The seldom seen sister version of the Tommy Marks uncompromising Northern Soul stomper. This take pressed on the 16th. April 1966, sadly fell into instant obscurity. Even in the UK Tommy Marks's version is by far the better known of the two, whilst in my opinion Little Jeanette is the superior slab of Northern Soul.

Her purring smoky vocal perfectly fitting the more considerately paced of the vibe driven arrangement.

The Zel production team really believed in this song, underlined when in July 1969 the team recorded another version with different lyrics but the same backing track. Jo Jo Petite - Joey - was released on Boss Records out of Gardena, California this version whilst again strong Northern Soul lacks the allure of Jeanette's charismatic beckoning.

The more I listen to Little Jeanette the more I become enamoured by her style, her poise and ease she delivers "Crazy Crazy". A neglected allniter candidate, especially for the DJ who enjoys those gems missed by everyone else..

A cool tune saturated in belated possibilities..
