We have talked about the fall-out this monumental Northern Soul instrumental ha on me personally a few before. But influential Northern Soul moments, you can never forget, as they did change your life. This 45 jolted me into silence, as our table chattered away, talking amphetamine induced nonsense..

Thar unusual genial intro, instantly caught my ear, so out of sync with the rest of the records I'd heard that day inside Whitchurch All Dayer.. slowly building on ripples of Harp just knew something was about to happen as the rhythmic rattle of drumsticks intensified.. then the horn blasted through the calm... unified jaw-drops surrounded me, as we all knew Ian Levine had just dropped a Northern Soul hand-grenade into the crowd.


"WOW what's this tune?" ...and I wasn't the only one now standing in open-mouthed astonishment.. Ian Levine had announced it with his usual gusto, "The End Of The World" by The Explosions. What a great title; Announcing it as it's gonna be the biggest, most-wanted sound of that summer 1973.... he wasn't wrong either..

I do delight in Northern Soul classics with the capacity to take you back to the times, when everything was new to your ears, instantly branded into your brain; we were already making plans to be at the Blackpool Mecca the next week.

back in those Golden days the cover-up tease with it's weird and wonderful christenings were part of the joy of being part of Northern Soul. You planned your social life around being able to hear & dance to these sounds again as soon as possible.

This promo copy, that has taken me all the way from my vinyl strewn desk, to Whitchurch 1973 is flawless - two perfect labels, play surfaces hardly reveal a blemish, plays perfect..

A listing especially aimed at Northern Soul old-school collectors who want to leap into their virtual time-machine, that records of this calibre give you the starter key to..
