Extremely, hard to acquire, totally killer modern soul dancer, from The Mighty Pope, few DJs/collectors can boast of ownership.

Forget all the inferior versions, reissues, remixes this "Mr. Fortune" on the Canadian Heart label is the real-deal, original take and far superior to anything that followed it..

The attempted reissue by "Sureshot Symphony Solution Featuring The Mighty Pope" remix was totally ruined by the unnecessary electric guitar antics. The reissues and kudos-less represses of this funky-edge Northern Soul do not sit well on the DJ's turntable. This is Northern Soul modern-dance in it's purist form, is the only way for any self respecting DJ or collector to try and acquire it in. So very in-demand, so rarely seen for sale! with the bonus of being CANADIAN ONLY!

That in-your-face growling vocal of Mighty Pope ideally heads up this percussion pelted dancer, "Pope's" vocal soars overhead, as chanting teammates bang out the mantra. Riding a barrage of accomplished trumpet playing, elevating the recording to yet another level. This is the pinnacle of Funk-infused Northern Soul at its most-elusive; Instantly, powerfully motivating, a muscular dancer impressing with it's most imposing nature from the very first note. An instant dancefloor detonator with a difference.

An invitation to own it in its ultimate original form, a copy unblemished in every way.
