The "Little Henry" cover-up tat has been rockin' the foundations of Northern Soul since intrepid record hound Henry Atkinson discovered a copy 20 or more years ago.

Since then, Joe has done nothing but trigger dancefloor stampedes across the United Kingdom. From the very ear-catching note this explosive creation has you hooked, but when the lead singer of the Royal Jesters starts his grasping vocal... you are imprisoned by his passion.

Condition Report

Good gloss on vinyl, revealing late surface marks, plays loud, clean and clear. Visually vg+ plays a strong Ex. Light storage wear on a-side label, all silver text clearly legible. Flipside has a tear on the Optimum logo on the O escapes. (see images)
