MANSHIP MINTS for Christmas.

54 years of age and most likely unplayed!! A listing for those serious British collectors seeking the pinnacle of conditions!A true Northern Soul icon with one of his greatest recordings, in impossible condition.

What can you say about a man, who delivered a vocal that sent shivers through you. A show-stopping voice of mammoth proportions, with his seemingly effortless command of the Big City Sound.. made him the Northern Soul legend.

Here's a song that has lived in the shadows of "The Drifter" for arguably far too long. Listen to Mr. Pollard strolls through the opening bars, then as Jerry Granahan & Arnold Goland signal a quickening of the pace, an amplification of the horns. Ray's vocal responds in a heartbeat. Like the thoroughbred he is, instant acceleration of deliver and not an once of power dropped, as he tears up another Big City Beast Ballad. From the master-craftsmen of the sound New York's Brill building students Jerry Granahan & Arnold Goland never fail to impress.

Without question "The Drifter" is a masterpiece, but also undeniable is the quality that seeps from the grooves of this 1965 follow up to his greatest moment..

No forgetting this copy is pristine!
