Description

Label purists may not be attracted to the two promo labels, PROMOTION COPY NOT FOR SALE text has been redacted on both sides. A-side label has a worn FOR DEMONSTRATION USE ONLY NOT FOR SALE sticker strategically placed. Flipside label has a soft 20% h2o stain coming down from the top (see images).

But NS DJ and sound conscious collector, will love the super clean vinyl, strong gloss on both sides, revealing just a few fine surface hairlines under light. PLays loud, crisp and clean.
So very importaht when it is exploding with proper Northern Soul on every note, driven by the production power of Arthur Wright, the ideal backdrop for the unrelenting vocal potency of Mary Love's impassioned delivery, you have destructive top-drawer "Northern Soul" presented here in seldom seen October 1966 Los Angeles promo copy.

Listen to an unparalleled sister dancefloor destroyer that has demolished British dancefloors since the infancy of Northern Soul "The Twisted Wheel" "King Mojo" etc. the top 60s allnite clubs this song was an anthem. Giving up the perfect inspiration for the amphetamine fueled dancers. This is not only devastating Northern Soul dance at it very finest, it is also Mary Love at her most-tortured. Listen as she peppers a monumental Arthur Wright dance creation with despairing, desperate "Gospel" inspired lyrics. Strangely contradicting the joy and inspiration you experience whilst dancing, Mary Love is purging herself of all her ever-mounting pain.

A thundering girl-NS-Anthem, with few, if any equals.

listen and prepare to be inspired..
