1968 UK press that was withdrawn by EMI within a few days. CBS took over the "disputed" rights to be moved onto the burgeoning "Soul" dedicated label "Direction" on which it became a monster Soul Club hit, Youth Club favourite and a Disco smash!!

Anybody over the age of 50 will be rocketed back to euphoric recall of their formative years the moment those horns unleash the intro, for insane guitars and exuberant chants and scream as "The Family Stone" inflame a barrasge of Funk/Soul the like of which has never been heard before!!

But wait ..!! The British EMI withdrawn "Dance To the Music" is a completely different mix to the Direction "hit" that CBS put out.

Not only the British first press, not only withdrawn after just a few days BUT A TOTALLY different mix to the one we all know and grew up with.

Little wonder this 45 is consider a top-collectors-piece by dedicated British Soul scholars.
