in 2018, what are the chances of acquiring this 1965 Northern Soul anthem at this level of condition...?

Putting three of New York's most-creative music-men in one room was always gonna produce something very special.

Richie Adams, Jerry Ragovoy & Artie Butler conjure up one of the most instantly recognizable Northern Soul stompers of all time.

Ragovoy summoning up a searing girl-group chorus, Ritchie attacks his own lyrics with screaming enthusiasm; whilst Artie Butler's mastery of the piano, blasts holes in a relentless arrangement. This is an awesome session lifted yet another level by a a strapping saxophone break, then Artie B. is off again, racing into a piano solo with no equals.


.. at it's most compelling... a driving force that has inspired the NS dancefloors of Britain for decades..

How great to hear it again.. and adrenaline rush I thought I'd forgotten, when i found it, repeated when I dropped the stylus on it.

Condition Report

Two flawless promo labels, vinyl that reveals only a wispy hairlines when angled under direct light, all housed in a seldom seen Congress cover. Looks spectacular, plays stunning, this is original Northern Soul Classic collecting at it's most
