The seductive guitar and Hammond keyboard beckon you to the dancefloor; where you are hit by powerhouse horns and a gravel-coated pleading vocal. A stunning combination that instantly works its way into your heart and feet. To be pleasure there, as Timmie Williams's softly-sanded delivery takes over, then the crowning moment of that killer saxophone intrusion.

A stunning autumn of 1968 creation, a slick New Yorker just oozes cool! An intricate cocktail of Spanish guitar, Hammond keyboard enriched by hard-blown horns gliding into the arrangement. The perfect foundation for a voice as expressive as Timmie Williams is, listen how he weaves his charm into proceedings. A killer sax break soon follows, again beautifully restrained to continue the relaxed mood T.J. has set in place.

It's just so classy, and should never be played on that cheap nasty bootleg on "Soul, why anyone would pollute the turntables or their collection with such a blatant bootleg is rather puzzling. Especially when the gorgeousness label artwork of the original is so very irresistible.

Top tune...and a head-turner is more ways than one.
