A “Holy Grail” perched at the very zenith of NS collectability. This wonderful slab of Philly Northern Soul is not only an absolute mind-blowing vinyl-vista unicorn-rare is only the beginning. It also offers up a Philadelphia vocal group dancer at its most riveting.

A record that hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons, when a few years back it became the most seriously controversial new discovery on the Northern Soul circuit. The "Satan's Breed" became the subject of a clumsy and now tedious scam; when a red label, counterfeit copy was allegedly “found" at Austin Record Show. Not for the first time an unconvincing deception of planting a "fake" 45 in a USA situation...which fooled nobody for very long.

Besides the “find” oddly having wrong label colour, the "fake" copy also never geared the "Paramount" pressing hallmark under the thin modern paper label, so very unconvincing. Thankfully leaving the huge reputation and desirability of this "impossible" disc totally unscathed.

So before you today is one of Northern Soul’s rarest of the very rare, a most-wanted, kudos saturated 45's it is possible to own.

Now listen to the accomplished skills of George Guess as he writes, arranges and produces and most probably sings on this mesmerizing vocal group harmony dancer. One of the very finest 45's I've had the pleasure of hearing in a very long time.

A beseeching lead voice, sails on a wave of finely tuned harmony choruses. The backing track epitomizing the slickness of The Sound Of Philadelphia leaving the turbulent 60's, seamlessly flowing over into the next decade.

Brilliant !

Lowrider and Sweet Soul devotees will also be bowled over by the tight mid-paced mournful despair served up on the flipside. Underlining once again this gatherings ability for impeccable vocal harmonizing. Two stunning sides on a seriously unattainable 45, that so very few collectors have ever owned as the sky blue authentic original 1971 press.

This is Northern Soul DJing and collecting at its utmost challenging.

Way Beyond Rarest Of The Rare ...

Condition Report

two clean labels, a-side vinyl revealing some light surface scuffing plays with the occasional tick or pop not distracting from the brilliance of the music, listen.The flip-side vinyl is a grade higher, less marks with hardly a tick or a pop.
