When Island abandoned their magnificent SUE label, B&C took up the baton to release USA Soul music on their colourful Action label. Wow what a great job they did. Action is now considered one of Britain's greatest ever imprints. Not only eye-catching with it's iconic red and yellow swirl, a vista I found unmissable whilst diggin' through record boxes of my youth. Today of course you seldom ebcounter any Action 45's in the wild, Let alone the really great ones.

This double helping of Philadelphia Northern Soul surely is one of the great ones. Giving up two of the most uplifting examples you could ever wish to alight the floor with. Norman Johnson at his majestic best, the Showmen supporting him with their insistent rich choruses. Over a vortex of lush strings, the orchestra is whipping up a storm, showered with relentless drum pulses.. creating the perfect Northern Soul fuel to make it a special night of dancing.

Now check out that stunning PROMO label, an old school collector's blood pressure trigger, a heart racing sight perhaps only the seasoned cratediggin' Brits will fully appreciate. But to me and I'm sure many other a thing of beauty; presenting one of the greatest double-siders ever released on these shore.

This 45 has everything, the looks, the sound, the rarity, the panache to grace any collection or indeed DJ set..
