The power of the dancefloor, the needs of the Northern Soul DJ plus this 45's growing elusiveness, have pushed the demand and value of this explosive slab of R&B skyward..

A droning whistling hum intro, hanging in the background. But not overwhelming the aggressive snarling, a spitting verbal attack that Lonnie Lester delivers with no mercy whatsoever. What a combination! Chuck Danzy's Funk inclination drives a wild uncompromising backing track, so in tune with Lonnie's attitude saturated style.

It's pure Chicago meat & potatoes R&B aided by Lonnie's Gary, Indiana formative years, the edginess of the neighbourhood hanging on his every phrase..

Northern Soul with balls, a dancefloor detonator... every time!

The Deep soul flip drips in emotion also - do not overlook it.
