It matters not, which side you drop the arm onto, you are guaranteed to be moved onto the dancefloor by an authoiritive John Bowie creation.

Top side has long been a Northern Soul favourite since the late 70s, one of those records nobody has tired of hearing or dancing to. As those mood-shifting vibe beginnings pervade your space, truly haunting. Bowie's rumblinng vocal, gives up ominous lyrics; carrying a warning to his girl, which a shrill girl-group answering chorus amplifies. A pumping Saxophone, driving Bass guitar rhythms, the girls come back in and your hooked..

More recently the thirst for potent productions, within the Beat Ballad Heaven community has stumbled upon a real treasure in the form of "At The End Of The Day"

Blaring horns, cradle John Bowie's imploring voice, enriched by a burping Saxophone and soaring horns.

An artist with an exceptional vocal, a gift for meaningful lyrics and the passion to make it feel with his pleading style..

Two commanding performances, serve up impressive Northern Soul in the best possible condition.
