Description

Lovers of the Northern Soul black label STOCK copy will already know this is no easy find, they will also be aware this spring of 1966 Los Angeles creation gives up not one but two essential Northern Soul experiences.

The top side is time-honoured Northern Soul stomping, back-flippin', head-spinning, high-kicking stompin' Northern Soul. Drenched in squealing girls, pumping brass and Jerry fully qualified vocal riding the storm. Northern Soul at it's most-obvious..

Flip it over, and California does New York, as Jerry Fuller takes inspiration from the Brill building conveys Beat Ballad Heaven as he meanders through his own composition, his muscular voice matching up to the huge orchestral presence.

"Turn To Me" is just the most grandiose example of the genre, a masterpiece that screams Sunday chill out or last record of your set..nothing short of brilliant. Making "Spectors" wall of sound seem feeble, this builds and explodes into the most moving Big City Sound imaginable..
