Beware of counterfeits, before you here is the rare authentic original 1966 promo copy, with two rarely encountered bright clean unblemished promo labels...

This prolific Californian crooner gave the Northern Soul community so many great recordings to consider, this one being his timeless Northern Soul anthem that cemented his name into NS folklore.

A huge favourite with the dancers and massive kudos for the few DJs who were able to spin this relentless stomper at the Catacombs, The Mecca, The Torch and later at The Wigan Casino, Cleethorpes Pier. As their floors would fill with accomplished dancer able to master the challenges of this all-powerful horn saturated storm of Northern Soul.

It has everything required to destroy the floor. Mel Williams's growling vocal harnesses the thumping backdrop effortless riding the torrent of blaring brass, vibes, enriched by insistent male-vocal-group choruses at every chance they're offering, their oohing and chanting elevates the song until the crowning glory of a triumphant Saxophone break lifts the session into all-time-greatness


In spectacular condition!
