When it comes to truly magnificent Crossover Northern Soul this Lake Charles, La rarity sits right up there alongside of the likes of Willie Wade, Chuck Cockerham, Frederick Hymes III etc.

"This Is My Last Goodbye" drenched in so much potential for the value to fly off the scale, as the handful that surfaced earlier this century have long since been cocooned in dedicated Soul collections or a few imprisoned by discerninng DJs in their carry-cases. It is the pleading, sorrowful finality convincingly conveyed by a tearful man. All his sadness meshed into a wonderfully enticing mid-tempo Soul filled dance arrangement.

Top-quality Northern Soul crossover at the moment is riding the crest of a wave, with previous "sleepers" like Patti Stokes, Willie Wade busting all previous records, as the demand within the UK, all across Europe and deep into Scandinavia hits an all-time high.

So now listen to Joe Walker - This Is My Last Goodbye - like me you'll instantly realize it's on a matter of time before this elusive winner is joining Willie, Chuck & Frederick in the ranks of the most-wanted.

But also check out the flipside, a superior-Soul journey into a beseeching request from a man in need. Joe gives-up an on-his-knees imploring Deep Soul stroller, a flip-side is just as saturated in distilled need.
