From the Soul hotbeds of New Orleans comes yet another Eddie Bo Northern Soul treasure. So seldom seen for sale since Soul Sam first lifted this obscure rarity into the beating heart of the legendary Soul Essence weekencders at Great Yarmouth. Since it’s head turning debut almost 20 years ago, this 45 has rarely come to mark.

A delicious slab of Northern Soul crossover dance, which was an instant sensation; with it’s “explosive” shrill opening, as the vocal-group backing belts out an opening chorus before Percy delivers a feline vocal, oscelateing between a rich purr to a commanding growl. Hear how this little known artist struts his stuff, whilst Eddie Bocage inserts zipping strings and bold horns around this highly impressive voice..

Top drawer Northern Soul crossover that has very little chance of ever turning up again, after those devastating events, of “Katrina” leaving all “clean” New Orleans vinyl, very precious indeed.

And this is one of the city’s very best NS offerings..
