A debut 45 to these pages it’s rarity already underlined by only two recorded internet sales this century.

Same label as the highly sought-after “Georgia Soul Twusters” but this is much rarer!

Utterly obscure artists I’ve never heard of before; Nick Rawls and his Soul Molesters, along with equally mysterious writers and producer. This is how we like it, beyond-rare Northern Soul!

Wailing lead vocal, persistent percussion, blaring brass and a burping saxophone meld into one searing dancer. Primitively energetic, locally raw performance. Dominated by ratting drums driving the dance beat, when the drummer gores solo, it is the signal for the production to lift up to a crescendo. With all component upping their game. Until the saxophone takes over with a killer solo, as we are treated to seriously RARE locasl vocal-group enthusiasm, on an extremely obscure label that just draws the eye in.

If you’re searching for validated rarity couple with raw in-your-face Northern Soul.. this baby ticks all those boxes. Sit it next to the “Georgia Soul Twisters’ in you DJ box... that would be an eye-popping sight..
