The very first local label for this wonderfully vibrant 1968 Michigan dance groove; the vinyl press as opposed to the styrene "Mainstream" label national issue.

Relentlessly stabbing horns set the scene for Jackey's beseeching vocal to instantly pull you into his love-dilemma. That has the complete opposite affect of uplifting your experience into the realms of a raise-your-arms dancer. A remarkable contradiction of a joyous uplifting tune delivering imploring lyrics by begging vocal and it works so well.

There are of course various other versions and they are all wonderful in their own ways. But with all the writers bias I'm trying to avoid, I adore this one the most...Jacky's D.I.Y. project ripples with vibes and horns supporting the desperation in his voice, cradles away any sadness you may otherwise felt. It works so well, not at any point does the uplift ever fade to grey.

Inspiring in the extreme, an instant dancefloor pleaser that has yet to reach it's potential peak, as allniter airings have been far too few for such glaring quality.

a chance for those DJs who recognised, the few unplayed "greats" requiring a revisit.

PS do no overlook the Deep Soul flipside where Jackey again shows off the get-on-your-knees vocal.
