A 1978 Chris Spaggins D.I.Y. Cleveland neighbourhood project, erupting in irrepressible energy driven by convincing instrumentation.

A whirling synthesiser swings into the groove, partnered by jazzy keyboard pulses, the pairing rising aloft to be joined by outrageously squealing horns... enter the insistent group vocals all swirling round into a vortex of compelling small label dance Soul.

Big tune in Europe, where the more powerful 70's dance rarities are favoured. No nicey-nicey two-steppers in the heart of the night, for those vibrant clubs. Here's a tune to corral them into the danbce space, an instant dance-space igniter.

Rare, elusive sitting in the DJ boxes of only the elite..

Do not pass by if you like whipping up a storm of modern Soul.
