Many More Years.. Are You Gonna Wreck My Life" is the most beseeching opening for a song. Guitar Ray's pleading vocal paints a picture of hopelessness for an aging man how's lost his lover to a younger man..

Wow, this song penetrates your very being, with it's convincing delivery and beautifully sympathetic horns..the [hars on my arms stand as I listen to his sad situation..

If rare dance Soul gets any better than this I've yet to hear it..
