An unblemished August 1967 British Green & White demo, of the best-loved Jay And The Americans Northern Soul classic. Today drawing your eye in, is a flawless archive promo copy, in this recordings rarest most-desirable, most-attractive and of course rarest format.

A Trade Martin & Joe Wissert production two New Yorkers, famed for Latin influence "Brill Building" big-hitters. Trade Martin of course has an impressive catalogue of meaty Northern Soul productions he has been involved in.

Written by group member Marty Sanders brilliantly, delivered by the silky David Blatt vocal aka Jay Black (lead singer who had replaced Jay Traynor back in 1964) & Kenny Vance. This uplifting Northern Soul dancer was simultaneously a Wigan Casino & Cleethorpes Pier dancefloor favourite. From the very first note, this fluid dancer is a spirit-lifting, feelgood explosion of goodness. Beautifully harmonized, inspiring NS dance experience giving up an avalanche of euphoria, the crowd completely loved it.

One of the most-popular of all the blue-eyed male harmony productions ever to emerge from a the Big Apple; a city drenched in so many multi-cultural musical influences.

This is a flawless archive copy look, listen you will not locare a finer example.
