When you get the likes of these old-school L.A. soul-stalwarts in the same room, you can expect great things to happen. Time served studio maestros Henry Hank Graham and Sonny Craver, former associates of the Leonard Jewel Smith team of mastercraftsmen do not disappoint as they weave their magic.

But this hidden flipside is so much more than just "special", to the Northern Soul "ear". It is unquestionably one of the greatest Northern Soul Crossover dance 45's ever committed to vinyl!

Triumphant horns open the way for understated pattering bongo pulses, warming the studio atmosphere. The is soon lifted by soulful thermals of stabbing vocal-group harmony. Cradling the silky smooth lead voice through 3 and a half minutes of Northern Soul ecstasy. The lead vocal glides beautifully along a carpet of tricky plectrum picks, persistent bongo rhythms, those considerate horns keep reaching out, delivering more and more breathtaking peaks, ever rising on wave after wave of feelgood joyousness, as all these components seamlessly blend.

Utterly uplifting Northern Soul! The lyrics encapsulating exactly how the Northern Soul dedicate has felt returning in the dawning hours. Only this song reveals it was more that just the pull of the dancefloor that has kept this lady out all night...

Such an amazing song, delicately produced, carefully constructed; resulting in an happily accidental crafting of Northern Soul brilliance.

Hidden on a flipside as they chase the $$ with a Funky Disco dancer a-side "Smoke In The Disco". But even when this team pursue the Disco craze with a "Kool And the Gang" inspired dancer, they do tight, crisp and inspiring highly honed SOLID FUNK!

Two beyond great sides, one very elusive disc for the DJ/Collector who would not lower themselves to buy and play a re-issue... that would just dilute the experience this spine-tingling masterpiece presents..
