The hardest decision with this Chicago rarity is "which side to play first"

Whilst "I won't stop to cry" is a truly glorious male-harmony Northern Soul dancer, the seldom heard "The Devastator" carries a certain edge and more than a nod to their soul-neighbors in Detroit with the male-harmony chorus triggering memories of some Motor-City trophies. Two totally standout tunes on one disc.

Let's start with "Cry" a seamless vocal-group dancer, driven by rattling percussion and subtle horns; all nestling a polished lead vocal, supported by consummate male harmony choruses, fusing into one very slick mid-tempo dancer...

"Devastator" again underlines this group's class, a little more potent with a wordless male chorus that screams "Northern Soul" a two sider to reckon with and elusive enough to be dropped in the rarest sets.

All guided by a man who previously helped constructed Northern Soul classic Saxie Russell's - Psychedelic Soul - then went to take "Stormy" into the sadly one recording by "Lost Family", I say sad, because vocal groups of this calibre deserve more than just a couple of shots and releasing singles..
