An astonishing immaculate copy of this “Ender Of All Enders”

Right from those embryonic Northern Soul nights of the Twisted Wheel, this moving Big-City-Beat-Ballad from the office of Burt Bacharach and Hal David has always been regarded, the ultimate “last record” of a British Soul event.

A 45 that almost a decade later, seamlessly transferred itself to Wigan Casino and beyond. Of course other clubs had different “Enders”.

The Blackpool Mecca’s finale was played out by Young-Holt Trio - California Montage; Cleethorpes Pier was brought to a close by Charles Mann - It’s All Over; the wonderful,Rugby Benn Hall allniter is religiously finished by the mighty march of Ray Pollard’s - The Drifter.

But here is the 45 that started this unique trend of sending your audience home with an uplifting ballad, after they’d exhausted themselves dancing to the very last drop.

Rare condition, is only a fraction of why this 45 is on auction. It’s mainly here to pay homage to the world’s most diverse underground music scene...and the standout quality music it has championed through fully 55 years
..long may it live on.
