Description

The perfect example of underplayed excellence that should be peppering the Northern Soul clubs with it's brilliance, every weekend.

This talented blue-eyed Soul songbird with her 2nd recording in 1967 on one of Detroit's most prestigious labels. From the very start of her career Kris was drawn to Soul music. Unsuccessfully covering Wilson Pickett's "Land Of A Thousand" & Muddy Waters "I Got My Mojo Working"

This song is much more cultured, soaring horns, suspended cooing from an elevated girl-group back-up. Rhythmic bongos patter out the delicious dance rhythms complimented by Kris's gentle throaty vocal. Guided by the great Mike Terry who considers this song has no need for his burping baritone-saxophone prompting. As you can hear it's hard to imagine how this NS dancer could be improved upon.

Sleeping Detroit Northern Soul, that has long enjoyed a huge appreciation from it's sadly meagre turntable outings. It ever there was Northern Soul 45 that comes under the umbrella of "neglected" this superb tune, is surely it!

Listening takes me back, to when many tunes like this got lost in an avalanche of top-drawer Northern Soul that swamped Britain during the 70s..it is now time a St. Bernard was send out to bring Kris Peterson home.

I'm already suffering from pangs of seller regret.
