Description


Description

The Philly boys go north to New York, crafting yet another Northern Soul Anthem, a much loved favourite, that has over decades and still continues to cause dancefloor chaos, congesting those talc dusted floors all over the world, as it's charismatic qualities just never stop delighting

A NS anthem from the office of John Madara & David White who skilfully guide a magical Leon Huff composition, intricately conducted by Jimmy "The Wiz". The team build immortal Northern Soul.

But what would you expect when a quartet of Soul virtuoso's come together, the names Madara, White, Wisner & Huff always conjure up something significant.
It is more than an anthem, it's a call to "arms", a signal to do your moves, to bathe in euphoric recall as those adolescence "good-times" come flooding back.

But do not overlook the so far neglected flipside, that Len Barry also recorded, it is typicality so "Double Diamond". Another uplifting blue-eyed Northern Soul groove that on it's own, could have become a monster, but got "lost" as the b-side to an immortal great.

Click the soundfile and unleashed the work of a dream-team. John Madara & David White producing. Leon Huff on piano and writing, knitted together by Jimmy "The Wiz" Wisner. Bobby Greg rhythmic drumming, Joe Mack on Bass, Vinnie Bell & Trade Martin on guitar, Panama Francis with the extra percussion and vibes, with Artie Kaplin conducting the horns & sax.. what a team! "Man City" level of expertise ... and it shows which ever side you drop the arm on.

Condition Report

Two neat clean pinks, no writing, stains, sticker or marks, just light storage. Vinyl carries multiple light surface hairlines revealed under direct light, as you can hear both sides play strong, clean & true. Note there is a mild surface ripple on a small area at the run-in and edge of the playing surface. Visible on both sides when angled in the light, this does NOT affect play, is NOT a warp and does not lift. Seems to be a masterplate flaw that does affect the stylus in any way.
