Original 1971 1st Detroit press of this favourite Northern Soul Wigan Casino anthem, that still today, receives a highly appreciative response every time it's dropped...

But DJ's beware the only really acceptable way to play this classic is from this original USA press or the 1971 UK Ember 45 and that has nothing to do with OVO guidelines.. the other many releases range from an inferior versions, to a downright laughable and unplayable press on Soul City reissue.

UK Bulldog release is a different mix to the 1975 UK reissue. The Soul City UK press is an utter joke, again a different version and awful sound quality complete with scratchy pops, ticks and crackles... amazingly shabby mastering.

So what ever your preference be for the USA or the UK original on GM or Ember, the first press is crucial to maintain DJ credibility and sound quality.

This GM press has in more recent years, has totally disappeared from the market, now very seldom surfacing for sale.

How pleasing to see this "yellow" delight again, after a few years of absence from our website.and the condition is superb.

Condition Report

Fine clean condition throughout just a few minuscule hairlines on the vinyl plays flawless and those distinctive yellow labels as you can see are unblemished.
