RCA Grapevine UK released 4 Northern Soul classics during their fledgling year of 1977. This title was the second 45 in the series, helping launch one of Britain's most respected Northern Soul dedicated labels; with only Kent Ace with their City and Town series getting anywhere near to it's collectability. It is of course a polarizing subject, reissuing Northern Soul classics. But with RCA firmly behind this new label, it was instantly accepted into the Northern Soul family, heralded from the start as a label to buy every release on.

It is now a badge of honour to be able to crow, you own a "full set" of this most-attractive of late 70's labels.

So when an original 10" RCA studio acetate surfaces, reverberating with direct-cut sound quality. It's beyond-rare status and desirability will spark interest across the board.

A Detroit delight that was Golden Torch / Catacombs / Blackpool Mecca signature play.

A record that epitomized the very style of Northern Soul that allowed the caged Soul-Boy's heart to run-free; on an amphetamine driven frenzy dance-floor gymnastics. "Quick Change Artist" was the starting pistol for a spectacular vista of Northern Soul dancefloor athleticism. Head-grabbing spins, shoulder high backdrops, circle-skirt twirls and wide arm hand-clapping; jelled the dancers into one foaming mass of gyration.


Detroit Northern Soul at it's most unforgiving, an unstoppable torrent of dance Soul. Then again, what would you expect from a Mike Terry and Ollie McLaughlin blowout.

This 1976 RCA 10" is it's rarest UK form... an rare opportunity to add to your "complete" Grapevine collection.
