Listen...and now you're catapulted back to a mid-seventies dancefloor, surrounded by nubile soul-girls spinning around, circle skirts propelled up to their waist. A sight that has never left the euphoric recall from my youth. This UK only 45, is still is a trigger for enthusiastic exuberance today, as Chris Andrews again proves himself one of Britain's most capable writer / producers ever.

This 1969 Brit 45, completely failed upon release, only to be discovered during the frenzied rifling of market stalls, second hand shops in Manchester where Dave McCadden & Steve "Sis" Sayle accually found a copy each at different locations. It was taken to Wigan Casino that weekend for it's first airing. A few others were discovered as word spread, by those relentless countrywide hoards trying to discover the next big tune for the scene that was an exclusive English release. Joining Jason Knight - Love Is Getting Stronger, Kiki Dee - On A Magic Carpet Ride, Tammy St. John - Nobody Knows What's Going On In My Mind But Me, Lorraine Silver - Lost Summer Love, Jackie Trent - You Baby etc. etc. British built songs that nose-dived upon release but had become Northern Soul club favourites, they were out there, they just had to be found. The rest is NS history.

The Sue Lynne "find" was an instant allniter witness drinks parked on the tables, seats vacated and the dancefloor swell to the point of spilling over on the carpeted perimeter.. was a sight to behold. But nothing like the gaggle of beautiful girls elevating their skirts in spinning delight... arms raised and those spinning dolls of desire concentrated every man's eyes in the room.

Near 45 years later this 45 has become a very challenging disc to find, especially in fine clean condition...those hoards of crate-digging optimistic Soulies have long since been dispirited by 10,000th orange RCA by the Archies or Elvis 45 they have momentarily paused over..

Today this is a RARE offering but still provokes the same explosive dancefloor response...
