Description

A highly sought-after Northern Soul floor-filler and a knee-taking heart-breaker on one very elusive disc!!

This gargantuan vocal group dancer, a long term Northern Soul classic from one of the heroes of our scene. This is of course currently their most-wanted 45... a guaranteed dancefloor detonator, backed up with a perfectly executed Memphis Deep Soul ballad, showcasing why this group are universally considered one of the greatest Soul teams ever to perform..

"Do You Love Me Baby" encompasses all their varied vocal tones and pitches, welling up into a wall of harmony with Soulful snarls accentuating the high points, and rich bass voice adding extra depth and meaningful Soul
This is truly a masterclass in vocal-group NS dance... heralded for decades as a must-own.

As is the sublime cocktail of Memphis Deep Soul blended with Chicago styled harmonies, a flipside of distilled harmony class with the power to change your mood.

Putting this level of talent in a studio with the two Memphis magicians Chips Moman & Tommy Coigbill, there could only be one outcome. Soul Heaven awaits, which ever side you drop the stylus on..





Condition Report

Two clean labels, tiny bb drill, vinyl carries strong gloss, revealing only a few very soft hairlines. A-side has a low split second crackle on the lead in, then plays loud clean and true. The delicate ballad flipside plays perfect.
