Description

Before you is the now legendary January 1966 7" acetate of The Sapphires - Baby You've Got Me - giving up the very essence of girl-group Northern Soul dance - a beautifully labelled acetate of Lori Burton and Pamela Sawyer creation of perfect Northern Soul power, utilizing the awesome backing track of the NS dance-craze stomper "The Slow Fizz".

Jerry Ross re-creating a "rocket ship" level trajectory of thundering horns as the launching pad for Carol Jackson and her two singing partners George Gainer, and Joe Livingston to blast off the most potent of Northern Soul dancers. Real deal foot-to-the-floor experience.

Of course most everyone including me, prefers the enslaving imploring lyrics of "Baby You've Got Me" instead of "Slow Fizz" instructions of dance. But you ignore the immense power Joe Renzetti & Jerry Ross as they summon up the extreme power of the Renzetti Orchestra and the shrill uncredited girl choir.

THIS IS NORTTHERN SOUL and this is a ONE-OFF!
