Hold on tight! you are about to be taken of a white-knuckle ride of real-deal New Orleans Northern Soul! The blistering Andy Rix's prized "Ginger Logan" cover/up "I Know What I Want" is about to invade your calm...

You are not only viewing New Orleans rarest girl-vocal Northern Soul creation but also certainly one of the most elusive of all the Sister vocal Northern Soul 45's ever made. Holding a cult-reputation among the dedicate DJ's and collectors seeking the real-deal rarities, hardly anyone owns.

Again the imaginative writings of George Davis & Lee Diamond whip up a horn driven storm of 60's dance Soul. Blaring horns, persistent piano and squealing girlfriend choruses hit the air, delivering relentless combative Northern Soul riddle with girl defiance.

Marilyn is a girl who knows what see wants giving up statement after statement of independence, self assurance spilling out of ever note... this is powerful stuff. A proper allniter tune that take no prisoners.

Flip it over Deep Soul aficionados will adore the tortured flipside..Deep Soul don't come no rarer than this...

A title that has graced the legendary play boxes of Andy Rix then sold to mighty Kenny Burrell.. after that not many other DJ can boast of ever owning a copy.
