Soaring Northern Soul...

A dancefloor elevating goodtime, guaranteed to ignite the club every time, into an inescapable state of mutual euphoria; as this so-easy to dance to big-production sends out tidal-waves of razor-sharp strings fused with a swooping girl-choir in enthusiastic support. This is big production New York at its most muscular. With Joanie's saccharin sweet vocal the perfect contrast for lift-off.

Writers & producer Tommy Oliver could never ever have foreseen the affect this joyous Big Apple session would have on the British Northern Soul crowds.. it's irresistible building atmosphere riding on a full orchestra stirred with girl-group unison. Captured here in high fidelity with this 1965 promo press still housed in its birth-sleeve.

Check out the stunning clarity emitted from the high-quality VINYL grooves.


in superb clean condition... it's a floor-packer, a head-turner, a scarce opportunity to own something that guarantees dancefloor reaction!
