The previously undocumented beyond-RARE First press with release no. 6851 and the stark black background as apposed to the blue and silver landscape of the no.116 release. Killer Memphis double hitter in its rarest form.

It stil matters not which side you drop the needle on with this vocal-group beauty from Ike Noble and team. The result is the same, the gathering gives up, silky smooth exquisitely sung harmony Soul. The topside "Don't Worry About It " offers solid mid-tempo Northern Soul ( a Mick H. and Soul Sam spin ). The flipside gives up delicious 60s Lowrider Sweet Soul dripping with distilled despairing class. listen to the impressive soundfile and prepare to fall in love with this street-level masterpiece.

From the very beginning of Ike Noble's career with his backing group The Uptights he crafts a horn-decorated dance production to carry his beseeching voice, its seamless quality punctuated by a soaring fanfare of trumpets. Giving us top-drawer Northern Soul of the very highest quality... listen and drool

Flip it over, Ike drops into a sullen mood of loneliness, as he portrays his desperate isolation, cradled by a heavenly girl-group choruses smoothing over Ike's pain, for the final perfect embellishment to this sumptuous production.

Two top quality sides on one very scarce disc, both sides written by this Northern Soul idol Ike Noble. No wonder so many DJ's and collectors are chasing this rare double-delight.

So own it wearing its very first black and silver clothes
