Description

A listing for those vinyl-stalkers seeking out the real-deal Northern Soul classic from the Golden Years of the scene.

From those Golden years of Northern Soul discovery, when Simon Soussan was hunter-gathering from an avalanche Northern Soul dance candidates, after escaping his Yorkshire confines to his new surroundings in the sunny climes of Los Angeles, California. Simon was gorging himself on a mountain of 45's that littered Los Angeles in the early 70's. This is just one of 100's of new "finds" he sent over to the UK for the eager Northern Soul scene to feast upon. A 1966 sister-uplifter, now considered a timeless Northern Soul classic, that just never breaks surface these days; especially in this flawless condition.

The gifted Milers Grayson's penchant to capturing the "Motown Sound" in L.A. was sadly mostly unsuccessful, even adding the compulsory Sax break and the burping bari-tone sax cutting through curtain of strings, failed to draw attention from California Radio Station DJs. Miles even cut a male version by Karl Evans just one release before, aiming for a two prong attack on the senses. Both recordings failed and fell by the wayside. But the Northern Soul scene 7 years later lapped them both up. Both versions played, both extremely popular with the dancefloor. Giving the idea for Simon to reissue, after he approached Skyway Records, re-pressing both versions, an instrumental version on the flipside of the Karl Evans take. Which also received turntable action when the NS "instrumental" was "King" with Northern Soul crowd.

No reissues here today, just the very elusive authentic first press, in just fabulous condition.

This copy is a old record store stock find, in immaculate mint minus condition still housed in it's birth-sleeve.
