Deep Soul, Northern Soul, Philadelphia aficionados and Arctic label addicts.

This is Arctic 139 as the rarely encountered stock copy offering a Philly reworking of Otis Redding's timeless classic. On the original October 1968 press, light blue label dark blue text. A sight you very seldom see, one of those inexplicably rare #'s in the run of this highly desirable label.

One of only two 45's Kenny released for Arctic during those competitive late 60's. Today both 45's are highly prized, but "Looking For a Love" complete with a flipside is easily his rarest. An annoyingly elusive challenge for the dedicated Deep Soul collector to acquire. For the Northern Soul collector the a-side a thumping stompin' version of The Valentinos classic "Looking For For A Love" does turn up on the promo with the blank flip.

Whether you collect Deep Soul, Northern Soul, the Arctic label or just appreciate and recognize seriously rare 45's. This is a complete disc most-all Rare Soul collections are missing..

Check out Kenny's impressive vocal powers, on both fast and slow Soul recordings..
