Of Lorraine's 3 RCA releases this is the one I love the most, but is perrhaps the least played by the Northern Soul DJ.

The lead-side "What Can I Do" wonderfully sparkling with all the brilliance the Pied Piper and the Detroit musicians could muster.

Potent rhythmic drumming opens up the way for a Heavenly girl choir to hang aloft, whilst Lorraine Chandler's rich pleading vocal is prompted by Mike Terry's burping baritone sax. Then after an awesome Mike Terry solo, the girls sail up into the studio stratosphere over above the seamless flow of distilled Soul bubbling up from below.

It is records of this calibre that maker you forget every Motown record you've heard, as the Pied Piper sound wafts you off to Northern Soul utopia.

But "Tell Me You're Mine" goes one step further with the same components but this time evem more haunting as Lorriaine delivers a beseeching narrative of hope. Convincing Sister Soul at it's most scintillatin.

Two sides to die for... in a format to die for.. the BLACK RCA STOCKER!
