Description

The next Northern Soul BIG THING!

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

A killer fusion of Northern Soul / Popcorn / Latin meld together into a brilliantly DIFFERENT NS dancer dripping with narcotic qualities. .

The deceptive harpsicord intro, is met by a hypnotic purring growl of former "Crowns" vocalist, losing none of his 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 a 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 - it's utterly BRILLIANT!

Listen and prepare die from the pleasure of wanting!
