Chicago goes to Philadelphia!

Jerry Butler's most important Northern Soul record in it rarest form, complete with the original UK Mercury mailshot, on 8 1/4" by 10 3/4" letter headed promo letter. An impressively rare coupling...

Take one of the world's most gifted Soul singers, put him in the same studio with the up and coming team that built "The Sound Of Philadelphia" you find yourself wrapped in the charms of 2 Soul recordings to-die-for.

Jerry Butler's composition enhanced by the co-writing of Kenny Gamble & Thom Bell; arranged by Bobby Martin & Thom Bell; produced by Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff crafted one of Northern Sou's best-loved dancefloor favourites. The instantly attention seeking vibraphone intro falls away leaving a seamless Northern Soul dancer, benefiting from Jerry's silky expressive vocal delivery, supported by girl group flurries. As the vibes continue to drive the session, a team of violins zip everything uptight in snowballing production that just bowls you over, with its understated charisma that has held this classic NS 45 aloft for more that 5 decades,

The flipside, a fo=avourite of the writer, is a vocal group assisted gem, an overlooked ballad of infinite charm and quality, distilled class!

Two exquisite sides constructed by the top boys of the Soul music industry, presented here its complete and rarest form. A sparkling red & white demo with the original accompanying promo letter.

Essential British Soul 45 collecting at it's most authentic.
