You cannot possibly talk about "Rare and underplayed" Northern Soul without mentioning this awesome NS vocal group dancer featuring the dulcet tones of Northern Soul hero, Morris Chestnut. it's just too good to pass any rare-vinyl conversation by

Morris Chestnut was part of this five man team but the lead voice was provided by a similarly silky pitched vocalist Roy Haggins, supported by David & Robert Jones along with Morris Chestnut who together weave a pulsating Northern Soul dance groove, backed up with a soulful mid-tempo delicacy that has yet to get the turntable attention, it too surely deserves. All guided by the skilled hand of top L.A. arranger and future Motown-wheel James Anthony Carmichael, for Herman Allen label in L.A.

Sound-Masters write their own composition, kick-started by a subtle guitar intro, before James Carmichael summons up an almighty horn propelled arrangement. Lifting it up and away into breath-taking high-octane moments, with crashing crescendos complimented by rich harmony vocals, soaring from one glorious peak to another.

This is real-deal Northern Soul begging the question why this pulsating masterpiece hasn't taken hold of the Northern Soul scene decades ago? The simple answer is, there was never been a consistent DJ push in the past. But now there's the internet to help get it started. A Northern Soul rarity of this quality should never just be hidden away in collections... when it shimmers with blatant power capable of igniting any all-nighter dancefloor.

Then there's the Sweet Soul harmony flipside with a different lead voice, this time David Jones took pole position. to consider, that has again caught my attention and blown me away, after a while of not hearing it.

so now listen to two top-drawer sides begging for some up and coming DJ's with the insight to remind us old-schoolers, how it used to be done..
