For those elite DJ’s who have played the big Northern Soul venues from 1976 to present day, will confirm the vista of a 1/2 full floor, immediately turning into a heaving mass of rhapsodic dancers, is an inspiring moment they will always carry with them.

This record has that take-off power, to heighten the mood, to lift the night, to elevate a DJ set. Play Holly St. James to the big Northern Soul crowd the remainder of your set is easy...

The rumble of kettle drums and ripple of the boy-drummer is the signal to park your drink and join the mass-migration to find a scarce-space to -dance in.

This NS phenomenon has been set in stone for well over 40 years.. just click the sound file, if you need reminding of the effect Holly has on the big crowd at the big events..

Here’s a copy that may end at an affordable price, unlike the vast majority of the listings on these auctions, this 45 has multiple light surface marks. But plays with only the occasional hidden tic or pop looks vg+ plays a grade better.

A rare chance to own an iconic 45 at an affordable price, maybe?

Condition Report

Two clean labels, with only light storage wear. Vinyl reveals multiple light marks under direct light. Visually vg+ plays much better, check out the potent sound file lifted directly off this elusive disc.
