With no exaggeration, the prospect of owning Northern Soul records of this calibre, is for most collectors / DJs a once in a lifetime, fleeting opportunity...

A Chicago vocal-group Northern Soul Holy Grail of immense power and presence!

...light the touch-paper, strap yourself in and prepare to be rocketed into another NS stratosphere, high-octane g-force vocal group Northern Soul is about to lift-off. A relentless barrage of brass, pelted with thundering kettle drums palpitations, a pulsating backdrop for this brutal harmony group to weave their own composed lyrics into.

Proper Foot-To-The-Floor stomper, right up there alongside those all-time greats like Del-Tours, The Combinations, The Topics, Conquistadors, C.O.D's etc. in terms of sheer vocal group belligerent dancefloor destruction, served up by insistent soulful vocals, this is another exemplary example of the "Chicago Sound" . Urgent vocals woven into a vortex of driving relentlessness, one of the most explosive seriously rare allnighter offerings ever!

This is REAL DEAL PROPER ultra rare Northern Soul at it's most destructive!

with a mid-tempo harmony stroller on the flipside, that also cannot to ignored..
