Description

Always a thrill to meet an old friend from the past.

My steadfast love affair with "Call Me Tomorrow" has now lasted over 45 years, it was one of those 45's that occasionally appeared on "Brian 45 Philips" Friday listings, that was snapped up within minutes of those anticipate 3 sheets of A-4 dropping through the letterbox.

I'd heard it's magical tones on a c90 sales cassette distributed by Simon Soussan in the early 70's. Those whirring guitar riffs and that pleading vocal, had me hooked from the very first play, in a congested white transit van, chugging it's way up the M6 one Saturday afternoon, with the Blackpool Mecca in our sights. After that I suffered from "Major Harris" deprivation for at least 18 months before I eventually owned a copy.

To me this sound, was so very different from the Northern Soul barometer of upbeat Motownesque dancers, it had a different quality the burrowed into you head, replaying it's back to you when least expecterd.
I still feel like that today, when this old friend rarely comes my way.

So different it was one of the very few OKeh Northern Soul 445's that until very recently never got reissued or bootlegged over the decades, retaining it's mystique for that occasional drop into a DJs set that never failed ti delight; as it's cult following grew.

Today to acquire a copy, that has never visited England or the Northern Soul scene before is a rare thing. Although this Promo copy has a few mild surface blemishes from storage, it has certainly never encountered a DJ stylus and plays perfectly, both labels are flawless.
