The dancefloor battle cry of every Northern Soul Sister for nearly 4 decades, with no hint of the wildebeest stampede it triggers to the the dancefloor ever looking like slowing down.

Play this Mr. DJ and the rest of the night will be easy, it's a floorpacker that everyone adores.

Is it her confident voice that draws us into it's web of charm or is it Jimmy Brinson's uncomplicated arrangement, as he bravely ignores all the "Disco" cliches of the time and keeps it pure with zipping strings, as clip-clop pulses of easy to dance to rhythms fill the air... or maybe it is Jan's uplifting pzazz as, this songbird injects even more weight and power into her voice as the recording grows.

Just a stunning record unfolds, with Jan Jones & Jimmy Brinson being totally independent of all outside influences - how refreshing.

It's a monster and always will be!
