The thinking-man's way to own this Northern Soul anthem - and not just because it's so darn gorgeous and extremely rare! But crucially the richly crafted Spanish vinyl gives up beautifully clear fidelity compared with the USA styrene press. So how or indeed why? in 1966 it got pressed in Madrid, Spain in high fidelity VINYL to it. But boy are we all overjoyed it did. The fragility of USA 60's styrene, the inconsistency of Northern Soul stylus, cartridge weight (1 penny or 2?) has taken it's toll over the years; on the number of END copies that actually still play clean and true.

The expertise Motown schooled Robert Bateman crafts not one but two top-drawer Northern Soul dancers for release on New York's highly regarded "End" label. It was sadly for Robert, a total flop.

This rare 1966 Spanish release is a LOUDER, warmer cut, pressed in durable Euro-vinyl, from a masterplate that did nowhere close to the stamping workout, it's USA counterpart went through.

This has fine full gloss vinyl so now hear "Lenny Curtis" at full-bore clarity, pressed in richly honed vinyl, press the soundfile button now.. and prepare for what the two Roberts crafted with Lenny that day. Mr. Bateman & Mr. Mosely are no strangers to soulful excellence and this IMHO the pair's very finest collaboration.

In by far and away it best investment format, that'll last forever...
