MANSHIP MINTS for Christmas - the highly sought after 1978 soulful stepper, hidden on the flipside of a non-hit.

A Brit-produced stroller through soul-sister Heaven; from the desk of Steve Royal who in 1975 debuted the composition with Ester Bydie, a song that sneaked out on to the UK Crystal label, with few people noticing at the time.

In 1978 Mr. Royal revisited this stunning Sister glider for Rita Wright to sing her equally captivating version, to be Rita's only single 45 release. Even though it gave up rare 70's British Soul at it's utmost compelling... An amorous, sultry Soulful sashay of the sexiest kind, an alluring lead voice beckons for your attention, Rita pulling you into her tantalizing web of seduction. Assisted by sirenesque ladies, holding her irresistible tones aloft with their floating choruses.

British Soul has never been so seductive, whether it by Ester or Rita doing the ensnaring, you will be hooked, as the song slowly but surely intensifies, until the lady takes over your consciousness. Purring the "Touch Me - Take Me" so convincingly, impending arousal is just moments away..

This is British Soul at it's most exquisite, the immense Sister vocal is so beguiling, along with such a convincing arrangement; You mind may well be wafted towards the bedroom and not just with Rita... how could you possibly leave that girl choir behind...

This elusive Jet 45 is in spectacular previously unplayed condition, still housed in birth sleeve - as good as it gets.
