"I Went Out Last Night And Tried To See, If Another Woman Could Satisfy Me... " We all remember those iconic opening lines, whilst the pause between record you're wondering what the next record is gonna be, as the DJ mumbles something incoherent - Shane Martin delivers those immortal lines through driving piano note and aerial girl-group cooing.. you stay this is pure Northern Soul delight rings out.

A first line that has just rocketed us all back in time, to the hot summer of 1976 when this scything string monster would provoke dancefloor mayhem; and it sounds just as good today as it did 45 years ago.. Shane's desperate voice prompted by zipping strings, insistent percussion, soaring choruses, following insistent pulsating piano... rhythms

Just like the other Northern Soul "great" he arranged, "Artie Schroeck again crafts the perfect Northern Soul performance from a blue-eyed crooner. Just like he did when he directed proceedings for Paul Anka "I Can't Help Loving You" Artie was a master of the full-on Kitchen-sink arrangement fit for elevating a rich blue-eyed voice through a stomping dance-session!
