A timeless NS classic that has guided so many Northern Soul youngsters into a lifetime of allnghter sessions of dancing to superior, neglected in their homeland USA rare Soul.

Enter Lee David, beckoned by the pounding piano n' brass intro, a starting gun that has signaled a dancefloor invasion ever since it first emerged in British soul clubs in the very early 70s. It is another Northern Soul discovery that over the last 45 years has never once become over-played, tedious or tiresome. It has that subtle magic that always enthralls the audience.

Jazz schooled pianist Jimmy Briggs writes and arranges both sides, with the prolific New Yorkers Garry Sherman and Stan Kahan pooling their considerable forces to produce almighty Big Apple dance-pulses that drive Lee David's vocal forward.

It is not just "Temptation Is Calling My Name" that generate NS adrenaline, "( I Feel A ) Cold Wave Coming On" is also pulse quickening dance fuel. Both sides drip with quality, presence and power. This is old-school Northern Soul that never weakens as the years roll by. I loved it back then and I still adore it now...

Immortal Northern Soul, with that attractive added factor, that you can flip it over for another immediate "rush"...
