An all consuming crushing R&B Northern Soul heavyweight! Carried by a beautifully gnarled vocal saturated in defiance. As intrusive horns blast out a trail of destruction for Little Joe to swagger through....oh and how swaggers empowered by his new attitude.

This man surely knew how to serve up an explosive dancer, his other 45 “let’s Start A Romance” is so impressive it has been bootlegged to meet demand.
This 45 has not been reissued in any form, and is significantly rarer than “Romance” just waiting in the wings to take the R&B scene by a storm with the right DJ behind it

Little Joe’s first release of the two he did for Richard Vaughn’s colourful Hollywood label with a huge reputation for supporting local R&B artists. Deep Soul scholars should check out the other side, a fantastic ballad way ahead of its time.
