Description

Hugely in-demand!

The next Northern Soul BIG THING is already happening!

One of the very most-wanted records in the UK today...a floorpacker that is just setting off on its previously predicted meteoric rise to the top, long validated rarity is gonna take this unique dancer all the way.

A killer fusion of Northern Soul / Popcorn / Latin meld together into decidedly different Northern Soul, a gripping dancer drenched in narcotic qualities. .

The deceptive harpsicord intro, is met by a hypnotic purring growl of former "Crowns" vocalist, losing none of his burbling presence, with the expertise he honed whilst crooning with Richard Berry, Johnny Morris and Arthur Lee Maye, doo-wopping his way through the 50's in California. This session though was ingeniously constructed by New Yorker Morty Craft of Jobel Orchestra fame. Brutal drumming peppers the background, as the harpsicord plays out its beckoning melody.. then Sonny takes it up another notch, towards a tumultuous finale of trumpets mingling with percussion and addictive keyboard, with Sonny's "Big Cat" purring voice leaving you begging for more.

So very off-the-wall - so utterly BRILLIANT you can't help but let it into your life!

Listen and prepare to ache from the pleasure of wanting!
