The talented brother / sister writing / producing team of Anita & Greg Poree craft the most glorious "ahead of its time" Northern Soul Crossover delight, that has been gracing only few privileged rare-soul DJ sets, over the last decade, earning itself a huge reputation as a connoisseur room or Sunday chill-out floor-pleaser. The purist from-the-heart soul, shimmering from the quality only a neighborhood recording can emit. Underlined when two years later, this Jerry Peter & Anita Poree composition was produced by the mighty RCA for inclusion on Friends Of Distinction hit album "Grazing In The Grass" a version that gets absolutely nowhere close to capturing the essence of West L. A.

Such a captivating floater, it repeats itself in your head long after your day has ended. Addictive, simplistic Greg Poree piano pulses, peppered with ringing vibes decorate its journey into you psyche.

Frustratingly rare, bewitching, elegant, narcotic Northern Soul delivered by a convincing hopeful voice of a girl desoperately in love...

A masterpiece of girl-group Northern Soul that seldom turns up for sale.
